How to Prepare for a New Kitten/Cat
Discuss the responsibility of owning and bringing home a new kitten/cat with all family members, as well as what lifestyle changes may need to happen.
Purchase a litter box and litter so that you can teach your cat to use it right away. Keep the litter box in the same place, so as not to confuse the kitten/cat.
Purchase a few cat toys and a scratching post for your new cat’s entertainment. Purchasing these things and positively reinforcing their use can help keep your new friend from tearing at furniture.
Purchase food and water bowls for your new cat.
Get a collar for your new cat.
Find a veterinarian to care for the health and wellbeing of your new cat.
