ADVICE

Feeding

Kittens grow very quickly, so they have a high demand for energy. Most kittens will require 3-4 meals a day. Commercial kitten diets are generally well balanced – there are wet (tinned meat) and dry (biscuit) kitten foods available. Your vet will be happy to discuss your kitten’s nutrition with you.

 

Socialisation and Handling

Young kittens are very impressionable. Frequent handling - picking up, stroking, cuddles, etc, from all members of the family in many cases will help the kitten to mature into an easy to handle and relaxed adult cat (there are some exceptions!). It is important to get your kitten used to domestic noises (TV, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, etc).

 

Insurance

There are many policies available from different insurance companies. Some of these policies are considerably better than others. We cannot recommend insurance companies but we do advise you research well before making a choice and insure you have taken out a lifetime policy if possible however, this is up to you as the owner to decide.
