Are you excited about the kitten that you just brought home? You surely are! Kittens are cute and they can be delightful pets. But just like other animals, you will need to take good care of them.
You want your cat to be healthy, happy and well-adjusted to your home and your family. This takes some patience and some caution.
Cats tend to learn how to interact with the world within the first 12 weeks of their lives. This means that you will need to train and get your kitten ready for your home before it is 12 weeks old. Of course, you can still train an older kitten, but the first 12 weeks are definitely crucial. If you teach your cat during this time what you expect from her, your work will definitely become much easier later.
But what do you do? Do you need to bathe your cat? Do you brush her teeth? How do you keep her safe indoors and outdoors? Do you clip her claws? How do you keep her entertained? So many questions can definitely leave you confused!
But worry not; this handy guide will help you get started on raising a happy, health and well-adjusted cat.
