New Kitten Checklist: Ensure Your New Feline Friend Thrives

A new kitten comes with so much fun - but that little bundle of joy also comes with questions. What does a new kitten need? Will she stay out of trouble while I'm away? How can I keep her entertained all day? PetSafe® is here to help you learn how to make a new kitten feel at home as you start a lifetime of love together.

Keep her tummy full

A growing kitten has a big appetite. A 2 Meal Feeder is a simple way to schedule a couple meals ahead of time when you're busy or away. While she's growing, your veterinarian may recommend four or more meals a day. Keep up with an easy-to-program 6 Meal Feeder.

Keep fresh water flowing

A Butterfly Fountain gives your kitten constant access to fresh, filtered water. Two flow options provide the moving water that cats big and small prefer to drink. A ½ Gallon Fountain will keep up with her thirst as she grows up.

Keep her entertained

If there's one thing kittens do, it's play! The Bolt projects an unpredictable laser onto the floor for hours of chasing fun. The Dancing Dot™ hangs from a doorknob or sits on a counter to send an irresistible laser dot scurrying around the room. Toys like the Fishbowl Feeder are doubly enticing as they combine play time with meal time.

Keep her out of trouble

Kittens are naturally curious. To keep her safely off the counter, couch or curtains, the SSSCAT® Spray Pet Deterrent uses a harmless puff of air to deter her from off-limits places. For more mischievous kitties, a ScatMat® uses a harmless static correction to teach safe boundaries.

Keep the litter box fresh

At potty time, little kitties can produce some surprisingly big odor! Thankfully, options like the Deluxe Crystal Litter Box use crystal litter that's five times more effective than clumping litter at reducing odor. A convenient Crystal Litter 2-Pack can last two months in a one-kitten household.

Keep her safe in the car

For a trip to the vet or an afternoon joyride, a Booster Seat provides a window seat in the car with a safety tether that attaches to your kitten’s harness for a secure trip.

Keep critters out while she explores

Your kitten will soon want to see more of her world. A Microchip Cat Door responds to her microchip’s unique code, locking all other four-legged visitors out so only she has access.
