in your home came a little teddy British kitten. That
he was able to quickly settle into his new home, we'll
give you some tips on how to best take care of your
new little friend. Remember - the kitten is the same
child! Even yesterday, he took care of him affectionate
mother, he played and had fun with my brothers and
sisters the same as he was British kittens. And suddenly
he finds himself in a completely different house,
where everything is so unfamiliar to him, not around
his mother, not his brothers and sisters, he had no
one to play and he was scared. It is these early days
of separation, the most difficult for a small creature.
It is therefore essential to give a little "britanchiku"
as much time as it is in those very early days of
separation from his mother and brothers. What you
need to do? We will try in order to answer these questions.
Before a small teddy Briton will appear in your home,
you need to prepare thoroughly. Here is a basic list
of necessary accessories for a kitten:
Cat's house or bed
Toys for kittens and
Litter box and a filler
Bowls for food and water
Brush and comb
Scratching or kogtedralka
Special food for kittens
CAT HOUSES OR BEDS
of all, the kitten should be his living space to a
small house, a refuge, a game room. Buy him a cat
house, preferably with multiple levels, with shelves
and bars for turning claws. Kittens are very mobile,
it is like to climb on the shelves house, or shelter
for undisturbed sleep in his house. Of course he will
be chasing around the house or apartment, but her
cabin has its own bath.
TOYS FOR KITTENS AND HOMESICKNESS
the kitten should be a lot of toys, this is different
balls, fur mice, teasers. If the hand did not, you
can even crumple a sheet of paper or a piece of foil
into a ball and give it to a kitten, you will see
the joy it brings to him, they love to wear them in
his mouth and chase it across the floor. Toys can
entertain a kitten at a time when no one is. Do not
buy toys that can be dangerous for a kitten. For example
with different rubber bands, ropes, he can bite off
and swallow. At first, the baby can grieve and cry,
try these days to pay more attention to the kitten,
play with him more often, talk. If the cat meows and
cries at night, take him up, talk to him, cuddle.
You can put next to a warm water bottle wrapped in
a towel, it will create an impression of the presence
of a number of mom and brother to the sisters. You
can put a ticking clock close - close imitation of
the mother's heart beating. While the baby is accustomed
to a new home, limit his space travel one room in
which to stand and a toilet bowl with food and water.
In a strange place it will be difficult to find their
way to the toilet or to eat. After a small British
settled into a room and get used to the toilet, you
can give him the space to explore the rest of the
apartment or house.
SAFETY OF BRITISH KITTEN
should also take care of the baby's safety. You want
to limit access to remote places, where the kitten
can hide, such as a cupboard or refrigerator. Simply
put, close all the gaps, where he will be able to
climb and get stuck there, until the British are not
yet old enough and just can not squeeze through there
because of their size. Do not leave unattended plastic
bags, kittens love to play with them, but they can
accidentally choke in it. Do not throw balls of yarn,
ropes, cords, Christmas tree rain and other long objects.
Young kittens and adults cats are very fond of the
British feast on them, and if you notice a good time
and have time to pull out from the other cat-meter
rope, otherwise no veterinary care is necessary. When
a cat or a cat is older and able to jump to a height,
you need to take care of the windows, which should
be the grid to the cat does not imagine himself a
hang gliding and went to the flight of a bird flying
by or a butterfly. This is especially true of the
upper floors. Also, the owners of the cooking surfaces
in the kitchen to think that the grown up cat jumped
out of stupidity, not on a hot surface. While the
kitten will not be vaccinated, after coming home before
taking the kitten, wash your hands, do not allow the
kitten to a street shoe. Along with dirty hands, or
street shoes can bring a variety of infections. While
the British have a very small kitten, always remember
that it may be somewhere under his feet. Kittens really
like to rush across the path, so that you can inadvertently
podfutbolit little tomboy. Also, if you need to climb
on a stool, ladder, ladder, before returning to the
ground, first check whether there is a kitten under
foot, as it does not look possible to accidentally
come. Also avoid leaving the kitten in a draft that
would not chill it. Always close the toilet lid, a
small kitten can get there by accident, and there
bybratsya it will be very difficult, especially if
he is home alone. Do not leave unattended bathtub
full of water. Household chemicals should also be
available for a small kitten. Remember - we are responsible
for those who have tamed, so think about your pet
it is your task in any environment, whether at home,
cottage or holiday.
CAT TOILET AND FILLING
home a kitten for the first time, just show him the
toilet, let him sniff it, dig it. Usually kittens
without problems begin to find the right place on
their own. Cats in general by their very nature are
very clean. If the kitten is suddenly a place of their
confused thoughts, you can try a variety of tools
that are sold in pet stores, such as "Antigadina."
In general, methods of weaning go to the toilet a
lot in the wrong place, for example, one way is to
put into this place a bowl of food. A cat will never
defecate near food. Failures also occur if for example
a kitten an upset stomach, but that's another story.
Once we unknowingly fed kitten "Whiskas",
after which he did not know the poor in any corner
of his place to go once began to feed normal food,
everything returned to normal. Filling for the toilet
can be selected individually. We and our cats such
as the British like wood filler, it has anti-bacterial
properties and keeps a good smell. The most convenient
toilet in our opinion - in the form of the house.
In the first cat with heavy pocketing a filler, it
will not scatter in different directions, and secondly
in the house there is only one way out in front of
which you can put a special mat. However, even if
the legs and the filler particles will stick, then
they will remain on this rug, and you will have less
work with the cleaning. Toilet - a house is good for
the fact that the kitten can hide it in their urgent
business from prying eyes. British kittens, and adult
cats can feel free to go to the toilet when they are
watching, they really are precious. Remember - the
toilet must always be clean.
BASINS FOR FOOD AND WATER
a kitten a few bowls for food and water. Suitable
for feeding metal bowls, stainless steel and ceramic
bowls for water. Do not use plastic bowls and plastic,
they can release harmful substances hazardous to the
health of the kitten. If you have multiple cats, you
need to have on each animal to a separate bowl. Do
not leave uneaten food in the bowl for more than 3
hours, it deals more with wet feed. Water should always
be clean and fresh, change water in a bowl in the
morning and evening. It is best if the water is filtered.
BAG - CARRYING
of the British cat is not possible without carrying
bags. The visit to the veterinarian, a trip to the
country - in all these cases without carrying is necessary.
'm Carrying a variety of forms, shapes and sizes.
To move to a car carrying a plastic suit, as it can
be large enough for that would carry it in their hands.
A short walk on foot to fit a small cloth carrying.
BRUSHES AND COMBS
pet stores represented a huge selection of items for
grooming. This is a different brush, comb, Slicker.
Different breeds of different combs are recommended.
The British wool is short, plush, it does not tangle,
mat it is not formed, so special care it requires.
For them, the most suitable rubber oval brushes, these
brushes have an antistatic effect, they are removed
from the hair kitten static electricity, and massage
the skin without causing damage. Combing the British
as possible for wool, and against the grain, in which
case hair is saturated with oxygen and has a healthy
appearance. Bathing a kitten without the need not
to be, by nature of cats coat has a natural protection
such as waxy coating. If too frequent bathing, this
protection is weakened and the hair can take an unhealthy
appearance. Therefore, to bathe the kitten should
be only in special cases, such as when it is stained
strongly in something.
you care about the safety of upholstered furniture
and vinyl wallpaper in your house, in which he lives
a cat, then you should take care and availability
of items in this house for turning your pets claws.
Now on the market represented a huge selection of
pet kogtetochek for every taste and purse. It is best
to use the scratching posts with sisal rope, it is
more durable. And that is why our cats prefer sisal
scratching it with verevkoy.Esli in the house there
is no scratching, and one day you find yourself torn
couch, then scold only themselves, but not a cat.
To train a kitten to sharpen its claws in the right
place should be at an early age. If you see a cat
to sharpen its claws perched on the corner of a sofa
or a door jamb, just grab it and take it to the scratching
post, show him where you need to sharpen claws. Several
times to dostachtochno to kitten realized that the
sofa is not such a good place, and for turning claws.
Kogtedralki normally present in the cat houses, but
it is best that they are in every room of your apartment
Even if the cat sharpening its claws on the kogtedralku,
it still needs to trim the claws. In pet stores sell
special kogterezki for cats. Accustomed to this procedure
should a kitten from childhood, or later, as adults,
doing this will become much more complicated. Put
the kitten on his lap, take the foot, gently massage
your fingertips, let him get used to. Slightly press
down on each finger to the claw moved out, and carefully
sostrigite kogterezkoy it. WARNING!!!
Only need to shear off the tip of the claw 1-2 mm.,
In any case does not shear off the claw, where he
has a pink color, there are blood vessels. Try to
cut his nails, scissors, taking a little finger -
the same thing will suffer and the kitten. And I want
to say one thing is very embarrassing moment, most
recently practiced surgery to remove a cat's claws.
Careless owners do such operations to its (non-rotated
to say pets) living toys, for the preservation of
their expensive furniture and wallpaper. I would like
to recommend this unfortunate people - do not start
none, live in the apartment with its own expensive
furniture. For those who do not know, an operation
to remove the claws - is a barbaric operation, together
with the claw is removed phalanx of a finger. The
animal actually becomes disabled, a cat broken balance
when walking, and a lot of side effects to show the
animal is not allowed. What do you think would be
good to life was a man without a phalanx of each finger?
Once again I want to remind you - we are responsible
for those who have tamed, be men.
RELATIONS WITH OTHER PETS
your home with other pets a dog or cat, the newly
arrived kitten should not immediately release into
the community. Other "senior soldiers' pets can
find a beginner hostile army, and speaking the language,
to make a" hazing "the newcomer. It is best
to put a novice into a room and arrange sessions dating,
always under your supervision. As a rule dating is
a few days. Leave the kitten alone with other animals
as soon as the first day, in any case impossible.
First meeting is best done when the kitten is to carry,
for a start they need to "sniff", and then
slowly release into the wild. When we first met are
always there in the early days of the animals may
snarl and hiss at each other. Leave the open carrying
of a number, in case of flight, the kitten will be
there to hide. Dog when we first met with the British
is best to keep a kitten on a leash and watch her
reaction. Of course a couple of blows is not excluded,
but ultimately peace and friendship prevail. No need
to punish the animals for aggression against newcomers,
the main thing patience. Demonstrate your love equally
to all, and the old residents and newcomers to the
territory of the right to respect those animals who
it was before the arrival of new residents.
BRITISH KITTEN AND CHILDREN
your house has kids, especially little from 1.5 to
3 years, explain to them that little kitten is not
a toy, but a living creature, and must be handled
very carefully. At this age, our kids do not realize
their actions and not commensurate force. I know a
case when a small child just strangled a chicken in
his hand because he was soft and fluffy, just no one
has explained to him that the chicken can not crush
in your hand. Also, conversely, make sure that the
kitten would have scratched your baby. Well, I think
everybody knows that young children do not be left
unattended, so long on this subject will not talk.
about discipline. Immediately determine what should
be done kitten, and what is not. Do not play with
him in the musi pusi, if committed by an evil action,
such as jumping on a table, or an attempt on the curtain,
well let them know that you do not like it. The most
effective way of punishment, it's loud, or spraying
water from the sprinkler. Be patient, and three or
four times is enough punishment for breaking the bad
habits. In biology this is called a conditioned reflex.
But never leave a bad deed without punishment. I'll
tell you an interesting case from the practice, our
cat is a bullet flew out of the apartment as soon
as the door opened, and already had to catch it somewhere
a few floors. What attracted her so there is not clear.
Frankly, it's very annoying, but the solution was
found. I once took a large tin can from under the
tomato paste, put there a big bunch of keys, and very
quietly quietly left the apartment. And then as if
I came home, and has a loud openly began to open the
door. And as usual, "missile" and went.
As if from a low starting my cat lomanulas the entrance,
but then it was a surprise in the form obrushisheysya
on her way tin with the keys. Hit the concrete floor,
tin gave a loud unpleasant sound, amplified a bunch
of keys inside and reflected from the bare walls of
the entrance. It happened so suddenly that my "rocket"
given a false start, and the same bullet disappeared
just now in the opposite direction for the apartment
door. Most of these races were not observed, as they
say otsheptali grandmother.
in principle, highlights the content of a small kitten
in the house. If something is forgotten, by all means
remember and shall add. On feeding, immunizations
and so on, you learn from other items in Advices.
