How Healthy Is That Kitten or Puppy On the Website? — 8 Comments

  1. well i don’t know never had to go though any of that though i ended up getting a cat (rebel) from a site here in new zealand called trademe which is like ebay. Although had a bad situation with the couple it worked ok.

  2. I’ve never advertised a cat or kitten anywhere and never will.

    Every spring and fall, like clockwork, unwanted kittens are deposited on my deck.
    Some have been even too young to be close to weaning. I have no expertise in how to keep them alive, but I do my best and elicit as much help as I can. Sometimes, I just sit on my steps and cry, because they’re crying until they’re too weak to cry.

    But, one day, a man pulled into my yard when I was outside, saying that he had heard that I had some kittens. He wanted to know if I would give away 2 or 3. There was something about his demeanor that I didn’t like, so I kept talking to him and asking him questions.
    As it turned out, he wanted kittens to feed to his pet snake.

    I can’t write the X-rated things that I said to him.
    But, I will never, ever give kittens to anyone I don’t know well. Even then, I’ll do follow-up.

    • Sarah Hartwell, who is a well known cat expert here says that cats always turn up for her. She has never had a problem adopting. Neither have I. You haven’t even got to go to a shelter. They are just there.

    • It makes my blood run cold thinking of that horrible man Dee, I hope he didn’t get any kittens anywhere else. Cats are so vulnerable and people with evil intent can act as though they love them, we can never be too careful who we trust!

  3. I think there needs to be some clarification in that this is very different from what Elisa is involved with. She’s not involved with “free to a good home” and “good luck sucker”.
    It may not be as upfront and personal as we would want, but lives are saved and there are scruples with her involvement.

  4. Would you buy a car, adopt a child, or get married online with no upfront and personal contact?
    There ya’ go…
