Christmas Kittens and Kitten Books

This year as always there will be Children wanting a Christmas kitten.

Christmas Kittens

Many of these kittens will find good homes with people who understand and love their cats but many will be less fortunate. From the point of view of a tiny kitten, is Christmas really the best time to leave mother? In a house full of loud children, parties and potentially dangerous decorations Christmas can be a frightening and potentially fatal environment. Rampaging children, tipsy adults and poisonous pine needles present a very real danger. Add to that the needs of a new kitten in the midst of food preparation, parties and present giving and the little one could well be forgotten.

A Christmas kitten will be an Easter cat and sadly many cats are abandoned when the reality of this sinks in. These are the homes people prefer not to think about – the ones you see the animal charities talk about. In addition, some particularly despicable people will abandon a senior cat and buy a kitten to replace it! How cruel!

Rescues are often overflowing around this time of year with abandoned animals and while the kittens might find a new home, the senior cats are likely to be put to sleep just for being old. Why not consider adopting a senior or special needs cat? Be sure you know what that would involve however…

The best time to buy a cat or, more particularly, a tiny kitten is when the home will be quiet and the transition easier for the pet. In the meantime, why not buy some kitten books and prepare for the event by reading up on cat care and cat centered toilet training?
