A couple of weeks ago I reserved 2 rescue kittens. They're still with their mum at the moment and will come to live with me at the beginning of June.

BUT the same shelter have now got 2 10 month old sisters and they're so loving and affectionate.

Would I be unreasonable to tell them I've changed my mind and adopt the 2 sisters rather than the kittens? I assume the kittens will be snapped up anyway because they're kittens.

Don't think yabu. They will probably have a waiting list for kittens. Give them a ring and ask.

I've just sent a message to the woman who fosters them. Will see what she says. I'm obviously happy to have either pair but she's posted videos of the 10 month old ones and they look so friendly and gentle. I have a toddler so think they might fit in better than small kittens.

I can't see the problem and it sounds really sensible to me .

I don't think YABU.

Baby kittens are more likely to find a home than elder cats. And I think older kittens will be better suited to toddlers.

Can you put 1' deep shelves up, with carpet glued on for the kits to have some away time from your toddler? Failing that, a good solid cat tree.

Ensure you have plenty of fishing rod type toys, to keep needle sharp teeth and claws away from little fingers.

I'd imagine they'll breathe a sigh of relief. smile Give them a quick buzz.

Ah, Sorry - I see you've messaged her.

It sounds fine to me. smile

I've ordered a huge cat tree and have shelves they can jump onto so they have lots of places to escape to. Fingers crossed she gets back to me tomorrow smile
