The tinal tips
As anexperienced cat owner, Marieke is happy to share some tips with new owners. She emphasizes the importance of preparation and seeking advice from a veterinarian. Looking back, she realizes she may have taken too many precautions. A birthing box or a box is useful for the cat during labor, and a scale is absolutely necessary to regularly weigh the kittens and monitor their health. A playpen provides a safe environment for the kittens when they are still small and vulnerable.
In addition to these specific tips, she also highlights some general points. Cats are wonderful pets that bring lots of love and companionship, but they also come with expenses. Think about the costs of vaccinations, microchipping, flea and deworming treatments, and any other potential veterinary expenses. Cats can easily live up to 20 years, so it's important to realize that they truly bond
with you and require long-term responsibility. Additionally, cats enjoy going outside and need the freedom to be themselves. Although cats are not as easily trainable as dogs, each one has its own unique character and charms.
They are all different in their behavior. Each one has its own charms. That's why it was difficult for my son and me to decide which one we liked the most and would keep with us during the first few weeks. Eventually, we chose Lefty because sheis the most relaxed and also comes to us the most on her own. So, in a way, she chose us 😉
The adventure of Olly, Poezel, and Lefty shows how special it is to have a litter of kittens at home. The natural instincts of the mother cat and the interaction with the other cat in the house create a beautiful dynamic. It is an experience that enriches both the owner and the family, teaching valuable lessons about caring for these vulnerable little beings.
So, if you're considering getting a cat, be prepared, be patient, and enjoy the process. Cats bring much joy and love to your life, and you will undoubtedly build a special bond with your furry companion.
