Have you got a little kitten? It is in your power to make it easier for the baby to be separated from the mother cat and help him get used to the new home faster.
Start by letting your new family member look around. If there are children in the family, explain to them that at first the baby should not be disturbed, let him get used to it a little, because for him moving to a new home is a real stress.
After the kitten looks around a little, show him the place where the feeding will take place. The best option is if you ask the owners of the cat in advance how they fed the babies and offer him the same food. This will help to adapt faster, and also will not cause the baby's stomach upset due to the abrupt change of food. There must be a bowl of fresh water next to the plate of food. It is best to give the kitten filtered water, as raw tap water contains a lot of harmful chlorine.
In the first days, the kitten can show anxiety, "cry", look for a mother-cat. More often take him in your arms, stroke him, talk to the baby in an affectionate voice. To make the kitten sleep better at night, you can first put a cloth soaked in the smells of the mother's nest in his house. To do this, ask the owners of the cat in advance to hold the cloth where the mother-cat lived with the children. Feeling the native smell, your kitten will calm down faster.
In advance, stock up on all the necessary equipment for caring for a kitten. Special food for babies up to one year old, bowls for food and water, toilet tray, filler, comb for long hair. Ask the cat owner in advance what kind of litter they use. By purchasing the same one, you will make it easier for yourself the process of accustoming your baby to his own toilet.
If there are other animals in your house, make sure that the "elders" do not frighten or offend the little one. Even if at first your animals did not find a common language, do not be discouraged. With the help of patience, affection and equal attention, your pets will definitely make friends!
