After a long analysis, under the pressure of the family (children, mother, grandmother, husband, wife), or you want a cat, you convinced to adopt a cat. The day you will meet the new family member will be a special one. Both for you and the cat. And it’s not hard to tell Kitten, welcome.
It is best to take it at the age of three months. At this age, she prepared for the trials of life, by her mother. After three months, you can adopt a cat at any time. It is preferable to take it from a shelter. Those in shelters need a lot of love and a better life. They will overwhelm you with their love. You can also get a cat on the street. In this way, you will extend his life.
By caring for her and giving her your love, she rewards you, loving you unconditionally. For the kitten moving to a new home involves a certain degree of stress. But if she is welcome, you can say Kitten, welcome. She will certainly understand.
To adapt to the new home it is good to bring it home early in the morning. It is preferable in a carrier, it will feel safer. Thus, the kitten will have enough time to accommodate. She will carefully inspect every corner of the house.
It is not necessary to make the first contact with each member of the family. It is preferable to let it rest for several hours. The kitten has to get used to the atmosphere in the house. She must understand that no one poses a threat to her.
Such an attitude will help her establish her place.
To perceive the whole family as a community with a well-defined hierarchy. As long as no one pays any attention to her, she will not know whether there is a leader of the group.
The first guidelines show the cat, right from the beginning, where the water and food vessel is.
These should placed in a place where the cat can have a free path at any time of the day. Ideally, you should interested in what kind of food fed by its previous owners. Give him the same kind of food.
Also inform yourself in advance which is the ideal quantity to fed, depending on race, age and weight. Next to the special cat food, you can lure it with a little fish. It is possible to face the situation in which the previous owners offered him food prepared in the house. In this case, you have to be patient for a while.
The cat gets used to her food that contains all the nutrients she needs. After eating, praise and cat kitten.
Try to spend as much time relaxing and playing with her.
Also, from the beginning, you must show them where the litter box located.
It is best to place it in a remote but accessible place, for example, in the bathroom. You need to provide privacy when the cat uses litter.
I hope you think about her health too. For this you must grow the cat’s grass and make it available to her.

After the cat has adapted to her new home
You can go for a walk with your cat. Each time the route chosen increases more and more. The cat needs to move. And important is that she spends as much time in the owners’ company.
But do not forget: it is a cat and can be unpredictable. Never walk around without a harness if you want to keep it. Otherwise, the risk is very high to lose
During winter or autumn, when the rainy days and bad weather make you sit at the “mouth of the stove” and read a good book or watch TV, the biggest pleasure of your cat will be to calm down on your lap.
If, you have children, even very young, do not worry. The cat will take care of them, play with them. Almost any cat breed is part of your cat, she will love children. And cats without pedigrees are loving too.. And the child will grow up being more responsible, more empathetic. She won’t be selfish. Especially if you are the only child the risk of becoming selfish is very high.
The need for a cat rest
The little feline is always playing. But you must not forget that no matter how lively it is, it also needs rest. When you notice that because for the most part it is becoming less and less active, take it to its place and let it rest. You have to notice what her favorite corner is in the house. Surely, for most cats, it will be wherever you are. It would be preferable, however, to have an area where you can never bothered.
If, you do not want to share the bed with the kitten, then from the first days insist that none of the family members allow it to accessed on the bed or pillow. That is impossible to me. If, you are unwell. It known that cats are excellent therapists. But for that, he has to get in touch with you.
In any case, the cat should not disturb when resting. Not when she eats. Not even when washing.
The most difficult thing
It seems that the most difficult thing is to get the cat to stay at home alone when you go to work.
As a safety measure, it collects from its path everything that could damage. Clothing, shoes, or any other object that could transform into toys. Instead, leave them with various cat-specific accessories: scratches, bells. The cat will delight with them while you are away from home.
In time, you will get used to waiting for you to come home.
Ideally, you should adopt at least two cats. During your absence from home, they will keep each other company
Remember: the cat is a member of the family. It is appropriate to treat her with love and respect.
From my experience
Fortunately, everyone in my family loves cats. Over time, I learned a lot about them. First of all, I found out how much love you give him, so you will receive it in return. And unconditional. Provided you treat them properly, that is, as a family member.
Cats force you to order and clean. Otherwise, I will be a disaster in the house lo
I was lucky enough to work at home, so my cats didn’t suffer because I went to work. We had short trips, practically insensible.
Instead, they “worked” with me. They were rolling on the keyboard of the computer, they were leaning. But I was less stressed than I was without cats. And I didn’t have any lol.
Shortly after I started raising cats, I renovated my house after their queues. The house became more airy, tidier and easier to clean.
If, you decide to take a cat, you will find that it is one of the best choices of your life.
You need to be patient at first until the cat adapts. After this phase, the cat makes his chews and does not leave him out of the daily routine.
Instead, she will invoke you with her unconditional love. It is a very pleasant pet and does not need too much care. A dog requires much more time (I have dogs too!). It is ideal for those who live in the block. But do not forget: you are responsible for her health and life.
I would be happy to leave a comment and share your experience with cats.
You can now learn to communicate directly with your cat.
