After bringing your new kittens home, it’s only natural for them to be a bit jumpy and more anxious than usual. They don’t know the new place and they are still trying to see if it’s a safe space.
If you’ve noticed that your kittens are acting standoffish, it may be time to pick up a few items at the local pet store. The following items may not help them warm up to their new home right away, but they should at least help them relax more.
Toys for Kittens
Your confused kittens could probably use a bit of a distraction from everything that’s happening and what better way to do that than to engage in some playtime.
Bust out your kittens’ favorite toys or pick up some new ones at the store if you have some money to spare. A ball of yarn or a toy mouse can probably provide plenty of entertainment for your cat.
For those who want something a bit more special, Preventive Vet suggests getting the Tower of Tracks toy. Your kittens should be sufficiently distracted as they become fixated on that toy.
Do you want to be more direct with your approach to helping your pet relax? In that case, you may want to consider getting some calming aids.
Calming aids for cats come in the form of pheromone sprays, supplements, and even calming collars. To make the search for those calming aids easier, you can check out this article from The Spruce Pets.
When all else fails, there is one foolproof way to calm your kittens and that is to offer some treats. Get something special on the way home or cook up a nice piece of fish if you have the time.
Try to eat at the same time with your cats as well so that they can feel even more relaxed.
