Getting Ready for the Big Day

About Your Kitten Experience:
Benefiting from the best start in life, our kittens are spoiled and treasured. They know that they are special and very much loved. So your kitten has been cuddled, tickled, softly spoken to, cooed over and totally adored. 

Your kitten has been introduced and grown up around children, dogs and other cats, experiencing household noises.

It will love you and enjoy exploring your home and get to know everyone within it.

Your KITTEN has eaten:
Royal canine - kitten Biscuits - Zooplus.com
Bozita, Feringa Chicken selection &  Felix kitten, they LOVE COSMA Salmon or Applaws fish - Zooplus.com
Raw & Fresh oven-baked, chicken and cooked fish, Tinned Tuna

As Adult CAT I use:
Royal Canine & RC Sensible

Cats need CAT food, due to the nutritional balance in them. I do not recommend a raw meat diet. (I’ve seen too many gum, bone and gut issues resulting from the poor nutritional content in a raw food diet.)

Feeding Times
Kitten has all times dry food available but eats wet food 4 times a day.
Times are 8am, noon, 4pm and 7pm & bedtime 9-10pm - wet kitten food.

Litter 
Kitten is used to chip-wood, Paper-based and common white granules litter like catisan.
They use open litter trays and if you have other cats, we suggest you get a new open tray to begin with as cats do not like sharing litter trays. They will often in protest and do their litter elsewhere in the house, on your bed or under your bed.

Flea & Wormer
Wormer: Your kitten has been wormed with Panacure 10% liquid at 2,5,8 weeks. I recommend worming every 3 months. You can buy Panacure 10% liquid , Panacure 22% 1.8gms online. We also use Cazitel tablets after 12weeks old.

Flea: Effipro flea spray every 2 weeks & the day before the pickup.
We recommend flea treatment every month during the ‘high’ flea season.

Home Care
Your kitten will sleep in baskets, on beds and sofas basically anywhere!

For the first few days give it time to familiarize its self in one room, which has its food, water and litter tray. Your kitten might need adjusting to its new home, so introduce it slowly to one room at a time over a couple of weeks. This ensures it knows how and where the litter tray is at all times. Again if you have other cats, we suggest you get a new open tray to begin with as cats do not like sharing litter trays. They will often in protest and do their litter elsewhere in the house, on your bed or under your bed.

If you have multiple rooms or floors. I would highly recommend several litter trays in different permanent positions. So to ensure the kitten knows where to go when it needs to.

Please remember kittens sleep for long times and frequently, then has mad half hours of play inter-dispersed between sleep and food.
