1) Which litter sand type is good? I read that there's tofu and all so what do you guys use? I stay in a condo and would like to have as minimal smell as possible.
Using Clay Litter, Do note that clay litter go by Kg and if condo a 12Kg packet not easy to carry. If buy in Bulk say 5 bags of 12Kg will really be a task to carry. I am using OdourLock and seem to does that, lock the odour. Only release smell when scooping and if the cats don't properly buried it. If money no object can always get those automated Litter box that is enclosed. No scooping needed and just bag up and throw. Lucky I have a storeroom at the basement so I can store it downstairs first but I agree with you on the weight being a bitch. LOL, how much are the automated litter box?
2) I am planning to go with dry food ( kibbles ) as much as I can. In terms of general health, any supplements that I should add in? I also read that it's good for them to consume raw food. Am thinking that I can get some raw salmon for cheaps so if it's good for the cat, why not?
Mine free feeding kibble and water in tray and fountain. I let them run free at my Condo. Feeding them those 80gm can. Will mix those 80gm can when buy. So they can have variety. Not buying same flavor only. Mix brand as well for variety. Kibble currently using Leornado. Last time using Blackwood. If money no object.. then Orijen....
Food is always the issue.. 1 of my cat is a fussy eater but luckily I have another that eat everything. So the fussy one if don't eat I just pass to the other.I was shocked at the price of Orijen but getting 5.4Kg seems to be more worthwhile and assuming the cat eats about 80g a day, it can last for 2 months which is okie I guess.
3) How often do they really scratch? I have things on the ground that I really don't want it to be scratched as it's expensive so am trying to figure out how to avoid it.........
Part and parcel of having cat... they need to scratch. For me I live with it. Have all the scratching post and stuff. Cats can be mischievous so need to scold a bit. I don't mind some stuff being destroyed by them, also get those suppose to be cat proof... Will prolly get a scratching pad or post. I have floorstanding speakers which I don't know how to scratch proof it. lol. My sofa is about destroyed anyway so they can do what they want with the sofa
4) Vaccine, what is compulsory? How often to deflea/deworm?
Refer to your Vet. Mine all indoor so very little issue with Flea and worms...
Thanks for the reply.
