You may buy your own items, but we cannot reimburse you for any purchases. Remember that all items must be able to be washed and sanitized or thrown away after each litter of kittens. Here are some ideas you might find helpful

  • Old blankets or towels that are not frayed

  • If you do not have a spare room to contain kittens, you will need a cage

  • Mild dish soap (e.g., Dawn) or baby shampoo

  • Hypoallergenic baby wipes

  • Paper towels

  • Fine strainer (to run formula through to remove lumps)

  • Beds & cat scratchers are luxury items that may need to be thrown away if contaminated by illness
