One of the best sources of information is your veterinary clinic. Not only will they be able to provide you with free leaflets and information, they may also have their own guide they give out to new kitten owners, and books that they suggest you read or have on your reference shelf in case of emergency. There are so many books published on the subject of cat and kitten care that it’s easy to get lost, or pick up a book that’s not quite as comprehensive as it could be, and a recommendation or two from your veterinary can allow you to choose between books that he thinks are the best ones available for your situation.

If you are still at the deciding stage about whether or not it’s a good idea to bring a kitten into your home, check out some recently published books on kitten care from your local library. As with human healthcare, trends in feline healthcare also change to reflect new techniques, new medications, and the environments that cats now live in, so reading up on recently published books will allow you to learn current ideas and solutions rather than some that could be outdated.

The Internet offers a great resource for anyone thinking of buying, or having just bought, a kitten. Here you will find websites that are run by both professionals, and ordinary people with a passion for cats. Amongst the cat websites you’ll find everything you could ever want to know from cat toy reviews to latest feline research news, and everything in between. There are even online courses you can take to help you learn about taking proper care of your kitten.

There’s so many ways to learn about making sure you keep your kitten healthy, so it’s just a question of finding the right resource that works for you, and having it accessible so that whenever you need it, you just have to open or log-in and the answer to your question will be there for you.
