What you need to know before you buy a kitten
The purring pet in the house is able to give a lot of positive emotions. He will see you off in the morning and meet you after work, laugh and cheer, play with you and sleep sweetly on your knees. However, all this is possible only on the condition that you will give him your care in return.
Before you start a kitten, you should understand for yourself that this requires a certain amount of responsibility. You will need to spend time with him, care for him. So, if in the near future you are planning a trip somewhere, whether in which it is quite diverse, or anything else, wait with the acquisition of a fluffy ball, because at first it will need special care.
In addition, the appearance of a small kitten in the house is accompanied by certain expenses. In addition to food, you will need to buy a toilet tray, a filler (you can without it, but in this case you will need to wash it more often). Take immediately to the growth, so that later not to buy another tray. Feeding trough and drinking bowl are obligatory attributes of each cat. Take care that he always has clean water. As for the feeding regime, the kitten should be fed four to five times a day, an adult cat will need two servings a day.
In order for your sofas, chairs, carpets and tables to be safe and sound, get a scraper. It is necessary to teach the baby to her from the very first days of his appearance with you. All cats sharpen their claws, and it is much better if it makes it from a specially adapted place. A few words should be said about the sleeping place: many newly-born owners of tailed friends are in a hurry with acquiring beds and sleeping houses for their pets. However, they are not mandatory: if the baby does not have his own sleeping bag, he will still be comfortably accommodated in an armchair, sofa, or anywhere else. By the way, in the event that you intend to travel with a cat (for example, at international cat shows), it is necessary to carry it. It will be this or something else – in any case, you need to know in advance whether it is possible to stay in a room with the animal.
Living in private houses, cats often walk on the local area. If this is your case, then immediately buy him a collar against fleas. In addition, not always the windows in the apartments and houses are closed, which means that there is a risk of a cat falling out of the window. It is better to acquire mosquito nets in advance, or at least a collar with a so-called adress address – a key ring, on which your telephone number and animal name are engraved.
