The time has come for you to prepare for your future fur baby! Many people ask me questions about what their kitten is eating, litter they are used to, toys, brushes, etc. So I created this page to help answer all those questions!
I've listed below some of the products I use and recommend to keep your new baby happy and comfortable!
I've also created an easy Amazon List for your shopping convenience! You can find it here: https://www.amazon.com/shop/nwcoonies
My Trupanion Rep, Heather, put together this informative video on bringing home your new kitten. Please watch it for helpful tips!
It is very important that you keep your kitten on the same food he/she is used to eating! A sudden change of diet can cause upset stomach and diarrhhea! Your new kitten will come with a sample bag of food (unless your kitten is flying - there is no room to send the kitten kit this way). You will also get an email sent to you with a recommendation of where to buy their food along with a 20% discount for it!
If you would like to change their food, please intergrade the new food slowly over time and not abruptly. Using a probiotic with their new food will help with the transition. I leave dry out as a free feed and feed wet twice a day (Morning and night). I feed all flavors listed.
How much wet food should you feed your kitten?
I would offer them as much as they want to eat in one sitting. When they act uninterested, you will know they are full. Put it in the fridge for later. With each meal, you can get a better gage of how much your kitten will eat each sitting. You cannot overfeed a kitten, so feel free to feed them as often as they'd like to eat! They're growing and hungry!
***Do NOT free feed wet food, it will go bad and cause food poisoning! Wet food must be refrigerated after being opened.
I leave dry food out as a free feed and feed wet food at least twice a day (morning and night).
I will send an email with a 20% coupon for Royal Canin Kitten Dry food, so watch your email!

Tired of scooping litter? These automatic litter boxes are awesome. You literally just change the bag out when your phone tells you its full!
Use my link to get $25 off yours!!
This is the litter I use in my robots, and in some of my scooping boxes for the smaller kittens. I've used several clumping litters, and I keep going back to this one. Plus, it smells nice!
I like these mats for reducing litter tracked out of the boxes/robots. They are also great for under food/water bowls too since they absorb water!
Here is the link to this mat:
Cats like to climb and be up high! I have all different sizes and styles of cat towers. I would definitely recommend getting some sort of tower for your new baby! They love to lounge and sleep up high as well!
TOYS! Kittens love toys! I have so many different types of toys, from interactive toys, to scratching toys with movable balls, to springs, to wands! They love to bat things around and chase things!
You can find a list of Toys, Tunnels, and Towers on my Amazon List:
Kittens love to run through and play in tunnels! I have several of different sizes and shapes! Can't go wrong with a tunnel for your kitten!
These will help keep hair combed out to prevent matting fur and reduce the amount of shedding.
These combs have sharp blades on the inside to cut thru fur and remove mats.
You can find these brushes on my Amazon Account:
These are great for getting cat hair off furniture and blankets.
