Preparing to Bring Your Kitten Home
They will need:
●Fresh clean water daily in metal or ceramic bowl. ( Recommended: Provide a circulating water fountain to encourage kitten to drink more water.)
●Lots of toys
●Scratching post with toy attached
●Scoopable cat litter (any brand)
●Medium litter box no lid—scoop litter daily, change entire box monthly
●Steel comb—for combing daily
●Nail clipper—to trim toe nails monthly
●Eyes need to be cleaned daily with a wet warm water on a tissue then wipe dry with clean tissue.
●You will need to be home for at least two to three days to bond with your new kitten, and give it lots of love. You will need to be their mother, brother, and sister.
●Keep kitten in small area for the first few days till they are used to you. Kitten usually will not eat the first day or two from stress.
●Watch for any negative changes as sneezing or not playing, if this happens bring to vet immediately, then call me.
●The first night they may cry a lot or even for the first few days, just pick up and love on them, they miss their old family here.
●The kitten doesn’t know you so they don't hate or dislike you. They are just afraid of their new home, so give them time to adjust.
●I give a 7 day health guarantee so please make a vet appointment for routine checkup.
The kittens are used to the food we have been feeding them. The stress of moving and any change in their diet may affect their sensitive stomachs and could produce loose stools.
For kittens 12 weeks old and up: add to 1 can of Purina One Healthy Kitten wet food per kitten per day:
● add ¼ tsp of the Solid Gold SealMeal
● add ¼ tsp of the Lysine
● add a little water to mixture,
● add 1 teaspoon of canned pumpkin,
● feed ½ of can in the morning and ½ of can in the evening.
Leave Purina One Healthy Kitten Formula Dry Cat Food out all day, freshen food during the day as needed. Please use glass, ceramic, or metal bowls.
For kittens 6 - 12 months and older:
Start slowly switching from the Purina kitten dry food and can food, to Purina One Adult Dry or can food, or to Life’s Abundance All Stages Dry and can food. I recommend both. The process should take a month, so do it gradually.
●Kitten will go home with their first 3-way vaccine, appropriate for the age of the kitten. They will only need one more 3-way vaccine from your vet, within a month of their first vaccine that they had received here in South Boston, Virginia, while in our care. Persians and Himalayans are very sensitive, so vaccines should be spaced out. I recommend waiting for the rabies vaccine until the kitten is close to a year old.
