Decoding Your Cat: Kitten Season


Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Amy Pike says if there’s a time of year to get a kitten – this is it – often called “kitten season.”

At first, it’s most important to keep the new kitty away from any other cats in the home for health and behavior reason, which Dr. Pike explains, and how long to sequester the new kitty for.

We chat about why socializing kittens is so incredibly important and she offers tips about how to go about this. Happy kitten vet visits and kitten socialization classes are a good idea. 

There’s much more information in the book Decoding Your Cat, authored by Pike and her colleague members of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.
