BRINGING YOUR KITTEN HOME

Have A Cat Carrier
You should have a carrier for the drive home, and any time you go driving with your cat.  Even a brave kitty can be startled by strangers, passing cars, and barking dogs.  It's not worth risking your kitten getting frightened or running free in an unfamiliar environment.  And if you should have car trouble or a fender-bender, a carrier will be very handy while you straighten things out.

Begin With Isolation
You should have an isolated room prepared before your new kitten arrives, as described on our page about preparation.  It is important to keep your kitten isolated at first, and it's a necessary condition of our health guarantee.

Introductions
You should make introductions slowly, and in a controlled setting.  A kitten who is frightened by a barking dog or a shrieking child will take longer to feel comfortable again. 

Parents usually know the best way to maintain calm around the new kitten.  Don't worry, Bengals are brave and playful by nature.  Soon they'll be playing until the children are tired!

Pets can smell each other even though the kitten is in an isolated room.  We find that after a few days, animals get used to each other's presence, and introductions are easier.

Health Examination
Remember, your kitten must be examined within 72 hours of leaving our care, or else the health guarantee is void.  Holidays and weekends do count in your 72 hours.  We don't intend to inconvenience you, but after 72 hours your kitten could begin showing symptoms of infections they've caught after leaving our care.  Bacteria and viruses don't respect holidays!

Your kitten will be about 12 weeks old when they're ready to go home, so one thing your vet will mention is scheduling a rabies vaccination. This is a legal requirement in most states and it's always a good idea. It's not a risky procedure. I'd love to take care of this beforehand but 12 weeks of age is too early for rabies vaccination.

If your veterinarian finds anything unusual or concerning, please let us know right away.  We are also happy to help or offer advice with any health or behavioral concerns you may have. 

Remember, it's not unusual for kittens to sleep a lot.  For the first day or two, they may not eat very much.  But before they really start eating, check out our diet page because one of the most common problems is over-feeding.  High quality cat foods are very concentrated, and most kittens will try to eat more than they can digest.
