Kitten pet care is something you will need to consider for your new kitten. It is true whether your kitten is a youngster or an adult.
Like any pet, your kitten needs a lot of love, attention, and care. If you cannot devote that kind of time to your kitten, then it is probably a good idea to have another kitten. You will find that your kitten is much easier to look after.
There are different ways to handle a kitten. Many people put the kitten in a pet carrier or some other type of kitty crate, but there are several things you can do which are much better for your kitten’s welfare.
Let Your Kitten Play
The first is to allow your kitten to play. Playtime is a great way to teach your kitten how to play and also to help with their exercise needs. You might find it beneficial to get a kitten as a cat toy as well.
Cats do not like toys, so you might want to get cat furniture for your kitty to make sure they have somewhere to play in the house that isn’t too rough on their teeth. Kittens that play with cat furniture don’t get injured as often. Kittens will usually have to playmates in the cat furniture.
A great tip for kitten’s playtime is to make sure that everything is safe. Your kitten does not need to be walking around any kind of “dirty” substance. No matter what it is, make sure your kitten is okay and that nothing can cause any harm.
Special Training Litter Pan
You can use a litter box or a special training litter pan, which helps train your kitten to urinate in its container instead of on the floor. Litter box training will help eliminate accidents at the end of the day when your kitten has already played. It is especially important if you have an adult cat, which can end up destroying kitten litter boxes.
Most pet stores sell plenty of kitty toys, which are great for your kitten. They are great for kids and can keep them busy, and the kittens like to stick them into their mouths when they play. But, make sure that they are made for kitties!
Kitten crates are a good idea for smaller kittens or ones that are just beginning to hunt for their own food. A kitten that goes to sleep in a kitty crate will be much happier, as he will feel secure.
Kitten litter is not necessary for kittens, but it is helpful for them to use every day. You might want to ask the store clerk if they sell cat litter to help you decide how much kitten litter to buy, and how often to change the litter.
Separation Anxiety Training
When your new kitten starts to show signs of separation anxiety, go over their training with them. Trying to avoid being that close to the kitten is fine if they can’t touch it, but make sure they know that you are there to keep the kitty company.
As your kitten grows, it will have its learning curve. It is normal for your kitten to be shy or timid for awhile. In the beginning, it is best to let the kitty take the lead, and just do what they want to do, as they figure out how to behave.
