The Junior Cat
Our kitties grow and learn a lot in their first year. You will want to make sure that you establish predictable but not rigid routines. We do not actually "train" kittens but we do shape behaviors. If you do not pay attention your kitten will train you!
Meal times offer a great opportunity to gain status, influence and knowledge in your relationship. Cats rarely complain when they have a problem - they withdraw. Interaction at meal times allows you to know right away if something is wrong.
Veterinary care at this life stage includes:
- vaccination to prepare your kitten to combat infectious disease
- elimination of internal and external parasites
- screening for Feline Leukemia
- surgical neutering
Early intervention can keep little problems from turning into big problems!
