You will need
- - dry terry towel,
- - disinfectants,
- - bowls for eating,
- - Scratch.
Decide on the type of food: Either ready-made food, or ordinary food. Among the ready forages are liquid and dry. Carefully study the composition, for what age is intended, the dosage and the frequency of feeding. Some veterinarians advise to feed the kitten with baby food. Digestion of cats is extremely sensitive. Remember that if in the future you plan to sterilize the animal, you still have to switch to special ready-made feed.
Watch for the cleanliness of the bowls with food. The food should be fresh, at room temperature. Separately supply drinking water. Teach the kitten to eat by the clock, at least 4-5 times a day. Subsequently, the animal itself learn to control the amount of food intake and determine its own degree of saturation.
Find a place for the tray where the kitten will beGoing to the toilet. In the first 1.5-2 weeks, watch the animal. Indicate the place for the kitten's toilet. If he did not go there, wet the cotton pad, put it in the tray, put the kitten in the tray. And so every time until the habit is established. Place where the pet went to the toilet, thoroughly disinfect, but do not use too sharp smells, otherwise the animal will continue exactly where it should not be done.
Buy a special scribe. Set in the place where the animal most often tries to sharpen the claws. You can use special tools in the form of sprays, weaning to sharpen claws in the wrong places. Regularly prune the animal claws: on your own or in the clinic.
Remove street shoes, because some animals because of its specific smell, can mark it as their territory, or simply spoil the appearance.
