|General Cat Care #1: Before You Bring Your Cat Home|
|You will need food, food dish, water bowl, interactive toys, brush, comb, safety cat collar, scratching post, litter and litter box.|
|General Cat Care #2: Feeding|
|An adult cat should be fed one large or two smaller meals each day. Kittens from 6 to 12 weeks need to be fed four times a day. Kittens from three to six months need to be fed three times a day. You can either feed specific meals, throwing away any leftover canned food after 30 minutes or free-feed dry food (keeping food out all the time).|
Feed your cat a high-quality, brand-name kitten or cat food (avoid generic brands) two to three times a day. Kittens can be fed human baby food for a short time if they won’t eat kitten food softened by soaking in warm water. Use turkey or chicken baby food made for children six months and older. Gradually mix with cat food. Cow’s milk is not necessary and can cause diarrhea in kittens and cats. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Wash and refill water bowls daily.
What Kind of Cat Furniture is Ideal…
Cat Condos are just like a play area where they'll be able to play and have a good healthy scratch. This type of furniture is typically made of sturdy solid wood interiors with large bases to prevent it from toppling over. Cat furniture lined with house hold carpets should be avoided because they may easily injure your kittens claws, to prevent any future harm to kittens claws it is suggested to look for faux fur covered trees. For additional reinforcement a lot of pet owners place them on a wall to make sure it won't fall over when kittens climb on it.
Who are they for?
Cat towers are good for all types of felines especially if they spend most of their lifetime in the house, cat furniture will improve their mojo and help them with captivity stresses. They are fantastic for creating an inside play area for both adult cats and kittens.

|General Cat Care #4: Handling|
|To pick up your cat, place one hand behind the front legs and another under the hindquarters. Lift gently. Never pick up a cat by the scruff of the neck (behind the ears) or by the front legs without supporting the rear end.|
|General Cat Care #5: Housing|
|Cats should have a clean, dry place of their own in the house. Line your cat’s bed with a soft, warm blanket or towel. Be sure to wash the bedding often. Please keep your cat indoors. If your companion animal is allowed outside, he can contract diseases, get ticks or parasites, become lost or get hit by a car, hurt in a fight or poisoned. Also, cats prey on wildlife.|

What are the Great things about Cat Furniture…?
Cats will only scratch on the scratching posts on his or her furniture. Investing in cat furniture can help you train your cat to scratch the scratching posts and protect your walls, doors, carpets, Sofas and the legs on chairs and tables. They will be able to exercise even while indoors without damaging other pieces inside your home. The sisal scratching posts helps to attract cats because they are made from the sisal plant that is actually known to encourage feline behavior such as scratching and scent marking. The ledges may prove to be a popular sleeping place when the model you buy has a cozy enclosed bedroom. Some Kitten's enjoy their cat trees so much, you may even find them taking a nap in their little bedrooms!

|General Cat Care #6: Identification|
|If allowed outdoors (again, we caution against it!), your cat needs to wear a safety collar and an ID tag. A safety collar with an elastic panel will allow your cat to break loose if the collar gets caught on something. An ID tag or an implanted microchip can help insure that your cat is returned if he or she becomes lost.|
|General Cat Care #7: Litter Box|
|All indoor cats need a litter box, which should be placed in a quiet, accessible location. A bathroom or utility room is a good place for your cat’s box. In a multi-level home, one box per floor is recommended. Avoid moving the box unless absolutely necessary. Then do so slowly, a few inches a day. Cats won’t use a messy, SMELLY litter box. Scoop solids out of the box at least once a day. Dump everything, wash with a mild detergent (don’t use ammonia) and refill at least once a week, less frequently if using clumping litter. Don’t use deodorants or scents in the litter or litter box (especially avoid lemon scent).|
