Tips for a cool and confident kitty

  • For the healthy development of the kittens, it is important that they stay with the mother till they are eight weeks old.
  • Socialize kittens as they react more readily in the presence of the mother cat.
  • Kittens who are not socialized become scared and stressed and the chances of succumbing to diseases grow larger.
  • The more contact and handling a kitten receives from human, the better adjustment she can make.
