Pet health insurance is highly recommended. Trupanion is excellent.
Your vet will decide what further shots kitten needs.
Buyer will never declaw cat, never let outdoors, never place except in loving indoor-only pet home. Kitten will have free run of new owners’ home, once acclimatedi and have loving care and attention, as well as veterinary care as needed. Kitten should be neutered/spayed no earlier than 7 months of age. Buyer needs to make arrangements in advance for cat care should buyer become very ill or pass.
Kitten needs fresh water daily, yearly routine veterinary health checks and food that is primarily protein derived from meat and not grains or starch. Always read dry ingredients, Three or four of first five should be meat based.
Kittens primarily eat canned kitten food. I feed poultry varieties. Kittens and cats eat Instinct Raw Boost dry which is left available to free feed. Both dry and canned are available at Chewy.com and Petco. We supplement with NuVet Plus.
Kitten needs to be contained initially in small area with litter box so kitten completely knows where litter box is. Do not skip this.
I use the Dr. Esley Cat Attract litter. Use whatever you wish.
Kittens are live animals and seller does not indefinitely guarantee health, as that is not practical with a living entity. Purchaser should take kitten to their vet within 10 working days and if vet states in writing this kitten has a serious health issue, seller may return kitten for a full refund. Buyer is responsible for all vet and transport charges.

THOUGHTS ABOUT VACCINES: today many believe over-vaccinating is an unnecessary and dangerous challenge to the immune system. I agree. We don't recommend vaccinating your pet yearly. We do recommend a yearly check up. We don't recommend the leukemia (felv) vaccine. However, if you live in a home with young children or careless adults, if your doors are open and shut a lot, think twice. If there is a good chance your cat will get outdoors, then prevention is worth it. Rabies is required by law in many states so that is beyond your control. Your vet is trained to give lots of shots. You may come up against resistance. I can only recommend. In the end, your vet's word is professional
