Getting a new kitten is one of life’s greatest joys. They’re adorable, soft and cuddly. They always have that “aww” emotion stuck to them. Kittens being the cute ones can melt even the toughest hearts. It’s important to take kitten care as a priority and get things off on the right foot, and the food and care you provide will make a big difference in your kitten’s health and happiness. Here are some things you can do:
- Keep an eye out for cat’s body language
A well-socialized cat is spotted by its nature, the way it adapts to new circumstances and interacts well with a variety of people and animals. It is suggested to keep an eye on the kitten’s body language when exposing him to new experiences. A happy cat would have a relaxed body, purr, and have its ears and tail up.
- Get a Brush:
Did you know proper hygiene is an important part of a cat’s overall health? It actually matters how much hygiene is being maintained around your cat. In some cases, a young kitten may need assistance in learning to clean and care for itself, make sure you look after it. Introducing a kitten to the brush and grooming them at a young age is the best thing a pet owner can do to help teach them proper hygiene.
- Make Playtime a Priority
Kittens are full of energy all the time. No matter what time it is, you’ll find them ready to play with you. Also, they may choose to play all night, waking up their owners. To keep a kitten from playing in the middle of the night, a very common thing which we as humans do as well is to do a lot of exercises before going to bed.
- Surveillance of Pet Interactions
If you’re thinking to take your kitty in a bunch full of new people, who may have to think about it again! Cats should be introduced slowly and cautiously. If there is another pet at your friend’s place, make sure both pets meet each other under the supervision of their respective pet owners.
- Always have fresh water on hand, and inspect it for cleanliness throughout the day.
It is important to keep your kitty hydrated. However, there is no other liquid required other than water. Water works best for any cat. There are many people who think cow milk is good for cats and fees it to them as well. But the truth is it can cause stomach pains in those little kitties.
