Looking After Your Kitten

Jun 23 2023

The joys of life having your kitten, and all is new and fresh. So how do you look after a kitten to get the best enjoyment and long-term bond?

First, do you know if the kitten has been chipped and had any vaccinations?

Travelling with a kitten. For safety you need to have a secure cat travel box with room for blanket or towels. Cats can stress very easily especially if they are away from their mother and other siblings. They find themselves with towering bodies.

In the first few days they need to settle in and build the trust with you. So a quiet place is recommended and not too many visitors. The temptation to cuddle a lot can be an issue.

They need room to play and encourage to do so. They will more than likely sleep 20-24 hours a day. When feeding a kitten, kitten milk is best with soft kitten food, sliced meats. Although if you start feeding them on only human meets, they will not eat cat food later in life.

Fresh kitten food is good for nutrients you need to know what they had been feed on from previous owner. So you know what to start feeding them, cats are fussy with what they eat and like variety.

Be careful when introducing to other cats in the household because newcomers may not be welcome. This needs to be done gradually and need to be supervised with some older cats they could kill the newcomer.


Cats like routine and do not like changes in the household so they need to know where their litter tray food and water is, if this is moved, they will often go back to that spot kittens will learn from their mother when using a tray, you can teach a kitten by showing them what to do with their paws in the tray. Be aware some litter can be harsh on little paws which will result in them not using the tray.

Cats like to bond with one person and will choose who they connect with this can result in jealousy and conflict depending on the attention received they also like to have attention and demand play etc on their terms and will often become the boss.

Kitten needs to be a month old then worming your kitten is essential then flea treatment 6-8 weeks do not do both together this will be too strong and can cause health issues.

Then the kitten will require further worming treatment every couple of weeks up to 4 months old.

At four months would clean teeth once a month and a couple of times a year wash them flea shampoo this gets rid of loose fur and conditions their skin.

If you notice fur going from the back of the kitten this often means allergy to fleas.

If at any time you take on a young cat then you need to keep them in for at least a month to get them used to you, feeding times and water and to let them know this is their new home since cats are known to try and find their way back to their present address if they do not feel secure or belong.
