Kitten socialisation

It is very important that kittens are well socialised as it prepares them to cope with living as part of a household. Well socialised kittens are more likely to form positive and strong bonds with their owners and animal housemates and will also manage any changes within their environment without becoming distressed. This has a positive effect on the cat’s welfare and the relationship it has with its owner and other pets in the household throughout its life. Kittens that have not been socialised are far less likely to be able to cope with living in a home environment, so before you get a new kitten always ask how the breeder has socialised them.
