Where did you get your cat/s? Breeder's, rescues, etc?

Hello Everyone
How did you get your kittys? From breeder's, shelter's, adopting them because they are homeless, etc?
I found Catty when I was going for a walk then took her home. Mum and I put an ad in the local newspaper and nobody took her in. So that's how I got my Catty I have had her for nearly 8 years now and she is 12.

I saw Kitty in the local newspaper and I got him from a purebreed Siamese cat breeder as an 8 week old kitten.

I saw Eddie & Enzo on a facebook group as 'Free to good home' I know that often means 'dont care what happens as long as they are gone' so i took them because i know i will give them a good home and happy lives!
There was a girl on this facebook group who was taking all the animals that came up 'free to good home' and selling them on a different group.

Cassie was found on the side of the road near our house(read as middle of nowhere) with another kitten. The other kitten hid in a pipe and Cassie was the only one we could get to.

We got Cherry at our local cat shelter.

Blaze was from a lady that had caught some feral kittens behind a dumpster. We stil gave her 50 dollars I think even though he was free.

Blacky was a semi-feral that started hanging around the property bcause my father left scraps of food outside for the wildlife. Took over a year to tame her.

My first cat Lucky was found underneath a stage my father was tearing down , only a few weks old and all alone.

i got aster and cody from a local breeder. i am allergic to cats, there are times when i go into a house with cats, i start sneezing having trouble breathing from instantly to within a half hour. but really wanted to get kitties! i read about how siberians were a hypoallergenic breed and came to visit the breeder's home for an allergy test. hung out and chatted with her for an hour with about 5 of her girls in the room and did not sneeze or have any reaction once. i was so excited and put my name on a waitlist. fast forward 7 months later and we took 2 kittens home.

i would support getting a pet from a shelter if it weren't from my allergies. i know many people who just deal with their allergies and take medication and shots, but i didn't want to chance it.

Sherbert came from a pregnant cat that was dumped near our home when we lived in the country. Paws and Squeek from the same mom, before she was able to be fixed and rehomed. (back then we had not found a local vet that delt with cats... yes it was a long time ago.) BlackJack and Pepper came from a Siamese female that escaped a BYB and Sherbert brought home...(we kept that Oops litter, rehomed the kittens and bought, spayed and rehomed the female just to get her out of the situation once we found out where she came from). Archie we got from a shelter. He was in a cage for 4 months and looked like he had given up. Now he follows my daughter around everywhere.

We got our first kitten, a 8 week old brown mackeral tabby DSH girl from our neighbor who found 4 kittens in a paper bag in a ditch near her driveway. Unfortunately "Miss Moppet" was attacked by a neighbor's tomcat when she was 5 months old, and had to be put down because of her severe injuries. A few years later, a silvery-grey stubby tailed Russian Blue/Manx mix followed our kids home. Newspaper "found" ads and flyers didn't turn up any owners and we lived in a small town that didn't have an animal shelter, so "Max" stayed. He spurred my interest in Manx and lived to 17 yrs. A year after we fot Max I got into breeding reg'd Manx and did so for 18 yrs. My present two Devon Rex were purchased from a breeder. I'd admired Devons for a long time when I used to show my Manx. Just loved their pixie faces and soft wavey coats.
