I'm getting a new kitty in a few weeks.. she's a little older (about 7 years old) and I want to make her some stuff so she feels as spoiled as possible.. She's coming from a cattery that has about 25 cats, and she's "retired" (from cat shows and breeding) so now it's her turn to be spoiiled Smiley  (Not to worry...the cattery she's coming from doesn't use cages for cats...they pretty much have their own section of the house)  I think she has to be the prettiest maine coon I've ever seen, and I want her to feel as welcome in my home as possible.  Any suggestions?  I haven't had a cat in a long time, so I can't think of what to get or make (besides the essentials.. litter box, food..) I was thinking about making her some toys, but I don't know...

Definitely get some Feliway, perhaps the diffuser. It really helps chill kitties out when they are dealing with changes & stressors. Toys would be good, catnippy ones... Giving her a snuggly bed and a cat post with a view are great things too... enjoy your new girl!

Maine Coons are so beautiful! 
The Feliway stuff might be a good idea.  It was recommended to me by my vet when I brought home a new kitty and my other kitty wasn't too keen on the idea.  It imitates happy kitty pherenomes or something.  You can get it at most pet supply stores, like PetsMart. 
Other than that, you're on the right track.  She might like a kitty bed to hunker down in.  And she may hide for awhile.  She'll need a brush.  And most kitties like some treats!
Good luck!

Join the cat swap! 

I'm just excited that I get to be in one.  hehe.

I'm too lazy (and half-busy, for once, at work) to find the thread... I think today is the last sign-up day!

I'm definitely getting some of this stuff.. she's an older kitty (7 years old) so the transition might be a little hard on her.  Hopefully, the breeder will get back to me soon.  I emailed her a couple of days ago after visiting the cattery, but I still haven't heard back from her.  I know she's a super busy lady, but I'm a little nervous.  I'm so excited about getting a purebred maine coon at the same cost of getting a kitty at a shelter, and the kitty is so sweet.. I just don't want this to fall through.  I need a little "pet therapy" to help with being depressed.. The thought of a kitty with bunny soft fur who wants to cuddle all the time makes me happy.. kinda like that feeling you get before Christmas when you're a little kid Cheesy

ahh, there.. i vented.  sorry Sad
