I have joked about Flameboy hurting it, but in all honesty he is very sweet with her and is already getting the hang of "NO! Leave her alone!"
She is about 9 weeks old. I cried taking her away from her mum
She is litter trained (or she was at home). Going to phone and register with vet on Monday... how old does she need to be for jabs? What is the best worming stuff to buy? I have flea stuff (she is only just big enough to have it, hence not being done before coming).
Anything else I should know???
Oh, kitten food... is that the cat food version of follow on milk?
Cats do best on a constant supply of food. So its worth getting a tower thing (i will find a pic of what i mean)for a good quality biscuit food (I like james well-beloved, or royal canin.. Avoid the cheap foods (e.g go cat) and iams as what you save in feed costs, you pay for in vet bills..) then offering wet food sachets twice a day
Stronghold is a good flea/wormer, and ask your vet if you can start on either milbermax (a palatable wormer that kitty should eat in food) or the spot on droncit for worming to make life easier (not sure on age for droncit)
Please insure kitten asap especially if the kitten will be going outside, as it will be worth its weight in gold if anything happens. I'd also suggest microchipping the kitten so that if s/he did go walk about, you can be reunited. Try and keep him/her in until 6m when you can get him/her neutered (Some vets will do this at 5m, so ask ) to prevent unwanted pregnancy and other problems (also, neutered boys are far far far less likely to spray and wander and neutered girls tend to be much less skittish and better at snuggling in the family)
My kitten was on the dried Hills Science Plan food for kittens on the vet's recommendation, but she said Royal Canin and James Wellbeloved were good dried foods as well. My latest kitten now aged 18 months was my first for years and I was very anxious too. Oh and be careful loading your washing machine/tumble drier in case of an addition to the load and keep toilet lids down until he is older, as their heads are heavy and if they fall in they can't get out.
