Hello everyone. I am in desperate need of asvixe. A neighbour's cat had kittens and she offered to give me one. I saw the kitten and fell in love with him as I have always been a fan of black and white cats. However, I was a bit surprised that she wanted to give the kitten away at 6 week old. Alarm bells rang and a quick Google Search (this forum came up) proved my gut feeling was correct. I asked the lady to keep him for 12 weeks but she refused and said he has to be gone by week 8. I have to pick the kitten up on the 23rd of April. When I went to see the kitten, I was surprised to find out the lady hasn't even attempted to start them on solid. The other owners were happy to collect their kittens at 6 weeks old and only mine is still with mum. When I asked why she hasn't started them on solids, her response threw me off. She said that she has carpets. I am really worried when I take the kitten on the agreed date, he won't eat anything. I also want general advice about which cat litter is safe for kittens, the food that I should start him on and how to litter train him.
