 The First Few Nights Previous Next

Kittens do not take long to adjust to their new home, away from mother and the rest of the litter. They tend to sleep rather a lot and should be settled down at your bedtime after the last feed for the day. It often helps to put a hot water bottle under a layer or two of blankets.

Protect the kitten from draughts, possibly with a soft, washable blanket or cushion in a carton or basket. Do not disturb it from then until the morning.
