RagaMuffin Kittens Bonding

How to Bond with Your RagaMuffin Kittens

 

RagaMuffin Kittens Adjusting to New Home and Other Pets

Introduce them (or introduce your new RagaMuffin kittens to its new home) by isolating your new kitten in a small room, letting the household cat/dog smell the newcomer through the cracks under the door. Feed your new kitten in this room and provide the kitten with his or her own litter box. Show your RagaMuffin the food, water, and litter box.  Do not force your kitten to come to you.  You will have a much easier time having your RagaMuffin kittens adjusting to your home if you allow the kitten to initiate contact.  Wait until your kitten is comfortable with you before picking the kitty up for cuddles.  Spend time with your new kittens in this room, playing and cuddling. This will enable your new kitty to bond with you before he or she is introduced to the other animals or to the larger area of your home. After your RagaMuffin has become comfortable in their room (playing with you and not showing signs of nervousness), gradually allow your new kittens time out of the room, but only with your supervision.  Simply leave the door open in the room where you have been keeping your RagaMuffin kittens and allow the kittens to come out and explore. Never leave your new RagaMuffin alone with other animals until you are certain that they have become friends. This could take several weeks if you have other animals. (more…)
