The bed should be a place where the cat will feel safe. Cats prefer round beds where they can roll up into a ball. Place the bed in a secluded place, preferably away from domestic noises, to give your cat maximum peace of mind. It is possible that the cat won’t use the bed or choose something completely different: a soft blanket or a pillow. How to prevent that from happening? Sometimes it is enough to move the bed to a place chosen by your cat. If you encounter problems during adaptation and your cat finds it difficult to adapt to the new location, Dr Seidel adaptive preparations containing equivalents of natural pheromones can help. They have a calming and soothing effect on cats and provide a sense of security, especially in difficult situations, such as disconnection from the mother, change of environment, visit to the vet, travel, storm, fireworks, etc. Adaptive preparations are available in various forms: evaporator plugged into an electrical outlet, collar or spray.
Any caregiver of a cat will also need a carrier. It will serve as a safe way of transporting your pet in a car or carrying it outside the house. If your cat is going to take walks it is worth buying a leash and a collar as well and start learning to walk on a leash as early as possible, between 3–6 months of age.
