Hi everyone, I will be bringing home a female persian kitten in about another month or so. She is currently 7 weeks old and still with the breeder and her sibling. Its been many years since I have had a kitten and she will currently be the only kitten in the home. I have been shopping like crazy buying everything that the breeder suggested plus more but I am open to any suggestions or advise. The breeder suggested a small open-top litterbox but I had purchased the booda clean step covered litterbox which I'm thinking is too big and I'm not sure if she will even like it so I was thinking about just getting a plain small litterbox to start her out and maybe try to transition her when she is older, what do you all think? The picture is her at 6 weeks old and I haven't thought of any names for her yet

She is beautiful!!

Congratulations.

I dont have any recommendations on litter size boxes, just that it be easy for her to access and spacious so she can turn around easily and has fresh litter to use between cleanings (which should be at least daily).

I would also get low dust litter as those tiny lungs will be delicate.

What a sweetheart! Since you are going to transition her to the other box, I would have both out. She may surprise you and use the other. Find out what litter they are using too. Make sure you have a corrugated cardboard scratcher for her.
Make sure you are ready for behavior, it is nonstop from morning till night, and that your home is kitten-proofed with no dangerous things she can get into. Other than that, all she needs is good food and you! PS I put in the name Zoey.....

Oh she's gorgeous!!! Welcome to the both of you! :wave3:

I agree with di and bob di and bob . Leave both boxes out and she will decide which one she likes best. The rule for litter boxes is one per cat plus one extra so she may end up using both. My two cats have five litter boxes and they all get used.

For a name, I will go to the other end of the alphabet and suggest April or Alexis. She's so pretty! :cloud9:

Hi! Did you get your beautiful little kitten yet?
No I do not have her yet the breeder just said that I will be able to bring her home at the end of June. The anticipation is so hard to deal with that I have just been buying more and more things for her online everyday. She is definitely going to be spoiled.

I just realized I accidentally registered twice! When on my phone I’m logged in as Reina’s kittens but on my computer I’m My Furry Angels. Oops! Lol
