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
