I hear you. Kittens are cute but I’d way rather have an adult adoptee. Stay vigilant.

That is my big thing. They're undeniably adorable and fun in the discovery phase...but when they're chewing on someone elses stuff. Our current cat has turned to chewing on drawstrings on hoodies and PJ pants and clawing the rug my HR director got us as a wedding present (even though she has a 4ft cat tree that she uses twice a week). So I know I would get frustrated with a kitten adding to that and having to be trained to stop.

I told James I won't get another cat unless it's a hairless, and I'm holding firm on that. It's just a matter of finding an adult.

Definitely learn this thread inside and out if you are checking ads

We have seen very very creative scams
Unfortunate for the legit that advertise
But l personally now always prefer adopting here or through referral

Trust your gut
I did pass on the first few kitties
and nearly scammed off a hoobly Ad


All paws crossed the sphynx stars align

I sent you a PM

Wow that's amazing! Mine was "only" a Champion Siamese. I paid a whopping $200, granted it was 20 years ago. The best thing about show cats to me is that in order to be in the show environment where they get handled by strangers they have to be super friendly, outgoing, playful, easygoing....they check all the boxes.

I put myself on a breeders wait list for a retired kitty, but there's no telling how many people are ahead of me or when one will be available.

I am not done looking, because I am a crazy cat lady and I wouldn't mind ending up with a few more lap warmers.

When my husband sees me doing my daily hunt, he will hold our cat and tell her "she's looking for an intruder! she's going to replace you with something new"
Thank god she can't understand him antagonizing her or she would end up thinking we are gonna trade her in rather start building a private cat zoo. hahaha

You're on your way! Don't worry about people in front of you; I put myself on a list that by the time I got contacted I had already found another cat so I passed.

A retired show Devon Rex just came up for adoption in Ohio. You want a zoo right? It says they'd prefer no other pets but that's very hard to find and at least you don't have kids or dogs.

I love when devons have the finger-wave look on their coat!
We have a female though, I don’t know that a moody cat would be a good addition.

And thank you for that source, in all my searching I’ve never heard of the site before.
