It is better not to take the baby from the litter too early, separated from his mother , brothers and sisters.

As soon as you offer a kitten food from the table , he realizes that his rank than you, respectively, and it will behave in a businesslike way , making it difficult to raise a kitten.

By the way, the same goes for your bed. In fact, for your kitty bed - it is a symbol of power and supremacy . There's strongest focuses your scent . Once you allow your cat to lie down on your bed , you actually compare it with the rights . A squeegee it off the bed , you show who's boss . Here are just starting to do it from an early age. First, the kitten will be hard to know their place , and secondly, if an adult cat or a cat already established themselves in-law lying on the bed , and then they suddenly began to cast out them - is fraught with resentment and aggression.
Educating the kitten does not tolerate indulgences. If you have something to allow or disallow it - that is all. From an early age to teach a kitten to the tray and kittens. Accustom the cat to sharpen its claws only with special plates can be purely mechanical , taking his paws and claws to tear making . Take care not to accidentally make a kitten sick.

If the kitten did you scratched - punish him. Of course, brute force with respect to the animal can not be used . A good method of training a kitten - a quick flick on the nose , which will enable him to understand that you can not do so .

Some kittens scratched when they are taken by hand , because they are afraid
and unusual. Teach a kitten to your hands to gradually : take him in my arms for a few seconds , and then release him to know that there is no danger . But take a little kitten in his arms to be very careful . Place one hand under the neck and chest of a kitten , and a second support him from behind. Kittens should not be taken by the scruff - you can make the kitten hurt, and it will no longer trust you . If you have at home with small children and have not yet grown up kitten , do not allow them to take the animal . They certainly will squeeze and hug him, but it would violate the digestive system.
