If you’ve read the previous post, you’ll know exactly what this is, but just in case; this is a kitten care package! One I received from Fin’s breeder when taking him home, and one I totally did not expect to be so gigantic, but I’m very grateful for it! I’ll just be telling you what was in the package today, but be on the look-out for another (food) haul soon! Continue reading
I’ve been pretty much unstoppable in my shopping sprees, Finley now has a proper toy collection, and I’m far from finished. I finally got all the essentials down, other than some things with expiration dates (think food, worming treatment, etc.) and some small things I might’ve forgotten, but I know myself well enough that I can’t say I won’t buy him more stuff. I’ll be visiting England for a week during the summer holidays; different country, different pet stores.. I probably won’t be able to resist the temptation. Anyways, I bought all these things over the course of a couple of weeks, and I’ll tell you something about them!
Finally, some of the things I’ve ordered for Finley have arrived! These are the first few bits and pieces I’ve collected for him. I’ll tell you a little about each item, and I might post first impressions and reviews on some of the items, seeing as I couldn’t find a lot of information about some of them.
As you can see, its a whole jumble of things, and it certainly isn’t everything I’ll need. I’ve decided to buy Fin’s things bit by bit, saving food and other items with an expiration date for later. For now, I’ve bought some things to use for storage, some toys, and other stuffs.
Now, they’re completely convinced and I’m getting ready to buy things and prepare the house for Fin. I’m looking around on webshops, I drop by pet shops after work sometimes and have now also compiled a list of the actual products I’ll most likely buy, although I’m planning to check out a couple more pet shops before I start ordering things online.
I chose the products very carefully by looking at reviews, and personal recommendations I’ve gotten from friends that have cats, and my breeder.
I also made a checklist to show them how prepared I was; but this list also really helped me when I was figuring out how much money I needed to properly take care of a cat. Anyways, some things are optional, but here’s a general list of what you’ll need to buy before you get a cat. You’ll just have to decide for yourself if you’ll get everything on the list; I’ve written down some advice or reasons to buy these things under some of the not so obvious necessities.
