Still No Kitten!

We still don't have a second cat, if you can believe it.

One person I came across had a cat for adoption.  No, actually her son has it, and he lives in a different town.  Wait--they're going to take her to the vet early next week.  Could we put this off until then?  Wait, I don't have his email address.  Wait--yes, I do.  Can you email him and let him know you're interested?

Another lady had an ad on Craigslist.  Her cat had just had kittens and she was looking for homes.  She wanted proof of home ownership or a letter from the landlord saying you're a good tenant, a letter of recommendation from your vet (no brand new cat owners allowed), a signed statement saying you wouldn't declaw the cat or that you'd return it to her if you decided to, and . . . and . . . and . . .

Sigh.

This is almost worst than adopting your kids. (/joke)





And obviously, not really. I recall those days vividly.

That's...wow. You can't turn around out here without hearing about cats in need of a home.

I'm almost afraid to ask what happened to that state's feline population, because I suspect it wasn't "everyone got smart and spayed their non-breeding animals..."

That said, sounds like the second woman is taking good care of her litter - it's no more than the shelters around here ask

Good luck with the hunting!

I'm wondering, too, what's become of all the cats that always seem to need a home.

Have you tried checking Petfinder? Here's a link to their home page:
https://www.petfinder.com/
You tell them what you're looking for, and they'll show you available animals in the area you specify.

Yeah. Around here, Petfinder links to all the places that insist on five forms of ID, a letter from your vet, and proof that you own a limousine.

I got a friend with a pregnant cat. Apparently they took in a stray.
