Be sure to “kitten proof” your home

Know what vaccines your kitten needs
From bordetella to rabies, know what and when to give for optimum kitten health.
Teaching your kitten the rules
Kittens are curious and active. If they are scratching furniture, redirect them to their scratching post, and praise them when they make the right choice. If they are playing with something they shouldn't, distract them away with a fun toy.
Get to know your kitten’s unique nutritional needs
Your kitten has very different nutritional requirements than a person, so make sure they have the nutrition they need for a healthy start.
It's always a good idea to spay or neuter your cat
The benefit? Fewer unwanted litters and fewer parental worries for you.
