Empreinte de chat Preparing for your new kitten’s arrival Empreinte de chat

It is important to kitten proof your home and also check out the list of plants which are toxic and non toxic to cats, if you have plants which are toxic to cats ensure they are out of reach.
There are safe alternatives for your plant to nibble on should the kitten want some greenery.
Before the kitten arrives home, make sure you have set up a comfortable room for your kitten to be confined in for the first few days, just while he settles in.
You can gradually open up your house over a period of a few days.

Before you bring a new kitten into your home, it’s important to make sure everyone in the house is ready.
By planning ahead, you can ensure the smoothest possible transition for your new pet and the whole family.


Kitten Proof

Make sure any area the kitten will be allowed to roam is safe.
Remove breakables, plants, garbage, as well as anything you don’t want chewed or scratched.
Tape down any accessible electric cords so they can’t be gnawed on.
Remember that cats can reach a lot of places, so get down on your hands and knees and look around from the floor, as well as checking high shelves and ledges as a final check that the area is kitten ready.
Finally, set up a litter box in a quiet, easily accessible location.

Establish Roles

Cleaning the litter box

Cats usually instinctively take to using a litter box to go to the bathroom, but if the litter box is dirty, your kitten may look for a cleaner bathroom, including house plants, clothing, and bedsheets.
To help avoid this make sure the litter box is scooped every day, and the box is completely emptied, scrubbed with soap and water, and filled with new litter once per month.

Feeding

Proper feeding amounts and a consistent feeding schedule will help maintain an ideal body condition.
Having one feeder in the house will avoid the risk of skipped meals as well as double feedings.

Playing and Grooming

Cats can be solitary creatures, but regular play will help to keep them fit and happy.
Studies show that regular brushing will help socialize your kitten, can help prevent hairballs, and has been proven to have a number of health benefits in people, so it’s a win-win-win!

What should my kitten eat?

It is best to stick with the food your kitten has been eating in his previous home. If you want to change to another brand, do so gradually so you don't cause a tummy upset.
There are many premium brands of food on the market which are especially made for kittens.
It isn't necessary to give your kitten cow's milk and in fact may cause a tummy upset.
Instead, provide your kitten with a bowl of clean, fresh tap water. Water should be changed daily.

Settling your kitten in:

Your kitten may be unsettled for a few days and miss her mum and littermates.
So it is up to you to help ease the kitten's transition into your new home.

Once your new kitten arrives home, confine your kitten to one room with a litter tray, food, water and a comfortable bed and give him/her some time to become familiar with their surroundings. Cats are fastidiously clean animals and it is necessary to make sure the food and water bowls need to be kept as far away from the litter tray as possible. After a few days and when the kitten is well settled, you can gradually increase the area your kitten can explore.
Some ways to make the kitten settle in quicker include:

- Put a ticking clock in the kitten's bed.
- Give the kitten a hot water bottle. Make sure it isn't too hot, and wrap it in a blanket.
- Your kitten may be reluctant to eat, you can encourage it to take food by slightly warming it in the microwave. Make sure before you give the warmed food to the kitten that you give it a stir to ensure there are no hot spots in the food.

Introducing the kitten to other pets:

Let your new kitten settle in before you attempt to introduce it to other pets you have. The introduction needs to be slow and at the animal's pace. Some pets will become firm friends almost immediately, however it is common for resident pets to be upset at the arrival of a new pet for weeks or even months. This is completely normal behaviour and needs to be met with sensitivity and understanding. The worst thing you can do is rush the situation.

Children:

As with introducing pets, introducing your new kitten to children needs to be done slowly and carefully. Let the kitten settle in before you introduce it to children. If your children are young, never leave them unattended with the kitten. Ensure you teach your children how to properly handle a kitten and provide the kitten with a safe place it can retreat to should it need to get away.
Explain to your children that kittens and cats should never be disturbed if they are sleeping or eating.

Parasites:

Your kitten should have been wormed prior to you adopting him/her, a proper worming regime is something which will need to be maintained throughout your cat's life. There are many excellent products on the market to make worming so much easier, these include topical medications which are applied to the back of the cat's neck.

If fleas are a problem in your area then you will also need to ensure you maintain a proper flea regime. Your veterinarian will be able to advise you on parasites and medications for your cat.

Veterinarian:

It is always a good idea to take your kitten your own veterinarian in the first week at home with you for a check up. This will be a great opportunity to have your cat's health properly checked and discuss vaccinations, desexing and feeding.
