It is really good of you to keep cat and find homes for the kittens.

We have a scratching post because ours does try to scratch the carpet. We feed 1.5 pouches of whiskas a day divided morning and night and always leave dried food and water out too. How much food will depend on cats weight. Iím sure the rescue group will let you know what they have been feeding them.
We find the really cheap Tesco own brand litter to be the most absorbent. Also a nice cozy cat bed with quite high sides. Cat nip toys.

We have 6 scratch post plus 4 cat trees for 3 cats & two sofa corner scratch guards. Plus various flat cardboard scratch mats scattered around.

We use Cats Best Original cat litter - buy online from Zooplus, Bibta,etc. Paws donít smell of wee, it clumps so easy to clear, it does drag on their feet but not as bad as the wood pellet litter we had originally.

Food - depends on budget. We use a combo of purina Perle/Mon petit/ gourmet tins. Cat with sensitive tum on purina proplan delicate wet pouches. Dry food purina sensitive for them all. We Reduced to two wet meals per day as youngest has inflamed gums and not good with teeth cleaning.

Cats are lovely, enjoy!

Ps these are the trees we have and they are slept in overnight, during the day:

Cat litter- can definitely recommend wood pellets and a sieving tray. Cheap and easy to use plus no smell. And get a scoop.

Food- I raw feed our cat but I would start on some high meat content tins/pouches.
Our cat likes to eat from plates rather than bowls. Their whiskers touch the sides of bowls which they sometimes donít like.

We have a cat tree that has scratching posts as part of it which are really good.

Then our cat loves fleece blankets and cardboard boxes to sleep/hide in.

They really donít need much and take care of themselves as long as you feed them.

Cat servant for over 50 years.
Cardboard boxes for play & one with a blanket for sleeping in.( cat beds ignored).
Large litter tray with a hood & whichever litter they are used to ( cats are fussy about the "feel" on their feet). We have dry food always available (Sahara likes iams/james wellbeloved & purina). Mon petite pouches. Water in a huge bowl & food on plates as she hates things touching her whiskers. No plastic as risk of acne on cats chins.
We have had cats that used scratching posts & others that opted for carpet. Most used was a 4ft solid post DH made & covered with carpet( cat could stretch full height & never topple it).
Favourite toys are old make-up brushes/rolled up baby socks & anything feathered (sadly includes real birds)..
Microchip & a very solid cat carrier are essentials ( many cats escape on route to the vet) we have a fully metal carrier which is 30+ years & going strong. Cats cannot be vegan/vegetarian due to inability to make taurine without it they develop fatal heart problem but can have veg as a treat if they like, most prefer cheese. You need to check your garden for killer plants ie lillies .
Your cat will soon have you all trained to answer their every whim. Enjoy your new housemates.

Ours use Catsan litter, Purina Dry Food , whiskas pouches, and water in a big bowl ( although they seem to prefer running water out of the tap, soapy water in the bottom of the bath, water in the toilet bowl , and their personal favourite a muddy puddle with a few dead beasties in it.)
They have also totally destroyed two cat trees and have started on the third.

But they are lovely (says MrsPPM)

There is one word you can never say in front of cats... íDreamiesí

I used Catsan but have switched to Amazonís, lasts longer, clumps better ... and smells like baby powder. Itís expensive though.
