Working through my ignorance with your help.
Aw, now I'm cat hungry again....Been trying to find a kitten for two months, now.(Small rant about the local pounds: Tried getting a kitten through the local pound, but the won't adopt out until the things are nearly adult. As much as I'd like to save a cat from the pound, I'm not going to set it up so that my pet doesn't work out-- I'll get a weaned kitten from the farmer's market at home, instead. What I *want* is to get a kitten that is weaned but still young enough to "think" that it's human-- the "kittens" at the pound are firmly socialized to be around other cats-- which I do not have and will not get. Cats wean at about a month to month and a half; none of the shelters will put them out earlier than two to three months of age. There are rare exceptions, but frankly, I don't want to bank on that-- I want to raise a cat in the aproximate way it will be living. And why, may you ask? As far as I can tell, an international cat fancier group suggests that eight to twelve weeks is the earliest time it's a good idea to adopt out. My folks' house cat is an orphan, and just the sort of cat I want-- she doesn't consider herself a cat. End rant.)
