          4) Secure any balconies and windows with nets or mosquito nets and, especially the first days when the cat is at home, make sure to keep doors and windows closed to prevent it from escaping or falling by mistake.

            5) If your house was on the ground floor and the kitten had a chance to go out,get a collar for him to wear with your address indicated. However, we recommend not letting him out until he is set and quiet in the new home.

              6) Cats haveneed to get your nails done, and he really likes to do it. It's a matter of instinct, and you can't help it. Or rather, you can only do something to save your furniture, like rgive your cat a scratching post, even better if in version "climbing gyma".

                7) When you take the micietto home,grant him his time: whether he has recently been separated from his mother or has an unknown background, arriving in a new home is always a trauma. Let him settle down calmly: open the pet carrier and let it come out by itself, without forcing it, at the most entice it with a little baby food. When he's out, have him explore one room at a time, not worrying about hiding for hours or not wanting to eat. Slowly, perhaps when you are not in the area, it will begin to make the territory its own.
