What should be prepared for the appearance of a kitten house?
Examine the shopping list for the kitten and make a plan for preparing the apartment for the appearance of a small tenant.
Surprisingly, such a small pet will need a lot of things. What items for care, feeding and games will be useful to you? Going to the pet store, bring along a shopping list for the kitten so you don’t forget anything!
What you need to buy at a pet store
You should not choose to carry “for growth”: give preference to boxing of a small size, otherwise the kitten will feel uncomfortable. Over time, you will be able to buy a larger carrying.
Think in advance why, in addition to the trip from the breeder to the new house, will you need boxing? If you are planning a long trip with a pet, choose a plastic frame carrying. When traveling short distances it is more convenient with a box made of thick fabric.
Bowls for food and water.
You will need three containers: for water, wet and dry feed. For dry food, a “drive” is perfect, which can be immediately filled with a large number of “crackers” that spill out into the tank in portions. The drinking bowl should be large enough so that the kitten always has access to water.
Ask your breeder in advance what feed the kitten is currently eating. And, even if you do not agree with the choice and plan to change the product, for the first time, focus on the diet that the kitten is used to.
A sharp change in food can lead to intestinal colic, vomiting or diarrhea, so just mix the new food with the usual one, gradually changing the ratio in favor of the food you want to transfer the pet to.
Give preference to a small tray to make the kitten feel comfortable. Remember that cats tend to scatter the filler during instillation, so pay attention to closed models of trays equipped with a cat door.
From the whole variety of excipients, make a choice based on the principles of pet safety. For kittens who love to try their teeth, a wood filler is suitable: it absorbs odors, does not require frequent changes, and is safe for your pet. Over time, you can pick up a different type of filler if you want.
With this purchase, many decide to hold off, but the cat tree immediately solves many problems: its “trunk” and “branches” are made of material suitable for the claw point, and the numerous levels and steps will give the kitten the opportunity to splash energy without risking the state of family values like loved ones vaz.
Very soon, the kitten will remain at home alone. Provide him with fun for the whole day, leaving a sufficient number of different toys. Balls, mice, “cat labyrinth” are suitable toys that not only entertain, but also develop dexterity, jumping ability and strength.
Although cats are not the most ardent admirers of water, sometimes they still need to be bathed. Human shampoo is not suitable for this, if only because cats and we have different skin pHs.
Until six months, kittens do not fade, however, it would be right to immediately accustom the pet to grooming. Choose a soft brush or a mitten brush.
What should be done to make the house comfortable and safe for the kitten?
Take care of security.
All windows should be equipped with a strong protective net to protect the pet from falling.
Get a shoe cabinet.
The kitten will not resist the temptation to taste your favorite shoes. To protect the shoes and the kitten itself, which can catch the infection brought from the street on the soles, remove the shoes in an enclosed space.
Consider placing a tray and bowls
Toilet and food should not be located in close proximity to each other. When choosing a place where the tray will be located, remember that this room should always remain open.
Prepare the “first room.”
To make the kitten easier to adapt to a new place of residence, first place it in an isolated room. Put water, food and a tray here. In an hour and a half, when the kitten gets a little accustomed, gets used to new smells, it can be allowed to explore the whole apartment.
