Your cat/kitten is currently being fed PURINA KITTEN NURTURE dry cat food and should continue a diet of this cat food or slowly be phased to a new cat food by mixing small amounts of the food you would like to move them to in with the type of cat food listed below. Failure to provide the cat food your kitten is accustomed to during the first couple weeks at home can result in upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and/or constipation which can lead to other health issues. Please call us with any questions and we will be happy to talk you through proper steps for weaning your kitten over to the cat food of your choice.
Your cat/kitten has been litter box trained using Fresh Step Premium Crystal litter. Please use this litter for your kitten or purchase at least one bag of this litter so that a small amount can be added on top of the litter of your choosing to help the kitten make the transition and avoid confusion. Kitten should be shown hourly for the first day at home where the litter box is and should be confined to a 1 to 3 room area so that location of the litter box is easy to find. New kittens are often very excited exploring all the new areas and smells of their new home and can forget where the litter box is in their first day at home if allowed to roam a large home without being taken back to their litter box multiple times.
