Exotic Shorthair Cats, Shorthair Persians
The complete balanced diet for a cat is a mouse or bird. In the wild, they would eat the whole thing, bones, innerds and all. If you feed raw meat, you are lacking calcium, and might want to add this. It might be smarter to provide food especially made for cats. Don't use dog food because that isn't good for cats and is made using different nutrients. Don't feed cows milk, as cats don't have the enzymes to digest milk and will get diarrhea until they get accustomed to it.
If you are buying a kitten, find out what it's been fed up to now and provide the same thing to start with. Don't change the diet over-night, but gradually, if you're going to change it, or diarrhea could occur. Purchase quality no-grain food. Kitten food is appropriate the first year.
Provide a sturdy ceramic water bowl (or two) with straight sides so they don't tip it over. The water bowl should be cleaned and filled daily. Clean, fresh water available at all times is essential to a healthy cat.
If you feed wet canned food, make sure they have a good quality dry cat food available also, as this will help keep their teeth clean.
Other items needed are:
A litter Pan or two
Cat Bed or box
Cat Comb and Slicker Brush
Places to hide and feel secure
You will need a carrier when transporting your kitty in the car to a veterinary appointment. Make the carrier a friendly place where she can hide. Leave the door open so she can go in and out.
If she is accustomed to the carrier it won't be a frightening place when you need it for transporting. I personally like the soft-sided carriers that zip and open on top. Cats can look out through the mesh sides. A small hand-towel can be placed over the padding on the bottom. These are also approved as airline "carry-ons" when you fly, and have a detachable shoulder strap with a pocket for strap storage.
