New Pet Owner!

Considering I am only 17 years young, owning an animal seems as if it could be compared to being a new parent. I adopted two 5 week old female kittens, and I was filled with excitement and a sense of responsibility considering my mom made it very clear that the kittens were mine, as is the food and vet bills. Immediately I got my babies the proper development food and vaccinations. I never expected to look forward to paying for items other than clothes, but there is something about being a pet parent that almost excites me to bring them to vet because I know that I am doing the most I can for them as well as making sure that they receive the care they need. Working at a Veterinarian clinic I learned quickly how much TLC a cat really does need; my partner and I make sure we trim our kittens’ nails once every 2 weeks so that they get used to being in an uncomfortable situation for a short period of time and so they learn to behave when being handled by veterinarians/techs. I make sure that my kittens receive everything they need, regular vet visits regardless of the cost and lots of kisses and love.
