Thank you for purchasing a Reginamur Bengal ! The following are important guidelines on how to take care of your Reginamur Bengal.
We recommend for you to keep your kitten in a small area for the first couple days (a bathroom or a bedroom) with food, water and litter box. A kitten may cry for the first 48 hours or hide under the bed or other small, dark spaces. If your Bengal was shipped, please show kitty extra love and attention, hold the baby in closed comfort.
Litterboxes. Do not place the litter box in the laundry room or another floor of the house – the kitten will not find it! The more litter boxes the better! At least for the first month while the kitten is adjusting to its new home. Our kittens are litter trained when they leave us, but we have found that in some very rare cases, some kittens find it harder to adjust to their new home, become confused and have accidents when they arrive at their new home. Please be patient with your kitten.
Do not use an automated litter box for your Bengal until they are at least 6 months old.
Or you can use Fresh Step Crystals Cat Litter that completely removes the smell. It quickly absorb moisture and stop odor better than the leading clay litter. Lightweight crystals make transport and box changing a breeze which will make you.
FOOD. We are currently feeding our kittens with ROYAL CANIN KITTEN. If you planning to use another brand, you will need to slowly mix it in the new brand dry food. We occasionally feed them with boiled chicken breasts. You can give your kitten a can once a day (half a can in the morning and half at night). When kitten becomes older, you can increase the food amount(one can in the morning and one can at night). We recommend you to use PURINA PRO PLAN\focus \kitten or ROAYL CANIN\kitten.
Dry food should be alway available for the kitten (just make sure that the bowl is always full with dry food).
SUPPLEMENT. While the kitten is adjusting to its new home, we recommend supplementing its diet with L-lysine, that helps boost their immune system and make them less susceptible to infection. We give our kittens NUVET PLUS, which we get from www.nuvetplus.com. We give this to them before they leave our cattery, to help protect him/her from infections while they adjust to their new environment. We, also add other vitamins to food that help kittens grow strong and healthy.
