Proper Kitten Care
Kittens are hands down the most adorable animals out there, and that’s why they are one of the most common pets too. A fact about kittens is that they don’t like change in their lives, so many people find it challenging to move with them to a new place. The same thing happens when they bring a new kitten into their home.
But all the kitten parents that are new or the ones who have been doing it for some time, want them to be happy and take the best possible care of them. So, we at HSSLC, a no-kill animal shelter and on the mission to provide extreme care to the animals are about to give you the best tips to integrate a kitten into a new home and give them the best care.
How to properly integrate a kitten into a new home and how to provide them with the best care?
Before we get into the details, always remember that the first few days will be tough for a kitten to move to a new home no matter what you do. But with your love and compassion, things will start to change in no time, and you will feel the emergence of a new friendship between you and your little pet friend.
Provide Your Kitten a Safe Space
The first rule of treating your pets with kindness, whether they’re kittens or dogs, is thinking of them like your kid. So, when you bring a kid into a home, you have to provide them with space of their own. It can be a room or even a spot in the house that no one can invade except for them. We want a separate room when we move into a new house, so it’s only fair to provide our pets with their own space.
Give Them Proper Attention and Time
When you’re bringing a new kitten into your home, you may have gotten them from a friend or from a shelter like HSSLC Humane Society of St. Lucie County. So, be very careful about everything you expose them to and give them proper attention and time. You can play whenever you’re free in the day, and you can set your schedule according to that. If you are extremely busy at work, you should not have a pet in the first place because you will be unable to spend time with it.
Gift Your Kitten New Toys and Treats
We all love gifts and presents, so our pets are going to appreciate them too. Please give your kitten toys and treats whenever your kitten learns something new or listens to you. But never forget that the best gift that you can provide your kitten is your unconditional love and care.
Take Care of their Nutrition
Most people, when it comes to the nutritional requirement of their pets, are quite irresponsible. So, don’t be like them and take proper care of their diet, including your kitten’s supplements and vitamins.
Don’t Limit Your Kitten to a Spot
The last step is an essential thing that you have to take care of, limiting your kitten to a spot. You indeed have to provide space of their own but still consider that pets like to roam around, especially kittens, even though they are famous for their laziness. Remember the whole point: you want your kitten to get used to the new place so let them explore and find out the spots where to hide and surprise you and just be themselves.
