Re: Looking to adopt two Kittens

Thanks everyone for the input!


The search continues but it's slowly looking like giving up time.



"Announcement board at the local migros" definitely sounds like the correct route, but with the lockdown, I'm not leaving home for checking out random boards for random chances.



Again, if someone is out and about on their essential task and notice such an option (or advertisements at a farm), would love to hear from you.


This weekend had a promising option for a couple free Maine Coon kitties, but lady was in France, no visit was possible and to send money first to cover the transport costs.

Couldn't she have left the keys under the doormat or something and you could have just picked up a couple of cats?
People are just overcomplicating things.

Sounds like you dodged a bullet there then. Demanding cash in advance without even goving contact details sounds like a scam.

I was only asking as we're down to two cats, and if it were someone local to us looking for a home we might have been able to help.

If youíre willing to drive ... out near us there is someone looking to rehome two ~year old Maine Coon siblings who have lived indoors their whole lives.
One year old is still plenty young, they're Maine Coons, and they're accustomed to living indoors.

Iím not sure if theyíre the same two cats.

The poster on here said the cats were near her in Fribourg and Chemmie said France. Unless FR means France and not Fribourg.

I believe Chemmie was referring to his own post on FB and didn't read 3Wishes post correctly.

This, this, a thousand times this.

The lockdown situation has kicked the old 'send money for transport' scam into overdrive, there have been so many reports of variations on this con making the rounds.

Barstewards. Always ready to exploit a crisis.

Eyes wide, keep the wallet closed until you verify.

---

Hope you find your kitties, Chemmie.

Gotcha.

A bit of a cross post.

AnnaSophiaA had a lead for two 2y maine coons.

I was refering to a different offer on FB (which i couldnt visit because it was a scam- otherwise i would have)

Hope all is clear now.

Yeah and i missed the 'this' in 3Wishes post. Home alone has made me very self centered...more so.

Almost to the point to take the financial hit and buy some kittens

Well, in all fairness, you wrote an epilogue of some sort. I kept it short and concise. I figured 3Wishes was distracted by the latest episode of "Days of our Lives" and Chemmie most likely as well.

You don't know me as well as you think you do. I've never watched soaps. I'm a sucker for cooking shows, even though I can't cook.

Desperately looking to adopt kitten/kittens

Unfortunately our cat died yesterday and my daughter, single child that grew up with him, is devastated.
I am looking to adopt 1 or 2 kittens immediately and all shelters are closed due to corona-virus...
Any advice please?
