Calling All Kittens!
It's Kitten Kamp!
Kitten Kamp is an early education, socialization and training program designed to help caregivers and kittens start off on the right paw. The goal of Kitten Kamp is to educate caregivers on all aspects of raising a kitten and then live with a cat in the family and help prevent behavioral problems from developing. The camp also aims to establish a close bond between the cat, the caregiver, and the clinic.
his four-week program features one-hour classes that focus on important skills and topics to strengthen the connection between you and your kitten. These early months of life are important in determining the health, behavior and well-being of the adult cat kittens become.
Kitten Kamp is designed to help cuddly kittens grow into happy and confident cats. At Kitten Kamp, kitten parents will learn:
- Information on litter box training and proper elimination habits.
- Socialization techniques to help kittens become comfortable around people and other animals.
- Tips for handling common behavior issues such as scratching and biting.
- Demonstrations and hands-on practice for grooming and nail trimming.
- Discussions on the importance of proper nutrition and exercise for kittens and how to promote healthy development.
- Information on preventative healthcare and vaccination schedules.
- Techniques for getting kittens ready for the carrier and the vet, such as getting them used to being handled and the sounds and smells of the vet clinic.
- Information on appropriate play, toys and interactive playtime to keep kittens mentally and physically stimulated.
- Q&A sessions with a cat friendly advocate.
Kitten Kamp is free and donations appreciated. Any donations collected during Kitten Kamp are allocated for Kitten Kamp supplies, with the remainder applied to our Compassion Fund. Learn more
