Kittens! Some things you need to know

Have you recently brought an adorable new kitten into your home? Or are you planning of adopting a one or two cute little kittens any time soon? Well then you will probably be looking around for some help and advice on the best ways to take care of your new and gorgeous family member.

Kittens are generally adopted and weaned from their mother at around the age 6 to 7 weeks. This means that although the kittens no longer need their mother they still do need the love an attention that a mother would give them, so in the first few months you should really spend a lot of time with your kitten, get to know them, let them get to know you and form a strong bond of love that will be the foundation for years to come.

When your kittens are still very young you will need to feed them soft foods. Which you can easily buy pre-packaged as specially made “kitten” food in sachets or tins at your local shop. Also always be sure that your kittens have constant access to clean, fresh water.

And do remember that even with all of the greatest advice in the world on how to care for your little kittens the best and never faltering care is the unconditional love and bond that you and your kitten will come to share.
