Taking Your Kitten Home
The most common question is what to
feed your kittens when you get them home. Follow
1) We will send you home with
some Life's Abundance and Instinctive Choice wet food.
2) Put out the Life's Abundance dry
so they can eat it at any time.
3) You can feed them about a
spoonful of the Instinctive Choice one or two times per day.
4) Continue this until they are 6 months old.
5) After 6 months of age go to the feeding
instructions further down on this page.
When adoption day arrives you will
given the following items to help make the transition
for your new family member as smoothly as possible.
o - Pet Carrier
o - Medical Record
o - Supply of food. We feed them Life's Abundance and
o - Security Blanket - Has the
scent of the kitten's litter mates. Use this blanket
especially at night while sleeping to give them
Before you come to get your kitten
spend some time at home preparing your home for the
kitten's arrival. You can save yourself some
anxious moments by doing the following:
1) Make sure your kitten cannot get
into any type of chemicals or pest control substances.
Control # 888-426-4435
2) Limit the kittens to one room
when left alone and then let them branch out to the rest
of the house. Remember they love to explore and they
will find every hole you have in the house.
Sometimes it is not so easy to get them out. Bathrooms,
kitchens and utility rooms are the worst for small
places to hide and dangerous chemicals.
3) Check for access holes to hot
tubs and Jacuzzis. Check around your dishwasher,
refrigerator, washer and dryer.
4) Feeding your kitten: Use a
glass, ceramic or metal bowl with Life's Abundance dry in it for the kitten to graze
on all day.
This will help them put on some weight for good growth
and health at this young age. Feed the Instinctive
Choice wet food in the morning or at night, whichever fits your
schedule best. They will come to expect it at
whatever time you choose to feed them. Feed the wet food
once a day, a spoonful until they are 1 year old.
5) Things to look out for: If your kitten is
not eating, drinking, using the kitty litter,
playing and grooming then something is wrong. If
your kitten has diarrhea then there is something wrong.
the kitten being sick one day is like you being sick for
a week. You cannot wait to act.
Diarrhea can be serious and should be
looked at immediately. Sometimes the move to their
new home can be the cause. Take a stool
sample to your vet right away to have it checked.
Do not let the diarrhea go for more
than one day without being checked.
Most newly adopted kittens go home
and have no problems at all.
Lastly, you should make an
appointment with your Vet to have him checked as soon as
you get him home. Take a
stool sample with you even if everything looks fine. They have been
checked several times prior to them going to their new
Food choice for your Silver is as
important to their physical health as eating the
right food is for you. Remember that foods
you buy in grocery or specialty stores
are not the best because by the time you open the bag
the food will already be 6 months to a year old.
The reason it is that old is because the manufacturers
have to make huge batches of food in order to be able to
stock these stores.
Life's Abundance is only 6
weeks old when you open the bag.
We leave Life's Abundance dry
out all day for them to graze on.
We also feed Life's Abundance
Instinctive Choice wet to
the kittens and the adults in the
in the evening. They really look forward to this
as a treat and it is good for them.
We are including the
Web Site of Life's Abundance for you to
look at if you like. They use human grade
ingredients with no
preservatives. You can feed this holistic food for
the same price as other so called premium foods even
when you figure in the shipping charges.
IMPORTANT: Wet versus dry
Instinctive Choice wet is NOT to be fed as the only
thing you feed your cats. It is NOT made to be
100% of their daily needs. A diet of just wet
food can lead to dental problems, plus a cat would have
to eat 3 cans of wet food per day to get their daily
Life's Abundance is only available by ordering it.
That is why it is so fresh and preservative free and
worth the effort. Also Life's Abundance has a 30-day
money back guarantee.
Cats must have
plenty of fresh water every day. It needs to be
changed every day.... The bowl needs to be cleaned every
day also or it becomes a germ farm....
This is important.

You will not have to clean
their ears often but if you do Life's Abundance
Ear Care Formula works great to dissolve the wax and
cleans up really easy. Brenda loves this product.
Silver Persians have varying
degrees of eye staining. If done as needed it
takes a very short time to clean them. If you let
it go it can take a few days to a couple weeks to
get them back in good shape. This is what we do to
clean the eyes: We start by cleaning their eyes from any
dried tears with a Qtip using the warm
water. Once you have the eyes clean, then go on to the
Eye Envy products. We use liquid and
powder. You can purchase at Amazon.com Use either a Q-tip or makeup removal pad
and saturate the stain with the
liquid. Then use a Q-tip or pat on some of the white powder. Leave it on
the stain and it will help to lighten the stained area.
Bathing & Drying ( READ ALL OF
THIS BEFORE STARTING)
Your kitten has already had more than one bath and we do use a blow dryer. I
did not say they liked it but they have already been
exposed to bathing and drying. When they get dirty wash them...
I would not bathe one of our cats more than once every 2
or 3 months unless they get unusually dirty. Some
cats keep themselves so clean you may never need to
** Before bathing your Silver make
sure you have combed out ALL of the mats. See the front
page of the website for the only 4 combs you will ever
need for your Silver.
We use Life's
Abundance Cat Shampoo and Bath Fresh Mist between
Gather what you need.
1) Life's Abundance Cat Shampoo and
Blue Dawn. It must be the Blue Dawn. Dilute the Blue
Dawn by 50% with water.
2) A large towel.
3) Put on your kevlar vest, heavy
leather gloves and helmet. LOL..... Just
1) Clip their nails
2) COMB them out completely.
Any knots will become worse with washing. BEST TO
COMB THEM IN ADVANCE. Let them totally relax and then
proceed. Best to do both nails and combing prior to the
actual bath. Maybe an hour or so.
3) Put them in the sink and wet the
hair using luke warm water.
4) Wash them twice. Once with the
diluted Blue Dawn. Rinse it out completely. Then wash
with the LA shampoo and rinse thourghly.
THROUGH OUT THIS
WHOLE PROCESS KEEP IN MIND HOW WARM YOU ARE
KEEPING THEM. DO NOT GET THEM TOO HOT, ESPECIALLY
WITH THE HAIR DRYER..
RINSING. Each time you rinse
it has to be completely. Rinse and then when you
think you are done RINSE
some more. Not good to leave soap in
their hair. They will lick it off and it will dry
their skin out.
Drying after the bath -
