We are hopefully going to meet our new kitten soon- we've had his picture sent over by the rescue! So exciting!
As it's been so long since I've had a kitten does any one have any suggestions of essentials I need to look at getting in and ready for him? Or best types of things- like litter trays?
It's exciting! Keep him in one room till he settles in your house, and put his food dish and water in there along with the litter tray, all spaced apart. The rescue will let you know what food he's used to - wet and dry. I have a mat for the food dishes. You can buy kitten milk but mine just sipped it politely the day she arrived and never touched it again. Give him something soft and warm to sleep on, either a cat bed or a blanket. Make sure he can't go up the chimney if you have one. You'll need toys - a dangler is good and silver foil balls go down well. Mine likes pipecleaners (sharp ends folded in ) either folded up or just curved to bat around.
