how to choose a kitten

If you’re thinking of adding a kitten to your home, you’ve probably wondered how to choose a good kitten. There’s so many adorable Maine Coon kittens for sale that it’s hard to make a decision. Only you know what type of stimuli that the kitten, and the kitten becoming an adult cat has to endure. You want to make sure that the kitten has the right personality and temperament to blend well in your home.

The way Maine Coon Adoptions are handled these days, it’s almost impossible to have the luxury of meeting a kitten before you adopt much less getting to know the kitten. In most cases, you’ll merely have to decide by photos that the breeder is posting on social media or sending to you. They may or may not include a narrative about the kitten’s individuality.

In most cases, this works out well and everyone is completely happy with their decision. Sometimes, however, a different kitten may have suited them better. This is where having more insight on the kittens is tremendously helpful.

Matching Maine Coon Kittens with Their New Guardians

Sassy Koonz is adopting a new process to help you choose the right kitten. Effective February 1, 2021, Approved Guardians will now be able to review a personal bio (assessments) on each kitten’s page! Adding this feature will enhance your buying experience with Sassy Koonz, and give you even more of the confidence that you need to help make a decision.

These kitten assessments will certainly not lay down the stones for how the kitten will be once he grows up and matures, but a reflection of how the kitten is at the time I’m observing him. Your kitten will grow and change so much in the first 3 years that it’s quite fascinating. Their temperament will be kitten-like for at least one year, and then you’ll notice some maturity and calmness start to settle in. The individuality of each cat will change over time. The kitten assessment might offer a glimpse into the heart and mind of the Maine Coon kittens that are being raised here at Sassy Koonz.

Keep in mind that at 4 weeks old, they’re still wobbly on their feet and have just started to gain some independence by leaving the nest. This is a good time for me to start observing so that you can make a more informed decision. At 8 weeks I’ll start the documentation process on their web pages.

The first kitten assessment will be done at 8 weeks old. By this age, I can really see some differences in the kittens. These assessments will help you choose a good kitten for you. Noone knows the kittens better than I do. You’ll get some first-hand insight. <3
