a blow dryer was used for drying and he/she is also use to the
sounds of the vacuum cleaner.
This kitten should be taken to your vet within three
days of purchase. Under no circumstances should this kitten be introduced to
other pets/children before the scheduled health check with your veterinarian.
When you are satisfied this kitten is in good health, proceed with a slow

one room and with supervision shown into other rooms that you are going to
allow them into after they are comfortable with the first room. They should be

fearful, stressed animal. A spray bottle of water is a good deterrent as well

a puppy! Play gently with this kitten otherwise you will be teaching them to
scratch and bite.

would expect, then these are good indicators that a problem is present.
ISOLATE IMMEDIATELY and contact your vet.
