How to Kitten Proof your Home

Getting a new kitten is an exciting time. They're just so adorable and fun! Unfortunately they can get into a lot of trouble if you haven't prepared for them. You'll need to kitten proof your home before you bring the new baby home. It's not very hard, but it will require you to get down on the kitten's level and see things from his view.

One of the good rules of thumb to apply here is to think about having a toddler around, only a toddler in miniature size! Kittens are mobile and curious but tiny! This means that you need to consider your home in terms of potential kitty hazards before the kitten gets too old and “into everything”.  

How to do a Weekly Health Check on your Kitty

Do you give your cat a weekly health check up? You should! There are lots of health problems that cats can come down with from fleas to injury. You'll want to know exactly what is going on with  your precious kitty, as soon as something is you can decide if she needs vet care or not. 

Weekly health check on cats

In normal conditions you shouldn’t need to take your kitty to the vet more than once a year, unless of course she gets sick or injured. However, there are steps you can take in order to ensure that your cat is in good health year round and that starts with giving her a health check yourself.

Now obviously you won't be doing a vet level examination, but it's important that you check her over for any changes on a regular basis.
