Choosing a commercial cat food:
When searching for the right food for your cat just remember that cats are obligate carnivores. They
are evolutionarily designed to be the ultimate predator for small game. Do not buy a food because it says "Ragdoll" on it. Ignore the clever advertising and read the ingredient label.
A cat needs a ratio of meat, organ meat, bone, and certain minerals, and that is about it for what they absolutely need (because they are obligate carnivores). So, look at the ingredient list for those items to be listed FIRST (that which appears first in the ingredient list makes up the bulk of the food).
Unnecessary ingredients include: grains, thickening agents, added flavors, coloring and preservatives. These items bring the cost down which is why they are considered "fillers". So, if cost is a concern than those items will likely be present in your choice of food, so just remember: Rule of thumb: focus on the top 3 ingredients and try to keep them as (meat, organs, bone).
Pet food brands to consider for your Ragdoll cat:
Click on the company name in bold to be directed to website
Nulo limited cat/kitten food is an American brand that offers the best quality dry food per cost on the market currently.
It is sold exclusively at Petsmart stores, also on Chewy.com & some on Amazon.
Orijen cat food is a Canadian brand. Canadian pet food quality standards are higher than American.
Fromm is a great American company that offers dry and wet food. The cost point is driven down by healthier "fillers" such
as limited amounts of fruit, vegetables, and some products have starches like sweet potato.
This company offers incentive programs
for cat breeders.
Ziwi Pets is a New Zealand brand that offers "air-dried cat food" which they claim is a healthy alternative to raw diets.
The product quality seems higher than the American standard, and so does the price.
Kitten families: you will receive a preparation PDF when your kitten turns 11 weeks old.
It will detail what your kitten is eating so that you can prepare before your kitten goes home.
Water fountains are a must. Some cats will flat out refuse to drink stagnant water no matter how fresh. This fountain is affordable and holds up well.
I absolutely love this product. I have used Feliway for several years and
I keep these in every room.
good for introducing new cat to multi-cat household
Raised food bowls help reduce the incidence of
regurgitation. I highly recommend
feeding your cat from raised bowls.

Litter Box Supplies
All cats and kittens use World's Best litter in our cattery. It is 100% natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, scent-free with zero dust. Please consider all of these elements when choosing a litter for your cat and household, because all of you will be sharing the same air! I recommend the red bag.
I really love this litter by World's Best Cat
you can find it at Walmart (click on photo for link). This litter is good for Stud males, queens, kittens, and cats that are being litter or litter box transitioned. Also for cats that will not use the box. I like the quality of this litter as well. It is also dust free, biodegradable, scent-free, and 100% natural.
This is an herbal litter attractant that I use on my 3 week old kittens for litter training. It works! I have also used it to get adult cats to use new litter boxes.

Update June 2021:
We have begun the transition back to a raw diet.
This transition is limited to our adult cats at this time, and will not apply to our Summer 2021 kittens.
As a sanitary precaution & convenience to our adopters, our kittens will remain on a conventional diet.
