Not all kitten sellers are telling the whole truth. Our kitten sales campaign video details just some of the problems that can come from kitten breeders.
Some kittens are being sold online for profit too soon. They're being torn apart from their mums before they're even eight weeks old. This isn't just upsetting, it is also life threatening.
Unscrupulous kitten selling has to stop. Take our Kitten Care Quiz so you don't get caught by the big kitten con.

When a kitten is taken from their mother too young, not only does this break the most precious bond, it can have dire consequences for their behaviour, health and survival.
These little ones may need round-the-clock urgent medical care, warmth and much-needed love. But we can't do this alone.

If you're thinking about getting a new addition to the family, why not consider adopting a kitten or older cat? Find out more about the lovable characters currently with us here.
And if you're looking to buy from a breeder, please read our Kitten Checklist as well as more about buying a kitten here.
Abandoned or unwell kittens can come into our care at any time of the year. And we need to be ready with warmth, food and medical care - especially in winter.
But we also have to be prepared for 'kitten season' (between April and late autumn) when many more kittens are born. Kittens who may also need urgent care and safe forever homes. Please help us be ready - always.
