Finally, the first day of the kitten's arrival!
When a kitten comes to a new environment, it is likely to meow all the time, or it may be in a bad physical condition due to nervousness. To try to avoid this, temporarily feed it the same food as before and do not interfere too much in its life. At the same time, be careful not to tire the kitten out too much.
The first week is a crucial period for the kitten to adapt to its new environment and life. Therefore, it is important to have someone in the house to protect the kitten during this time. However, it is important to start teaching the kitten to go to the toilet on the first day.
Points to note when welcoming a kitten.
♡Meet the kitten several times before welcoming it home. If you get to know the kitten well, it will be less alert.
♡Don't feed the kitten before bringing it home, as it may vomit on the way if it eats a lot.
♡Bring along toys and supplies that the cat likes, so that the cat will feel at ease when it sees the things it is used to.
♡You can talk gently to the cat on the way and tell it not to be afraid.
