Though your new kitten may not have super powers, most new pet parents will not argue with the hold this charming creature has over its owner and family. However, pet owners can help insure the new kitten has her own super powers by establishing a life-long health plan. All new kittens should see a veterinarian as soon as they join a human family and should continue to receive support for the duration of their lives.

For new kitten parents, this fur baby will require a tremendous amount of energy derived from calorie-dense, feline-designed food sources to grow and thrive. Young kittens should have entrees high in protein and fat, loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and made for growth. The good news for pet owners is this is a pretty easy feat to accomplish. Pet owners can easily supply the unique nutritional needs for kittens by following some basic guidelines.

Kittens Take Litter Training Without Much Stress

By Lambert Vet Supply | 5/26/2017 | Posted to Kitten Care
Most kittens and cats take to using a litter box like a fish adapts to water or a bear to hibernation. This usually happens thanks to mama kitty’s life lessons before your new fur baby arrived at your residence. Ideally, kittens should stay with their mother until about 12 to 14 weeks old to learn all the tricks about being a cat. However, situations like taking in a young, stray or an orphaned baby will force humans into a new role as teacher, chief potty trainer and surrogate cat mother. Regardless the circumstances, kittens can be trained to successfully use a litter box with this skill carrying over long into adult life.
