i recently took advantage of our local kitten orphanage . i found it to be a great way to obtain a kitten with a great support group as well. this system lets you choose the breed of kitten and select your kitten from several various litters located in area foster homes. these kittens are not adopted out unless they have their first vaccines, deworming, a check up with a vet, and they are started on an anti flea program. this cost only 35.00 which is actually less than what it would cost for a visit to the vet with all the above included. they offer followup calls and a support network as well. i think that this system is worth mentioning.
