4 Things You Learn When You Adopt a Kitten
June 1, 2018

Will a baby feline be joining your household soon? Congratulations! You’re definitely in for some cute moments over the next few months. Little Fluffy has a lot to learn, and watching her figure out the rules of being a cat is bound to be both hilarious and adorable. However, your tiny ball of fur may also have some lessons in store for you. Here, a local Norwalk, CA vet lists some things you learn when you adopt a kitten.

Those Little Claws Are Sharp

Little Fluffy will be very interested in figuring out how all those claws and teeth work, and may very well try to practice on you. Ouch! Nip bad petiquette in the bud by blowing in your kitten’s face when she does this. You can also tell her ‘No’ in a firm tone of voice. Then, walk away and ignore her for a while.

Kittens Can Fit Into Really Small Spaces

Cats grow quite fast, but while your little furball is in her toddler stage, she’ll be able to get into some really small spots. This, coupled with little Fluffy’s natural sense of adventure and desire to investigate every nook and cranny in her new domain, can make an ordinary household very dangerous for her. Close off small spaces, such as the openings behind and beneath furniture and cabinets. We also recommend looking under blankets and checking recliners and sofas before sitting down. Keep large appliances closed when not in use.

Everything Is A Toy

Kittens are super frisky, and will play with, well, pretty much anything. Make your home safe for your frolicsome pet by removing or securing potentially dangerous items, such as toxic plants, small or sharp objects, chemicals, medication, wires and cords, and plastic bags and wrappers. Ask your vet for more information.

Baby Cats Are Impossibly Cute

You wouldn’t think that these tiny balls of fur can take up such huge spaces in our lives, but kittens have a special way of melting our hearts. Your pet will have you wrapped around those tiny little paws in no time with her adorable face, hilarious antics, and happy purrs. Pay lots of attention to little Fluffy! Make sure she feels loved, safe, and maybe just a little bit spoiled.
