Just found out today we're getting a female, 3 month old kitten this Thursday, and possibly her brother as well! I haven't had a cat in years, and there are lots of new products out. What do you recommend for litter, litterboxes, food, grooming, etc.? Will she need flea treatments if she doesn't go out? The cat will be kept indoors and we don't plan to have her claws removed. She is a shorthair.
Also, since we're getting her from a shelter, she will be spayed Thursday morning, and we will pick her up in the afternoon. I don't like the idea of her having to deal with a strange environment while she is in pain, but I guess a shelter cage wouldn't be that comfy either. What can we do to make her more comfortable after the surgery? Will she be in much pain?
Any advice would be appreciated.
