The day your new kitten comes home to stay is bound to be memorable and, hopefully, fun for all involved. To make your pet feel right at home from the start, be sure to have these feline-friendly items on hand:

  • Sturdy carrier

  • High quality kitten food

  • Litter box, unscented cat litter, and scoop

  • Shallow food bowl and deep water bowl (neither should be made of plastic)

  • Sturdy scratching post or cardboard scratcher

  • Safe toys (without sewn-on bells or eyes that can be chewed off)

  • Brush/comb

  • Nail clipper
