Free adoption from a local city turned out to be a a delivery charge from a distant state. You can kiss off any money sent to that guy.
It was nice reading from you regarding my lovely kittens.
I am so happy with the information you've provided, this really proves that
you are really a pet lover. One last thing i will love from you is to assure
me that you will take very good care of this kitten.
Well since i am located at Norfolk, VA.
then i will need to have the kitten delivered over to you there.
In other for me to do so, i will need some
information from you to have the kitten registered at the agency for
shipment and home delivery at your door-step.
I will need the following;
Your full names:...?
Mobile and land-line number:...?
Here are items and documents this kitten will be coming alongside with
# Health guarantee
# Vaccine record
# Registration papers
# Microchip Registration
# Pedigree papers
# Nutrition supplement
# Traveling Crate
# Ownership paper
Once, i have the above information, i will then take the kitten to
the agency for registration against urgent delivery over to your home
address. when i am done with the registration, the agency will then
contact you with more detail and information about the delivery of this
kitten and also on how you will be making the payment of $150 for one
kitten or $250
two kittens to them so that they can change all paper and have your
kitten delivered over to you at your home address at your door-step.
Waiting for your swift reply.
Definitely a scam - I am not sure if all the listings are scams however.
Kittensforadoption.us is a SCAM!!!
This is the correspondence I received from them. I applied to numerous different advertisements offering free kittens and the replies were all in the same vein as this:
Nice reading from you in regards of my Exotic Shorthair kittens .
I still have available for adoption two kittens a boy and a girl .I call the
boy Miki and Winnie the girl .These babies have been trained since
they were a kitten to never scratch on furniture because they were
taught how to use a proper scratching post. They have not been
declawed. My babies have not been spayed. They are strictly a house
cat and have been living in a smoke free and very quiet home.They are
very friendly, very gentle, very playful and well behaved because that
is i raised them and when you meet these yourself you will fall in
love with them. They aren't too demanding of attention. they’ll follow
you around and show an interest in what you’re doing .My babies get
along with everyone, including dogs and other cats and they adjust
well to multi-pet households. they enjoy playing fetch and are willing
to learn to walk on a leash, making them a great choice for anyone who
travels frequently and would like to bring a feline companion along.
They are very intelligent and used to some tricks such as fetch and
even to shake hands. My kittens are handled from birth, monitored and
given the attention needed for them to thrive. They are used to their
litter box The kittens are raised underfoot, not kept in cages and
are in constant human contact on a daily basis. When my kittens leave
my home to go to yours, they're ready to be a loving member of your
family. They had their first vaccines at 7 weeks for distemper,
calicivirus, rhinotracheitis, at 10 weeks they had their 2 vaccines at
10 weeks for Feline Leukemia .They just received their 3rd vaccines
for Rabies. Their parents are purebred Exotic Shorthair and are registered . I
do give out my kittens for adoption to those who love and have a
great passion for this breed .
I fell in love with this breed and want others to learn about them.
Am wondering if its your first time to adopt an Exotic Shorthair Cat ?
Where exactly are you located ?
I am hoping that a pet-loving and caring person or family will accept
my babies into your home and make them part of your life. I am are
not selling them for money because for me that does not feel right, i
am genuinely care for them and all i want is for them to be truly
happy and well taken care of .
You will get all their accessories such as litter box, automatic cat
water fountain, pet food storage container that holds a large bag of
pet food, grooming brushes, pet shampoo, toys, and so much more!
So if you always wanted a new family member like my babies please
contact me back. Am located in Atlanta, GA. I live in a small one
bedroom and with little space for a litter box, I guess I want to have
my life bit easier now...no more cleaning up after fur balls and
dealing with cat hair...I know it sounds horrible. I also have to
adjust my schedule for them. Also, I travel a lot and will be away in
some few days and have no one to care for them...in other words, I
feel that they might receive more love and attention from someone
else! I can't travel for more than a month because of them...I can't
bear to leave them alone for more than that...and it is difficult for
me to find a sitter and i tried calling a cat adoption center but feel
it would be cruel to leave them caged in such a hectic cold setting.
It would be frightening for them to be left there !!! So i was told the
best way to give them out its through a cat adopting website .
I do love them but for a while now, trying to maintain them has been
getting in the way... of my life...if that makes any sense. I know I
must sound like a terrible owner. I would feel better about giving
them up if I knew they were in a loving environment. I have been
struggling with this decision for some time now...I have given their
mother best home I could for 7 years and now I would like to pass the
kittens along to someone who would love them even more and possibly
give them a better home. They are extremely adorable, its going to be
easier for you to adopt them because of their beauty and because they
are so affectionate.
Attached to this mail are some pics .
Best regards .
Kittensforadoption.us is definitely a SCAM!!! I received 3 different emails from this website from these addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org
All similar to this:
We are glad reading you in regards to our Birman kittens on adoption . We still have 3 kittens available they are 13 weeks old and we are left with 1 male we named Mika, and 2 females we named Bella and Shana, their both parents are Birmans as you can see with their perfect fur. The kittens are very healthy, they have all their shots and vet records up to date. We are giving the kittens out now because we moved to a new building where the landlord sets a restriction to animals and we are really busy with our new jobs here in Maryland, since the babies are part of the family we prefer giving them out on adoption to reasonable, knowledgeable and cautious people who can offer them the lots and love of care they will be missing from us rather than selling them to people interested in breeding and making money on their backs any of these babies will be the perfect match for your home . The kittens are well socialized and use to children since we have 2 children and other animals since before we relocated we lived in a neighborhood with several animals . As for their individual characters I will describe each in two words, Mika-naughty and playful, Bella-lazy and loves hugs and Shana- a little aggressive and feeds much . Any of them will be the best playmate and companion which will fill your home . Also, I would never like that my babies should end up in a shelter or animal rescue, feel free to mail me back If you are willing to get my kitten(s). I would like to ask you some few questions before we proceed :
1) Are you familiar with pets/ever had one before, if yes what breed ?
2) Can you send me updates & pics of the kitten if I let you have any ?
3) How soon do you want the kitten(s) and can you tell which one(s) you fall for ?
I am sorry for being so inquisitive we are just being concerned about the kind of place this babies will be going to, we love them so we don't want to get rid of them their welfare matters much for us . So if you have the chance of taking any home you will just have to pay for their shipping in case you can't get to us at the address below ;
7034 Chadds Ford Drive,
Brandywine MD, 20613
The kittens are up to date with the following;
*VACCINES & WORMINGS UPDATED
*INFO ON CATS CARE.
We could organize transport for the kittens to get to you in the shortest time through a secured pet travel agency the same one which got the kittens here and it will cost approximately 250$. Here attached are pictures of the babies .We are hoping to hear from you soon in order to conclude the adoption .

Definitely a SCAM!!!
I have contacted about 15 ads from kittensforadoption.us, and they all had these in common
1) They just "happened to" relocate somewhere else just a few days/months ago
2) Most of them just "happened to" have a medical condition or something that forced them to move to another state
3) Delivery Charge of 200+
4) Appeal to emotion & even when asked about being a scam, "swore" they were not and again, appealed to emotion.
5) Similar strange way of talking on most of them (used "ok" weirdly)
6) Made it seem like they cared a lot about their kittens, but all of them literally asked "the same, word-by-word" questions
7) They all came with the same documents & etc.
8) All the emails seemed like they were sent by the same person twicking it a little bit.
9) When said that you couldn't afford the delivery fee, they all said that then "you would only have to pay $100, and that they would cover the rest".
10) They claimed that they could see you're "a real pet lover" although you've only said like 5 sentence.
and the list goes on and on...
I wish I could attach ALL the emails that had been sent to me so that you could see the ridiculous similarities.
I am very happy to read from you so soon, sincerely I am impressed
with your response. I will like to add some more qualities of the kittens
that was not mentioned in the previous mail I sent to you.
-They are house trained .
-They are socialized with kids and other house hold pets
-They get angry when you shout at them, so don't do that.
-They are 12 Weeks old
-These kittens are not for sale they are for free adoption so you are
not paying me any money to have any of them.
They will be coming along side with all details of vaccination,
de-wormed and microchip. Since we have made up our mind to let the baby
into to your home, can you promise to us that the kitten will be well
looked after and you guys will keep us updated with monthly pictures so we
can know how the kitten is doing with you.
My dear I used to live at Anderson County (Texas) but recently I was
transferred to Palm Springs (California). Since my relocation the
kittens have not got my care and attention as they used to. So I feel
it is time for me to re-home them.
I wish to give them for free adoption to any interested person.
If you can come over for a view of the kittens and select yours,
it will be most perfect. My address is 2291 S Palm Canyon Dr, Palm
Springs, CA 92264. However, distance should not be a barrier. Thus, if
you are not so close to my location, we can use a pet courier service
and they will get the kitten
delivered to your home address in less than no time. I don't know if
you have any other
idea, if yes then I am open to listening to it. If no, then the
delivery agency would be
the best option.
These kittens were originally four but last week one female was
flown to Brookville to her new home. In less than seven hours her new
owners sent pictures of them receiving the kitten from the courier
men. From this first
experience I can say without much reservations that the service of the
delivery agency is quite fast and efficient. If you finally settle for
the courier option,
then I shall need the following information to register the kitten for
to your location.
The required information include;
As soon as I have the details, I shall sort out the necessary paper work
before taking the kitten to the courier company for registration
and delivery to your home. I will bear the cost of the registration and other
paper works, while you will pay $250 which is the delivery fee of the kitten.
The payment would be made upfront directly to the delivery agency and not to me.
My main objective is for these kittens to have a lovely and forever
family, so the money you will pay is for the delivery fee of the kitten.
The kitten also come with the following papers;
# Health guarantee
# Vaccine record
# Registration papers
# Microchip Registration
# Nutrition supplement
# Traveling Crate
Regards and waiting for your kind respond.
Thanks for the interest in regards to the bengals i have for adoption.
There is a male and female available and are pure breed bengals. They
are vet checked and will come with all papers needed. The kittens are
very playful and are all of absolute temperament as they also love
playing with kids and other household animals . They are 11 weeks old
and are brothers and sisters. I am giving the kittens out for an
adoption with no adoption fee, this is because we just relocate to a
non pets apartment and we can't keep them any longer. I will be very
willing to give you these kittens if you can promise me of never to
sell them, also do get back to me with the answers of our question
below so i can have an idea of where our kittens will be going to
-Have you own a pet before?
- Do you have a vet doctor?
-where precisely are you locate
- Are you a breeder?
- will you take both or just one? if one what sex?
-Do you have pets loving children at home?
- Give me a Brief Description about your Environment?
-Will you take good care for the babies like your own child?
All i need is just a very caring and loving home for our babies where
they will be well loved and spoiled to rotten.
Thanks and will be waiting to read from you again
