Kids naturally love kittens—and kittens love kids when the animals are given good care. This beautifully illustrated book was written for kids who have just received a kitten or who plan to get one soon. Sarah Whitehead explains how a kitten's natural instincts come to the fore in displays of feline inquisitiveness and playfulness. The text and captioned photos show games that kids and kittens can play together. There are also suggestions for toys, as well as cautions about playing rough games that might lead the animal into troublesome habits as it grows. Just as important are instructions on correct kitten handling, feeding, and general care. Kittens are more difficult to train than dogs, but kids will find ideas for motivating their pet, and even teaching it to do tricks. Here's good advice for children—and supervising parents—who want to train their kitten properly. Photos on virtually every page. Suitable for ages 9-12, or 4-8 with close parental guidance.
