We recently got a new kitten named Holly. I've been slowly figuring out what works for us and what doesn't. I thought I'd do a post about a few kitten related items we've found helpful. (actually, there's a couple of things that would work for dogs too) All pics enlarge when clicked.
|Holly loves her Kong Kickeroo! Plays with it constantly. We got it at Petsmart.|
|My husband and son made her this Kitty Condo. They used leftover scraps from when we had new carpet installed so it would match. A kitty condo HAS to match the carpet, right? :)|
|These are a few of her toys. Notice her feet in the upper left corner. She's wondering what I'm doing with HER stuff. Ha! She loves the catnip mice. She REALLY loves the pink one, as you can probably tell. I think most of these came from Petsmart.|
|Here's a pic of the flea comb.|
|We try to keep her toys in this basket in the front hall. We have to pick them up every night or she'll make tons of noise playing with them. :) The basket is from JoAnn's.|
|Here's what they look like when they're opened up. They have two handles for convenience.|
|Here's how I store them. I pre-open each one (they kind of stick together and they're easier to work with if they|
are pre-opened) and just pop them into a gallon ziplock bag that I keep in the laundry room where her litter box is.
|Here's what it looks like. Sorry about the dust. I should have dusted that shelf first. :)|
|I don't know why I felt like I had to keep the diffuser hidden. Maybe because it was a Christmas scent and has gingerbread men on it? Ha! I guess it is a little out of season. :) I just tucked it behind this candle on a shelf in the laundry room.|
|Here's one more pic of sweet Holly. :)|
|This pic cracks me up every time I see it! She was mid-yawn! That's her corrugated cardboard scratcher in the background and her "fishing pole" toy in front of her. The scratcher is from Petsmart and the fishing pole toy was a gift from my mom. :)|
|Like I said, Holly had a few fleas when she came to us. I ordered this from http://www.drsfostersmith.com/ We put it on her and haven't seen any fleas since. It's just a once a month application and it really seems to work. As a bonus, we saved $20 on the Advantage II vs. getting it at a local pet supply store. (even with shipping, we still saved $20)|
I'm not getting paid to endorse any of these things. They are just a few products we found very helpful. Hopefully soon I will get a post up about how Holly came to our family. Thanks for visiting!
