Error Free Kitten Raising Tips
by Rolan Tripp, DVM and Susan Tripp, MS

Just minutes a day of learning gives you the best relationship possible with your cat!

Getting Started - No physical punishment

No spanking, yelling, or chasing!

It's just too risky to spank or, in any way, physically punish your kitten. You are more likely to have the lesson backfire. A feisty kitten may become more aggressive. A fearful kitten may decide to avoid you altogether. Don't jeopardize a close, loving relationship with your kitten. Do NOT use physical punishment with your kitten.

Instead, provide everything good and nothing bad. If you see the kitten doing something wrong, ask yourself, what would be right? Then show your kitten how to do that! 

Physical punishment teaches your kitten to avoid you and not trust you. Instead, teach your kitten to express natural behaviors in acceptable ways and places. Teach your kitten how to thrive as a feline in a puzzling human household.
