Let’s just start with preparing your home for the arrival of your dream Pixie Bob.
Kittens will continuously teeth until they are about 6-7 months old. While teething, they tend to seek relief by chewing on things – just like a human baby would. Anything and everything goes. Cables – check! Toilet paper rolls – check! Throw rug fringe – check!
Now, it’s not a big deal if the kitten shreds and eats toilet paper. But any kind of strings or worse – electrical cables can be quite dangerous.
Do yourself the favor and buy simple cord covers and temporarily stash anything that has strings on it or could be dissolved into strings.
Here is an inexpensive, easy to use cord protector that will save the kitten from harm and prevent you having to replace cords – en masse.
