    Need some advice. We are looking at buying two kittens. I know they need a settling period but we are away for Xmas (2 weeks) . I lost my two 18 yr old cats last year so my family is badly missing feline company. Do you think it's ok to buy now or after the holiday? An idea wud be to put them in a local cattery or is that just not right straight away?

    wait til after christmas. it's only 6 weeks away. i don't think it's really fair to get them now knowing that you've got a fortnight away coming up so soon.

    use the six weeks to look for your ideal kittens and get everything sorted out, and then after christmas and your holiday you'll be all ready to welcome your little ones into your home :)

    Yes that's what we have decided. We have found two gorgeous kittens so just keeping fingers crossed they will be there in new year. It wouldn't be fair on them otherwise. X
