The goal of a serious breeder is to have every generation of cats be an improvement on the one before it. However, as you have stated this litter is not pedigreed, then I feel certain you will be having this kitty spayed as soon as possible after the kittens are weaned.
While the following normally apply to breeders of pedigreed cats, most all of these things can also be applied here...hope this helps.
My best to you,
The breeder does not sell kittens before a minimum age of 3 months AND 2 pounds in weight. (This applies mainly to breeders of Siamese cats).
The breeder does not sell kittens without a contract which details what the breeder expects of the buyer, and what the buyer should expect from the breeder. No kitten from an ethical breeder should EVER end up in a shelter -- the kitten/cat should ALWAYS be welcomed back by the breeder.
The breeder does NOT sell kittens without vaccinations and a written form of health guarantee, nor will a kitten be allowed to leave if it is not well or the breeder has any concerns about it at that time. In addition, many breeders will provide a certificate that the kitten has been tested for FeLV and is negative.
The breeder is always available to answer questions and assist the new kitten owner whenever possible.
The breeder carefully screens potential buyers, and will refuse to sell a kitten to an inappropriate buyer. Not everyone understands the special traits and personalities of cats, and an ethical breeder will explain the breed's quirks to a potential buyer so that this person fully understands what they are like and what to expect. If the kitten's personality and activity level is NOT what the potential owner wants, it is important to weed these people out during the screening process. More people are screened out than ever get to buy a kitten.
The breeder sells pet quality kittens with a neuter/spay contract or sells these kittens already neutered or spayed, a practice which is becoming common in areas where the vets are progressive enough to practice early neutering/spaying. In no event, will a pet-quality kitten be sold with breeding rights, nor will an ethical breeder sell a breeder-quality animal to someone who does not follow the same ethical guidelines on breeding that this breeder practices.
The breeder will, in the screening process, ask a potential owner personal questions such as:
Do you own your house or rent; if you rent, I will need a statement from the landlord that animals are OK.
If you currently own animals, who do you use as a vet and what is his phone number?
Have you owned a cat before; if not, do you understand their temperament and needs?
If you have other cats, are they allowed outdoors?
Are those cats declawed?
Do you have very young children in your house?
Do you intend to breed?
Since we wish our kittens to have a good, stable home for life, what would you do if you had to move - look for a place which allows animals or give up the cat?.
These are only a few of the questions that should be asked.
