I'm expecting her in January, I'm pretty prepared, I do need to find a good scratch post though so any recommendations welcome!

What do you think :D Any idea what she could look like when she's older?


Here's most of the stuff I have purchased, spent most of the evening setting up the box yesterday but I can take the tray out if she is not happy at the start, Need to buy bigger bowls didn't think they would be so small! Also purchased a more cosy and warmer cave bed but it has not arrived yet

Also share your photos!

Beautiful. I really like her.

Here some thoughts on scratching posts:

We have this one - I like the look of it. One of our Bengals really likes it; the other likes to stretch high; so doesn't use it (though he did when younger).

That one likes this scratching post:

He hasn't managed to destroy it yet!

You definitely need a tall cat tree. Most have sisal rope that they will use as a scratching post, but there are hundreds of different scratchers out there. You can NEVER have too many of them. It will help save your furniture a lot! Note, even if your kitty cannot jump up onto the areas of the cat tree, the sisal rope helps them climb up.

Your baby is beautiful. Her coloring and rosettes are already gorgeous. Karen is a great breeder, so I know you will be happy with her kittens.

Thank you ontario , I love the first post you linked, very cool that it can also go on the wall, I may just get that!

Thanks again sherry :) I've been looking at a few high trees but wasn't sure which materials are best.
I was looking at this one but can't seem to find the materials http://m.zooplus.co.uk/shop/cats/scratc ... _cm/186607

That looks like an awesome cat tree. The main thing is that you have a spot for it. Some trees are huge. Raiden has three cat trees and his favorite is the Armarkat tree. I notice Amazon in the UK sells some. They are well made and mine has yet to tip it over even when he runs full steam and jumps up. I don't know if Mollie and Friends has trees in the UK, but they are expensive, yet sturdy and VERY well made. The third three I have is from North American and it was more expensive than the Armarkat and it tipped over every time Raiden jumped on or of it, so we had to put a much larger base on it. Read up on any reviews. I know you can go crazy just looking at a hundred cat trees and wonder which one your kitty will enjoy the most. But, I don't think cats are particular. If they can climb it, they love it.

Lovely kitty!

Whatever cat tree you purchase, I recommend getting extra sisal rope from the hardware store to re wrap it periodically as her claws tear into it.

Thank you :) I thought sisal rope was a special type of rope on different cat trees, that's why I was looking for the materials silly me!

I have some updated photos to share from my breeder :cool:
