Congrats on your new kitten! As your new friend is jumping, nuzzling, and purring all over your house, you're probably wondering the best way to offer kitten care. In fact, taking care of kittens can actually be pretty stress free.
First, you'll want to pick the perfect name, whether it's Chloe, Fluffy, Meaty or Mini. Keep in mind that kittens tend to respond to names ending with "ie" or "y."
Your next step in kitten care is setting up a clean box full of fresh litter. Remove soiled litter immediately and change the entire box once a week so it never gets too icky.
Next, you'll want to set up a cat bed or blanket so your kitten will feel right at home. Don't be surprised, though if your newborn kitten jumps right into bed with you for some extra nuzzles. Hey, your kitten just wants to be close to you!
Newborn kitten care also involves taking a trip to vet for vaccinations. After the poking and prodding, your vet may want to talk to you about a balanced diet to keep your kitten healthy for years to come. Don't stress – your kitten can also get vitamins and more through TEMPTATIONS™ treats that taste yummy.
Kitten care doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, taking care of kittens should be fun and adventurous - just like your new cat. Just make your kitten feel at home and before you know it, he or she will be a part of your happy little family.
