Free to good home!!

Hello everyone nice to see ya'll again....lookin forward to some new chats and new friends.....like visiting an old neighbourhood this place sure does look different....lol

Iknow Iknow....your looking at the title of my post in rage .... me too

I am looking for a very antique post or if someone else has a good story with pics or not about what happens when we give up our beloved pets in a free to good home post....the danger we may be sending our sweetheart to, believing the person when they say "No worries I will love him/her to DEATH" not realizing the warning we just heard.

I see this post so much in Kijiji and others and would love to enlighten a few people. Sometimes they just dont realize that there is a world of horrible people out there that are waiting for those wonderful words to their ears "Free to good home".

So if anyone can help me in my quest I would be grateful

These words are so sad. What the hell is wrong with people today??? We give up our beloved pets? If you give up your pets, they were hardly beloved! Unless you are losing everything and can't even feed yourself or almost at death bed with asthma, then these would be the only reasons for giving up your pets. Poor animals become victims of their stupid owners. Giving them away to strangers is so dangerous, they could end up in a research lab, for money. My female cats will be with me till the end. As a cat rescuer, I advise people to first try to place their "beloved" pets with friends, neighbors, co-workers, people they know.

I'm torn on that issue. I'm looking for a cat/kitten and for awhile I was exclusively looking at Kijiji because there are lots of pets that need good homes. Now I've shifted to looking for kittens at the SPCA, but I if I were to look for an older cat, I'd look at kijiji.

But I suppose it's fair, you never can tell who is getting your cat.

Our Oakville HS have a cat-blitz this weekend,$50 you will get a cat,already altered plus micro-chipped and healthy,they have too many cats.:sad:
Anyone who gives their animal to anybody that comes along,for free,obviously don't care one iota what happens to that animal,it's sickening!

Amazing....can you share?....my computer crashed and I lost all my digital pics of chico except the two that were on a picturetrail site I also have a few that I got developed at the photo shop but I would love more.

I was looking at Kijiji for free stuff....my girlfriend has obtained some good stuff from that site. I need a computer desk

If you want a heart breaker, I can give you details about a horse I used to own that I placed with someone. I will NEVER do it again, even with references and guarantees...
