Buying a family pet is a big commitment and not something to be rushed into
Take your time to think about the undertaking and try and cover all aspects of the responsibility of owning a kitten.
The Breeder When you have made your decision, you could contact a breeder of your chosen kitten by going onto the breed website. Good breeders will be willing to spend time answering your many questions, not only about cost, but feeding, housing, indoor or outdoor cat, health care and numerous other aspects. Think about the fact that you or your children could have an allergy to cats - it would be preferable to find out beforehand if this is so. Visit a multi-cat household and see if anyone in your family suffers the consequences!
Viewing When viewing a litter of kittens, choose the particular kitten that is right for your circumstances. Are all the kittens strong and healthy? Ask about vaccinations and worming. A new kitten is a wonderful addition to the family, so take your time to make the right choice.
Good breeders should be patient and understanding in answering all of your many questions, but remember they have concerns as well. Having spent time and love in raising their kittens they will want to be re-assured about their future. Choosing the right kitten for you should also involve the breeder, who has known the kittens since birth and can tell you all about their individual ways.
Vaccinations and Insurance GCCF (Governing Council of the Cat Fancy) guidelines say that a kitten should not leave home under 13 weeks of age and that it should be fully vaccinated for at least Cat Flu and Enteritis. We also recommend that kittens be micro chipped. Breeders should also offer full insurance for your kitten for a four week period after purchase, and we strongly recommend that this is continued for at least 12 months.
If there is no-one at home during the day, we do not suggest that you do not have a cat. However, two kittens will keep each other company and be quite happy until you return from work. Please keep kittens in whilst you are at work, and at night as this is when most road accidents occur.
