At this time of the year, many parents choose to expand their families with a furry friend. Why not look into getting a kitten this holiday season? Kittens are a great way to encourage compassion and responsibility in your children, as well as add just a little extra joy to your home.
Why a Kitten?
At the end of a long year, many children are feeling restless. Stay-at-home orders mean that kids in 2020 spend most if not all of their time indoors. For the developing mind, this can be boring and quite lonely. Kittens deal with the same feelings. Unlike older cats, rescued kittens may not be quite used to the indoor lifestyle.
Of course, young kittens are not always the best option for children. Young kittens are fragile and more likely to bite, as they are both teething and still learning their boundaries. In a home with young children, it is best to go with an older kitten. Older kittens have the same energy as younger kittens, with more of the discipline. They are larger, meaning that they are less likely to get lost, stuck, or injured.
Kittens at Claws N Paws
At Claws N Paws, we are currently overflowing with adorable kittens. We currently have two litters: two eight-month-old boys and three six-month-old girls. The boys were found alone outside and brought to Claws N Paws. At their age, they are nervous being in the shop but quickly warm up in a home. They spent months in a foster home with other cats, dogs, rabbits, and children. Because they are bonded, we would love to see these two brothers go to the same home! The girls were rescued out from under a car by some of our foster parents. Despite a difficult past, these three kittens are extremely loving! After their brother was adopted, they are all anxious to find their own forever homes.
If you are looking to adopt for Christmas, you are in luck! We will be open right up until Christmas, and owner Christi is willing to bring kittens to you even on Christmas morning. This will ensure that children will not see or hear their new furry friend before Christmas day. When you’re at Claws N Paws, give your availability and we will work to your schedule.
Claws N Paws Day Spa and Cat Boarding is located in Fountain Valley, California. To schedule a meeting with a kitten (or two), call us today at 714-962-1005. We can’t wait to see you!
