Beginners Kitten Care Tips

That cute and fuzzy kitten you brought in to your house isn’t going to remain that way, believe it or not. It will need some special care and the right conditions in order to have the healthiest life as possible and to live a long time. Whether you got this kitten for yourself, your child or as a gift to your spouse, you will need to take note of a few things that will be in your future as a new pet parent. Taking care of a kitten isn’t hard, but with a few tips it is just a little easier.

When There’s One, There’s Two

Since you just got over the expense of bringing one kitten in to your house you probably aren’t going to like this tip. When you have a kitten and you and the spouse or kids are gone during the day, you should probably get a second kitten. They are social animals and do better with a buddy. Getting two kittens will give them a companion during the day ad keep them occupied and out of trouble. And since you will already be buying litter and cat food, it really won’t be a whole lot different in your month to month expenses. Think of it as a cost saving measure to keep your solo cat from breaking objects, chewing furniture and ripping up carpet. Because one lonely cat can do all of that and more.

Get a Vet

Cats in the past haven’t traditionally gone to a vet as much as a dog because people used to think of them as barn only cats. Or once cats were declawed and or fixed, they didn’t need to go to the vet if they were kept indoors. This isn’t always true. A cat will need routine shots and checkups just like any other pet does. They can have tooth and sin disorders creep up and regular checkups will catch those things before they become a problem. Kitten Care Tips For Beginners

Also, getting your cat used to the carrier and going on car rides early might help when you need to go later on in life. A cat who has gone on several car rides when they were small might not – MIGHT not – protest so much as an adult.

Brush Frequently

Cats need to be brushed in order to prevent hairballs. Cats do like to bathe themselves, but if you brush them regularly from when they are a kitten, they won’t mind it as they grow up. Removing whatever hair you can will eliminate how much they ingest. They less hair they ingest, the less hairballs you have to deal with on the floor.

Play Time

Cats need play time too. It might come in the form of chasing a laser around the floor or with a piece of string. Provide your cat with play mice, balls and other toys and interact with them when you can. Playful kittens grow up to be happy and well adjusted cats.
