My new Kitten does not have any shots yet honey81113 2007-07-12 22:03:14
I have just adopted a Himalayan kitten from a breeder in PA. My baby is wonderful but the experience I have had with the breeder has been a nightmare. The kitten is 16 weeks old and has not received any of her shots. I will be taking her to the vet next week which I will be paying for her to receive the vaccinations she has not received by the breeder at the age which is recommended. Because the shots will be given at a much older age, will this cause any problems with my kitten?
I have also noticed the kitten's jaw is abnormal. She has a cross bite as well as an overbite. Do you know if this is common with the breed? Will these cause problems in the future?
These are not the only problems I have experienced with the breeder. She has been rude and inconsiderate of my questions and concerns regarding the kitten.

I am sorry you had such a poor experience with the breeder. Please keep in mind all breeders are not like that, you were just unlucky in your choice of breeders. I don't think the shots will be a problem. The bite I'm not sure of, but I would think it would depend on the degree of abnormality. That's best to ask your vet. Did you know the kitten was not given the vaccines before purchasing it? This would have been a red flag to me.

If she is a registered breeder you can report her for letting kittens leave without the vaccinations.
