Your new Kitten or Puppy
Canterbury Vets - New Kitten

Puppy under blanket

Congratulations on your new kitten/puppy.  Your family will enjoy getting to know your new family member.

FerretThe first night is likely to be disturbing for the family. Keep in mind that suddenly being away from his or her’ mother, brothers and sisters is a new experience that will be confusing and frightening for your kitten/puppy.

At bed time, your kitten/puppy will naturally make there loneliness known and the sooner you accomplish the task of teaching them where they should sleep the better for both of you. Resist the temptation to go and comfort the kitten/puppy. If you leave them alone, natural fatigue will take over they will go to sleep. If you relent and take him or her into your own bed/bedroom, you are throwing away any progress you have made and he or she will always expect this treatment.

Good luck, and remember the first night is usually the hardest.
