If you are planning to acquire a new Russian Blue kitten, you need to know a few important things about them. The recommended age to buy one is around 13 weeks. By then the kittens should be fully inoculated for ailments such as feline enteritis, cat flu, and probably leukaemia. Also, it is important that the breeder keeps the kittens for a few days following the inoculation to allow for recovery from any reaction as a result of the injections. You should confine your new kitten to one room as this will help it to settle into its new environment. Also, do not allow it to go outside until you are certain that it will not be frightened and run away.
At russian blue kittens for sale we can connect you with local breeders that are known to have kittens available. It is important to first go and see the kitten and its parents before it is ready to depart, and observe it as it grows up, taking note of the development of its personality. It is recommended that you choose a bright-eyed, playful and active kitten with a shiny coat and mite-free ears. It should be remembered that even though cats are comparatively independent pets, two kittens will obviously be happy to enjoy each other’s company and play together if you normally spend the whole day at work.
Once you get your kitten, ensure that you have all the relevant documents i.e. certificates of inoculation, pedigrees, registration slips, and duly filled-in transfer slips. (You should not be alarmed if these documents are not available as in some cases registrations may be delayed for some time and the breeder sends them to you). So long as you have the registration certificate, you can forward the transfer slips to the relevant authorities in order for the cat to be registered under your name.
When you take your kitten home ensure that you arrange to have a warm basket with woolen blankets in it (a “vet bed” which is a commercial fur rug that can be conveniently washed and sterilized is more preferable). A litter tray and a bowl of water should be placed beside it. The kitten should be kept in a quiet room and allowed to explore the house slowly after eliminating every manner of danger and before introducing it to other family pets with time.
Remember that your kitten is a fast learner and so you should talk to it, encouraging good behaviors and discouraging bad conducts. Ensure that you give the kitten the diet which it has been accustomed to. Keep in mind that at three months, it should be served with three meals per day. The majority of cats do not overfeed as they are not greedy animals. Thus, see how much the kitten wants, and always remove fresh rejected food out. However, there is no problem with leaving dried food down at all times if you so desire.
When the kitten is 4 to 6 months old, it only requires three meals per day. After that, you can reduce the meals to twice per day. This is important for its maintenance of proper weight.
