Have you recently adopted a kitten? Or, more to the point, has a kitten adopted you? Congratulations! You’re certainly in for some adorable moments with your new pet. You may also be in for some new realizations! In this article, a Scottsdale, AZ vet lists some things you will discover when you adopt a kitten.
Everything Is A Toy
You’ll want to get plenty of toys for your kitten to play with. However, don’t be surprised if little Fluffy also likes to bat at your shoelaces, attack rubber bands, or pounce on crumpled up pieces of paper. As far as your furry friend is concerned, everything is a cat toy! Keep your pet safe by removing anything that could be dangerous, such as small and sharp objects, wires and cords, toxic items, and plastic wrappers and bags.
Those Little Claws Are Sharp!
As we all know, kittens are super playful. It’s almost impossible not to smile when seeing a baby cat playing with a fuzzy toy or pouncing on a little ball. Your tiny furball will be very interested in figuring out how all her claws and teeth work, and may try to use you for practice. Ouch! Nip that habit in the bud by telling little Fluffy to play nice, and ignoring her when she doesn’t.
Kittens Explore Everything
Little Fluffy is extremely curious, and will investigate every nook and cranny of her new domain. This can be quite dangerous, because tiny felines can fit into some pretty small spaces! Seal off openings behind and beneath furniture and counters. You’ll also want to check under armchairs and blankets before sitting down, just to be safe.
Baby Cats Are Almost Impossibly Cute
Little Fluffy will waste no time in wrapping you around her little paws! It often only takes just one look into a tiny furry face for us to be completely and utterly charmed. You may find yourself staying in place when your feline pal is on your lap, just so you don’t disturb her. And that look of adoration your kitten gets when you pet her? That look, combined with a purr, can melt hearts in no time at all. Please contact us, your Scottsdale AZ pet clinic, for your kitten’s veterinary care needs. And don’t forget, we are an award winning Scottsdale cat boarding facility as well! We love helping kitties grow from tiny, adorable furballs to happy, healthy adults!
