Kitten care, How to take care of kittens


Kitten care - Nutrition
The Right Food for Your Kitten: Congratulations on being a kitten owner! This is a special time for both of you, filled with opportunities to start your kitten's life with her best paw forward.
Your kitten may be small and cuddly now, but before you know it, your grown-up cat will be pouncing around. To ensure your kitten will be a happy, healthy cat for years to come, it's important to recognize her kitten-specific needs now. All kittens need the basics - precise nutrition, time to sleep and play, and lots of love - but kittens have individual needs, as well. Cat owners tend to think of these early years as the "healthy years" and may not give enough consideration to feeding practices. But because of features like size, breed, age, environment, exercise, heredity and others, a "one size fits all" approach to nutrition just won't work. Improper feeding can increase your kitten's risk of obesity, poor muscle and bone development, and poor immune response.

kitten needs precise levels of essential nutrients to stay her healthiest throughout life. Her body needs a kitten food to provide taurine and other nutrients she needs for proper growth and development.

As you care for your cat, it's important to remember that her needs change as she grows. Caring for your cat according to her lifestage means you're giving her the best care throughout her life.


Kitten care - Weather
Summer sun can give us all a boost after a long, hard winter but many pets need special care to ensure they enjoy the warm weather safely.
Any area of the skin with a thin covering of hair can be prone to sunburn. Don't assume that your pet will be sensible - many won't seek shade even if when it is very hot. Put high-factor sunscreen lotion, one that would be safe to use on a child, on your cat's ears to protect against serious sun damage - taking care of white cats in particular who are especially vulnerable. Alternatively, keep your cat indoors when the sun is at its hottest.

Kitten care - Training & Behavior
Litter box training is relatively simple for most kittens, since they have an innate desire to eliminate in material in which they can scratch and cover urine or stool. Simply providing such material in a convenient location is often all that is needed. Put litter boxes in locations that are easy for your kitten to reach. The rooms you choose for the litter boxes should be quiet. Avoid areas near noisy appliances or where your kitten could easily be ambushed by the family dog.
To keep your kitten from returning to an unacceptable area and resoiling, be sure to clean up the elimination odor with a good commercial product. You may also want to temporarily block access by moving furniture over the area or closing the door to the room. Since most pets won't eliminate where they eat or play, moving your kitten's food bowls and toys to the area may help. Do not use any type of punishment or scolding, as this approach almost always makes the problem worse
