1. Food: Make sure you have the correct food as any sudden change of food will upset your Persian kitten’s belly. Your kitten is currently eating Life’s Abundance all stage cat food. . Formulated with vitamins, minerals, and other trace nutrients, Natural sources of soluble and insoluble fiber. It is a nutrient dense food with high quality meat proteins and NO by-products, corn, wheat, gluten or soy. NO artificial flavors, colors, sugars or chemical preservatives. Their foods have never been part of a recall and I believe this to be one of the best food on the market. Persians have a very delicate digestive system and ours are accustomed to this food, therefore it is important to continue feeding this food in order to avoid an upset stomach.
3. Vitamins: To keep your Persian healthy, please give daily vitamins available from Nu Vet Vitamins. You can use the link here or order from our website. You can also call 1-800-474-7044 and give my name, Gaby . We feel this is the best vitamin on the market and it is given to all of our Persians. Start by using ¼ of the recommended amount by 6 months ½ full scoop by 1 year of age. Please click here to order your vitamins Nuvet Vitamins.
4. Litter: Your kitten is using a high quality litter called Precious Cat which can be purchased at PetSmart. This litter is biodegradable, nontoxic, and helps prevent kidney failure and urinary tract infections. Although there are several different kinds of Precious Cat Litter, I prefer the Senior mix as the particles are small which works with kittens. Learn more about Precious Cat Litter products by visiting their website at www.PreciousCat.com.
5.Toys: The cats love many different types of toys, but they really enjoy any type of battery-powered toy, action toys, Wacky Mice, and little jingle balls. They also enjoy the Cat Sitter videos available from the Home Shopping Club. Laser lights and pin flashlights are great for a time of play.
6.Scratching: Personally we have found that we do not need to de-claw. We use Scratching Pads and Cat Trees and have found that they can be trained to scratch there. You can find many wonderful cat trees and condos from our site at a great discount. Our cats really enjoy Turbo Scratchers, just sprinkle a little Cat-Nip onto the pad and the cats will go crazy on the Scratcher, not your furniture! Any of these things are available at Wal-Mart or Pet Supply Stores.
7. Grooming: Persians do not require as much grooming as you might think. Our routine includes a daily brushing & weekly nail trim. We do eye wiping and baths when necessary and our Persians stay beautiful and healthy.
For all our grooming needs we use Castle Bath Natural Pet Products. From shampoos and conditioners to soaps and soaks, each of their items are crafted with love and consideration – and from only organic and natural ingredients.
