Learn About Your New Kitten

A new kitten can be a magical time for the whole family, but a pet is a big commitment that requires a lot of time, effort and love. The good news is you'll be repaid tenfold with a lifelong loving companion.

With this in mind, there's a lot to think about when you welcome a new kitten into your home. For starters, there's making sure you choose the best type of breed for your family. Then there's safety - checking that your house is safe for your kitten is an important first step.

Stepping into a new family can be a stressful situation for your kitten as well. New faces, new animals, and sometimes a new climate can take its toll. That's why it's important you consider the gradual introduction of your kitten to each of the elements of its new home.

Tips for bringing a new kitten home and settling them as quickly as possible.
Here are a few pointers on welcoming your new family member:
  • Bring your kitten home at the start of a weekend. This means you’ll be able to spend more time with your pet and she/ he can meet everybody.
  • Ask your breeder not to feed your kitten before you pick her/ him up. This will prevent kittens feeling car sick on the way to their new home.
  • Give your pet her/ his first meal after she/ he is settled into her new home. This way, kittens will learn to depend on you.
  • For the first few days, leave your kitten in a quiet place and slowly introduce her/ him to the other rooms in your house.
  • Introduce your kitten to as many people as possible. This helps kittens lessen their fear of strangers.
  • Choose a name for your kitten and start using it often. Always call her/ him by name when you feed her/ him so she/ he becomes familiar with it.
Learning as much as possible about your new kitten is the best first step to a long and rewarding relationship.
