I was stuck between two kittens when her.
Are you going to pick them from the pictures or go there and see them?
I'm still investigating
It won't be right away.......may be a month or 2.
Kizzy found me... I put an ad up, describing my home situation and what I was looking for, stressing my needs and what I can give in return.
When I do get to that point, I will go see them. I can't pick from pictures, but I can pick where to start with the pics. For example: I prefer long haired, larger cats. So if a cat is listed as petite, or doesn't get along with other animals, etc. it is not one that I would go and see.
With Kizzy, I went to a shelter with a nice cat room.... cats are in this room, free, unless they have an issue and then the cat is in a cage. So I got to go in and just sit there.....seeing which kitties I liked. I loved that experience. I liked walking into a room with a bunch of kitties and taking my time, seeing who liked me and who I liked.
The link I posted, most of the cats are in seperate places. It's not a shelter, but a group of fosters which makes it a little more difficult to chose.
The kitties they have posted are all great..... it's just so hard to choose if I were to choose from them since the kitties are mostly seperated (there's a few paired together, but they rather not split up certain pairs).
oh to live on a farm with lots of money, that would be nice. I'd have a snake house, a kitty house, and a dog yard/house LOL.

I do too, but if adopted from the link I posted, I need to start somewhere as I can go all over to view all of em. I would definately send a letter out to the rescue beforehand tho.... no sense going to see kitties that wouldn't fit in my home.
