Preparing For A New Cat

Posted February 23rd, 2011 by gemainz

Getting a new cat or kitten can be a really exciting time – it’s always great having something cute and furry to love. You need to make sure you get all the products and supplies necessary for your new cat to make them feel really welcome and at home. Probably the most important thing you need to buy for them is cat food. You should buy the best quality cat food you can afford, as often the cheaper produce contains chemicals that are harmful to cats.

You also need to buy all of the relevant accessories to go with all the food your cat is likely to eat. Buying them separate dishes and bowls for their food and water will help to keep things hygienic, and it can often be a good idea to buy a few different bowls as that way you’ll always have one handy. Separate forks or other cutlery to serve their food is also a good idea as this will eliminate the risk of their food contaminating yours.

It’s also really important that you have a nice place for your cat to sleep. Some people are happy for their cat to share their bed, but it’s always useful to have somewhere separate for them to sleep as they like to have a space that’s just for them. Get them a soft basket and personalize it with a blanket so they’ll be warm and comfortable when they’re sleeping. Having a designated space to sleep will make them more disciplined.

It’s also worth getting hold of a litter tray for your cat to use, as well as everything that goes with it. While most people will intend for their cat to go outside to use the bathroom, it’s a good idea to have a litter tray available for them while they’re getting used to the area. It’ll also help make them realize that your house is home. It’s also important to keep small kittens inside for the first few months, so a litter tray is important for them.

Finally, to make your cat feel really welcome in his or her new home, you could get them some toys and other accessories to keep them interested and give them something to do if they ever get left home alone. For example, you could get them some catnip toys and hide them around the house for them to find. You could also get your new cat a scratching pole as this can help to deter them from taking out their scratching impulses on you or your furniture.
