Kittens Wanted!

Can anyone help?
I have a friend (never the right way to start a question that) that is trying to find a kitten for her son but seems to find people asking for 150+ on places like Gumtree. Does anyone out there in the community know of healthy kittens which don't have such a silly fee attached to them?
Of course personally I would always go to a pet's charity / shelter (I have two rescue moggies myself) but she does particularly want kittens. Any suggestions or ridiculous replies appreciated.

I got a kitten from Raystede. I think I paid 100 for her but that does help cover the care that she received from them, medications etc. We were on the waiting list for a while until there were some kittens available.

Pleased to see kittens cost that much. Makes sure people can afford to look after them and think very carefully about getting one in the first place. Cats and dogs are expensive to look after properly.

Kitten season hasn't really started yet. There will be loads in a few months. If she's truly an animal lover then please try to convince her to go to somewhere like Raystede. With private sales, especially of cheap kittens, it's impossible to know if they've come from breeding farms where the mothers are exploited and horribly ill-treated. Beware particularly of ads that say things like 'pretty kittens, various colours, ready now'.

NCPL @ Chelwood Gate have lots of cats needing good homes. Personally, I'd go for an adult cat, kittens are hard work. If you do really want a kitten, get one that's about 12 weeks old. They are much more confident and robust.
