What is youngest kitten to be seperated from mom?

What's the youngest age a kitten can be seperated from mom and adopted? Just wondering because my dad's neighbos have a litter they're putting up; I went and looked at them today and would like to take one home, but they were really tiny. I would guess ~ 4-6 weeks old. They're up and walking around and playing and such...

I don't live near my dad nad was just in town for Memprial Day, so if I don't take one now I probably won't get one. However, i don't want to take them away before it's time.

Just wondering.

Absolute youngest? I'd say 8 weeks. Ideally they'd stay with mom until 10-12 weeks.
