About Me
Understanding Pet Supplies

After I became a pet owner, I could tell that I needed to work a little harder to create a comfortable environment for my little one. I started going through and looking for a great business that could help out, and I realized that the place down the street had most of the products I needed. They were easy to work with, simple to reach and incredible fun to work with. They also had an amazing product inventory that helped me to create the kind of home my pet deserved. This website is all about understanding pet supplies and getting the right items for your home.

New Kittens and Cat Litter: Tips for Pet Owners

Rhonda Owens

If your feline just had a litter of kittens, being concerned about access to a litter pan and odor control may be at the forefront of your mind. Making sure that your pet and her brood are well-taken care of are important and will prevent disruptions to your normal routine.

Choose The Product That Is Best For Your Needs

Litter that is sold in a pet or a grocery store get the job done and pretty much block odors, but the quality of the product is dependent upon the manufacturer and if you use a store brand, you may be compromising the cleanliness of a box, in exchange for a cheap price. LItter varieties consist of granules, shredded products, and expanding capsules.

There are even organic litter types, which are made out of renewable materials that are environmentally safe. Many litter types that are sold by suppliers that offer a delivery service contain odor blockers, which will reduce foul smells. Ask a local pet shop for recommendations on the best cat litter for odor, especially because you'll have many little cats using the litter box. 

Don't Sweat Running Out Of Litter

Cats and kittens are creatures that tend to follow a daily grooming pattern. The mother cat will take care of the basics, associated with caring for her kittens. When you order from a company that offers a cat litter delivery service, you don't need to worry about running out of one of the most fundamental materials necessary for caring for cats and kittens.

Decide how you would like to set up some litter boxes at your home. Keep the mother cat's box in the same place that you normally do and pick an area nearby, where her kittens can use a separate box. Depending upon the number of kittens that need to be cared for, choose how many boxes you will need to provide constant accessibility for your mother cat and her kittens. 

Instill A Routine

When the kittens are first born, the mother cat will handle cleaning them and the babies won't be able to use a standard litter box. Allow the mother to do her thing and do not move any of the boxes that you have set up  The mother cat will feel at ease, noticing that her box is in the same place that it has always been in. Her offspring will get used to their new surroundings and will begin to learn how to enter and exit their boxes, which will make the transition to owning a group of cats a whole lot easier.
