Sometimes there is a animal run in our living room. This is only there so that the kittens will go to the catlittre faster, because of course you would like a clean kitten, wouldn’t you? They are still small and compared to their size, our living room is big. So they find their way back to the litter box faster. This animal run is only closed when no one is home or when we are sleeping. When we are home, we regularly put the kittens in their catlittre from the time they start eating on their own.
In the meantime, our daughter is well aware that not every kitten can live here. We don’t teach her a throwaway mentality, that’s for sure. We tell her right away that they will leave when they are big enough. Towards the move, she also knows through the kitten visit, who is going to move. We don’t let kittens move when she is at school because not being able to say goodbye does bring problems for her. After the move, she enjoys all the pictures we get.
