Essential Cat Supplies
So, you've decided to adopt a cat. You need to make sure your home has got all the essentials your new feline friend will need.
A Cat Carrier
You need a carrier to transport your cat safely. The carrier is designed for all sorts of commutes, including when you take your cat to the vet for a regular checkup. In other words, you want something sturdy but light, easy to handle and clean. We recommend a top-loading carrier where you can open the roof to get your cat in and out.
You can also consider a soft carrier, such as a rucksack, for different commuting styles, such as taking your cat on a bus journey in town.
There's no secret about it: Your cat will need a place to go and do their business. If you have more than one cat, we suggest having one litter tray per cat plus an extra one.
Food and Water Bowls
Cats can be picky drinkers. They are used to drinking from running water in the wild, so many domesticated cats prefer a water fountain. This can be an excellent investment to ensure your kitty drinks enough water.
You should have a food bowl per cat in your home. Ideally, you want to separate the water from the food bowls. Pet feeders and sealed bowls are a great choice if your cat eats at a specific time of day.
Even inside cats should wear a pet collar with an ID tag for their safety, as it can help with identification if they somehow escape. Remember that buying a collar doesn't replace a microchip!
Will your cat prefer dry food or wet food? If you are unsure, you could try a combination of both and let your cat decide.
We have a vast selection of food specifically designed with cat health in mind, including digestive care, kitten, urinary care, senior cat, etc.
If you have an automatic feeder, you want to use dry food.
We also recommend adding some yummy cat treats to your purchase. Treats can be fantastic for training and playing with your cat.
Types of Litter
What does the perfect litter tray look like? It depends entirely on your cat. A covered tray is a preferred option to provide your cat privacy in an open space. However, remember that for your cat's comfort, the box should be at least 1.5 times bigger than your pet. Larger breeds will find open top trays more comfortable.
You'll find different types of cat litter products. In the wild, felines prefer sandy and unscented environments. So, if you wish to introduce scented litter, it's best to do it gradually. Crystal litter is popular as it can limit bad odours if you can't empty the litter tray immediately. Pellet litters are more environmentally friendly. You can also find specialist products to remove cat urine scents in the event of accidents!
Types of Toys
Cats love high places, scratching, and hunting. Therefore, when it comes to toys, you want to combine the following:
