New Kitty

I just got a kitten yesterday!!! I am new to the boards to for that reason. My name is PJ I live in Lincoln Park Michigan right next to detroit, and I have a five week old kitten I just was wondering some tips or advice that I need to know to help my kitten. We got him a week early and I hope that doesn't screw the kitten up?

Ideally the kitten should stay with its mother until 12 weeks. That time it is completly weaned and it has learnt cat social skills and looking after itself. The best thing to do is look at posts around the forum to gather information, if you have a specific question ask it

I would keep such a youngster in a small area to begin with so
he/she will always find litterbox...kittens that small can have accidents and you dont want that to become a habit.

I got my 2 kittens when they were only 5 weeks old (rescued from pet shop )

For the 1st couple of days i kept them in the kitchen with a comfy bed and there litter tray untill they were litter trained and got used of there surroundings

Then they started to explore around and come into the sitting room and play and pester the dogs

For the 1st couple of weeks they will eat and sleep alot

Mine are now 3 months old and i would not be without them they are awake more now and they very active
