ADOPT: Tommy & Lexie - 4yo/2yo male/female, vaccinated, non-biters

Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a dog, we have been notified by breed rescue that, at long last, our number has come up and ... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!

We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children up for adoption this weekend!

They are described as:
One male -- his name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had chicken Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained and gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.

One female -- her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy and can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls and little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training. Shouldn't take long at all.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them. That is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.

I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here! They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.

PS - If you laughed or understood the seriousness of this posting, please repost it in other areas of the country as well as continue to repost it. It doesn't matter how quickly it was flagged (this has already been flagged twice within a matter of hours in Worcester) the point is that SOMEONE SOMEWHERE will have read it and thought about it for a minute. Maybe that person will look at the pets they are rehoming and reconsider giving them away or dropping them off at a pound. Maybe they will help counsel someone that they know is doing it. Keep the silver lining in mind, otherwise those of us in rescue will succomb to how incredibly morbid the whole situation is and we can't risk any good people giving up. I can't take credit for this posting, it was in the Best Of Craigslist section but this can and should be applied to EVERYWHERE and I think that the original poster would take it as a compliment to see that their ad helped someone along the way.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: healthy, cute, white 6wo male cat

Our friend found a mother cat with five young kittens outside her home, believed to be abandoned. She contacted us and we took them in cos the kittens were all ill with cat flu and crusty eyes.

Anyway, they are all nursed back to health and of the five we have managed to get 3 adopted and we have decided to keep one (the only female and still a little fragile from the illness).

We are left with a cute, white 5.5 week boy who is healthy, has a good wet food appetite and toilet trained. We need an adopter for him. Please help to post the word out if you can. Greatly appreciated.

[rehomed!] SOS! ADOPT: Tim and Tam, sterilised 1yo male cats - owner diagnosed with cancer

Tim and Tam, both sterilized one year old male cats were owned by deaf and dumb parents at Tampines St 22 since they were kittens. Most of the time they live in the cage and released for an hour a day within the house. Recently wife was diagnosed with cancer and the family decided to give up the cats, Tim and Tam for adoption.

Tim and Tam is temporarily being housed in a cage by one of my neighbours until they find a suitable home.

These cats are domesticated and like to play when they are released from the cage. We hope that Tim and Tam will find a good home where they no longer will have to live their entire lives in a cage.
