How to Select the Right Kitten?

If you’re considering adding a kitten to your family, you may be wondering how to choose the right one. With so many adorable Maine Coon kittens available, it can be challenging to make a decision. It’s important to consider the type of environment the kitten will be in and ensure that their personality and temperament align well with your home.

In the current landscape of Maine Coon adoptions, it’s often difficult to meet a kitten in person before adopting them. Instead, you may have to rely on photos provided by the breeder on social media or through direct communication. While this method generally works out well, there are instances where a different kitten may have been a better fit. Having more insight into the kittens can be incredibly helpful in making an informed decision.

At Bellspurr, we have implemented a new process to assist you in choosing the right kitten. Starting from February 1, 2021, Approved Guardians will have the opportunity to review a personal bio or assessment for each kitten on their respective pages. This added feature aims to enhance your buying experience with Bellspurr and provide you with more confidence when making a decision.

It’s important to note that these kitten assessments are not definitive indicators of how the kitten will be as they grow and mature. They simply reflect the observations of the kitten’s behavior at the time of assessment. Kittens undergo significant growth and change in the first three years of their lives, and their temperament will evolve accordingly. They will exhibit kitten-like behavior for at least the first year, followed by a gradual increase in maturity and calmness. The individuality of each cat will continue to develop over time.

Please keep in mind that at 4 weeks old, kittens are still finding their balance and starting to explore outside of the nest. This is a crucial time for me to observe their behavior and provide you with valuable insights to help you make an informed decision. Once they reach 8 weeks old, I will begin documenting their progress on their web pages.

At 8 weeks old, I will conduct the first kitten assessment. This is when I can start to see distinct differences in their personalities. These assessments will be a valuable tool for you in choosing a kitten that is a good fit for you. As the caretaker, I have a deep understanding of each kitten and can provide you with first-hand insights.

Here are the areas I will be assessing and reporting on their respective pages:
  • How does the kitten respond to dogs?
  • How does the kitten respond to unfamiliar cats?
  • Does the kitten enjoy being held and cuddled?
  • How confident is the kitten?
  • Is the kitten afraid of loud noises?
  • Does the kitten approach me when I enter the nursery?
  • Does the kitten seek out my lap and relax?
  • Is the kitten more social or prefers to be alone?
