Bringing Kitty Home
Welcoming Your New Cat to the Family
If you have small children and bring home a kitten, introduce the kids one at a time as not to overwhelm the kitten. Monitor them when holding the kitten– kids can be unintentionally rough and you don’t want to scare or hurt the kitten. It’s also important to remember that if you have other pets in your home, you’ll need to make sure they’ve been checked out by the vet and are disease free before bringing your cat home. Don’t leave your new cat alone with other pets without supervision until you know they are comfortable with each other.
