Hello and welcome to the forum! Those would be questions to ask the breeder.

I hope you researched breeders and are going to a reputable knowledgeable breeder, not a BYB or kitten mill.

What does c/p mean?

Be sure to introduce your little one to us when she comes home, which should not be before she is at least 3 months old of course..

hi back,i would have asked the breeder but i didnt want to seem irritating by asking lots questions.c/p was colourpoint.Yeh the kitten is staying with the breeder till 13 weeks and the breeder seemed to care about the cats which were all indoors and looked in great condition i was happy with what i saw anyway.i have been doing lots and lots of internet reading and have my head around the colour genetics to some degree. i will put some pics of her on in around 8 weeks thats when i get her and cant wait she is a stunner. sara x

I bet the breeder would be happy to answer any questions you may have. It's their business to know, after all, and you're the one putting your money in their pockets, and have a right to know anything you can think of to ask. I'm glad you've been to the home and seen the conditions.

Does the breeder spay before they go to their forever homes?

What do you mean you are getting qualified to microchip? Do you work in a vet clinic? That is not something you want to be doing at home, it should be done in a sterile environment in a vet clinic. It's often done at the same time as the spay.

Actually this procedure can take place out of vet clinic infact can be done at home in clean enviroments as equipment is sterile and sterile soloutions are used.I wouldnt be paying to do the course otherwise,and will be properly trained before qualifing.Its going to be a good skill to aquire as it may reunite someones pet someday.do you not agree?

It's beginning to sound to me like you intend to breed your kitten. I hope I am mistaken.

Yes that is a very old tired question which really has no meaning at all. Cats have been domesticated for many millenia. The over population of unwanted pets is beyond belief. There is no need for any additional breeders.

My cats are all rescued strays that came from irresponsible people who didn't have their pets fixed. This world already has more than enough breeders of every breed there is, and we don't need any more.

I hope you are purchasing from breeder who is a "reputable breeder" not a kitten mill or a BYB. Your reluctance to ask the breeder questions leads me to think that you don't want the breeder to know you plan to breed your kitten. Most reputable breeders spay and neuter before adoption, or the contract contains a clause requiring the buyer to spay and neuter within a certain amount of time.

Please, why not just spay your new kitten and allow her to have a nice life as a beloved pet and family member instead of a kitten making machine. If you want to "experience birth", contact a shelter and foster a pregnant stray. The season will be in full swing soon and there will be many chances for you to do so.

After you spend some time working in rescue you may understand my point of view better.

<edit> PS I will ask you a question: why do you want to breed this kitten?
