What to do with a new kitten

When you have chosen a new cat it is best to keep it in a closed off area of the house so it can become comfortable in it’s environment. Encourage it to use a litter tray and keep the tray nice and clean.

Try not to over-feed the kitten in the first few days and keep on bland food. Kittens often get diarrhoea when they come to to new home.

Within the first few days book an appointment for a free kitten check so one of our veterinarians can make sure your new pet is healthy and go through the best ways to keep your kitten healthy. There will be vaccinations to keep up to date and parasite control to be discussed.

For advice on preventative health also see our Pittwater Kitten Check List.
