Things cats like or need

 
There are certain things that you will need to do for your new American Shorthair kitten.  I will list what I can think of below.
  • A litter box - the covered ones help control smell and litter scattered all over, Litter boxes should be cleaned daily (your baby kitten will need a smaller litter pan to start with, without the lid on)  If you have several levels in your home, it is wise to have a litter box on each level.  Also if you buy the automatic cleaning litter boxes leave the motor turned off for a week or so until the kitten is used to using the litter box before you turn the motor on so as not to scare the kitten at the wrong moment during it's transition from our home to yours.  Another thing to consider is that I do not use the cover on the litter box when the kittens are little as I am using a smaller litter box. So they are not used to the covers when they go to their new homes.  You can introduce the covers after a few weeks in your home.
  • A litter scoop - They have little slats that filter the clumps
  • Litter - We use Tidy Cat clumping for multiple cats - Buy this for the first time anyway and then slowly add the new litter you want to use if you prefer a different kind, it will be an easier transition for the kitten if there are familiar things around.
  • The kittens immunization series may need to be completed.  Your kitten will be up to date on it's immunizations when you receive it, but further shots may be necessary to finish the immunization series. 
  • A safe carrying crate to take your kitten/cat to the vet or on trips with you
  • Also, your vet may need to give your kitten a rabies shot after it has reached 3 months of age or a certain different age in your state.
  • Annual health checks at your veterinarian with an annual immunization booster, and any other check ups recommended by your vet.
  • Clean water daily - dish should be washed between fillings
  • Fresh food daily - dish should be washed between feedings - We feed Purina One Healthy Kitten dry and if you want to feed canned food we use Friskies.  1 kitten (8 week old) may eat 1/3 can a day.  Refrigerate non used portions.  Do not make the mistake of giving your cat too much soft cat food.  Chewing the dry chunks are good for gum and teeth health.
  • A safe environment - no poisonous plants or open chemical containers
  • Gentle handling
These are things that kittens /cats like
  • A scratching climbing post - saves on furniture
  • An accessible window with a perch/ledge so they can watch what goes on outside - (preferably a sunny window)
  • A snuggle bed is enjoyed by many cats, but some do not use them
  • Safe Toys made for cats
  • Love and affection - kittens/cats love attention, to be petted and talked to & played with
