I have had my five week old kitten for three days. This is the first time I have ever owned a cat and I had some questions. His name is Fred and he is a black cat with white paws and bluish green eyes. A friends cat had him and she is a barn cat. All the kittens were different colors. What kind of cat would he be? A mixed breed? Also...he is on Purina Kitten chow and Friskies soft food for kittens. Are they good foods? His poops and pees are normal so far. He doesnt seem to drink much water and Im wondering if he doesnt know there is water in the bowl since he cant see it. I put some on my finger and let him lick it off and have him follow my finger to the bowl then he realizes its there but he seems to forget on his own. Also.. I have seen people post about deworming? What is this and when do I do it? I have only ever had dogs in the past and they took a pill. He doesn have a single flea on him which surprises me since he lived in a barn. I was thinking of making his vet appt. for next month since he is so little now. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I am in love with this little goober and want to make sure he gets the best care.
