What do you want to know?

1) take the kitten to the vet first.

2) feed the kitten an all canned food diet right from the start. At her age feed small meals frequently, as often as she will eat.

2) provide a litter box in a quiet place but near by so she can get to it when she needs it. She'll probably know what to do with it right away, but if she misses, just sprinkle some litter over the 'mess', sweep it up and put it in the litter box, then she will know what the litter box is for.

Clean the area with a good cleanser to make sure there is no odor left behind for her to repeat. White vinegar and baking soda is good for that.

Do not use clumping litter until she is at least 6 months old.

Kitten proof your home, tie down or remoe things that she may knock over and break or hurt herself on. Be careful about strings and threads and dental floss.

Kittens have endless energy, she will need to be played with a lot.

Congratulations on the rescue!

Follow this tips:
  • Teach her to use the litter box by placing her in the box after meals and play sessions
  • Pet her frequently
  • Allow her to experience different walking surfaces (carpet, linoleum, etc.)
  • Do not allow her to bite or scratch during play. If she does, redirect her attention to a toy.
  • Reward friendly behavior with treats or praise.
  • Always be patient

May I ask why you shouldn't use clumping litter right from the start? Thanks
