That was so nice of your father to have taken one kiten over. Congratulations! And do not forget to post pictures
Now back to caring for the kitten - these are some of the things you will need at this stage:
1. Vet visit - deworming needs to be continued. They start getting vaccines at 9 weeks of age. 3 weeks after they should get boosters. It is preferable for the cats to stay indoors. Dangers like cars, dogs, wild life birds ( can kill little kittens) or even other cats or people could harm a cat fatally. If you consider your area is safe however, the cat will need extra vaccines for the outdoors.
2. Small cage, bathroom (to stay in - not the whole house or he will get lost) with : litterbox, bowl of fresh food and water 24/7. Allow to explore the rest of the house gradually under your supervision until he will get accomodated with the surroundings.
If it is a multiple cat household more litter boxes are recommneded to avoid territorial issies. Disinfect box every two weeks or less depending on the litter.
3. Scratching post - on your knees show them the motion and they will catch up on it
4. Toys like little balls, fishing poles. Do not leave strings or anything that kitten could choke on while alone.
5. Bath - once a week only until he will get proper flea, heartworm, ear mites and ticks medicine. Use baby or flea shampoo (use the latter in the following manner - dilute the size of a dime in lots of water, lather and then rinse kitty well). Head can be wiped with a well rung warm cloth in order to clean - because eyes, mouth and ears must not come in contact with soapy or plain water. When they will become of age (and weight) so they can get flea medicine they will hardly need a bath unless accidents happen (they keep themsleves pretty clean)
Clean ears with cotton balls if wax or dirt build up occur. Do not use cotton swabs unless you are confident of how far you should reach - which should be only at sight.
*Revolution is one of the best medicines to prevent cats from getting fleas, heart worm, ear mites and ticks. Avoid at all costs over the counter medicines for the parasites mentioned. Hartz is known to have caused numerous victims especially among cats. Please do not use. Discuss with your vet what is best for your kitty to use.
6. Brush once or twice a week at least. Sometimes a well rung warm cloth can be used to remove loose hair and/or dirt - it will also remind the kitty of the baths his momma used to give him/her
7. Time to adjust - if diarrhea occurs it might be because of stress (separation from his mates + different environment), change in food or worms might still be present. White rice and boiled chicken (give tiny pieces no bones) are known to bind them up. Prolonged diarrhea causes dehydration which can be very serious in a young cat. If it lingers for more than a few days and/or is accompanied by blood in stool kitty needs to see vet.
This is some of the information I have handed out to the kitty parents that adopted my foster babies. There are more issues that you will need information on such as behaviour - why not playing with your hands with the kitty, the importance of spay/neuter at 6 months of age and NOT declawing. Feel free to ask all you need to know and everybody will love to help
