This is a list of the products and items that we use with all of our cats and in our home. Feel free to continue the use of these items that your kitten is used to, in our home, or use it as a baseline of the supplies that you will need for the maintenance of your kitten/cat.
Most of our Ragdolls eat a combination of dry & wet food. Dry food is free-fed, meaning bowls are always full of dry food and available for our cats' convenience to eat or nibble at throughout the day. Wet food is fed 2-3x per day. Please check with me on which food your kitten eats BEFORE buying it.
TREATS / CATNIP
These are the most favorite cat treats among our cats!
We give a variety of supplements to our cats to maintain their health & digestion. Most can be mixed in their wet food.
Our kittens use a combination of sWheat Scoop litter mixed with Frisco Grass litter, and our adults use the Fresh Step Crystal litter. We also throw away cat poop in the Litter Champ poop bin, and we have a Coway Airmega air purifier next to our litterboxes which does an amazing job keeping the room smelling like nothing. A handheld vacuum will come in handy when you have to quickly vacuum up any tracking litter, and the litter mats will help decrease the amount of tracking litter. Good litterbox disinfectants are important to for deodorizing and quick wipe downs to keep boxes clean.
We groom our young kittens with plain regular dawn soap that is diluted in our hands before washing them. As they get older, we use the following grooming products on our older kittens + adults. Honest Baby Wipes come in handy to clean eye boogies, the eyebrow razors are the safest razors we can find to trim rump hair (aka "sanitary trim") without having to take a pair or sharp scissors to their back end, and the butter combs are the best to comb their fur.
Some of the furniture that we have here in our home, our favorites, and in which our cats & kittens enjoy. We prefer and favor wood style cat trees with removable pads for their aesthetic design and so the tree can be easily cleaned (wiped down + pads thrown in the washer routinely -- as opposed to cheap faux fur trees that show wear and tear and build up of layers of cat hair).
Some of the toys that we have here in our home, our favorites, and in which our cats & kittens enjoy.
These are other important items that we use: elevated feeders, water fountains, a good brush set to deep clean the water fountain and get into all the nooks and crannies, silicone mats for feeders and water fountains to protect your floors, BPA free cereal bins to store dry food for easy storage/access/pouring, cat canned food lids to preserve opened cans, and a variety of cat carriers (durable hard shell 24" w/ top opener is preferred for stability and easy to clean; soft carriers such as the Veehoo in 24" size is durable, roomy, and comfortable for the kittens/cats) (note: a 19" carrier will fit a kitten just fine, but they don't stay kittens forever, and if you want a carrier they can grow into, get the 24" size).
