Please leave food and water available at all times. Kittens are use to eating throughout the day and night.
We feed both canned food and dry kibble.
The litters we use are Costco Brand or Special Kitty from Walmart unscented clumping litter. Please do not change litter brand when bringing your new kitten home as this will only confuse your new kitten and may result in unwanted behavior.
Kittens are using cardboard and a sisal post for scratching. We provide multiple scratcher's and different textures such as sisal and cardboard to encourage positive scratching so kittens do not look to the furniture. To ensure this continued positive behavior please provide cardboard and a sisal post/trees for your kitten to scratch.
Please note that a cat tree that is totally carpeted will not provide the proper stimulation the kitten needs to satisfy the need to scratch (not to mention you are teaching it to scratch carpet) so it must have a sisal rope post/tree. Kitten nails have been routinely cut once a week or so and will need to have this routine continue to ensure nail health.
The kitten has been trained to use an open litter box and is fully trained. Kittens are very smart and can be trained to use a covered litter box if desired.
Russian blue cats/kittens are very clean and do not like to have a dirty litter box. It is advisable that you scoop the box twice a day.
Kittens have been fully dewormed and have tested negative for parasites and had their first vaccine but will need follow up treatment with further vaccinations and possible deworming as per veterinary advice to keep them healthy.
When you bring your new kitten home it is best to confine them to a room with their belongings (litter box, toys, food, water, scratch post/tree etc..for a couple of days until they get use to the new surroundings and to keep them safe at first when you cannot be home.( This only applies if you live in a large home)
If you have another pet this is a must until you introduce the new family member properly to the existing pet.
A kitten collar with a bell is recommended so that you may know where your kitten is at all times as they are very good at hiding under or behind furniture.
If you have plants/flowers in your home please ensure that they are not poisonous to your new kitten/cat as they may eat the plants and flowers in the home if available to them.
A list of poisonous plants and flowers are listed online.
Please make sure all small wires are tucked away or covered as kittens will chew wires.
