We keep our kittens for 12 weeks with us at HowLyn Cattery before we release them to their new homes. Sometimes we are asked "Why so long?" Here's our rationale:
- They get the two rounds of vacinations that they need, under our close supervision. We want to make sure that they are given the best care possible to give you the healthiest pet available.
- Their socialization training takes a minimum of 84 days. We want to make sure that your kitten can be handled, knows it's table manners, knows it's paw and claw manners, and has the basics in ballroom dancing down.
- Any shorter time, and Lynn couldn't bear it.
