OK lets start over.My neighbor has cats he hasn't taken them to the vet EVER don't twist my words later and say I support this OK lets continue.One of his cats is pregnant he has offered to give me one of the kittens after they spend time with it's mother.I am willing to take it to the vet have it tested and vaccinated and will provide love and care for it.just because my culture isn't fond of animals doesn't mean I'm not.i was using the culture example to show why my parents do like to buy really fancy cat trees or a special toy.i have a cat bed a litter box some standard toys and food I still don't see how middle child assumes that I neglect animals.Now what I want help on is when the kitten is in my care I would like so tips or tricks to get the kitten well adjusted.Also may of you worrier about it being inbred my neighbor showed me that the father cat and the mother cat aren't related so no problems there and this pack of cats are the pack for miles so I should have any crazy cat stds.

Cats that have never been to a vet for any kind of check-up or vaccinations....are likely NOT in good health.  Therefore, their kittens will LIKELY not be healthy either.  They may SEEM and LOOK healthy...but cats do NOT show sickness, unless they are pretty much knocking on death door. 

I'll assume you are willing to care for a kitten, knowing the risk and possible cost. 

Leave the kitten with his/her mother for 10 weeks.  12 weeks would be better. 

When you adopt the kitten, take it to the vet RIGHT AWAY.  Expect the first visit to be a few hundred dollars for tests, vaccinations, exam, etc.  It is what RESPONSIBLE pet owners do.

Are we good so far?

This thread is worthless without pictures.

You might want to read the comments in that opinion piece you posted.  Almost everyone who posted hates the article and disagrees with it.  In fact many were quite nasty about it.

It was one person's opinion.  And quite obnoxious about it too.

Go back to your big screen TV, expensive game equipment and food stamps.  Leave the pet owning to people who actually care about animals.

If you really feel you need a pet, you can probably find a pet rock on e bay.  They were popular in the 70s.
