Hi everyone! I was hoping that I could get some advise about Kittens. First off with in the last few months our family has lost 2 cats. The first was last fall when Beaker who was 17 became ill and had to be put to sleep then our other cat Sammy 16 years old got out and was hit by a car the day before Easter. Both were great cats and I miss them both. Fun thing is that they were my wife's cats before we were married and I alway complained about those damn cats! My wife new better! Any way the loss of these 2 dear pets really p;ayed hard on our 3 daughters and shortly after we lost Sammy a friend/neighbor told us that her cat had just had a litter of 5 kittens and if we were interested we could have as many as we liked. Well after a few visits we picked 2 of the kittens. A cute torty calico and an orange and white Tabby. My question is how old should they be before we bring them home? They will be 6 weeks old on April 29th and we had always heard that 6 weeks was the best time to bring them home, but a book that my wife and I read stated that kitten should be no less then 8 weeks old before they are seperated from thier mother! What do you feel we should do? Get them at 6 weeks or wait until they are 8 weeks?
