How to choose food for a kitten?

Proper nutrition is the basis of a pet’s health, therefore, a decision should be made when deciding how to feed a kitten.

From the first days of life and, as a rule, up to 4-6 weeks, the kitten eats mother’s milk. The milk secreted by a cat in the first days of a kitten’s life is called Colostrum and contains a large number of antibodies. Thanks to this antibody-rich milk, the kitten receives primary immunity from the mother. In the future, the level of antibodies in milk gradually decreases, but always remains sufficient to maintain health and prevent infections.

Wet feed conversion
At the age of 4-6 weeks, you can gradually accustom the kitten to self-nutrition, offering him a little wet food. It is important to remember that mother-cat milk is a high-calorie product containing 2 times more protein than cow’s milk, as well as rich in nutrients, vitamins, essential fatty acids, necessary for the growth and development of a kitten.

Castration, sterilization, aftercare

For starters, let’s figure out the terminology.
Castration is the removal of reproductive organs. In males, the testes (testicles) are removed, and in females, the uterus and ovaries are removed. The purpose of elective surgery in animals is to correct sexual behavior and eliminate the ability to reproduce offspring. Sterilization is a procedure aimed solely at eliminating or temporarily inhibiting the reproductive function of animals; sexual behavior and all secondary sexual characteristics remain unchanged. In the case of surgical intervention, manipulations are performed that are not related to the removal of the testes and ovaries.

Thus, sterilization of animals is inappropriate, since it does not meet the task – does not change sexual behavior and does not eliminate other unpleasant sexual characteristics (male urine retains a pungent odor). In the vast majority of cases (99%), veterinarians resort to castration of animals: castration of females and castration of males. Continue reading
