7 wk old kitten adopted us...any advice?

Our family of 5 has never had a pet before, but when the then 6 wk old kitten wouldn't leave our back door, we took a week and decided to keep her inside. Today is her first day inside after her routine trip to the vet. She was treated for ear mites and other vaccines were given. I have a husband and 3 boys- a 4.5 yr old and 2 yr old twins. Taking all that into consideration, give me some kitty wisdom please! I know she is 7 weeks old becuase we took her to the vet and that's what he said...

First and foremost, I want to acknowledge your kindness for taking in the little kitten. It is a very huge task but at the end, the reward far outweigh the hard work.

Keep her indoors to keep her safe. Have her spayed as soon as she is old enough. Teach your kids to be gentle with her so she won't have to defend herself by scratching or biting which freaks parents out (they always blame it on the cat, not paying attention to how the kids mistreat the animal...

Litter box, kitten food and some little toys for her to play with. Make sure you get her fixed once she turns the right age (I believe its 8 weeks but I am not sure). She obviously has taken to you guys but don't let the kids overwhelm her. They will want to play with her but sometimes cats just want to be left... More

I would keep the kitten in a small, warm, quiet room away from the kids (maybe a spare bathroom or a closet... More

Ha. how cute! You think seven weeks is bad. I had a 3 year old cat adopt us. Get some kitten food at a local pet store. You can handle him as much as you want if you are sure you are going to keep him as a pet. I would get his ear clipped so someone doesn't think he's a wild kitten... More
