I think the standard amongst breeders is 12 weeks normally.....

I'm sure Meemonkey will be along shortly to confirm 8)

We let ours go at 13-14 weeks and not a day before! :wink: (depends on the vets appointment schedule really)

You can really have a kitten home at about 8-10 weeks, but I wouldn't recommend it purely because it can't of have had all of its vacinations untill 12 weeks.

Even after its jabs the breeder should keep the kitten for atleast another week just to make sure everything is fine, and then back to the vets for a final check-up before the new owners arrive. In total our kittens have 3 vet checks as a rule before they leave us.....If your in the UK you'll find this is the rule for all reputable breeders as most will of signed up to a breeders code of ethics (depending which club they are members with) and to be honest you shouldn't accept anything less!

But hey....it sounds like you have found a great breeder so you'll have no worries about health or socialisation issues.....most good breeders will actively encourage visits over the waiting period! :wink:

Good luck....can't be long now!
