Q: Are ragdolls less allergenic than other cats? A: No.
Q: What should I feed my kitten? A: Buyers will be advised of current food and litter prior to pickup. Changing the brand/flavor of food should be done ONLY after the kitten has completed the acclimation process. Food must be changed gradually, over a period of 2 weeks. Diarrhea will likely result if feeding instructions are not followed.
Q: What kind of litter box is best? A: We use uncovered litter pans. A kitten in a single-cat household can easily learn to use a hooded pan, if desired, but these should be avoided in multi-cat households, because cats like to ambush a cat that is exiting the box. Instead, a clear storage container with entry/exit holes drilled into the sides is a good option, and very economical. If your cat won't use the litterbox, pu an uncovered litterbox containing Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract, in a low-traffic, quiet place, add an extra litterbox if you have more than 1 cat, and avoid using strongly scented cleaners to clean the box (like disinfecting wipes).
Q: My cat doesn't cover his/her waste. What can I do? A: I don't think there is anything you can do. If a pelleted litter is use, maybe try something that is easier to dig in, like World's Best Cat Litter, silica litter, or regular clay litter.
Q: Can I just feed dry food? A: I would not advise this, especially if you have a male cat. The risk of blockage or urinary tract infections is too great. Some moist food in the form of raw or canned food daily is advised. Always provide fresh water.
