If you are determined to take a kitten into the house, youshould take care of the early purchase of some things that your pet needs from the very first minutes of the appearance in the house. These are bowls, a tray, a filler for a cat's toilet, a litter, a pencil sharpener, toys. If the kitten is very small (up to 1 month) - you need a baby formula. In advance, even before the kitten crosses your threshold, take care to remove the wires of electrical appliances from the floor, and teach the children that the kitten is not a toy, he also has the right to rest and sleep. You should also look under your feet and gently close and open the doors.
Kittens are often given in a strange house in a monthage. But this does not mean that you got a completely independent cat on your hands, at this age you need a very careful care of the kitten. 1 month is, you can tell, still an infantile age. Despite the fact that the brisket cheerfully and briskly runs, his stomach, heart, immunity, and psyche are not yet strengthened. Once in a foreign apartment, the kitten may fall into shock. Do not be surprised if the animal does not eat, drink, or go to the toilet in the first day. Let him sit in some dark corner. The less you touch it, the faster it will master. Children's curiosity, in the end, will entice him to explore a new world.
Choose a place in your apartment,quite secluded, shaded, with fresh air, but without drafts, and place there a box with low sides and litter. Do not buy a cat house before acquiring a kitten: some individuals suffer from congenital claustrophobia and will never love such designs, preferring to rest on a closet or sofa. Next to the cat's place, adjust the claw so that the animal, waking up, can satisfy its instinct to sharpen its claws. Care for the kitten also involves caring for its claws. Later you will need scissors for claws, but small kittens to cut claws is not necessary.
The kitten should have at least 3 small bowls for eating. How to care for the monthly kitten and what to give him to eat - tell the owner of the cat, mother or breeder. Do not get carried away with solid fodder, even if the label indicates that it is a kitten feed. Small teeth can not yet crack dry balls, and a tender ventricle - they can digest. Let's make kashki from children's mixtures such as "Kid", cooked sausage "Children's", "Doctor's", boiled chicken meat. Care of the kitten requires frequent (5-6 times a day) feeding and small portions. Later, you should increase the portions and reduce the amount of feed.
The toilet tray must be lowbumpers, so that the kitten was able to get there independently. Take the owner of the mother cat or breeder some used filler and put it together with a clean filler in the tray. Kittens have a fast metabolism, and already 15 minutes after eating, you can put them on a pot. Spend a wet finger in the kitten on the genitals - this will cause a reflex urination. Such a proper care of the kitten will ensure you subsequently a good smell in the apartment, and you and your cat will keep your nerves. Do not hit the kitten, if he has poked out the tray. If you found him behind this case, clap your hands and say in a loud voice "Fu!", Then plant in the tray.
Wool, ears, eyes and teeth also require yourcare. Care for a kitten, especially a small kitten, does not involve frequent bathing. If you picked up a street kitten, which you just need to wash, make sure that it does not cool down: let it dry out in your bosom. All cats, regardless of the breed, need to be combed. Ears and eyes should be cleaned at least once a month with cotton wands: the ears with baby oil and the eyes with warm water.
Toys buy special for cats. Threads and a Christmas tree "rain" kittens can strike or swallow them. Training kittens should be given no more than 15 minutes daily, because they quickly get tired.
