I would say don't pay for a kitten out of the paper. I really think you should rescue one, but some might say the kittens people are selling (or even giving away) in the paper may end up in shelters anyway. Either way, its your decision.
As far as rescues being strict, I hope they are! As long as you have a vet to refer that you're a good mommy and YOU know you can care for this cat, I see no reason for them to decline you. Do you have to pay a lot for these rescues? I know my humane society kitty cost me about $60. I think if someone wanted to get a cat to use as bait they certainly wouldn't pay for it! I would think they'd go to the paper looking for free cats and kittens. There are always plenty of ads like that.
Hm... well good luck with whatever you end up doing and let us know about the new one as soon as you get him/her!
