Kitten care is a bit like building the foundation of a house. You can get it very wrong, so creating a house (or cat) that will not have a long or healthy life. Or you can get it so right that the house (and the cat) DOES live a long and healthy life. Good kitten care is essential to long lasting health. Strong bones, healthy tissue, good immune system are just some of the perks your cat can expect if well cared for as a kitten. This translates as fewer trips to the vet for you.
