Before you think about bringing a kitten into your home, think carefully about possible hazards you may have. These may include electrical wires, sharpe utensils, needles, plastic bags, detergents and poisonous plants. A small kitten can find there way into many surprising places, so be careful to keep dangerous objects out of range.
Also keep in mind that many common used carb toys such as yarn, string, rubber bands, aluminium foil and cellophane can be dangerous if they are accidentally swallowed. Your kitten should play with such objects only with your supervision.

Beds and Bedding
The most important thing you can do to make your new kitten feel at home is to have a corner already furnished with a basket and cushion.
Cats beds come in many varieties, from elaborate cat beds to home-made wooden boxes. The size of your cat's bed should be in proportion to there adult size. Bear in mind, though, that cat's prefer to sleep curled up rather than stretched out in a large space.
For your kittens first bed, a corrugated cardboard box with sides about twelve inches high will suffice. The high sides will help them feel more secure and will also help to keep out draughts. Cut out a doorway in the front and line the box with a pillow or cushion covered in washable fabric. Place the bed in a warm, quiet corner of your home.
Don't be disappointed however if your kitten doesn't prefer your chosen sleeping place. It may take a bit of experimentation to arrive at sleeping quarters that both you and your kitten agree on!
Cats baskets/carriers
A cat carrier is essential, even if you plan to travel no further with your kitten than the veterinary surgery. Look for one that will be roomy, well ventilated, escape proof and easy to clean. Avoid baskets or cages that have sharpe, exposed edges that could snag your kittens collar and choke them.
Food and Water Bowl
You'll need two bowls one for water and one for food. Fresh water should be available to your kitten at all times and the dishes should be washed after every meal.
Litter Tray
A litter tray, cat litter and scoope are essential. Even if your kitten has access to an outdoor area, they should not be let out until they have adjusted to there new home (this also applies when moving home)
The litter tray should always be accessible and easy to find. Choose a box that is deep enough to keep your kitten from scattering litter when they dig. IT's best to use about two inches of litter in the bottom of the tray.
Commercial litter docent have to be changed every day; just use the scoop to remove the wet patches and faeces and replace them with fresh litter. You should, however wash the litter tray once a week with hot water. Be carful; some disinfectants can be toxic, and your kitten may repelled by their scent.
Although shredded newspaper may appear to be a cost effective alternative to commercial cat litter, it absorbs soil and odour less effectively and is harder to clean up. Moreover, it can encourage your kitten to use newspaper not intended for the purpose!
Pregnant women need to be aware of toxoplasmoisis, a disease carried by cats that can cause birth defects. Toxoplasmosis is a diseases that affects people as well as pets. But the cat is the only animal known to expel the parasite in its faeces. If pregnant you should use gloves while handling the litter tray and wash your hands throughly afterwards. Your kitten can be kept free of infection by feeding them only commercial food and keeping them indoors.
Brushes and Combs
Grooming should be a regular part of your cats routine. Although your kitten will probably want to make a game of it and try to bite the brush and comb this is essential part of there care; especially in the summer months when fleas are prevalent.
Scratching Posts
A scratching post will give your kitten a place to stretch and exercise as well as keeping there claws in good condition. It will also help to prevent them from using your furniture to satisfy there needs!
First days
The first days of your kittens life in there new home are important in building a happy relationship between your kitten and there adopted 'family'. For that reason, its best not to introduce your kitten to your household during particularly busy times (i.e. during building work). A new kitten needs a quiet environment and lots of care from there new owners.
Arrival Of Your New Kitten
When you bring your new kitten into your home for the first time, there probably be a little apprehensive.If they seem phased it is best to keep then in one room until they grown accustomed to it, before opening the door to allow them to roam through the rest of your home. Give your kitten plenty of attention and be prepared to spend time playing with them while they become acquainted with her new home.
A new kitten needs time to settle into there new surroundings. During there first weeks in there new home, they should be allowed some quiet time to explore each room throughly. Only after they have grown accustomed to there indoor environment and has adjusted to a regular feeding schedule should you consider allowing then to venture outdoors. If you acquire a kitten during the winter, you should wait for warmer weather before allowing then outside.
Weather or not your kitten should be permitted access to the outdoors is an individual decision. Although they will have more opportunity for exercise, they will almost certainly be exposed to more dangers, such as traffic and dogs. Whatever your choice, you should decide early on; once a cat has been given outdoor freedom, they will not easily be confined after.
How to pick up your cat
Pick up your cat by placing one hand under there chest behind the front legs. Place the other hand under there high quarters to support there weight and lift the cat into the crook of your arm.
Getting along with other pets
If you have other pets, you should take special care in introducing then to your new kitten. If the two pets meet accidentally, they could become life long enemies. It is probably best to confine your other pet while your kitten explores there new surroundings. Once they learned to find there way round the house, the best time for them to meet an existing pet is at mealtime. Each animal should be given its own dish, well spart from each other. It is likely that your older pet will not even notice the newcomer until after they have finished feeding, and the encounter is likely to be more relaxed all round.
The younger the existing pet, the better will be chance of peaceful co-existence. You should be prepared to break up a fight, however if one develops. If your resident pet is an adult dog, you should probably keep them on a lead or confine the kitten in a cage. A dog can seriously injure a small kitten.
If you have birds or fish, the situation will be the reverse, and a appropriate precaution should be taken to protect them from harm.
Feeding your kitten
A kittens nutrition requirements are more demanding than those of an adult cat. A high quality meat protein food will provide the proteins and other nutrients that are essential during this important growth stage.
Feed your kitten half there recommended daily portion in the morning and half in the evening. Remember that the amount may vary according to age, temperament and activity level of your kitten.
Feeding tips
When feeding your kitten, you should keep these factors in mind:
Respect your kitten privacy. Don't disturb them while there eating.
Food and water bowls should be placed in a quiet, out-of-the-way place.
Be sure your kitten has fresh water at all times, especially during warmer weather. Frequent drinking help your kitten keep her system healthy and may help reduce the risk of feline lower urinary tract disease.
Place your kittens water dish at least six feet away from her food. That way they won't learn to associate water only with eating.
Use a bowl that your kitten cannot tip over easily. Clean there food dishes at each meal and water dishes daily.
As general rule, follow the feeding instructions that come on your pet food.
Be flexible. Feeding instructions are only guidelines. Cats generally regulate their eating habits according to their needs. The amount of food your kitten needs will vary with age, weight, breed, temperament, environment and activity level.
If you use a dry food you can leave a recommended daily quantity in your kittens dish and let them choose there own meal times.

Although some owners choose to supplement commercial cat foods with milk, this should never be necessary if the commercial food is nutritionally balanced and complete. Moreover, most cats cannot properly digest the lactose in milk and may develop flatulence or diarrhoea.
Play and Exercise
Kittens seem to live to play. Actually, each day is an important adventure which helps the kitten in there development of intelligence, dexterity, and there relationships with humans and other animals. The mother cat generally provides the stimulation for kittens development . But you and your family can have a great effect on the temperament and emotional development of your kitten.
Play and exercise are important for your kitten's development. Buy them toys a ball, rubber mouse, or anything they can play with and not be injured. There hunting instincts will develop; there reflexes will become sharp.
Kittens and your cats, when treated correctly, grow up to be happier, more curious and sure of themselves.
Kittens and Children
A cat can make many contributions to a child's personal growth. They can help to install a sense of nurturing and personal responsibility in children. Yet parents should not use a pet merely as a tool to teach children responsibility. Children may gradually assume more role in caring for your kitten, but they should always do so under supervision.
Young children can often hurt a small animal because they fail to realise what can cause pain to them. It will not occur to a small child that picking up a kitten by one of it's legs, or pulling it's tail or making loud noises around them can actually hurt the animal. You should explain such things to them well before the kitten arrives into your home. But, particularly with very young children, supervision is essential at all times.
Health Care
Although cats are generally more resistant to illness than many other pets, they are constantly exposed to many health hazards, both from disease and from physical hazards in their environment.
As a cat owner, you can help to ensure a long and healthy life for your pet by keeping her on a regular schedule of preventative medical care and by keeping a sharp eye out for dangers that she may encounter.
Eyes and Ears
From time to time, your cat's eyes may have tears, or you may notice some dried discharge in the corner of her eyes. This is not usually cause for alarm; the tears or discharge may be wiped away with a tissue dampened with warm water. If the tearing or discharge seem excessive, yellowish or mucus-like, you should check with your veterinarian.
You should check your cat's ears regularly. Clean dirty ears carefully with cotton wool dipped in water. If you notice that your kitten is constantly shaking her head or scratching her ears, the problem may be ear mites. If diagnosed promptly, ear mites can usually be eliminated with drops. Ask your veterinarian.
Teeth should be examined regular for tartar and inflamed gums. feeding a dry food can prevent some dental problems. If your kittens has bad breath, salivates excessively or has difficulty eating, they may have a dental problem. Again, consult your veterinarian.
Symptoms of Illness
If you spend time with your kitten every day, you will quickly get to know there normal personality, behaviour and feeding routine. Change in these usually indicate that something may be wrong with them.
Any following may be symptoms of illness:
  • Excessive thirst
  • Sudden weight loss or gain
  • Changes in colour or condition of skin
  • Diarrhoea
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Difficulty in urination or blood in urine
  • Dull or patchy coat
  • Fever
  • Lack or loss of appetite
  • Sluggishness or odd behaviour
  •  Red or watery eyes, nasal discharge
  • Vomiting
Spaying and Neutering
One decision every cat owner must faces weather to spay or neuter. Unless you plan to breed your cat professionally, you and your cat will probably be happier together if he or she is neutered or spayed. Weather male or female, the operation is safe.
Travelling with your kitten
Accustom your kitten to travel when they are young, even if you do not expect to travel with them often in the future. Even the occasional trips to the vet will be more pleasant if your kitten has been exposed to routine of travailing with you .
Weather you use your car to take public transport, a cat carrier is essential piece of equipment. Introduce it to your kitten at early age and let them become accustomed to going in and out of it. If the cat complains about being in the carrier talk to them in a calming voice but do not let them out under any circumstances.
Avoid leaving your kitten in the car, even for short while. In the summer, temperatures inside a parked car can rise to fatal extremes in only minutes. If you must leave the kitten in your car in hot weather, park in the shade and roll the windows down. Merely opening them a little won't provide adequate ventilation.
