Guide to the New Cat Shop
Whether you have a new kitty in the house or you're in need of new supplies for your already beloved feline, there's plenty in our New Cat Shop to keep your fur baby happy, healthy and having fun. You'll find great tips below on choosing supplies for any age cat, no matter how finicky your fluffy friend can be.
Use these tips to choose toys that'll keep your kitty happy and active.
- Safety: Kittens will play with just about anything that moves, safe or not. To maximize your kitten's safety, choose toys without long strings or beads that a little cat can chew off and swallow.
- Shiny: The shinier the toy, the more your cat will likely play with it, especially in a house that's well lit.
- Easy to carry: Kittens and cats like to catch and carry ""prey."" Choose small, lightweight and plush toys that they can carry in their mouths.
- Catnip-infused: Not every feline responds to catnip. They may not be genetically predisposed to the oil in catnip that drives kitties crazy. Try catnip-stuffed toys, but remember that catnip loses its oomph as it becomes stale.
- Lasers: Interact with your cat with an LED laser toy and watch your kitty try to catch the light. Pet laser pointers are safe even though they have cats bouncing off the walls.
Cat trees and scratchers
Here are tips on choosing the best trees and scratchers to help keep your kitty's muscles and claws in top shape.
- Height and sturdiness: Even kittens want tall, stable (with extra-heavy bases) scratching posts and trees to let them stretch. Cats love working their back and shoulder muscles to stay flexible. If your cat feels a tree or scratcher is long, tall and stable enough, your furniture will be spared.
- Materials: Cats have a primal urge to shred things. For a satisfying scratch and climb, choose a tree or scratcher with sisal fabric or heavy corrugated cardboard surface.
- Design: Cats love horizontal and vertical surfaces, especially when angled. If possible, place the tree near a window so your cat can watch the great outdoors.
Litter boxes and litter
Use these tips to manage litter boxes and litter.
- Multiple boxes: Even if you have one feline, consider more than one litter box in your home. If you have two cats, consider three boxes. Having too few boxes may cause your cat to develop toileting issues.
- Size: As your cat grows, so should the size of the litter boxes. Kittens need smaller boxes with lower sides and cats need large enough boxes to feel comfortable digging around without touching the sides.
- Height: Your cat's habits may dictate the box's height. If your cat sprays or kicks litter, consider a box with high walls (some go up to 12 inches). But make sure the entry side is low enough for comfortable maneuvering.
- Coverage: If your cat is skittish, a covered box may offer the best privacy. Sometimes, an uncovered box is best for cats that hate feeling trapped. Test a box with and without a lid to see what works.
- Self-cleaning: A calm cat may tolerate self-cleaning litter boxes. Skittish cats may avoid self-cleaning boxes.
It's best to select a diet based on your cat's age.
- Kittens: Kittens need a wet food that's low in carbohydrates and high in protein and fat.
- Older cats: Cats also need moisture in their food for hydration, but with low carbs and lower fat content.
- Dry food: Offer kittens and cats small amounts of dry food to supplement wet food.
- Cat food toppers: Give your felines more flavor and variety in their diets with lickable, drinkable or sprinkled-on cat food toppers.
- Treats: Spoil your kitty with crunchy treats that help with their dental and digestive needs. Consider a cup of cat grass as a premium treat.
Kittens and cats sleep a lot, but luckily, feline bedding is simple to choose. Cat beds with hoods and high sides help kitties feel safe and secure. Removable outer covers make regular washing easy.
Though cats are homebodies, they do need to be taken places, particularly the vet. Some even like to be walked. Here are tips on choosing carriers, leashes, harnesses and collars.
- Carriers: Look for a carrier that's easy on you. Consider carriers with multiple openings (top and side) to lift the cat through. Look for an easy-to-clean carrier if your cat tends to get sick or scared while in transit. Fabric cat carriers have removable bases for cleaning. Make sure the carrier is large enough to include a blanket and toys but small enough to be cozy.
- Leashes and harnesses: It takes patience to get a cat used to these items. A leash or harness should be snug, not tight. Strappy leashes and harnesses offer freedom. Vest-style harnesses evenly distribute weight and pressure to keep older cats feeling secure.
- Collars: Make sure two fingers can easily slide under your cat's collar. A breakaway collar unsnaps or unclicks if something forcefully pulls on it so your cat won't choke.
- Skin and coat care involves oral supplements, gels, vitamins, flea and tick control collars, wipes, oral treatments or shampoos.
- Digestive health requires oral medications to handle hairball control, urinary infections and dewormers, which all keep your cat's intestines in working order.
- Ear, eye and teeth drops and gels clear up irritation.
- Hip, joint and weight-control supplements relieve problems so cats can stay active.
- Stress-relief products keep skittish kitties relaxed. Try homeopathic treats, oral liquid relief or collars with calming fragrances.
