Picking Up Your Kitten
Unless you are having your cat delivered, you will need a cat carrier to take home your new kitten. We recommend purchasing the largest carrier your budget will allow. Not only will your large carrier be suitable for your cat when it’s fully grown, but it also allows you to keep a small litter box inside that your cat can use, especially on larger trips. A litterbox can help prevent accidents and will also help your cat feel more comfortable.
We recommend making a small travel litterbox out of a cardboard box. Find something that fits nicely into the carrier and add a small amount of litter to create a DIY disposable travel litterbox. We recommend doing the same thing for your trips to the vet.
We recommend traveling with two blankets, one for inside the carrier and another to keep over the top. The covering blanket can help make some cats feel more secure during your trip, and it will also help keep the kitten warm if the weather is cold.
If you live in Pennsylvania, this list should allow you to find a breeder within driving distance of your home. Some have waiting lists, but there are several kittens in each litter, so there is a good chance you won’t have to wait long. Each of these breeders is a Cat Fanciers Association member and will provide you with a healthy cat.
