Who can resist a round-headed, doe-eyed, fluffy baby kitten? Of course, everyone loves the innocence of brand new baby kittens just starting to toddle about clumsily. However, a small baby kitten might not be the right fit for every family. Sometimes opening your heart and home to a slightly older kitten makes for a smoother transition for the both of you!
The term “kitten” refers to a feline 1 year of age and younger. We consider a kitten between the ages of 5-6 months, up to a year old a “teenager”. There are many positive perks to purchasing an older kitten. New owners of a “teenager” will still be able to form an unbreakable bond with their new feline friend quickly and the transition period is typically the same. We all are aware that new kittens can sometimes play a wee bit rough while they are still taught manners. You could experience a nip or accidental scratch, although rest assured a kitten never means to cause harm. A younger baby kitten might also have some separation anxiety and meow more frequently in an attempt to look for siblings or his/her mom. All of these behaviors are completely normal, and your kitten will be perfectly fine. Learning and adjusting to a newer environment takes time. While you still may wake from the occasional rowdy midnight acrobatics, a teenage kitten displays a calmer, much more relaxed disposition. As they have matured much of the rough and tumble playtime has decreased. They have also learned better manners and require slightly less attention, “baby proofing,” and babysitting overall. Our teenage kittens also come fully vaccinated, and will not need another vaccination until their one year check up:) Not only do we offer a variety of coat colors, we also have kittens of various ages too.
You might be asking yourself “Why?” some kittens are older than others. While all of our kittens eventually find loving forever homes, there are a variety of things to consider. We never know what our customers might be looking for, hence why we offer the largest selection of coat colors. Sometimes we may offer a larger selection of one particular color, although it is sometimes the luck of the draw when breeding. For this reason, it may take longer for all of those kittens to find homes. A lot of the time, we may be contemplating keeping a particular kitten back for a breeder, but we can’t quite make up our minds. We will keep him or her awhile longer to get a better feel for disposition, facial structure, and other important factors. While we believe all of our kittens are adorable gifts from God, each finds a home with time. We believe what is meant to be, will be and finding a kitten a new forever home takes time and careful consideration.
