How do you take care of a kitten?

Daily cat care includes feeding, proper hygiene, adequate beauty and maintaining a proper environment. Vaccination needs to be considered early, and sterilization and deworming also need to be considered early. Socialization and small box training also need to be considered. Of course, finding veterinarians and organizing pet insurance is also important to the health and well-being of pets. The kitten will thrive in a spacious, non-hazardous environment with plenty of seating areas, hideouts and climbing.

If you want to buy a kitten, you will understand that bringing a kitten home is exciting and a little scary. Our cat care guide will help you give your cat the best life to start with and avoid any potential problems later.

Up to eight weeks - before you take the kitten home

No matter where your kittens come from, they should do something before you take your kitten home, including:

  • First kitten vaccination
  • Start socializing and actively introduce new situations and new talents
  • Start trash can training

Prepare for your home:

  • Give your kittens plenty of room to play, as well as places to rest and hide
  • Purchase toys, scratch columns, litter trays, climbing locations
  • Put the trash in a quiet and accessible place
  • Take a blanket from the kitten's first home to make it familiar
  • Make sure there is no danger
  • Looking for a vet
  • Buy pet insurance

Eight to twelve weeks - take your kitten home

For your kittens, this is an important moment, and what they are learning and experiencing will affect the future. Keep socializing and let your kittens actively engage with the following experiences:

  • Other healthy fully vaccinated cats and dogs, tabby cats sitting in purple bins
  • Other people and children
  • Gradually introduce them to their cat carrier, groom, pick up, handle and examine their ears, eyes and other body parts
  • Establish a consistent set of rules and rules, such as not allowing them to enter certain rooms. Reward good behavior and ignore bad behavior
  • Feed them the food they eat as before, and keep the same rules with small, regular food
  • If you have any questions, please contact a professional

After 12 weeks

Now your kitten needs a second vaccination. You should also register them in the sterilization room (4 months) and ask your veterinarian about the worm.

  • Spend a lot of time playing with your kitten every day. - Psychological stimulation is also important, so play some games, such as hiding food.
  • Try to train some kittens, such as letting them come to you when you call.
  • Remember, growing up and learning is very tiring, let your kittens take regular breaks and keep short training sessions.

After six months

  • The kittens are still learning, so keep a positive experience.
  • If you have concerns about the behavior of your kitten, talk to your vet.
  • Ask your veterinarian about their changing dietary needs.

By maintaining a positive experience from day one, you will help your kitten grow into a confident adult cat that will make you and your life more enjoyable.
