I need to know about kittens because I’m getting one this weekend. I would be grateful if you could tell me where to get one (i live in Knightswood, Glasgow), how to care for them, the best food and any other information you have. Please help.

You should do some research before you just go out and get one cause you want a kitty…..at least to be fair to the poor cat..
Feed it kitten food. If you go to a pet store, look at the more expensive stuff (liek Science Diet) and read the bag. It’ll tell you how much you’re supposed to feed it per day. Then look at a cheap bag….it’ll say at least twice as much cause of fillers and crap they put in it, like corn (corn doesn’t digest).
Get a litterbox. Litterbox liners are very handy too. And a scoop and litter, of course. I like the kind in the orange box (can’t remember the name). The one that says it eliminates both urine and feces odours.
Get toys! Cat’s can see reds best and blues and greens the least, I believe. Also….a scratching post. My mom just bought my kittin one of those cardboard things…it’s in the shape of a fish and he friggin loves the thing! And doesn’t claw my chairs anymore.
ALWAYS have fresh water out for it. Cats need tons of fresh water. No milk. Once they’re done weening, milk is actually bad for cats.
This site is awesome. It even shows you how a cat sees 🙂
