Welcome to our forum. This kitten is spectacular! The pattern is gorgeous. We used to have several breeders who posted regularly, but not any more. Many breeders will "hold" a kitten for their own use to see if they want to use the cat as a future stud or queen. If later on, they feel the cat would not add to their breeding program, they release the hold and someone can purchase the kitten. At only 2-1/2 weeks, you have a long while before you honestly have to make that decision. By that time, I'm sure you will know for certain. I'm guessing you will keep him.
