I am very sorry about the 4 spelling mistakes in my post that made it so hard to read, it was 2am and I have dyslexia so I normally use spell check, thanks for bringing it up though, I will use it more often to make them easier to read. Its strange that you only picked out my post when the other posts said the same thing? I am not forcing my opinion, just stating a fact, there was no ticking off sorry you read it that way, no attack or being nasty All I said you have done a great job and kittens should go at 12weeks of age, you said that a good compromise would be 9 ½ weeks, and you are not a back yard breeder or breeder. I said I know you arent, you took the kittens in so made it your duty of care to do the best for them, you have done a great job. If that makes you not want to post & close a thread before I can respond to your last post, then I am not sure what to say, as all the other posters said the same! No need to justify your kitten going early, as I said its totally up to you what you do with them, just give you the fact that its too early to leave, what you do with that information up to you! Gave you lots of advice on the kittens and replied to your other posts, I didnt see you want to leave after those posts? Anyway good luck.
