Nutrition is everything

To us, nutrition really is everything.
We often hear that
our kittens are
exceptionally healthy looking
and happy and active.

This all starts with what we feed them and their moms.
Choosing high
quality dry food has
become more challenging
than ever.

It's been upsetting
to see "peas" 
added to just about 
every high quality dry
food out there.
And because of the peas
we can no longer recommend
our highest quality
favorite foods.

Please do not pay
ridiculously high prices
for foods filled with peas
claiming to be high protein.
Pea and all plant based
proteins are useless to cats
as they can not metabolize 
and use plant based
proteins. Cats are
natural carnivores
and need animal based

SO many brands are doing this now and calling
themselves "grain free."

First, we will share premium foods with more affordable options listed just after,
as we are realistic 
that not all families
want or can afford the price
tag of very high quality foods.
If you can afford to,
we recommend adding
at least a small
amount of the premium foods
with the more modest options
to give you kitten the best
nutrition possible.
(We do not mix and feed in
separate bowls)

Darwin's is a wonderful raw food diet.  A great option for your kitten.

Litter should always be unscented

We recommend using our litter for at least the first week with your baby. Keeping products the same in the first week helps transition your little one to your home.

Kittens are ready

for full size litter pans

While there are many mats
on the market to collect scattered cat litter,
we like to make sure
nothing will discourage
your kitten from using
the litter box.
So we recommend using
a small shag rug.
The high pile fluff
captures scattered
litter and helps keep
your kittens feet clean 
without the unpleasant
texture of many mats.
These are lifesavers
for hardwood floors.

Toys! Toys! Toys!

 A wand toy is the best
when first introducing
your baby to your family.
Especially with children.
We prefer to use very
gentle tools for grooming.
Our Ragdolls have gorgeous
coats and harsh toold like slickers and metal combs
can damage their fur.
We use a boar bristle brush
and a regular soft plastic 
comb made for
human hair.
We've found these are 
excellent choices
for maintaining the 
coats of all of our cats
and kittens.
Scratching Post
A scratching post is essential!
Cats need to scratch to shed their claws and this post is by
far the best we've ever found.
It's wonderfully solid and sturdy. Strong and stable enough for your baby to climb it and long enough to give them a full body stretch when they scratch.  Every kitten
we have absolutely
loves this post!
Worth every penny!

Cat Trees

are every cats

most important possession!

They are 

to your cat

(and will protect furniture!)

Cat trees offer your kitten
a sense of security and 
a sense of their very
own home within
your home. Especially
when you're away from
the house or busy doing
other things.
While felt or fleece covered
trees are less expensive,
they shed relentlessly
and tend to be much less
stable.  They also will 
need replaced frequently,
especially for large
breed cats like
our Ragdolls.
Investing in a high quality
tree made of real wood
and real carpet
is the best gift
you can give your
new kitten and they will
last for many many years.
So while they seem
expensive at first glance,
they save money over the life
of your kitten as they will
not need replaced
once a year as cheaper
options will need.
Placed next to a window,
one of these trees
will be your cats favorite spot
when they can not
be next to you!
