all my new things have come for my kitten today and all set up ready and waiting.

Was supposed to have her tomorrow but the breeder has messaged me saying that she is not 100% confident that the kitten is ready due to picky eating so giving it an extra few days.

Wish I could pick her up now lol.

How old is she now?

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 20:47:52

She is 7 weeks and been waiting forever. The breeder don't rehouse the kitten in weeks she rehoused when the kittens are ready.

I swear being overdue was quicker than waiting for miss kitty cat.

Hah! I've never had a Siamese from their breeder in less than 12-14 weeks!

7 weeks is pretty young - she'll do much better for being a little longer with Mum. smile

What colour is she?

Don't forget the pics smile

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 20:58:23

I know just getting rather broody for her now.

I have taken her a blanket and a few toys so will bring a familiar scent home.

It's just a waiting game now

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 20:59:30

The only one I got.

cozietoesie Wed 05-Aug-15 21:01:44

Oh she's a real sweetie. smile

chockbic Wed 05-Aug-15 21:01:57

Good idea about leaving things with her.

She is lovely.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 21:09:05

I already have her insured and booked her in with a vet my mil has used for decades.

The vet had 1 space available as it's got a good reputation so grabbed it.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 21:54:45

Update had a message saying she is getting very playful.

cozietoesie Wed 05-Aug-15 21:57:17

smile Keep cool.

She looks a very intelligent cat. I'd leave her with mum until 8 weeks.

You cant beat a mum wash and hug.

She is exquisite. Mind you, I would be frothing already to get her at home, so although she's in the right place, I sympathise.

When an old friend got a huge ginger cat, I woke up at 6am for 10 days running with excitement. And texted her in hope - think that is the definition of oversharing.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Wed 05-Aug-15 22:08:50

I knew I should of waited till get the things.

I have already spent £200 on her and she is not even home yet.

Still got to get food but going to wait till I know when she is coming.

Piper she is gorgeous!

You are lucky she has such a good breeder looking out for her. My 7 week old kitten, although good now, has had me terrified over every tiny thing, as I am scared she will suddenly not make it! Although she is very cute and tiny, it has made me realise just how vulnerable they are at this age. I am sure my little one would have benefitted from some more time with mum, but it wasn't to be!

I am now totally in love with her already though so completely understand your impatience smile not long now grin

7 weeks is too young to separate a kitten from its mother. What kind of 'breeder' are they?

BeautifulBatman Thu 06-Aug-15 05:32:07

Is the cat a particular breed? It's very cute but just looks like a domestic moggy to me.

Hurr1cane Thu 06-Aug-15 07:37:52

I'd be very wary of taking one home under at least 8 weeks, even if they're ready as in eating and litter training they still have to learn social skills off their mum.

BeautifulBatman Thu 06-Aug-15 07:44:04

Exactly hurr1cane - just because a kitten is weaned it doesn't mean it's ready to leave. That's why I'm questioning the 'breeder'.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Thu 06-Aug-15 22:54:35

She is a very good breeder. She will not let the kittens go until the kitten is ready.

She think it may be another week yet.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Thu 06-Aug-15 22:58:16

I think it's a domestic cat.

BeautifulBatman Fri 07-Aug-15 09:51:53

If they're just domestic moggies, why is she breeding at all??? Are there not enough homeless cats in rescues already? Where did you find her, gumtree???

SacredHeart Fri 07-Aug-15 09:56:08

My kittens came to me at 14 weeks and only when they were really ready. Between 6-14 they learn to socialise, not bite, not use claws etc (as their siblings will cry when they do).

Moreover at 13 weeks my babies were still nursing off mum for comfort. I personal I would be pushing for as close to 14 weeks with their mother - in the long run it will help the cat be happy, confident and reduce the need to bite and scratch train.

The wait is tough but it is all the process of getting a beautiful, happy companion.

I acquired Oneago at 12 weeks but then he'd been hand-reared and was more than ready to come to me - and the breeder trusted me to continue her work. I have a feeling that 14 weeks is the standard for Siamese breeders nowadays.
