I’m A First Time Pet Owner And Need Help
I'm a first time pet owner and need help! I recently adopted a kitten (pictured below) and though she is inexplicably adorable there are so many things that I am completely lost on. I've never owned a pet before (besides some fish.) So diving straight in with a kitten might not have been the most well thought out decision. Do I regret it? No. Do I need help? Yes.
There are so many things I didn't know about kittens that came as sort of a slap in the face once I brought my kitten home. For example, kittens have immensely more energy than adult cats. In my case, my kitten tends to sleep until around 3:00am and then reaps havoc until around 7:00am. I'm so sleep deprived it's not even funny. How do I wear her out so that she will sleep through the night? I know cats are nocturnal but there has to be some way to tucker her out right?
Another thing I didn't really think about was how clumsy and curious kittens are. She's insisting on sitting on my keyboard as I type this. She has knocked over plants, almost toppled the Christmas tree, and is obsessed with clothes hanging in the closet. I know this is part of the process of kittens growing up but exactly how long should I expect this to go on? Is there something that I can do to keep her from being so clumsy? What would a good distraction be?
How do I be a good pet owner?
