  1. Weird. But I can't give away kittens so I don't know how anyone can sell them. I'd be more interested in how she pulls THAT off.

    There are a couple of feral kittens I know about now and have my eye on that I COULD capture ..but the ones I rescued from last fall are still here and with no homes I don't know what to do.

  2. Just catch them and get them fixed, Chriss. Likely whomever sold them only got $10 each or something like that, don't know. Don't know anything more about it, just though it to be an interesting post.

  3. The kittens are like 4 weeks old, tops. The mom is going in but with the kittens... well, if there were homes.. but I kind of feel like the last thing I need is more tame people-friendly cats that have to go back into the feral colonies. *sigh*

  4. A "small rehoming fee." That's just too funny. What could be wrong with something as innocuous sounding as a rehoming fee?

  5. No clue, Snowbrush. No clue on my part. Craigslist ads sometimes are really entertaining however.

  6. Four weeks is the perfect age to tame feral kittens, or hand them off to a rescue, if you can find one, who will take them, vaccinate and worm them, fix them at two pounds, then adopt them out. Those can be hard to find, that's for sure, especially with the excess of kittens out there now.
