Kittens are tiny and cute, but just like children, they are very curious. It’s tempting to let them roam free in your home, but once they become mobile they will try to get into everything to explore. For ease and their safety, it’s best to create a dedicated space for them. While a spare bathroom is ideal, a crate or pen tucked in any room will work!
Here are some tips to prepare for kittens:
If Momma Cat is still in the picture, she will need a safe place for her and her kittens to rest and grow.
If Momma is friendly, consider bringing her inside to raise her babies in the safety of a home. A crate or pen in a quiet room or a garage is perfect!
If she isn’t friendly, or you can’t take them in, put a nice big box out with towels for her to nest in. Once the kittens are weaned consider Trap / Neuter / Returning the family.
