I have done some Google'ing into when is a good time to bring home kittens, and I have read articles where the most common answer is "12 weeks but above 8 and you should be fine".
I also read that if you bring home the kittens a little sooner, it could have pros and cons:
- Pros: the kittens might not have fully accepted their current location as their home, so bringing them home sooner should make the transition easier for them.
- Cons: the kittens learn behavior from their mother at around 12 weeks which they would be deprived of if taken home too soon.
What would be the best age to bring home kittens? Will getting 2 from the same litter reduce the chance of behavioural issues if taken earlier than 12 weeks?
