  1. Cardboard scratcher sturdy for at least 2 years.
  1. Sisal rope-textured scratchers (default cat tree pillars). We recommend avoid using cat tree that’s too tall when the kitten is till young for safety reasons…
  1. Fishing rod toy. We will give you some special replacement attachments that drive the kitten crazy. Please store it away from cats after playing because they will chew the cords for sure…
  1. Potential toy upgrades after kittens fully adapted to your house : cat tunnels (round/donut shape usually well-received), electronic cat toys (ex.1, ex.2), laser pointer (don’t point at their eyes!) , or this ripple rug.
  1. NOTE: Catnip/Matatabi (cat weeds): We don’t usually let the cats sniff it for several reasons—— they will have some decrease in agility and response time —— so don’t let the cat get access to high cat tree or play too rough with them after catnip/matatabi as they might land improperly… We discourage rough play/letting kittens jump too high in general.

(Feel free to ask us if you need some user experience on cat toys. We have sampled almost all cat toys available on the market and know all the bummer toys that cats don’t like.)

Flea Prevention

We use the Revolution Plus. Please get it according to the kitten weight.

For internal dewormer, please consult your vet if needed. We deworm kittens three times before heading to your home.
