When it comes to your kitten’s growth, nutrition is key. To maintain a balanced diet, a kitten must be fed both commercial cat foods of high quality and natural food. Always make sure your kitten has access to fresh water at all times. Avoid giving them cow’s milk.
It is important to provide your kitten with a comfortable, dry bed. Even if you prefer that your cat share your bed, it’s still very important for you to give the kitten its own bed. Beddings should be safe, easy to clean and dry. Also ensure the bed is placed in a cozy and private place.
Playtime with your kitten is important because it builds a relationship between you and your kitten. We all know that kittens love to play with toys and interact with their owners. Try out different toys to keep your kitten from getting bored.
Regular grooming of medium and long haired cat is essential to keep them neat. Grooming your cat is a great activity to begin at a young age. It will become a fun and bonding experience. You should always reward your cat verbally and with sweet cat treats each time you allow it to be groomed.
The kitten will learn to associate the grooming experience with positive rewards. This will make the whole process enjoyable for both you and your kitten. Grooming will remove loose hair, dust and grass seeds. It can also remove tangles and dead skin. This will cause your cat to have “fur balls”. Fur balls are caused by cats self-grooming and swallowing fur.
Your cat should enjoy grooming. The best way to do this is by not pulling hair or jerking your cat. You should know that cats dislike being bathed because it is stressful.
It’s a natural thing for cats to scratch, as it is their behavior. Scratching also helps to keep their nails healthy. You should provide your cat with several scratching posts throughout the house. This will stop your cat from damaging your home with scratches.
Furniture is a good example. If you don’t have a scratching board, your kitten will scratch your couch, which can cause damage. You will need to protect your furniture before the kittens reach the age where they realize that certain places are scratching posts. This is to avoid any possible damage caused by the cats as they scratch everything in your home.

behavioral and health benefits, such as reducing the urge to wander and mark urine.
