Awe.  Could you try craigslist or some no-kill rescue organizations (that can find foster homes until the kitty finds a real home)?  Or mail him to me 😉

I hope you find someone to take her soon! Did you try posting on Facebook? Take pictures too so they see how cute she is.

Please do NOT try Craigslist (or, if you do, please charge a small fee).  Lots of sickos find free animals on Craigslist and the like to use as bait when training dogs for dog fighting, to torture for fun, or other terrible things.

I agree that Facebook is a good place to start.  Where are you located?  Maybe some people here can help you find some local resources.

@MissComicBook:  You should definitely post photos.  It’s really hard to ignore adorable kitten photos.

Please post some here, too!  If nothing else, we’ll get to squee over the kitten.  With luck, a girl near you will realize that she has a kitten-shaped hole in her heart, and this one will fill it!

If it’s okay with you, I’ll also post the photos to my Facebook.  My parents live in Ohio, so I can boost the signal and see if anyone I know from that area is in need of a new kitty.

My husband and I found a stray cat last week and have since adopted her. She didn’t get along well with our other 2 cats or our dog but even in a few days she’s improved so much. Is there any way to keep her for a little bit until you can find her a home? We kept ours in a bathroom for a week because she was being treated for fleas, but maybe you could keep the cat in a separate room so it won’t upset your other pets? 

Definitely post pictures on fb and hopefully you can give it a bit of time to find it a new home.

A few months ago the same thing happened to me and my husband… we have 3 cats as well.. and though we would have loved to keep the kitty … three cats was our limit…. we took her to the vet and they gave us a discount to help with the fleas and any other problems…I found a local animal clinic that spays and neuters stray cats … i think it was 30$?

 

We are in the Cincinnati area… but check out this place…http://www.adoptastray.com/. Our vet gave us this information to help us find it a home. My mom in Pittsburgh ended up taking her in for us… but this place will take stray cats and find them foster houses till they are adopted and they have a place at our vets where they keep them in cages in an area for people to adopt.

It might be worth the drive to bring the kitty here if they have room.

I would also say CL, just be honest and upfront in your ad and I am sure that her short story will tug on someones heart strings and they will giver her a good home.

@MissComicBook: we didn’t give her a flea treatment the first day but we bathed her with cat shampoo ( something gentle would work) and used a comb to get rid of most of the fleas. It took two hours but by the time we were done we couldn’t see any fleas and it definitely helped her feel better and kept fleas from getting on our other pets. I hope someone near you can take her.
