I suggest giving the poor guy to a no-kill shelter. I don’t like the idea of a stranger being able to pick up a cat of Craigslist because there are too many creeps out there.

I love that you and your friend are making such an effort for him!

“Sigh”…I wish people would spay and/or neuter their pets and adopt intead of buy. There are way too many pets without homes. GL.

Maybe contact rescues that do little weekend events in your area?  You know, the ones who come to pet stores and malls and such to get adoptions?  You might be able to tag along on one of those.

What a tough situation!  I see where you said there are not any nokill shelters in your area that would be able to take the kitty, but what if you widened your search a bit more?  HAving no idea where exactly you are, it is hard to say, but might there be one within a half day’s drive?  It would take the whole day, and be a huge PITA, but at least that way, the cat is off your hands.  You are probably spending a great deal of time caring for him, and looking for people to take him – maybe enough to justify losing a whole day to this? 

That is honestly the only thing I can think of.  Hotchild’s suggestion is awesome, so if that works out it would be great! 

Good luck with this – you are doing a wonderful thing by helping him find a happy home!

This might be obvious – but have you posted the kitty’s picture and information on Facebook and asked if anyone knows a good home for him? I know someone who fosters dogs and she is able to find a lot of homes through Facebook and Twitter. A friend-of-a-friend is less likely to be sketchy/abusive than a stranger from Craig’s List.

The group that I foster cats with is always full so we never have room to take in new cats. What we can do for people, however, is post their cat on our website and Petfinder with your contact information. The more exposure the cat gets, the faster he gets adopted. Maybe you could contact some groups in your area and ask them if they could do a posting for you along with their adoptable cats?
