I collected a list of things we need to do until little Tigani moves in with us. I hope this list is also of interest for other cat owners to-be.

Things to buy:

  • Transport box to pick up your cat from the breeder and for vet visits in the future
  • Food if possible, (for the first days) the same as your breeder to reduce the stress for your kitty
  • Feeding dishes made out of ceramics or stainless steel
  • Toys
  • Scratching post
  • Litter box
  • Litter for the beginning it would be best to buy the one your breeder used
  • Bed
  • Brush
  • Harness if you plan to get your cat used to it from the beginning as we do

Things to do:

  • remove or hide fragile things (perfume bottle, vase, …)
  • remove or hide dangerous things (hair tie, wool, aluminum foil , …)
  • remove or hide poisonous things (cleaning products, cosmetics, …)
  • bring poisonous plants in your office or give them away (ask google for a list of poisonous plants for cats)

I am going to update this list if I forgot something important.
