Having a Friend Watch a New Kitten?

I'm getting a kitten soon and after about 3 weeks I'm going to have to leave it at my friend's place. She has her own cat, so she has experience. But I'm scared this might be bad for my kitten at such a young age. She will only be about 3 months old. Is it OK to leave her at my friends place?

This is a tricky one...I say that because (with a dog) I have had good and bad experiences with friends taking care of my babies.

The bad case that my "friend" let my puppy run loose in a fenced cemetery when I specifically said she can never be off leash as she was so small she could crawl under fences. Luckily someone grabbed her before she got to the street (yep, she got under the fence) and she was OK. Needless to say, that ended that friendship FAST. I still cry when I think about it.

I strongly recommend that you and your friend need to agree on EXACTLY how your baby will be cared for and even consider putting it in writing.

My concern for your situation is that if she has a resident cat, you may not want your baby and her baby to interact. I say that because cats can be very territorial and you don't want the resident cat to hurt your kitty.

If in the planning phases, your friend does not respect your wishes for how your baby should be cared for, then you may want to consider another option.

Talk to your vet or local cat rescue and see if they can recommend a reputable cat sitter.

I think so. Leave a blanket with your scent to comfort her.

I think you should do a trial period BEFORE you leave your kitten.

S actually it will prolly be good for the kitten. Cats unlike dogs learn and learn fast from even just once watching another cat do.
