Infinite Hope has a policy to adopt young kittens in pairs or to homes where there is already a cat for company. Kittens learn appropriate play and socialization from their litter mates and other playmates, and greatly benefit from the stimulation of other cats. We believe that it is best for a kitten's behavioral and social development to have the companionship of another kitten or cat for this reason. We have found that kittens who do not get appropriate feline interactions can sometimes develop problematic behaviors. Here's a some additional insight from the Kitten Lady's website: "One of the most important ways we can support the behavioral and emotional development of a kitten is to make sure they’ve got a friend. Despite the common belief that cats are solitary animals, they’re actually incredibly social beings who thrive when they have feline friends from an early age. It may come as a surprise to hear this, but two kittens are actually half the work of one! Giving your kitten a buddy will improve the lives of the cats while also making your life easier."
