Make sure the bed you give your new cat is warm and inviting. Think about your cat's interests and get him or her something like a comfy bed or a cat hideaway.
Put a litter box somewhere calm and accessible. For easier maintenance, use clumping or non-clumping litter in a litter box that fits your cat.
Cats scratch for two reasons: to maintain healthy claws and to mark their territory. Buy a scratching post or scratcher to prevent your cat from scratching your expensive furniture.
The cat's food and water should be served in strong, non-toxic dishes. If you want to eat more comfortably at the table, you might want to invest in some raised bowls.
Toys like feather wands and catnip-stuffed toys might help you keep your cat engaged. A cat's mental and physical health can both benefit from playtime with toys.
A cat carrier is a must for trips to the vet or on the road. Pick a safe and comfy carrier with good ventilation.
To keep your cat's fur tidy, use a brush or comb. A scratching post or nail clippers can help maintain nails.
You should stock up on nutritious, high-quality cat food. Training treats and special awards are some great uses for treats.
