This post is for cat-lovers who haven’t got a cat but are considering getting one.
So I’ll write about your cat’s trousseau.
All brides are beautiful. But for this they need a trousseau.
All the cats are beautiful. But to be beautiful, they also need certain things.
I called them “trousseau” to point out that the beauty of cats also depends on these necessary things.
Ideally, they should be purchased before you bring the animal home.
Ideas to make your work easier
I want to spare you unnecessary expenses. Give yourself the satisfaction of offering a comfortable life to your favorite animal.
So your cat’s trousseau contains some essential things to make your cat’s life comfortable.
If you want your cat to be happy you have to take care of her needs.
The cat eats. You have to take two bowls: one for food and one for water. Food bowls should be simple, without ornaments. The best ones are those with rubber edges that do not overturn easily and do not move. The kitten needs to have fresh water at all times. Many cats do not drink too much water just because it is not fresh.
You must keep them permanently clean.
If you have money and you want to pamper your cat, you can buy a fountain where the water is constantly flowing. Cats love running water.
este a very important issue. The kitten can only go out after being vaccinated. Until then, he needs his litter. When choosing it, consider the size of the kitten and the fact that it will grow rapidly. He will have to fit in the litter and when he is ripe. Do not buy a litter that has high walls because the kitten may not be able to climb its wall.
It is important to keep the litter clean because otherwise, the kitten will refuse to use the litter.

It does not cost extra if you buy through my site.
The carrier and the crib
To carry the kitten, without disturbing anyone and without causing any discomfort to the animal, a specific object is required: the carrier. Not all models are indicated. Some models are split in half and can also be used as a kennel bed. Thus, the kitten will get used to the carrier, sleeping in it. When you have to carry it, do not run to hide from his sight. It can be taken to the veterinarian or to another place where he does not like it.
There are also indicated models, those of plastic. They are very light and clean quickly. The positioning of the hatch is also important. For example: if the hatch is above it is easier to remove or insert the kitten. On the other hand, the models that have the opening in front, have a system easier to detach their upper half.
The inside of the conveyor can be arranged according to your preference. You can put artificial fur or textile material.
Don’t get excited about the wicker conveyors. They are really cute, but they break very quickly and are difficult to clean. They remain impregnated with fat.
If you do not buy a conveyor that also makes a bed, in the market, there are sophisticated models of cat beds. From the shapes of phones or cars to the delightful forms of fluffy blankets. With ornaments or in the form of an igloo.
But your cat will prefer to sleep with you if you love her and allow her.
Other necessary shopping
If you have a long-haired kitten, you must start brushing it from day one. Even, if you do not consider this an emergency. The brush, in this case, is a vital necessity.
Get used to your kitten being brushed from an early age. Thus, this will become a pleasant experience for both you and him. Especially during periods of mating, in spring and autumn, the cat must be brushed. Cats kept only in the house do not appear during the whole year.
Normal brushes tend to rip the knots in the fur of the kitten. Better to buy a fine-tooth comb or a special brush.
When brushing, it is advisable to inspect the skin of the kitten for any signs of illness.
You can also buy gloves.
Cats from the same family wash each other and thus create an emotional bond.
I have many cats, they wash each other even if they are not from the same family. The affective connection is obvious.
The cat has claws. I wrote about them. See here.
To keep them in good shape, you must arrange a place where the cat sharpening its claws. By scratching a rough surface, cats remove their nail layer from the surface and reveal a new nail, hidden underneath. For this reason, it is not recommended cutting nails in cats.
There are different models of sisal in commerce, from flat surfaces to furniture for cats, so-called sisal. On the sisal the cat can do acrobatics, thus maintaining self in good physical form.
If, however, you want to cut your cat’s nails, first go to the vet to see how it is done correctly. Buy a special tongs for this operation.
Many of the toys and places set up for sharpening nails are impregnated with “mat grass”, an extremely attractive plant for cats.
Cat breeders pamper their pets. She is happy to see them cheerful, playful and lively. That is why they are in a perpetual search for fun objects for their little cats. So you can buy various toys, from the most naughty. From multicolored natural fur mouse, polyurethane balls, to plastic balloons with bells, etc. Just be careful what you offer the cat to play. You don’t have to allow the kitten to lick the toy or swallow the wool.
The collar is not necessary if the kitten is kept only in the house. But if you start an adventure outside the home, it becomes essential.
You can also use a harness, being safer and more comfortable for the kitten.
The collar must be provided with a piece of elastic and a quick release system. When you put the collar, check that it is not too wide, do not lose the kitten. But not too tight – just to allow the insertion of two fingers under it.
Last but not least, you need to think about the health of your cat.
Most cats spend most of their time licking their fur. The need to lick the fur is generated by the following reasons: to clean, by wetting the hair, to relax, if stressed or excited or to remove the dead strands from the fur.
With a very harsh tongue, the cat gets to collect a lot of dead yarn from the fur. Then swallow them.
To avoid digestive problems, constipation or diarrhea, we must first buy food that aims to decrease the possibilities of the formation of hair gems and the elimination of those formed.
Apartment cats are more exposed because they have no way to eat grass. The consumption of grass in cats is a way to stimulate the digestive elimination of fur hawks.
That is why we need to buy a special bowl and seeds of grass.
They grow very fast. The seeds I buy from Zooplus grow in 10 days, after which I give the cats to eat it.
If you love cats and are thinking of adopting one, you must do some shopping in advance. These are done only once, except for food and grass.
Thus, your cat’s trousseau will include:
- 2 bowls, one for food, one for water; possibly a fountain
- Litter, bed linen and a shovel
- Transporter and possibly a crib
- Brush, sisal, special nail clippers
- Toys.cat- collar, harness
- Food which aims to decrease the possibilities of formation of the hair gems as well as the elimination of those formed and Grass.
