    Looking for a kitten

    ok, so my mom has been wanting to get a cat for a while now. but nowadays its harder to adopt or get a cat than it is a child. Long story short is she had issues with the adoption agency here because they dont want you to let the cat outside.

    Anyway we had 3 a couple of years ago and all were very well cared for. So what im looking for is anyone that knows where to fnd a kitten without these hassles of having an agency come to your house to check on the cat. Anyone having kittens soon or know someone that is, or have another solution? I'm in the northern NJ area if anyone can help.

    Thanks!

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    thats the whole problem here. basically what happened was, my mom went to this humane place and they make you fill out a form, asking all kinds of questions how will you treat the cat. one question asks if you will let it outside... she said yes, because thats what we did with all the other cats we had.

    well they dont like that and blacklist her from adoption.

    They have them in crates on the sidewalk and donate them.
