Looking after an animal of any age is always going to be a challenge. This challenge is most clear when we’re talking about younger animals, for example kittens. Kittens, like all young animals, require a lot of attention and special care, especially if you want them to grow up into healthy happy pets.
There are lots of aspects of kitten care you need to think about, here are three of the most important:
Nutrition is extremely important, especially when we’re talking about young, developing animals. You can get special food that is formulated to help kittens on their path to adulthood. Cats can eat normal food as-well, however this can be very effectively supplemented with specialist kitten food.
You should seriously consider spaying or neutering your pet. It’s your choice as a pet owner, however there are clear advantages to “fixing” a young cat. For instance, a pet that’s been spayed will not go onto heat and so not experience any of the disruptive behaviors associated with this.
It’s never too soon to start building the emotional bonds between you and your new cat. You can begin to play with your pet, using simple toys like pieces of string, which will teach your cat the basics of dexterity and encourage a long term emotional relationship between you and your animal.
Owning a kitten can be daunting, however as long as you treat them with lots of care and loving-attention they’ll grow up as happy and as healthy as can be.
