Discouraging rough play

Young, active cats and kittens less than 2 years old commonly display play-motivated aggression. Kittens explore anything that moves, and may swat at, pounce on, or bite objects that resemble prey (i.e. your hands and fingers!). This is normal cat behavior. A kitten that was separated from its family early may play more roughly than a kitten that has learned when to stop the rough play from its mother and siblings. Use toys instead of your hands to teach kitty appropriate play. See Choosing cat toys.

Microchip at a young age

Home again microchip serviceMicrochipping is the best way to locate a lost pet. Shelters, humane societies, and veterinary hospitals regularly use scanners to identify found pets and contact their families. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, programmed with an ID number, and is injected under your pet’s skin, usually in the scruff of the neck. The Home Again Microchip Identification System recovers a lost pet in the U.S. every 7 minutes and operates 24/7.
