Q: If I want to buy a kitten, how old should it be?

A: Never buy a kitten younger than 8 weeks old. The first eight weeks of their lives need to be spent with their mother and siblings, and during this period, they are very fragile. Buying a kitten that’s between 8 and 12 weeks old is the ideal age, because they’re old enough to be on their own, yet young enough that you can teach them and enjoy the cute wonder of kittenhood.
