4. Make sure that everyone in the household is okay with having a kitten around
Since a new kitten will have the run of the household, it’s important that everyone feels comfortable with a cat around the home. If the whole family is involved with the pet, it’s important to teach everyone how to treat and take care of the kitten. Posting schedules can help younger children know when to play with the kitten, feed it, clean the litter box, etc.
