Judging by the kittens, do they know how to clean themselves?
Most kittens will learn how to clean from the mother cat. But if your kitten is separated from its mother early enough, and in most cases, the kitten will not know how to clean its body. Watch to see if your cat licks her lips, cleans her face after eating, or grooms her fur to keep them clean? If the kittens can do those things on their own, then that’s good news. If not, then you will need to be more groomed or groomed.
Gently wipe the cat with a damp cloth
When the kitten is finished eating or if the kitten does not appear to be clean, get a soft damp cloth soaked in moisture to wipe it clean. Wipe it off quickly, as the kittens will definitely not like being wiped. Just do 1 or 2 times is enough.
Regularly check the bottom of the kitten’s bottom and tail
Kittens often have difficulty cleaning the bottom of their tail, so you will need to help the kitten clean this part. Use a cotton pad or wet cloth to do this. The kittens will be kept clean and free of bad odors until they can clean themselves.
Help the cat to go to the toilet
If your cat is too young, rub his stomach and under the tail to encourage the cat to go to the bathroom. Use a damp cotton pad to gently wipe away any dirt. You should do this every time you finish feeding the cat. This is really only necessary for very young kittens that are only a few weeks old or younger.
Limit bathing your kitten
If your kitten is too dirty or has fleas, you can bathe the cat. If not, do not bathe the kitten, or in the event your kitten has skin problems and the veterinarian recommends bathing the cat with its own treatment. Use only a little warm water in the tub or sink and shampoo for young cats. For fleas, you can use Dawn dishwashing liquid (the type used to wash dishes by hand), as kittens are often not tolerant of adult cat flea shampoo. Be sure to dry your kittens with a soft cloth and keep the kitten warm until they are completely dry.
Groom the kitten daily
Use a soft bristle brush to gently brush the kitten. This will help remove excess hair and keep your cat clean. If your cat doesn’t like brushing, just try to brush a few times a day. If you are a long haired cat, you will need to be more persistent than usual, try brushing for a few minutes or longer a few times a day.
