Hi, my first post, know very little about kittens or cats, but am learning fast. A friend of mine ( not an expert cat owner) obtained an adult female cat from our local RSPCA shelter late last year and was told by the RSPCA that she had been spayed, however turns out she hadn't been and first time out she became pregnant, which my friend was not aware of until she became concerned that she was putting weight on, got confirmed by the vet and 2 days later she gave birth to 4 kittens. RSPCA very apologetic when they were told and offered to take he cat and her kittens if my friend couldn't cope with them but she decided to carry on caring for them until they were weaned and they have been fine, The RSPCA have said they will take all the kittens for rehoming . My query is that I have decided to take one of the kittens, I did not know when kittens should leave their mother and neither did my friend really, but the RSPCA have said to her that they will take them at 6 weeks, when my friend queried this as being a bit young, after doing some research on the matter, they said its fine as they like to get them as cute as possible for rehoming! as it happens my friend has found homes for all 4 herself and all the other new owners are taking them at 7 weeks old so she wants me understandably, to take mine, but after reading on here that this is too young I am a bit worried, Do you think the RSPCA are being a bit irresponsible???
