Finding homes on Craigslist

Some people are rabidly against posting on Craigslist. I figure if I get bad responses, I can just say "No." I've received some very nice adoptions by way of Craigslist and eBay (the classifieds, not the auction). People from more distant cities (Syracuse, etc.) often find my posts when they expand their search to check other nearby Craigslist postings. I find that I get a better quality of response if I post a photo that is cut and pasted from my Petfinder listing. People realize they we are not just someone with kittens from the backyard, and scammers also tend to stay away.

Tortellini, Beans, and Bounder just HAVE to get homes soon. They are far too active for my senior cats, but I don't want to put them in the cat facility. I'm just lucky that I have the boarding rooms to keep them in at night so my personal cats get a break from the playful activity that goes on, and on, and on. The kittens also want to cuddle up on my lap, bless them, which puts Ivan and Cricket's noses out of joint.

So keep your fingers crossed that these three beautiful young cats get their own homes for Christmas.

  1. Hey that's my Beans! I was just scrolling through the old blogs and stumbled upon this. We adopted him 3 months after this post. He sure is active!! But he is the cutest, sweetest, most lovable boy. He starts at one end of the house and runs to other end and straight up his his 6ft cat tree to the very top perch and hangs over the edge to beg for head rubs and kisses. Sadly, he recently lost his wrestle buddy to kidney disease but he also gained a new human baby that will, I'm sure, keep him on his toes and wear him out as soon as she's walking. For now all she can do is slobber on him but he is very tolerant of her obsession with him. We love beans so much!!! Thank you for all you do Susan!
