    Kitten advice and name suggestions

    Hi guys!

    So today, I was offered a kitten! I'll give you a quick backstory to this:

    Ok, I work at a boarding cattery and breeding establishment. My boss has a number of prize winning pedigree british shorthair cats which she breeds. She breeds to better the breed, and gets a lot of business from selling her kittens.

    Today she said she has a kitten that she can't sell and asked me if I would like it for free. She explained that it was born with a little red butt that's kind of swollen. She said that she's had one kitten born like it before that went on to be fine, but because it is not top condition she is not willing to sell it, as she builds her reputation on selling the very best, and they usually sell for quite a bit of money.

    I don't think that she would give me the cat if it was going to have loads of health problems. We have a good relationship and I see her everyday. She has also said that she will have the vet see it before I commit to taking it.

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it? In your opinion, is it unwise to take the kitten or do you think it will be okay? I have plenty of time to decide, the kitten is only 2 days old. It's a little hard to sex it at the moment, but we think it's a boy.

    If I do get it I am open to name suggestions (for either sex to start with). It is a cream tabby pure british shorthair. And it is completely adorable, lol

    Thanks in advance! X

    Doesn't sound bad. If she's willing to take the kitten to the vet and figure out what the issue is and pay for it, then why not?

    Red would be my choice of a name.

    Mbender: Thanks, I thought so too. I just wasn't sure if I was being stupid/crazy taking a kitten with issues.

    Just as an update:

    My boss took the kitten to the vet. He said the problem isn't his bottom, it's his little man parts. Bless him. It would be a problem if I wanted to breed him, but otherwise it is purely cosmetic. I intend to neuter him, and I don't care if he doesn't look perfect, so it looks like I am getting a kitten! It's very exciting. He should be ready end of august/beginning of september.

    I wrote above that it is a cream tabby, that was an error. He is actually a lilac tabby (which is apparently quite rare)

    I don't have any pictures of him yet, as his mum sits on them when you get too close, lol. I'm going to hold him and get pictures tomorrow, hopefully.

    I'm still looking for name suggestions!

    Here is a link to a pic of a lilac tabby british shorthair kitten. This is NOT my kitten and he probably won't look exactly like this but his colouring will be similar!

    Previously suggested names include:


    Let me know what you think guys!
