A Word of Caution About Cat Mills
Cat or kitten mills are a big problem in the pet trade. Like puppy mills, kitten mills produce litters of kittens in high volumes without adequate housing or care, leading to health problems in the future. In many cases, cats are bred indiscriminately and not tested for genetic conditions.
Kittens in kitten mills are abused and neglected at the mill, often exposed to dim lighting, poor-quality food, inadequate housing (wire cages), and no parasite control. If the mill owners don’t sell their cats to a pet store, they’re sent to laboratory testing facilities.
This exploitative practice can be avoided by choosing breeders carefully. Naturally, pet mill breeders don’t advertise themselves as such, but there are some red flags to look for. Reputable breeders are concerned about the welfare of their kittens and are transparent about their breeding practices.
They usually expect potential pet parents to sign contracts agreeing to veterinary care, spaying and neutering, and regular vaccinations. In some cases, the kitten will be released to you after a spay or neuter surgery. Also, most reputable breeders limit breeding rights and keep kittens until 10 weeks of age or older.
