|When you have decided that a cat is the pet for you, there are certain preparations that you will need to make before your new pet can come home.|
Firstly you will need to ensure that you have all the necessary equipment that your new cat will require such as a bed, food and water bowls, cat or kitten food, a collar and some toys. For more information on the equipment your cat will need, continue>
You will also need to prepare your home and garden for your new arrival by ensuring the following:
In your garden ensure there are no holes or gaps in your fence and gate that your new kitten could escape through.
Remove any poisonous plants or ensure your kitten doesn't have access to them.
In your house, remove anything dangerous that your new kitten could chew, eg electric cables or other household objects that could be chewed and swallowed.
Ensure that anything that your kitten could become stuck in/under is removed or blocked off.
Remove anything in your house or garden that could fall onto and hurt your new kitten.
By making the above preparations before you bring your kitten or cat home, you will be providing a safe environment for your new pet.
