My first cat!
well, I have been wanting a new critter and I got one! My landlord asked me if I wanted some kittens, and after thinking about if for a while I decided to get one.
He is a little boy. He is just 5 weeks old. Mostly white, with grey spots here and there. Oh yeah, and he is a short haired cat. I actually know next to nothing about cats so I did research online. I got him a litter box, cat litter, a litter scooper, toys, a baby blanket, and of course water and food bowls. I put him on kitten chow with just a little bit of milk re placer on top. I have had him for three days now and he is doing very well. He plays, purrs, and all the normal kitty stuff. He really likes the dogs. He keeps trying to play with them but the dogs act so funny! Its like the dogs want to play with it, but they do not know how.
Right now i have the kitten confined to the hallway and bathroom when I cannot watch it. It is using the litter box every time! We have not even had one mishap.
now I have a few questions.
Are there any tips to help me raise a kitten with two dogs? How do you keep dogs out of the litter box and food bowl?
How do you train a cat to not jump on top of the counter tops and tables? I know it will be sometime before he can do that, but I do not ever want him to start.
When can I put him on nothing but the dry kitten food?
When do we switch to cat food?
