2 kittens, separate or keep together

#1
I am bringing home two new kittens next weekend. One is a Savannah and the other is Savannah/Bengal. Should I keep them together to begin with or separate them for a little while so that they bond with my kids vs each other? I have heard advice for each.

I'd say definitely separate if they aren't from the same litter but if they're from the same breeder maybe that's a different story

Health issues aside, you will be most succssful at having them bond to the humans if they are separated from each her for at least a couple of weeks.

FWIW My two were littermates and kept together in quarantine and they seem to have turned out ok. I guess it depends on how they get on - if you try to separate my two they will bawl and bawl and bawl until you relent.
There again, they knew each other pretty well and one of my priorities was having the cats get on with each other.

I would still keep them apart for a bit so for the first two weeks they have more interaction with humans than with each other. The bond they have with each other is certainly going to be pretty strong, and without separating them a bit from one another it could see one of them completely checking out with human interaction.
