Question 5 week old kitten

Hi, My friend just gave me a kitten but she's only 5 weeks old. She eats wet and dry food mixed with water or the kitten replacement milk and drinks water with no problem and she uses the litter box well.

I was just wondering if theres anything special i need to do for her.
She is the cutest orange kitten ever!

Hi Kimberly Marie, welcome aboard ! I believe you will be a GREAT mom to your kitten, giving her life-long unconditional love and caring for her.
Have you taken her to have kitten regular things at the vet ? I mean worming, general check ups, flea treatment, etc. When he's strong enough the vet will advise you to give her vaccination shots. I think that's all.
Oh, not really ... did you buy her cat toys, treats and scratching posts ? And what is her name ? Any picture ?

I'm Irene BTW !

Susan was about 6 weeks when I got her. Apart from vet trips there's nothing really special required as her mother would have probably weaned her. Just make certain her food is giving her the righ nutritional elements like Taurine, decent kitten food will often have a good balance for your kit. Optimum or Purina Supercoat aren't bad options for balance and for the necessary trace minerals they need. I just don't like them because of the fact they like so many other pet foods come from companies that do or support companies that do do inhumane animal testing.
