New Kitten Checklist


Are you considering getting a kitten? Could you benefit from some extra guidance on caring for your new pet?


Raising a kitten is a big step, and you are responsible for looking after the cat throughout the entirety of its lifetime. The Kitten Contract can help you make an informed decision about whether a kitten is right for you, providing much-needed advice on finding a healthy and friendly kitten.


The Kitten Contract, endorsed by the Cats Protection League, the Cat Group, PDSA, the Institute for Feline Medicine and Battersea Cats & Dogs Home, is a free online toolkit which will help you avoid some of the pitfalls that can occur during your kitten's development. It covers the following: identifying signs of ill health, understanding the kitten's behaviour and determining how comfortable it is around people. Whether your kitten is from a neighbour, a pedigree breeder or a homing organisation, be it free or paid for, the same advice applies to all.
