PRODUCTS WE USE

Here is a list of products and supplies that we use in our home with all of our cats and in raising our kittens. Feel free to continue the use of these items that your kitten is used to, in our home, or use it as a baseline of the supplies that you will need for the maintenance of your kitten / cat.

FOOD

Most of our Ragdolls eat a combination of dry & wet food. Dry food is free-fed, meaning bowls are always full of dry food and available for our cats' convenience to eat or nibble at throughout the day. Wet food is fed 2-3x per day. Please check with me on which food your kitten eats BEFORE buying it.

LITTERBOX

Our experiences using these various litterbox / litters.

We have multiple Litter Robot 3's in our home, and I cannot recommend it enough! Easy to use, keeps the litterbox clean for the cats, frees up my time scooping, and an app to tell me when to change the bag in the waste drawer! It is EXPENSIVE, but well worth it.

These 24x23 bags are a must if you buy the Litter Robot. They are more affordable than the Litter Robot bags, and they come in a box of 250 bags for $25.

Our 2nd favorite box. Clean & minimalist design with an inside liner to change every so often to keep the box free from absorbing long-time odors. Top flips open for easy scooping access, and a built-in scoop holder on the side.

This is a back-to-basics litterbox. Very affordable and what we use for our kittens. Ragdolls will outgrow this box as they get older.

We put the open top litter box (on the left of this) inside this litterbox enclosure. It helps to train them to use closed / covered litterboxes, and it has a great design aesthetically.

This air purifier is expensive, but the coverage is wide. We keep this near our litter boxes and it keeps the air circulating and clean. It has an LED indicated light to tell us if the air quality is good or bad, and it automatically ramps up when the air is bad.

One of our favorite litter mats with little craters that traps all the litter tracked out.

Another favorite litter mat. This is silicone and easily wipeable and vacuumable.

We keep a couple of these Litter Champs around to throw away "cat trash" and empty the bin on trash days.

These are the replacement liners for the Litter Champ.

Our preferred litter to use in our Litter Robot and Modkat boxes. No artificial fragrances, clumps well, and tracking is medium.

Our second favorite litter and often used mixed with Simply Unscented. They are pretty much the same thing.

81qgcpdjWtL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

We use crystal litters when we go to cat shows. Absorbs liquids well. But for regular use, requires tossing + changing every few weeks.

818T-LtaHNL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

We use this with our kittens because it is safe if accidentally ingested. Clumping is weak, so we mix it with Frisco Grass Litter.

We also use this with our kittens and mix it with sWheat Scoop litter. However, this litter tracks a lot, but clumping power is excellent.

We keep a hand vacuum handy near the litter boxes. Easy to vacuum up tracking and keep things neat and clean.

Skout's Honor is really an amazing cleaner. It really cuts through odor using safe and natural ingredients.

We use this occasionally. A light mist in the litter box or Litter Robot keeps odors under control.

When scooping litter, we scoop into these biodegradable poop bags before tossing.

71tkbGFegpL._AC_SS350_.jpg

We had this to our litter box room, so that the cats can come in, but it keeps the dogs out. And it's super cute!

GROOMING

Ragdolls are a long haired cat breed and requiring on-going grooming maintenance. We groom our young kittens with plain regular dawn soap that is diluted in our hands before washing them. As they get older, we use the following grooming products on our older kittens + adults. Honest Baby Wipes come in handy to clean eye boogies, the eyebrow razors are the safest razors we can find to trim rump hair (aka "sanitary trim") without having to take a pair or sharp scissors to their back end, and the butter combs are the best to comb their fur.

Our go-to cleaner. Does an excellent job cleaning and de-greasing the coat.

Our favorite shampoo. We mix this with the dawn soap when soaping up our cats.

71Fyc368exL._AC_SS350_.jpg

For bicolors, this is a must to control the yellowing of the white portion of their coats.

This smells amazing and helps the coat achieve this super silky yet lightweight fluff.

41IvOjmPToL._AC_UL600_SR600,600_.jpg

The final step in our grooming. This helps to wash all the product residue out of the coat.

The Chris Christensen buttercomb is pricey but our favorite comb to groom the cats.

A more affordable buttercomb that does just as good of a job

Our favorite nail clippers. Weekly nail clipping is a must!

612Zcg2FEHL._AC_SY606_.jpg

We use these to help trim the rump hair for sanitary trims.

61nPfpK73mL._AC_SL1191_.jpg

Our blow dryer that we use to blow dry our cats and kittens.

These are a must have around the house. No harsh chemicals and can be used to clean eye boogies or even the occasional hairball.

FURNITURE

Some of the furniture that we have here in our home, our favorites, and in which our cats & kittens enjoy. We prefer and favor wood style cat trees with removable pads for their aesthetic design and so the tree can be easily cleaned (wiped down + pads thrown in the washer routinely -- as opposed to cheap faux fur trees that show wear and tear and build up of layers of cat hair).

Note: You may see "Rustic Kittens Ragdolls" throughout our site and pictures. We are now Kimuradolls Ragdolls, formerly Rustic Kittens Ragdolls. We have changed our cattery name to avoid confusion out there with the three registered Ragdoll catteries that use "Rustic" in the various cattery names. We still own the "RusticKittens" name + cattery registration. Read more here.
