Bringing Home A Cat

Tips to Make Kitty Feel Welcome

 

Adopting a cuddly and fluffy kitten or an adult cat can bring joy and companionship to your family. But just like bringing home a baby, you need to be prepared. I have some great tips for helping your kitty adjust to its new home, and help you keep him happy and safe. And, learn how to help save millions of homeless cats one jug of litter at a time!

Essentials

  • Carrier or Crate

Be sure to take a carrier or crate with your when you go to pick-up your cat. Place a soft and cozy blanket inside for kitty to snuggle into. Not only will it provide a sense of security, it is also the best and safest way for your cat to travel in a car.

  • Appropriate Food

It is important to feed your cat a healthy and nutritious diet that is appropriate for its age. Kittens have different nutritional needs than fully grown cats or older mature cats. Be sure to ask your veterinarian for a recommendation if you have questions.

  • Litter Box and Litter

Have a litter box ready to go for your new feline friend. They will thank you. Cat’s like to use a litter box. If you are bringing home a very young kitten, good news, litter training will be easy! Kittens that are 10 to 12 weeks old may come to their new home already trained. If you buy Cat’s Pride® Fresh and Light® litter in the GREEN JUG, one pound of litter will be donated to a shelter for those kitties less fortunate than yours.

  • Other Necessities

Some other items you will want to have for your cat or kitten are a Scratching Post, Food and Water Dishes, Grooming Tools, Collar and Tag, Safe Toys, a Bed.

  • Visit the Veterinarian

Take your cat or kitten to see the veterinarian within the first week of bringing home a cat. At that visit, your kitty will get a wellness check, any shots or tests they may need, and you can have them microchipped as well.

Tips for Helping Kitty

  • Kittens

Kittens are sometimes adopted as early as six weeks old. This is a little early and can be hard on the kitten. Ten to twelve weeks old makes for a much easier transition. Kittens may be lonely – missing their mom and siblings. The will also be confused and maybe scared. Soothe your kitten by holding it gently, keeping it warm, providing pets, and playing with it. Take cues from your cat as to what it may want or need, or how much to provide.

  • Adopt Two Cats

Bring two kitties home is a win-win for both you and the cats. Your cats won’t be lonely, they’ll have a feline buddy to cuddle and play with. This will not only be easier on you, but it is twice the entertainment watching the cats frolic and play together. Jinx and Josie are brother and sister from the same litter. They are definitely a bonded pair. They love each other so much, take care of each other, snuggle and play — super cute.
