Welcome to the forum.... Cute little fur ball you have there...

Can I just say, for anyone else reading this, it is perfectly normal for moms to start getting annoyed at her kittens at 10 weeks.... It's her way of saying be more independent. But s is essential they remain with the breeder until they have completed the vaccination course. Ths is what is advised and recommended by TICA.

Kittens learn important social behaviours from their siblings and mom right up until 14 weeks of age. Longer if they are together longer. Important acceptable social playing is carried out where they earn what s too much regarding play fighting and biting. They learn correct litter tray etiquette. They grow in confidence as their mom naturally weans herself from them.

Regarding vaccinations, kittens get maternal antibodies within first 24 of life. These naturally start to diminish at 7-10 weeks old. The first vaccination is given at 9 weeks but ths can interfere with the lingering maternal antibodies leaving the kitten vulnerable and so they are not fully covered or fully vaccinated until the 2nd round of vaccination at 12 weeks. It is then recommended to keep the kittens another week to ensure here are no post vaccination problems. So rehoming no earlier than 13 weeks is what is recommended.

I realise this is too late for you but other people may read this and question the breeder wanting to rehome the kittens earlier.

I totally understand, and as I had stated earlier I will be bringing him back to her for a couple days so she can get its final shots and neutering done, just figured it wouldn't do any harm for me to socialize with it for a couple weeks

The point is, he left his safe environment when not fully protected... So it is potentially very harmful this way. He should also stay with the breeder for a week after neutering, I can't imagine the stress this will cause him to go from one house to another, to the vets for surgery etc.... Just would have been far better for the kitten to have stayed put till it was all completed.

Plus, as a breeder there is a great risk in kittens going back into the home after they have left. Not something I would do unless the kitten had to come back then it would be in quarenteen.

Well I guess that's a risk I'm going to take

In Ottawa, need help finding out if anyone has Bengal cats from Bengal Castle or CalypsOpale in Qc, of chatterie les princesses in Cantley. on a budget but concerned about HCM screening. I've visited 3 breeders, the only one who screens for HCM was well above my budget and had no snows. Should I chance it?

You've resurrected a really old post. You probably should have started your own topic on this. If testing for HCM is very important to you, then you'll have to go with a breeder who does the testing. I'm not familiar with any of the catteries you've listed. There may be some reviews you can check through Google.
