Where to start the education of your new pet?
If you took an animal from the streets and not received a gift or "adopted" from a shelter, be prepared for the fact that born to freedom, the kitten will not behave as born from a cat in the home. The fact that their freedom-lovinge Mama cat breed — since the childhood accustom the kittens to be afraid of people, and to overcome this fear, the little animal will need some time. It will behave aggressively: to hiss, to meow loudly and may try to bite you, so it is best to patiently teach a cat to human contact. Let the first person in his new life will be the one who is responsible for feeding and care, then the adaptation period will be faster.
Remember that all cats are non-pedigree — after all predators, so whenever your pet will feel you are in danger (and after life on the street, the danger can seem like anything), he will use his strong teeth and claws. Therefore, at initial contact with the "savage" protect yourself by wearing gloves and clothing with long sleeves. Usually cats and kittens taken off the streets, in adult life are rarely friendly and willing going to contact everyone's favorite, but they are quite able to strike up a strong friendship with that family member, that they are particularly trusted.

If your pet owner of long hair, then it should be brushed at least once a day, and for shorthaired cats with fur of medium length will be sufficient combing once a week. Also, don't forget to clip the nails. This can be done by yourself or in a veterinary clinic. You will never regret that I took house let them breed, but gentle and responsive pet.
