What is the best age to adopt a kitten?

Ideal Age to Adopt a Kitten

Kittens benefit from the extra time with the brothers and sisters for the first twelve to fourteen weeks, so most people think that's the ideal age to adopt a kitten. Some breeders will not let their kittens go to their new home before the age of 14 or even 16 weeks, because that's when the kitten's immune system is fully developed, and that gives the kitten a good amount of time to be nicely socialized.
