The first rung on the ladder toward getting a good pet cat is choosing a healthy kitten. Visit a litter of kittens about fourteen days before they will be ready to leave their mom. They will be six weeks old. Ask permission to pick up the kittens and be very mild when to take action. Ensure that a kitten has clear, dazzling eye and a bright, full jacket. Check the skin under the hair for any problems such as sores, rashes or bald areas. You want to choose a kitten that has healthy skin area.
It is extremely important to start out out with a friendly cat. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will expand up to be always a difficult feline at best. At most detrimental, the kitten won't become a friendly, loving dog or cat. After you have chosen a kitten that you like, make arrangements to pick it up when it is prepared to leave its mom (when it is about eight weeks old). A day or two once you get your new kitten, take it to a vet (an pet animal doctor). The veterinary will give it the first in a series of shots to safeguard it against common cat diseases. Tell the veterinarian if you intend to let the kitten outdoors. If you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may need a shot to safeguard it against rabies.
