Picky RagaMuffin Kittens Eaters


Dealing with Finicky RagaMuffin Kittens and Rotation Diets

Many of us talk about our finicky felines and what picky eaters cats are.  While cats do have a reputation for being finicky, it is likely that we have contributed to causing such finicky behavior.


Rule Out Medical Cause

Urine Stains and Odors Caused by Your RagaMuffin Kitty

Removal of Cat Urine Stains and Odors Caused by Your RagaMuffin


First Remove the Cat Urine Stain


cat urine stains ragamuffin kittensAll cats, including RagaMuffin kittens and RagaMuffin cats, can have accidents that leave cat urine stains or vomit stains and odor behind.  It is very important to remove the stain as soon as you discover the spot, especially if it is urine, because you want to prevent your RagaMuffin Cats and RagaMuffin kittens from going back to the same spot and repeating the unwanted behavior.  There are some products that work against both stain and odor at the same time, but there are some useful home remedies for removal of odor that can actually “set” the stain.  An example of this is using vinegar.  Vinegar is used when making colored Easter eggs or tied-dyed shirts in order to set the color.  You sure do not want to use it to set the cat urine stain.  Another thing to avoid is any type of steam cleaning, as this has the tendency to set the stain as well.

RagaMuffin Kittens Bonding

How to Bond with Your RagaMuffin Kittens


RagaMuffin Kittens Adjusting to New Home and Other Pets


ragamuffin kittens adjustingThe slower the better, especially if you have other pets! Cats are territorial and current household cats will not like the newcomer. Introduce them (or introduce your new RagaMuffin kittens to its new home) by isolating your new kitten in a small room, letting the household cat/dog smell the newcomer through the cracks under the door. Feed your new kitten in this room and provide the kitten with his or her own litter box. Show your RagaMuffin the food, water, and litter box.  Do not force your kitten to come to you.  You will have a much easier time having your RagaMuffin kittens adjusting to your home if you allow the kitten to initiate contact.  Wait until your kitten is comfortable with you before picking the kitty up for cuddles.  Spend time with your new kittens in this room, playing and cuddling. This will enable your new kitty to bond with you before he or she is introduced to the other animals or to the larger area of your home. After your RagaMuffin has become comfortable in their room (playing with you and not showing signs of nervousness), gradually allow your new kittens time out of the room, but only with your supervision.  Simply leave the door open in the room where you have been keeping your RagaMuffin kittens and allow the kittens to come out and explore. Never leave your new RagaMuffin alone with other animals until you are certain that they have become friends. This could take several weeks if you have other animals. (more…)

You get to see different breeds, and it is also fun to watch your kittens being judged. Bring along a friend (maybe one with their own RagaMuffin to show) and you can have an enjoyable day or two at a cat show.

The first thing you need to learn before showing your RagaMuffins kittens is how to properly bathe and groom them for a show. This article will give you the information you need to get your RagaMuffin in tip-top show condition. You should always give your RagaMuffin kittens a show bath before a show. The judges do notice if a cat is not properly groomed and it reflects poorly on the RagaMuffin breed. Don’t assume just because your RagaMuffin kittens or RagaMuffin cats are not dirty, that they are fine to show without a show bath. The judges will look to see whether your RagaMuffins received the grooming that they expect of any cat being shown. (more…)
