Kitten care

Kittens can make incredibly good pets but they have very specific needs. Before you buy a kitten you need to be sure you have the space, time and money needed to raise a happy, healthy cat.

Kittens can live up to 20 years or more‚ that is a huge commitment. You need to make sure you are willing and able to pay for veterinary bills, food, toys and enrichment throughout your cat's lifetime. Think about whether you'd like to buy a pedigree kitten from a trusted breeder, or rehome a rescue kitten.
