Checklist for new cat parents
Step 1: Make meals delicious & accessible
Wet food is a popular option—especially for kittens—because it’s known for having plentiful nutrients. Consider feeding a mixture of wet and dry food.
Flavorful treats are a great reward for good behavior, or just another fun way to show your love. Try out a few different flavors to see which ones your cat loves.
Make sure you get a set of bowls that match your style. Smaller, easy-to-reach bowls are best.
Step 2: Welcome your cat to his new environment
Cats are natural climbers, and towers are a great way to help them explore that affinity.
Set off a small section of your space for your cat to call his or her own. A small structure is an easy way to designate it.
Cats need to scratch. A scratcher is the best way to divert attention away from your furniture.
Step 3: House train your cat right away
This is a no-brainer. Keep a scooper near your litter box so clean-up is quick and easy.
A great litter will clump easily, not leave much dust, and not to stick to your cat (so he or she doesn’t track it around).
Cats are known for being independent and great at caring for themselves, but when accidents happen, you’ll want an odor neutralizer ASAP.
