How to raise kittens

It’s both one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences you can have as a cat parent: raising one or multiple kittens. But orphaned kittens have very special needs, and many things to learn from a mother that is no longer present. So how do you fill that gap?



If your kitten was separated from her mother at an early stage, she will likely be quite fearful of the world and her surroundings. It is now your job to facilitate her growth into a healthy adult.

One of the most important things that you can do is build your kitten’s confidence, which will allow her to feel more comfortable and more affectionate towards you. If you manage to do this successfully, the bond that you and your kitten will develop is quite unique.
