Kitten Care Information.
 
I always hand out kitten care pack with all my kittens, so you will find more information in the pack when you collect your kitten. However here i included suggestions on what to buy for your new arrival.



My Recomendations

Kitten Meat
They are currently only having chicken or fish as a treat, sometimes tuna, salmon or pilcards. I do give them kitten meat at night.

Kitten Munchies
Dry food, they are currently having Royal Canin baby cat food or Royal Canin Kitten 36, which is out all the time.

Food Bowls
I would recommend that you have at least 4 bowls as this makes it more convenient for you by not having to clean bowls immediately to be able to have a clean bowl at each meal.

Water Bowl
I do not feed my cats milk once they have been weaned as cow’s milk can cause diarrhoea and milk is not a necessary part of their diet and just adds unnecessary calories and costs.

Cat Litter
I use wood pellet litter, i find it better to clean up and nice for the cats. You may find that you will need to mix the litter that they are use to with the new style to get them used to any change you may want.

Cat Litter Tray
A normal litter tray somewhere private is sufficient. The covered ones are nice but I find that the kittens sometimes have trouble using them. If you have more than one cat, you may need more than one tray.

Cat Bed
I have found that the igloo beds to be very popular amongst my cats and they are not too expensive, although on the scracting post seems to be the most popular sleeping place.

Scratching Posts
Ideally a fairly sturdy upright style. This is essential to stop your kitten scratching the furniture and any cat with Siamese or Snowshoe traits love to scratch. The bigger the better. Remember your kitten won’t be a kitten forever.

Grooming Equipment
Short hair, you can get chamois style grooming gloves which generally will be enough for any Siamese/Oriental cat.Simply just the oils from your hands will bring out the gloss on your cat. My snowshoes love the shreeder brushes which removes any loose hairs.

Toys
Cats and kittens love to play and if you only have one cat, it is even more important to have toys for them to play with and the opportunity to interact with you in a fun way. Things like toy mice and string on a stick to chase. My cats have always preffered cardboard boxes and screwed up pieces of paper.

Cat Carrier
Ideally a sturdy top opening style for easy access. Remember that your cat will grow and depending on the breed may grow quite big especially if you have a male. You will need this when you collect your kitten.
