Choose a kitten between two and eight weeks of age. Be sure the kitten has plenty of contact with people and a stimulating home environment. Kittens need to meet, sniff, touch and play with all kinds of people and other animals so that when they grow up they can be relaxed and friendly cats.
You can train your kitten to sit and come and use the scratching post. Training builds a strong relationship between the two of you. Keep training sessions short. Reward the kitten when you see good behavior and you see the kitten doing things you like.
Keeping your kittens safe from household hazards. You need to crawl on your hand and knees look up, look down and look all around to find all the things they could get into or get hurt by. Like: electrical cords, curtain cords, thread, string, needles, plastic bags and hidden holes.
Play with your kittens a couple of times a day. Make no mistake cat needs interactive play and exercise. Have your cat bat at a feather, wand or chase a ping-pong or a crinkle ball down the hall, give it puzzle toys to challenge the brain and a tall condo to encourage jumping and climbing. Rotate the toys that way the cat always has something new and different to play with.
Put a breakaway collar on the cat with a tag with your name and cell number on it.
Have your kittens microchipped, in case the kitten gets lost.
