How to calm a kitten

Kitten owners always looks for great way for how to calm a kitten. So today i will explain you guys the best way to this. I usually use these ways at my vet because these steps always work with kittens. So read till the end to find the best tips.  Playtime for your cat. Take the time to play with your cat every day, several times a day if possible. Schedule playtime a few hours before bedtime and use that time to tire your cat out or get her up. If you are done playing with your kitten and find that he still wants to play, show him the toy. Let him continue to use the toy to get ready for bed.

Some toys to consider include these fluffy mice, cat balls with or without bells, feathers hanging from a string on a doorknob. Using a toy tied to a string at the end of the rod is a great way to get your cat to really play without you having to run. You can stay in one place and use the perch to make your cat run around you. Your hands won’t hurt either!

Implement a Cool Down Period at the End of Play Time At the end of play time with your cat, use slower, smoother motions to encourage your cat to slow down. Don’t abruptly stop playing with your cat during really active play. Stopping suddenly while your kitty is still playing won’t stop her from playing, it could result in your kitty chasing you or attacking you for continuing to circle. If you play with a certain toy during the game, ask the kitten to take that toy at the end of the game.

How to calm a kitten – Choose special toys for games. 

Playing with kittens should be considered a special time of day. Choose some toys that you only want to use while playing. When you’re not playing, put away these special toys. After a few games, your cat will know which toys are specifically designed to play with and will be delighted when they see them. Your cat should always have toys that he can play with at any time of the day. However, you can hide toys that make a lot of noise hard plastic ones or those with jingle bells or sounds before bed.

Feed your cat immediately after playing. 

A cat’s natural behavior is to eat, then clean, then sleep. You’ve tired your kitty out from playing, so feed him immediately after that. Your cat can complete her natural cycle by grooming herself and then taking a nap.

How to calm a kitten – Make your kitty work for food. 

Instead of leaving the kitty’s food all the time, let the cat work on the food. There are many commercial products you can buy that are specifically designed to conceal food. Then your kitty will have to work very hard to find and get the food out of the toy to eat it. You can also use cardboard boxes or other items to make food puzzles for your cat. Search the Internet for specific ideas. Forcing a kitten to fight with food will also tire him out. This is especially helpful when you are approaching sleep.

Make amazing sounds to make your cat stop. 

If your kitty is very excited or is playfully attacking you, you should coax him to stop and consider making a sudden noise to startle your kitty. The point of making noise is not to scare the kitten, but to get her to pause for a moment, long enough to re-evaluate the situation.

Stop playing with the kitten if he gets too rough. 

Stop paying attention to your cat if he starts being rude while he’s playing or playing alone. Do not encourage this behavior by continuing to focus on the kitten. On the contrary, ignoring your kitty sends her a signal that her behavior is inappropriate and that you will ignore her.

How to calm a kitten – Take kittens in pairs. 

A kitten’s best playmate is another kitten. Kittens together, especially from the same litter, can grow and develop close bonds with each other. Being kittens, they played with each other and got tired of each other. They also let each other know when certain actions are inappropriate.

Work with nervous kittens

Provide the cat with a large cat tree or cat apartment. As a general rule, cats like to be at a height from which they can see everything that is happening. This is one of the reasons why cats like to climb on high shelves or refrigerators. Provide kitty with a large cat tree or cat apartment so he can go somewhere and get comfortable. Having such a place can be especially helpful when something terrible happens. For example, your kitty may prefer to sit in a cat tree while you vacuum or watch a movie at full volume.

Give your cat a place to hide. 

While you don’t want to have hiding places in your home that your kitten can get trapped in, it’s a good idea to give your kitten a safe place to hide if he gets nervous or scared. A good option would be a cat tree or a cat tent with a locker. Since you probably already know that cats love boxes, you can also have one or more boxes for your kitty to hide in. It’s also a good idea to have several of these hiding places for your cat. You may want to place one in each main room where your cat hangs out.

Make your house quiet. 

A nervous kitty is likely to be afraid of everything. The best thing you can do with a nervous kitty is to remove as many of the scary elements as possible. This includes making the house or room as quiet as possible and introducing sound slowly over time. Scary sounds can include televisions, radios, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, dishwashers, fans. If your kitty is in your room, try turning on a quiet voice or soft radio in that room so kitty gets used to the noise.

How to calm a kitten – Try herbal remedies to calm your cat. 

There are several herbal remedies made specifically for cats that can help calm cats and reduce anxiety. Depending on the type of product, you can put it in the kitty’s water or in the ears. Some cats are also comforted by the scent of lavender or honeysuckle. Using lavender or honeysuckle essential oils or an essential oil spray can help your cat calm down.Do not spray essential oils or sprays directly on kittens. Instead, spray it on your bedding, toys. Use cat pheromones to reduce anxiety in kittens. Feline pheromones calm cats and reduce anxiety. Artificial versions of these pheromones are available as sprays and plugs that can be placed throughout the house to help keep cats and kittens calm. These pheromones are similar to the ones cats release when they rub their jaws when they’re happy or when they’re in front of something.
