Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised? Please provide details about how you raise your kittens to ensure that their environmental and social needs are met, that they are suitable as pets. And, do you ensure that the new family understands and is equipped to continue this socialisation?
Indeed, kitten socialisation is of utmost importance to us. We consider it a vital part of raising kittens and preparing them for a life as cherished pets. Our kittens are brought up right by our side, experiencing the hustle and bustle of everyday life from their earliest days. They enjoy a nurturing environment that allows them to interact, explore, and grow both physically and emotionally.
From birth to 10 weeks old, kittens stay with their mother, benefiting from the invaluable lessons in social behaviour and interaction she provides. Once they reach 10 weeks old, their world expands as we introduce them to a dedicated kitten playground. This area, complete with cat trees, scratching posts, and various toys, allows the kittens to socialise with others from different litters, enriching their experiences and helping to build their confidence and adaptability.
Comfort is also a priority, so we include plenty of cosy beds and blankets where they can rest and sleep.
As for prospective new families, we actively involve them in understanding the importance of maintaining a stimulating and enriching environment for their new kitten at home. We ensure they have everything in place and are equipped to continue the socialisation process.
To ensure that our kittens go to caring and responsible homes, we have a thorough application process in place. This process helps us evaluate potential owners and ensure they are well-prepared and committed to providing a loving, long-term home for our kittens.
