When you welcome your new kitten home, you will have to “catify” all the surfaces and rooms.
This means removing anything that is potentially dangerous, such as loose wires or small objects that could be choking hazards. Create soft, comfortable beds and cocoons with soft blankets and mats that are easy to access. Take a cat toilet, a good quality natural bentonite litter with high absorbency and fresh scent, such as the Le Chef Cat Litter and two small plates for food and water.
You will need many fun games for your new kitten as he learns how to hunt and play. Try placing the toys in a low cut decorative basket so that the kitten has access to the interior.
No matter what age your new cat is, exclude detection rooms such as under beds and sofas where it can be hidden. A cat in a new environment may want to hide, so give her a place to do that – like a covered bed – but make sure she is in a safe place.
Your cat, regardless of age, has a natural instinct to play out and practice her hunting instincts. When they are out, cats are exposed to more illnesses and parasites and are at risk of being lost, stolen or hit by a car. Make sure you have all the vaccines on your cat and that you have enclosed your balcony so that it can not escape.
If you live in a garden house, you should check your garden for potential dangers, make sure the garden is not sprayed with herbicides and there are no other dangerous places to hide.
