Choosing a kitten to put under the tree

Thursday, December 16, 2010

  • active outgoing
  • shy timid
  • active aggressive

If you’re going to pick out a new kitten, you’ll want to find one that is friendly and well socialized. Take the kitten you like to a quiet corner and make sure that she is content and likes to be stroked.  A kitten who constantly struggles, may not be for you. You may also want to tease the kitten with a feather or cat toy to see if she plays.  If she bats and pounces on it, she’s a normal, playful inquisitive kitten.  If your kitten will go outdoors and you don’t want one that will chase birds and chip monks, ask about the mother cat.  Predatory aggression is inherited and also learned.  The mother’s behavior may give you insight into her kitten’s future traits.
