Kitten upbringing should be practiced from a very early age and throughout life. Let’s look at the highlights of this challenging process.
It is important to understand that short-term memory is very poorly developed in cats, and if you try to punish a kitten 10-20 minutes ago, it will be ineffective and only traumatizes its psyche. For competent education it is necessary not to punish the kitten after breaking any rules, but try to correct its behavior at the time of the “crime”. To do this, it is enough to speak with the kitten in a strict tone, because cats very well perceive the intonations of human speech.
Law is law
Strictly follow the rules you have identified. It is very important that the “laws” of behavior established for a kitten be controlled by all family members. If you give up the slack and at least once violate the ban, the kitten will forever remember that the rules can be circumvented.
Even during the game, never let us show aggression towards ourselves and the rest of the family. If the kitten has played in earnest and turned his teeth and claws, immediately stop the game and read it off.
Decide on the diet and try to strictly adhere to it. Food should be high-calorie, balanced in mineral composition, rich in vitamins and with a high level of protein. Remember that a kitten should not receive food from the table – this will negatively affect its eating behavior.
In order for your kitten to get everything you need with food and learn to eat properly, you should combine dry and wet food in his diet. Such feeding suggests that at certain times of the day the kitten gets wet food, and the dry one is in the bowl in free access for the entire remaining time – so the pet has the opportunity to eat when it wants.
For a balanced diet and to maintain a healthy growth and development of the pet, PRO PLAN® Junior dry food and PRO PLAN® Junior NUTRISAVOUR wet food are excellent. The high content of special omega-3 fatty acids in these feeds contributes to the healthy development of the central nervous system and the maintenance of your pet’s cognitive functions.
Schooling to the tray
Pets purchased from a bona fide breeder are usually accustomed to the tray. If your kitten did not have time to inculcate this skill, do not worry – it will not be difficult. Remember that kittens usually go to the toilet immediately after eating. After the next feeding, just take the pet in your arms and transfer it to the tray. You will see – he will not be long in coming. Repeat these manipulations again and again until the kitten gets used and starts walking into the tray on its own.
