    Please don't purchase kittens from a backyard breeder, particularly a half Bengal. Please go to a rescue or a registered breeder.

    Without knowing the kittens personalities it's hard to say. Generally, however, kittens do get on. Make sure you do not take them until they are 13 weeks so they have received appropriate socialisation from their respective mums.

    Sadly as we keep seeing, people don't care about the kittens or supporting responsible breeding or rescue.
    They want what they want, and who cares about the kittens critical needs.

    Im sorry about that but we live in a place which doesn't have many rescue shelters. Also, the ones that are nearest to us are closed due to COVID-19.

    Then wait, the same as everyone else. There is now urgency to get a kitten now, particularly when it's detrimental to the kitten's welfare

    I have just had a look as to my nearest shelter and appears the youngest cat is 6 years old. As my children would like a kitten, this is not what i am looking for. Thanks anyway for your time in answering my question. Will keep your advice in mind for the next time.

    We are right at the beginning of kitten season, there will be ample kittens available soon. Surely it would be better to teach your children the value of rescuing and providing a home for an abandoned cat than a kitten who will be removed from mum too soon and come with behaviour issues because of that

    Clearly you're more interested in money and giving into your kids' demands than kitten welfare.

    Be patient. Ask in local community groups for recommendations to small rescues that use foster homes. There will be kittens, and you may have a short wait, but you will be supporting something ethical rather than someone making money off their cats

    Be aware that that website is not an exhaustive list of rescues, but it is a place to start.
