LITTER

We use Equisicat paper pellet litter or paper crumble litter. This specific brand is a product made by Petsmart and can only be purchased at Petsmart! You are free to choose other brands of paper pellets, this brand is our preferred choice. We use a large open top regular litter box.

If you decide you want to go with a different litter, we recommended the Breeze pellet litter system. Everything to get you started comes all together in a box.

PLAY / SCRATCHING POST

Have a Cat tree for your kitten that has scratching posts! They will need somewhere to scratch! This also gives them a mini playground of sorts and resting spots.

I like the go pet club cat trees if your looking for a quality cat tree for an affordable price! These can be purchased on Amazon and Chewy.com

You can purchase cat trees from other retailers also.
