|I say go to one of the rescues that FULLY vaccinates, fixes, and examines their pets, and will exchange if you have any unforseen health or behavior issues. Be sure to take the kitten to the vet within a couple of days of getting it before you get too attached.I know some people will think I'm awful for saying that, but you are 12 and want to enjoy your pet without having constant worries.
At the price you mention, you wouldn't be able to get a purebred from a reputable breeder, unless it's a retired show or breeder cat, and you say you want a kitten. If you are determined to get a purebred, of course we say get a Burmese--we are wonderful, wonderful kitties. Fun but not spazzy, smart, gentle, love our people, talk a little but not too much, and we feel like silk due to our very fine fur that doesn't shed too much.
We would actually reccommend you get a 4 to 6 month old kitten than a tiny one, for a couple of reasons.
1--It will be able to tolerate more playing, petting, etc without compromising its health
2--If it is still with the mother at that time and she is a nice well adjusted cat then the kitten will have learned this from her.
3--Older kittens are less likely to be chosen, and end up getting put to sleep.
