Kitten Care Directory

Kittens require special care and attention, especially if they have been separated from their mother. If you've adopted a kitten, it's your job to keep your new feline friend safe, warm, and fed. You'll also need to tackle some more challenging tasks, like showing the kitten how to actually go to the bathroom and where. Remember to be gentle with your new kitten.
