I'm helping a friend trying to find a good home for this female kitten. We don't know too much about her. It just showed up at my friend's house in Phoenix one day. I suspect it was abandoned there. Something similar happened to me about tens years ago. I'm told this kitten is very affectionate and vocal. The reason my friend can't keep it is his long-time cats don't like the newcomer. I think he is willing to take it to Vegas for purposes of adoption.

I think he will address any questions you may have.

The question for the poll is who is your favorite cat?

Felix and Courageous are my two favorite cats.
I saw Fritz the Cat in the movies and didn't get the whole idea.

From a pet adoption group:
Quote: AdoptAPet

A rehoming fee is a payment made by potential adopters to the person or organization they are adopting a pet from. These fees are important because they require potential adopters to demonstrate the financial ability to care for a pet and to weed out people who collect dogs and cats listed as free to a good home for use in dog fighting, as bait animals, or to sell to labs....In order to make the pet unattractive to people who want dogs and cats for nefarious purposes, the fee should be at least $50. If you want the adopter to demonstrate a willingness to care for your pet's financial needs, you may want to charge more.

When I was in high school, I had a little business breeding and selling guinea pigs. Once a pet store that had a lot of reptiles bought a litter of them. At the time, I wondered why a pet store that specialized in snakes would want guinea pigs.

I'm sure the temporary keeper of this cat will screen adopters carefully. Meanwhile, that makes sense about rehoming fees.

Sorry I can't help. While I wouldn't mind adopting a cat, Mrs. Joeman and our Lab mix would raise strenuous objections! Doesn't help that I am 2,500 miles away, either.

I voted for Richard Feynman as my favorite, but only because Zazzles was not an option!

Best wishes on getting that kitten adopted.


About cats & the poll:

I totally do not remember a cat that lived next door to Snoopy. Google to the rescue. Yeah, I remember that stupid cat. But I still don't remember Frieda, the cat's owner.


And Richard Feynman? It took a bit of Google sleuthing to get why he's included. Boy is that a reference out of left field.

My favorite cat? Garfield.

Of course, part of the reason is because of a Garfield Get Well card I saw many years back. On the front, Garfield comments, "I heard you're sick." Inside he says, "Hope you don't die." (Sorry but I couldn稚 find an image of it.)
