I would go with Walmart. It's probably a lot cheaper than petsmart and other pet stores. Things you need: food and water bowls food (obviously :) haha) collar and tag litter box litter scratching post (indoor cat?) brush (depending on fur) the toy balls with bells inside there are tons of other types of toys too if you want a lot of variety and different ones, you might have to go to petsmart or petco for that flea medicine (if outdoor) treats nail clippers (opt.) maybe a cat tower? have fun with your new kitten :)

A flea collar won't "wipe out all fleas". It won't do a thing for the fleas in your house and yard, and on a larger dog like yours it won't even keep the fleas off (as you found out). Phone your vet and get something stronger. Some fleas have built immunity to some flea products. And yes, do the massive cleaning--you have eggs all over your home. Takes about 2 weeks on average to hatch. Don't forget to throw out the vacuum bag, or they'll just hatch in your vacuum....

Flea collars are very ineffective. You may wait forever for the fleas to get off your dog. Instead of cheaping it out, buy the good stuff and treat the dog properly. You may have to treat your home as well. After you get rid of the fleas, please use a monthly flea prevention to stop this from happening again. ETA: In order to get rid of them all, you need to have the dog professionally bathed with a flea shampoo, then apply a good quality topical, like Frontline. While the dog is being bathed, you need to be washing all of your linens, your laundry, spraying down your shoes, and bombing your house. You should also bomb the cars, and you can buy a spray for the lawn as well. Frontline is a three month program. In other words, the dog needs to be on it for three months to break the cycle of eggs being lain and hatching. One flea can lay 1000 eggs in minutes. I live on a large wooded property and have seven dogs. No offense to the "natural" methods, but I can't afford to have one flea in my house. I would have to call an exterminator. I use a monthly heartworm medication that protects against many other parasites, including fleas. Have been using it for years, and have never had a flea. Have never had a chemical reaction to it either. My dogs live long lives.

You don't need to purchase toys or food bowls ... any old dish will do. And cats will play with almost anything. Roll up a piece of paper or give them a bag or a box. Start with things like that, then if you happen to come across things in clearance or at a discount store, you can get the cute dishes made for a cat, or some cat toys. I see them marked down regularly, at supermarkets, dollar stores, depatrment stores, etc. A litter box you will need - you can't use a cardboard box because it gets wet. I get the cheapest litter at BJs (one of the 'club' stores, like 'Sams Club'). Clumping is more money but way more convenient. Food is a very difficult one to recommend ... read some of the other questions concerning that, for how to choose a nutritious food. And call around to find the prices for an office visit at different vets. They can be very expensive! Good luck!

Big Bad Baby Twinkle (Madame Humongous -- and she's not overweight-- just BIIIG) sometimes has to eat in the bathroom - a bowl of water (fresh every day) is there-- so is her litter box. I keep the litter box scooped every day -- sometimes twice. If there is enough space between the litter box and the food there should be no problem -- you certainly don't want it close enough for poopy smells -- and you want it far enough away so that litter pieces don't end up in the water or food bowls. Look at the poor little kitties in the cages at the shelters-- their food and water are RIGHT NEXT to their litter boxes -- all the more reason to adopt them and take em home and love em for life.
