Remember to feed your kitten twice a day – once with dry food and once with wet food.
To ensure the best nutrition for your kitten, we recommend starting with either Royal Canin kitten food or Hills kitten food.
Additionally, we suggest choosing wet food from the same brand. Make sure to add probiotics to wet food during the first week.
During your appointment, we will provide you with an enzyme powder. Don’t forget to add the powder and probiotics to the wet food for the first 7-10 days. Mix well powder ( enzymes) to allow enzymes to blend with the food. After mixing leave at room temperature for at least 10 -15 min before feeding.
Probiotics and enzymes can help safeguard the kitten’s digestive system and reduce the risk of any digestive problems arising from the transition to a new food and adjustment period.
After 2 weeks, you can gradually introduce premium dry food brands such as Origen, Acana, or Tiki Cat. Start by mixing these brands with the Hills or Royal Canin dry food in a half-and-half ratio.
Over time, you can slowly transition your kitten to solely eating one of the premium brand dry and wet foods or raw meat. This will ensure they receive the highest quality nutrition.
We strongly encourage you to explore the inclusion of raw meat in your cat’s diet. Raw meat offers numerous health benefits to felines. I recommend watching a video by the renowned cat expert, Jackson Galaxy, as it can provide valuable insights into the advantages of incorporating raw meat into your cat’s diet.
The most straightforward approach is to prepare diced chicken meat, gizzards, and chicken thighs ( or any other type of raw meat that is good for cats) in small portions, as illustrated in the image. You can pre-assemble a month’s worth of supplies in advance. It’s crucial to freeze the meat for more than 10 days to ensure the elimination of all viruses and parasites. Following that, simply thaw a packet when it’s time for dinner.
We do not advise exclusively feeding your cat raw meat, as this can lead to bone-related issues. If you still opt for transitioning your cat to a raw meat diet, remember to include specialized vitamin supplements for such diets.
We recommend the following feeding regimen: Dry food once a day + Raw meat or Wet Food once a day. Typically, we suggest alternating between raw meat and wet food, whichever is more convenient for you.
HOW TO CHOOSE?
Which type of litter box is suitable for your cat? With a cover or without? High sides or low? The choice depends on your kitten’s breed. If you have the largest domestic cat breed, such as the Maine Coon, your cat will require a litter box with very high walls and ample space. For owners of Munchkins or medium-sized breeds like the British or Scottish, a standard litter box with medium-height walls should work well. It’s worth noting that kittens often prefer uncovered litter boxes as they may not be accustomed to enclosed ones.
As for the type of litter, we recommend starting with straightforward options and avoiding experimentation initially. Allow your kitten to acclimate to their new home, and only consider changing the litter type after two weeks.Start with Wood or clumping cat litter.
Oko Cat is an excellent wood-based cat litter with elongated pellets, making it easy to maintain cleanliness. Starting from the second week, you have the option to purchase Tofu cat litter on Amazon, which has proven to be a game-changer for many of our cat owners. It`s low-tracking cat litter, which makes it a top choice for cat litter.One of the newest cat litter that is good for large breeds- is Purina Breeze.
Once your kitten arrives, you may find it necessary to give them a bath, especially if they belong to a long-haired breed. Long-haired kittens can become soiled during transportation and may benefit from a proper cleaning routine. All kittens require some level of fur care, but long-haired cats, in particular, demand extra attention to prevent their fur from tangling and forming mats.
In the long term, all cats, regardless of hair length, require regular brushing to minimize shedding throughout your home.
For long-haired cats, it’s essential to use specific tools like longhair combs. These combs may have teeth of varying lengths or natural bristle brushes designed to maintain the coat’s appearance and remove loose hairs. Deshedding tools and slicker brushes are not suitable for long-haired breeds as they can irritate the skin, pull out fine hairs, cause discomfort, and damage the hair structure.
Shorthair cats have a different coat type, characterized by a dense and loose topcoat with a well-developed undercoat of the same length as the outer hair. To care for shorthair breeds, you should use a metal comb with medium-frequency teeth for the initial grooming stage. For the second stage, a deshedding tool can be used to manage the undercoat and eliminate excess hair. Finally, finish the grooming process with a massaging brush, which provides a gentle massage for the cat’s body and smooths the coat.
Our kittens come equipped with a microchip, a small device that does not contain any information. To ensure that you can reunite with your kitten if you ever get separated, it’s essential to register the microchip along with your contact details in a dedicated database. You can locate the 15-digit number of your kitten’s microchip in their health certificate or passport.
By enrolling your pet’s information on FreePetChipRegistry.com, a trusted and no-cost animal identification database, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your pet’s home contact information is easily accessible. This service remains completely free throughout your pet’s lifetime and is available to anyone, regardless of the microchip brand they use. There are no registration or maintenance fees, and updating your contact information is also free of charge.
The microchip contains a unique ID number that links to your contact information, securely stored in the microchip company’s database.
