Before you take a kitten into the house, think about whether you can devote time to it and, most importantly, provide everything you need. Pedigree animals are picky in food, require attention and good care. In return, you will receive a being who will love you loyally and unselfishly.
For the appearance of the kitten, prepare a place for feeding, a toilet with a filler, a scratching post, toys. Buy a roomy toilet, it can be in the form of a house, pour more filler. The British are very clean, so they like to dig in the sand and throw it around. You shouldn't have any difficulties in getting used to the litter box. Most of the kittens of this breed are very smart, and the mother-cat has already taught everything you need.
British kittens are very mobile. On the one hand, this breed is very unobtrusive, and on the other hand, kids may demand to be played with them. Therefore, at the initial stage of growing up, be ready to devote time to the kitten. If there are other animals in the house, the kittens will get along well with them. This breed is very accommodating and non-conflicting, therefore, they do not have attacks of jealousy. You must make sure that other animals do not offend the baby. While he can not fight them back. But when it grows up, and this breed is known for its large size, other animals will not bully it again. At the same time, kittens will not suffer at all alone when you leave. Just take care of fun for the crumbs.
Set up a play area for fun. It can be a whole complex of a house, a ladder, scratching posts with tied mice and balls. Because of their tendency to obesity, cats must have full physical development.
If the kitten will live in a country house, equip a spacious enclosure on the site for his walks. British cats are not big fans of long journeys, they are couch potatoes. And nevertheless, there is a danger that strangers can take a walking kitten, because this breed is very famous. Although some animals are very aggressive towards strangers. But they love household members infinitely. But they do not tolerate familiar treatment to themselves. They will be more likely next to the owner than in his arms. At the same time, cats of this breed are very fond of home holidays and are not afraid of crowds of guests.
Don't expect kittens to show affection for you by climbing onto their knees and humming softly. They will always be there, like dogs, but an open manifestation of feelings does not happen often. But if suddenly the kitten wants attention, then he will inform you about this with a loud purr.
Consider the kitten's diet. Be sure to ask the breeder what and how he fed the kitten. And at first, stick to the usual menu. So that later the baby does not have health problems, decide on which system you will feed him. Or it is completely natural food that you will cook for him separately. Or it is purchased dry food, but always premium - the digestive system of British cats is very sensitive.
To take care of your kitten, get a special lotion for rubbing the eyes - kittens have discharge, and a special brush for combing thick hair.
