Looking for a Kitty in Toronto
« on: August 29, 2005, 02:31:55 pm »
My grandmother lives in Scarsborough Ontario and really really wants a kitty.  I live in Boston and am driving up to Toronto with my mom in a couple of weeks for a wedding.  Instead of finding a kitty here in Boston and having the poor thing stuck in the car with me in a carrier for 10 hours, I was thinking I could find a kitty from the Toronto area and pick it up on my way to my Grandmothers!  Does anyone know of a 1-2 year old kitty in the Toronto area that needs a home?  Gender doesn't matter, we would preferred spayed/neutered and up to date on shots.  I've checked Petfinder and there isn't much, and I'd rather not deal with a shelter because I'm only going to be up there for a few days and things will probably be really hectic with wedding events the entire weekend.  If you know of a kitty that needs a home in the Toronto area, please let me know! 

PS.  My grandmother is 67 retiring and really wants a companion kitty!

Thanks!

Have you thought of looking at the newspaper's in the area online?  Then looking in the clasifieds?  Tons of people give away kittens (I remember when they used to give away puppies too, now oops pups are like $400 a pop),  and they advertise them in the paper.

If you check out the petfinder classifieds, not the shelter listings, but if you look in the bottom left corner (I think) they have a classified section. Here people can post who need to rehome their animals but don't want to put them in a shelter. There are TONS of kitties that are searching for new homes in the Toronto area, and most are already spayed or neutered. Good luck in finding the perfect kitty for your grandmother!

We have a kitten, but we're in Indiana and he's feisty, needs someone with older children to play with... good luck though!
