Litter – Worlds Best- Its clumping and made with corn, not perfumey and im sure cats hate perfume litter.
Foods – dont use grocery store brands, its loaded with fillers. I use Weruva wet packettes(cats in the kitchen), and for dry I use Orijen cat/kitten. Dont over do the fish products, to much is not good.
High litter box – covered boxes hold in odors. I use the” NVR miss” litter box, high sides, easy access.
Water – Fresh bottled water, yes Im a freak like that. I even have a water fountain for my cats.
Brushing everyother day helps eliminate hair balls.
Bathing- Start them early and get them used to baths. My cats behave and sit in the bathing area better than my dog does. towel dry – summer is the best time to get started and always make sure you rinse them well. you can never rinse to much.
My cats get a bath at least twice a year.
nail clipping – read about it and clip often esp when young, otherwise they wont tolerate it later in life.
Never let them outside – the lifespan of an outdoor cat is wayyyy less than an indoor cat.
I kept my cats in the “cat room” so they learned where everything was from the get go, after they were familarized with their surroundings in that room and where their box was I never had any problems and have had full run of the house day and night.
Any questions PM me.
Also – lots of toys, and dont forget scratching posts/scratching boards – there is a big variety out there.
Keep any kind of threads/yarns away, they are dangerous if ingested.
If possible, purchase a cat tree, cats love being up high. Most have scratchers built in and play areas cubicles. But expensive.
Dont over do snacks for cats, they make them fat, and who wants a fatcat? They wont miss what they never had.
When I purchased my cats I got TWO at the same time, never regretted it, so much fun and hilarious to watch them both.
