How do I choose??

We are getting one of these kittens! these are the only pictures I have seen so far and I don't know how to pick! I want them all of course
I want a male, but I don't know the sexes of each one yet. There is also an all black one that he didnt have a pic of.
And look at the little mustache on the black and white one!! eeeeeee

Pick the one that seems to have a character most compatible with your cat. What is he like ?

When you meet them in person you might also have more of a connection with one or more of the kittens.

I find that small kittens can show a lot of their general character pretty early. I got two tiny boys to foster last year that looked almost like twins but from day one you could tell them apart very easily because one of them was much more outgoing than the other one. When I get updates from their adoptive familie the way they describe the differences between the two in the same way as I would the first week.

Banjo is very outgoing and friendly. He has his moments when he is crazy and bouncing off the walls, but he can be very calm at times too. He is still a kitten himself(9 months). Overall I think he is very well-rounded, so I am pretty sure he will be compatible with almost any other type of personality. I figure I will let the kitten choose me, whichever one shows more interest in me will be the one! Allthough I always feel bad for the shy guys too, I may want to take one that is less likely to get picked for whatever reason

When I choose Samantha she was 6 months old and the choice was between her and 3 half siblings that were 8 months old.
One of the a red and white female that the breeder eventually kept wanted to go home with me, she climbed on my lap and also into my carrier.
I not sure why I picked Samantha, she was rather indifferent, she was gorgeous and maybe I considered it a challenge to win her heart.
I believe that as a kitten that wasn't needy she didn't get all the attention she might have needed in a house hold with 2 litters of kitten at one time.
I did win her heart and she grew to adore me as I adored her.
She loved being Papa's spoiled Princess and we had 15 1/2 wonderful years together.

Good luck choosing, shan!

They all look so dang cute and cuddly. But yeah. I figure for any family additions in our house , they will be based mainly on who chooses us, too. They would have to be pretty mellow, too, to reduce the chance of our current kitty from getting bullied, of course.

Good luck on your choice. Lucky you!

I finally got ahold of the guy who has these kittens, and was able to ask him some questions. He said there are 5 alltogether, there is another black and white one and an all black one that were not in these pictures. He doesnt know what sex they are, but I am going to meet them next week! Can't wait!!

All kittens are beautiful, but the one in the tree crotch is extra so with that marking on her head. OK! The 'her' is a guess.

Go back when they're about 5 wks. old and their personalities should be pretty evident by then, and sit on the floor and just play with them and let them come to you, and if there's one that keeps sitting in your lap, then likely that's the one. I've found that the kitten that chooses you, you will have the closest bond. Good luck, and of course we want pics. The three are adorable, I'd be tempted to take them all!

That would be an almost impossible choice for me. If it came down to it though, I would probably be like you and go for the underdog (poor word choice for these forums!) or the most unlikely picked kitten. Banjo would always be forefront in my mind, also. Good luck! We will need plenty of visit pics you know
