    Hi welcome to Pet Forums

    First thing i would say a litter tray and a big bag of litter i used a kind of sawdust one that when the cat pee'd on it the sawdust expanded and it was clear where he had pee'd.

    A bed.

    A food/Water Bowel

    If you're getting him from a breeder he would have already come wormed and have all his injections up to date.

    All i can think of atm

    Hi and welcome to pf. If you re-post this in the cat chat you will get far more replies from cat owners.
    I have 5 cats.
    Neturing/spaying can be done from around 6 months I believe...some vets do it even earlier but you would have to talk about that with your vet.
    If buying from a reputable breeder there vaccinations would already have been done, along with worming.
    If not then vaccinations at 10 weeks and 12 weeks (thats an estimation the top of my head...)

    essential things you will need....
    litter/litter tray
    bowls
    toys/cat scratching post.

    cant think of much else atm.

    good luck!! :smile:
