When people first take their kittens home from adoption shelters or pet stores, it is important that they understand the needs of the young bundles of fur they’ve just added to their families. First, kittens ought to see vets so that the practitioners can conduct preliminary exams on the young felines to determine their overall health needs and check for diseases. Moreover, vets can offer key suggestions regarding food and preventative health care.
One major hurdle in a kitten’s early education centers on litter box training. In most cases, cats naturally use the litter box, but this is by no means always the case. For instance, a kitten may not know where the litter box is and end up eliminating in places they ought not to.
Caretakers should show their kittens the litter box and ensure ease of access. Place the litter box somewhere quiet and private where kittens can feel comfortable. Also, cats are often less willing to use a dirty litter box. Be sure to clean it regularly.
