When can my kitten leave?

Cats are seasonal breeders. 

In SA, most kittens are usually available around Christmas.

Explanation :
Kittening is a seasonal phenomenon. Cats are "long day breeders" and require 12 hours or more of light to maintain normal cyclicity. For more information, visit the linkbelow the image on the left to read an article on "Feline Estrous Cycle".

Cats in the southern hemisphere usually start calling in July and stop calling by January each year.
