Sometimes i am seen with my cat named Tiger and a couple times i give her her own little free time to go do her thing, you know we all have to get a little groove on right? Anyway, when she mates and produces her kittens, when they are strong and healthy after sucking milk from their mothers titties. Sometimes i would place them in my safe kitten carry pouch and just take them for a little fresh air. People would see them and be like "Om my Gosh, they are soooo cute, where do you get kittens?" I ask myself sometimes, Is that a real question, should i answer or just pretend smile and move along? mmmmm choices, choices! For the people who don't know where they can get kittens; here are the location of the hidden kitten mystery.
kitten Rescue And Adaption
Thousand of kittens are rescued yearly. These kittens are either left unattended by their owners, the mom has died or the animals were to be put to sleep (Euthanasia). There are great organizations that have gone and collected these poor kittens and have paid some huge vet bills to patch and fix up those sick and broken cats. You can help out these kind organizations by visiting and acquiring a kitten from them.
Visit a Pet Shop
For those people who prefer not to choose a broken cat and nourish that animal and fill its little heart with care and love, you can simply go to the pet store and buy a kitten. The advantages of buying a kitten than adapting a rescued kitten is that you are sure to have the kittens medical records available and at that very moment the kitten is in good physical health.
If you are looking for a particular breed of kitten(s) to buy. My favorite is the Maine Coon Kittens. Main Coons are the largest domesticated cat breeds. Once you see a coon cat you will know it different than any other breed because of its distinctive physical appearance. The Coon Cat is a very good hunter and will be sure to catch any mice and lizards in your home or yard. Of course you will find Maine coon kittens for sale at a variety of pet stores, but if you are lucky and blessed you can ask around and see if you can get one of these sweet kittens for free.
Kittens Dietary Needs
Kittens have a high need for meals rich in amino acids, a few vitamins, minerals and of course protein. They will of course need meals with fat and a little fatty acid. Kittens will eventually become cats and cats gets most of their energy from protein, so a few sardines and tuna in your kittens plate will make him believe that he is in cat heaven.
Where will my kitten sleep
Your kitten will need to be kept warm, if the kitten was with mom. He would have snuggled in quite cozily beside her. So you will need to either have that kitten snuggle under the sheets with you or go out and acquire a cat bed to allow your kitten to sleep warm and comfortable. If you don't want the kitten in bed with you and you cant afford a cat bed right now, you can make a temporary cat bed out of a cardboard box and an old blanket. Here are the steps:
If you think you love your bed, think again. Kittens are real zzzzers! Kittens will sleep anywhere between 15 to 18 hours a day. So when they feed they may just simply go sleep, this is also what helps them to bulk up.
Now that you have finally found your hearts desire, the next step is simply providing the best care for your little kitten.
What Do Kittens Eat?
During the first 4 weeks, the kittens must only feed on their mothers milk. If the mother is not around, you must find cat milk substitute, make sure to consult a vet regarding this. After the 4 weeks have passed, it is now OK for you to give the kitten delicious kitten food. By then the kitten should be fully weaned from the mothers nipples or cat milk substitute.
Kittens high Energy Needs
Don't be alarmed if you notice that your kitten weight as actually doubled or near triple during the first few weeks. That is a natural transition of a healthy kitten. This explosive weight gain is simply to support the kittens fast growth and its high agility levels. What this means is that the kitten will demand more food and of course will need to be fed more often. You may have to feed the kitten at least 4 times per day. Please do not pour out a two pound bag of feed in the poor kittens dish, but feed sparingly.
Play Time With Kitty
Don't be too alarm if you see you kitten jumping and skidding and pawing and even scratching. Kittens will definitely play rough as this is what they do naturally and instinctively. They are actually small predators and when they play it is actually a predatory instinct that is being used. After time they will adjust to a more homely stance, but once a predator, always a predator. It would be good if you also acquire a scratch pad or post for the kitten and teach him to scratch there as no matter what, it is just in built in module in cats that programs them to scratch.
Ensure that you bring your kitten to the vet for the proper vaccinations. You wouldn't want to risk your kitten developing any serious health issues such as Infectious Enteritis (Panleucopenia), Leukaemia and ‘Cat Flu’ (Infectious Respiratory Disease). Remember that at this young age, kittens defenses are not that strong and the best option is to ensure that the kitten will not catch these illnesses.
Worms and Fleas
Just like a adult cat, the kitten is susceptible to catching worms and fleas. Consult your vet on when and how to de worm your kitten. It is important that at any point if you choose to apply oral medicine. if you are not sure how to do this consult your vet. Best ways to get rid of kitten fleas.
Show Your Kittens Some Love and Attention
One of the most important part in kitten care is to spend time with your kitten and show some love and attention. This will help to foster trust and you kitten will grow physically, mentally and emotionally strong.
