What To Expect When Getting A Kitten

We can all come to an agreement that kittens are the reason why the sun comes up every morning. Kittens are wonderful little ball of furs and if your thinking about getting one then please do. There is a few things you should know but finer details. I’m just kidding. Here is my finer details.

Speculoos (Speculoos is a ginger spread here in the Netherlands. It’s like gingerbread and fudge had a lovechild. Its heaven) has been a part of our family for nearly two months now and although I’ve enjoyed every last second of it. You also need to know of the ugly that happens behind the scenes.

  1. Cat Claws

Any cat and I mean any cat will scratch. It’s a thing. It’s not going anywhere so if you want a cat just know claw marks is your new best friend.

  1. Bite The Human

Oh and they love to bite. They’re teeth is razor sharp so sign yourself up for some bite marks. Don’t worry, the scratch marks will always be the winner.

  1. Litter Box What?

This one is probably my least favorite one. When they’re in a new surrounding they don’t usually know straight of the bat where they’re litter box is. Read: Pee and poop everywhere.

  1. Cat Hair Everywhere

This one like with any animal you keep inside the house is to be expected really. Cat hair will get everywhere but simply groom your fur baby with a brush every day. I just bought a baby hair brush. It really doesn’t need to be fancy. Your cat will groom itself on the most part. Just get those loose hairs that causes those hairballs.

Trick: To remove cat hair from furniture and clothes take normal tape, wrapped it around your hand sticky side up and just dab dab dab. Your kitten will see this as a fun game and help.

  1. Sleepless Nights

Cats are night creatures. Get used to this idea because I can promise you now your little fur baby won’t see your foot hanging out from the side of your bed as a sign to leave you alone your sleeping but instead of something to chew on. I’m saying this as Speculoos is biting my toe.

  1. Whiny Husband Because He Isn’t Getting Enough Attention Anymore
  2. People Don’t Come To Visit You. It’s All For The Kitten

Honestly it’s amazing and I love my boy so much. It melts my heart when he starts to purr when I pet him and never leaves my side. He even grooms me at every chance he gets. He sleeps in my neck and licks my ears. He is my sweetheart.
