Generally Infinite Hope has a policy the we only adopt young kittens to homes where there is already a cat living in the home or in pairs. Kittens learn from their mothers and litter mates appropriate play and socialization and need the stimulation of other felines. We believe that it is best for a kitten's behavioral and social development to have another feline around for this reason. We have found that kittens who do not get appropriate feline interactions can sometimes display problematic behaviors with humans and in their home environment. This is why we have a policy that kittens go in pairs or to a home where there is already a cat living in it.
