So I have been trying to help my grandma find homes for her kittens. My grandma is your token cat lady you have heard about. The single old lady who has eleventy cats. She has so many because she never wants to give her kittens away to anyone that she doesn't know. I thought that to be a little extreme and I thought I could easily help her out by using Craig's list as she is very un-tech savvy,
That was until today when I went to post a classified and these words of caution appeared:
"As you may be aware, animals given away for free can, and unfortunately often do, meet gruesome fates. They can end up in the hands of animal abusers like Barry Herbeck, a Wisconsin man who was convicted last year of torturing and killing animals he obtained through "free to good home" ads. He confessed to taking his kids with him when responding to the ads so people would be comfortable turning animals over to him. People known as "bunchers," who obtain animals illegally from random sources to sell to research facilities for profit, often acquire animals by answering "free to good home" ads. Small animals advertised as "free to good home" are sometimes acquired by individuals who intend to use them as bait in training other animals to fight. Gerbils, hamsters, and young kittens are often acquired to be used as snake food."
Maybe the cat lady has point. reason #345,765 I absolutely despise snakes.
Please let me know if you or someone you know is interested in adopting a kitten. Even if you are in Utah, Arizon or California, I will be in these states this summer.
