Looking To Adopt

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I am interested in adopting 2 all black male dsh litter mates polydactyls that are kittens with blue eyes. I live in the Boston Massachusetts area. It is important that I know the exact age of the kittens as it was a guess when I adopted my last 2 cats. The shelter was not sure of their age and so it was a guess and I had nothing sure to let the vet know when we visited.
It is with a heavy heart that my 2 calico dsh left me this year 5 months apart and it has been very empty here without them. I got them several years apart and both times I went to the shelter I went in for a male black or gray and both times came out with female calicos. We spent many years together.
If there is anyone that knows of a family looking to find a home that could place litter mates with this description in this area please send me an email.

That's very specific...black cats with blue eyes are not common, and polydactyl as well? VERY rare. I don't know if you'll find a cat that matches that description, much less two of them, especially since you're picky about the age and gender thing. I guess you can put in a request at every shelter and rescue in the area, but they're very busy and may not have time to give you a call. It could be a while!

You might try Siamese rescues especially, because they're most likely to have blue-eyed kittens. But Siamese aren't usually polydactyl, so I don't know if you'd get exactly what you're looking for.

I am so sorry to say, but this is very strange.... do you mind me asking why such an specific request? I mean... you want these kittens to love, and to make you company, right? Why do they need to be ALL of the below?

I'm curious as to the same thing.

I didn't want a cat. A black cat picked me.
I didn't want two cats. A calico picked me.
I wanted an orange cat. A grey one picked me.
I wanted a striped cat. An orange cat picked me.
I wanted a black cat. A torbie picked me.
And I found love every time

At any rate.. Good luck to you on your search! Polydactyls are awesome - Mine sounded like he was wearing heels when he clickety-clacked across tile.

I just loved your response.

I agree, what reason is there that you're being so specific on your search? I'm not knocking it at all as I was very specific in what I wanted when I was looking for Rosalie and I got basically what I wanted (a calico that's mainly white, only I wasn't exactly looking for a dilute calico but a regular one but oh well ). Sometimes it's the ones you least expect to get that make you the happiest

And what worries me the most, but maybe I am paranoid, is that this request is coming during Halloween time.... I don't know this person, it is a new member, so no one knows.... and I don't want to imply anything, I just think it is very strange.

Usually Shelters and rescues do not adopt black kitties or kittens during Halloween because of satanic cults sacrifices, and this request below is WAY too specific for me to not be considered weird IMO... But, as I said I am paranoid... But really...??? Do kitties need to be like this to be loved?

They will not adopt black cats out here this time of year either.

They are from MA as well. I never thought about that.

Our shelter doesn't stop black cat adoptions around Halloween. We ARE more careful, but by the time someone spends $75 to adopt a cat, and have given us their name, address, driver's license, etc., (all subject to verification), there just wouldn't be any future in doing it to obtain a cat for nefarious purposes.

The OP had a very specific request, but maybe he/she was fixated on some photo or painting they saw.

I must be paranoid too because I was thinking the exact same thing! I'm sorry but something just smells a bit fishy, especially seeing as how the OP hasn't responded as of yet.

What does MA have to do with it? Just curious.

Massachusetts is the home of "witches", "witchcraft", "Salem witch trials". I never noticed this person was from there. I'd be very concerned.

Also black kittens would have blue eyes if under 3 months old! They would not keep them when older - they would have gold or green-gold eye color as adults.

This person has been a member since 2005.
Where did anyone find that they were from MA?

Oh yes, I absolutely understand your concern. Why you can't walk down the street without running into some type of witchcraft. Animal sacrifices are the norm here and not just during Halloween.



Thankfully the "witches" don't stereotype people.

We are not stopping black cat adoptions this year apart from on Saturday itself and not because of cults but there are just too many spooky noises and open doors for any new animal to be in the home so we are stopping all adoptions.

That being said, if the person was in an apartment and home all night (apartments do not let trick or treaters go door to door here) we may make exceptions.

We do not know the reason behind the persons request. I have wanted an orange long-haired bigger polydactyl kitten as long as I can remember, Quincy is our sixth cat and while he has some orange fur, he isnt a polydactyl and yet I love every single one of my cats.

The number of times someone comes into the shelter looking for a very specific cat, an orange tabby, a female, whatever, and then leaves totally in love with the exact opposite of what they wanted is huge so I wouldnt put too much emphasis on the possible reasons for this persons choices, especially as they are unlikely to find what they are looking for before Halloween if they are picky about the traits

Just wanted to say it's not necessarily "witchcraft" and "witches". I am a Wiccan and cats, to us, are sacred, not an animal to be sacrificed.
post #22 of 24
I was not inferring that it was just sacrifices. But its an alarm bell to go off, especially around this time of year. Like anything else, you have a few bad people/acts to animals that make it bad for the rest that don't practice those things.

Sorry if anyone felt offended.
post #23 of 24
oh no, not offended at all, and I totally understand what you were saying, I completely agree with being careful/not adopting out black/white cats during the halloween season because some people out there do do these mean/cruel things to these animals. I was just "objecting".. or.. I guess letting it be known, that it's now just the whole "witchcraft" area that does these types things

DH never liked orange kitties and never thought he would get one. He just adores Rusty now. I always wanted a calico, but love Dusty (Rusty's sister) who is a patched tabby. Even when she wakes me up at 4:30 in the morning!

But I agree it is very suspicious!
