Here is the basic starter set of products for new kitten owners:
  1. Wampum Conditioning Shampoo Concentrate
    For 1 kitten, buy the 300 ml bottle: the shampoo dilutes to 1,2 litre, which may last one cat for a year plus.
  2. Magic Rinse for Cats 
    (The Conditioning Rinse Concentrate may also be used)
  3. Greyhound Face Comb (suitable for kittens and when adult, to be used on the face and legs). 
If the kitten tends to knot:
  1. Add Silk Spray Concentrate to the starter pack. 
  2. If you do not have spray bottles, the 50 ml Annie works fine for knots, and the 500 ml trigger spray works well for full body spraying.
