Learn to Care for a Kitten

Whether you've just adopted a kitten into your home or are thinking about it, there's a lot you need to know. In this AnimalWised video, you'll learn everything you need to know about how to care for a kitten.

Their diet, hygiene, education, socialization, habits and health are key areas that we need to focus on.

By adopting a kitten, we take it upon ourselves to take care of all their basic needs and do everything we can to help them lead happy and healthy life. It means knowing what your basic needs are and how you can meet them.

One of the most important things to do is to arrange to take your cat to the vet for a general checkup. Your veterinarian can give you advice on basic care for your kitten, as well as administer the necessary vaccinations and deworming treatments.

In the meantime, some of the basics of kitten care that you will need to consider include:

Nutrition

Kittens should be fed a combination of high-quality commercial kitten foods to ensure they receive a balanced diet. Avoid giving cow's milk to kittens, but always make sure they have access to clean, fresh water at all times.

Litter

Although your cat will want to share your bed, it's important that you also provide comfortable, dry bedding. Use bedding that is safe, easy to clean and dry, and place the bed somewhere comfortable and private.

Sandboxes

Set up a litter box in a quiet, private place so your cat can use it when he needs to go to the bathroom.

Game time

Playtime is important for the bond between you and your cat. Kittens are very playful and curious and love to expend some of their energy chasing cat toys and interacting with their owners.

Try rotating different types of cat toys and trying out different games so your cat won't get bored. Toys can include hunting and catching toys; toys in which you can put delicious treats and puzzle feeders.

Cleanliness

Regular brushing (gentle brushing) is important, especially for medium and long haired cats. Start brushing your cat early on so it becomes an enjoyable bonding activity and part of routine care.

Grooming should always be comfortable for your cat. Avoid pulling your hair or making sudden movements.

Fur mats and tangles may need to be carefully cut using blunt-tipped safety shears. Always point the scissors away from your cat and make sure it doesn't touch the fur.

In general, cats don't need to be bathed and most cats can find it quite stressful. Therefore, generally avoid bathing unless your veterinarian recommends it for medical reasons.

Reward Based Training

This type of training involves rewarding your cat for performing a "desired" behavior. Rewards can be tasty cat food, verbal praise, or petting. "Rewards" positively reinforce the desired behavior and increase the likelihood that your cat will replicate the behavior.

Reward-based training also usually involves ignoring "unwanted" behaviors. For example, playtime is a good time for you to teach your cat manners.

The games can get a little intense and challenge at times; make sure playtime is over if he is scratching hard or biting. This way, your cat will quickly learn that he does not call attention to "unwanted" behaviors such as scratching or biting hard and will tend to stop these behaviors quickly.
