Thumbs down Free to good home the quest goes on!

I was searching on google for something tottally unrelated to animal adoption and stumbled accross this classified ad, I couldnt believe that amount of ppl on there giving away "free" unnuetered cats! are these people really that "Stupid" (There you go I changed it ) I mean even I know thats a kitten mill heaven!!! I wonder if there is a way we can post on there to say "hey you stupid Idiots do you not care??" or maybe something a little nicer?

Check it out

There are 2 categories these people fall under:

People who don't know, but would care if they did.

People who DO know, but still don't care.

If any of them are in the 1st category, you can ask them if they wish to be responsible for this:

Two uncontrolled breeding cats create two litters per year at a survival rate of 2.8 kittens per litter. With continued breeding, they create:
Year 1 = 12 cats
Year 2 = 66 cats
Year 3 = 2,201 cats
Year 4 = 3,822 cats
Year 5 = 12,680 cats
Year 10 = 80,399,780 cats

This is what I wrote to all of the ones offering free cats, one lady was giving away a free cat who just had a litter, and she hadnt even spayed her can you belive that. what a nice advert for a breeder!!!

Please do not offer your cat free of charge to people. this only attracts the likes of kitten mills who will only use your cat to breed, and they will live a very sad and lonely life. Please ask for an adoption fee or at least screen prospective adopters and make them sign an agreement to get them fixed. Especially as i see she has already had one litter! A cat can produce over 80,000 cats in a ten year period and there are already so many unwanted cats at shelters already, being euthanised just because they dont have the space to keep them.

I wonder if any of them will listen???
