In Northern Virginia, we recommend Sondi Moore of AuPurr Cat Care.
Their team bring in feathers, cat nip, and feed and water your cat while you are
on vacation. No need to worry. The Cat Nanny will handle it for you.
They even do the vacuuming and watering the plants while you are away, so you
can come home to a clean house and a happy cat! Outstanding service!
Thanks for being Awesome Sondi!
By Far, the best cat litter on the market.
Arm and Hammer: Clump and seal, black box.
(Tight clumping cat litter)
Light weight box.
Purrfect for a multiple cat household.
Ranking second as the cattery favorite,
Tidy Cats Scoop for multiple cats is perfect for
just one cat, but when there is more than five, a
tighter clumping cat litter is recommended.
Smell is great!
A purrfect solution to litter odors.
Just sprinkle a little in the litter once cleaned.
Use this product once or twice a week.
Fuller Brush Boar Bristle: Short and Long Hair.
If you can find the New old Stock, Vintage version of
this product on Ebay or Amazon, go for it.
It has to be the SOFT NATURAL BOAR BRISTLE !
You may be able to find these in local stores, but not
the Fuller brand. Maybe you can find Conair brand.
But those are usually manufactured in combination
with (scratchy) vinyl simulated boar bristled. It would be a disaster to use
the plastic/vinyl version of this brush. Check local Beauty Shops for this style.
Fiskars Blunt (child's) Scissors.
Must have for Long haired cats.
Stripping comb: For advanced breeders/show.
For sculpting a long haired cat's (Persian) face.
Cat nail clippers:
We use this kind, exclusively. Can be found
online for less than four dollars.
Wrap the cat in a towel, or ask for help.
It is really a two person job.
Use on short haired cats to pull out excessive
fur. A bit expensive, around $40.00 but worth it.
No cheap imitation will really do the same trick.
Metal Combs. Must have for
long haired grooming.
Viynal or plastic combs are a
disaster. They cause static
electricity, and dry the fur.
Unscented baby wipes:
Must have for quick clean ups, wiping down the
cat. Unscented only!
The puppy version
comes in a waterless
and tearless version.
Sometimes tough to
find, but an excellent
Corn starch. White colored cats. Put some on your
fingers, work into the fur around the face and eyes.
Keeps the tearing to a minimum and makes the face look
bright white and beautiful. Be careful not to get into the
eyes. (Must be used on clean dry fur. )
Do not try to live life without it.
Found in the plant version in Pet stores.
Also please keep dry cat nip on stock
Cat Tree/ Scratching post:
MUST HAVE. You know why.
Weather you buy a mall post
or a large scratching post
furniture piece, you have to
have it. I prefer the furniture as a shedding tool,
a catnip dusted attraction, and a scratching
post all in one. The cats love it! The solitary
scratching post will do, but they love the house.
Do your research.
Buy the kind that
best suits you.
Buy a small entry way carpet to put under it to catch any loose litter and to match your decor.
These two styles:
the toy on a string,
little things to chase,
and a laser pointer are all you need.
No cat's life is complete without them.
Any kind. Noodle boxes, shipping boxes.
Shoe boxes.Even boxes that are too small.
They will squeeze into them.
If you do not give the cat boxes...its your call:
Without a box, many boxes in fact: a rotating exchange of new boxes,
She will go in your laundry basket, cabinet, your backpack, purse, briefcase.
Just get past the look of a box in the living room, and give the cat a box, many
many boxes. Dust them with catnip. Watch her go crazy.
