    Aruban Orphan Kittens Need Homes!!

    Hi -

    We have 3 kittens available for immediate adoption - Fred, Wilma and Pebbles.
    If you have room in your heart and home - please consider adopting an
    Aruban kitten. These guys were orphaned and a young age and have
    totally bonded to humans. It is so hard to find them a home in Aruba
    as most places are "inside/outside" and these kittens have no "street smarts"
    to be able to survive the dogs, feral cats and other dangers that are here.

    We have placed other kittens in homes in the US. The process is very simple and as all our adopted homes can testify - these kittens have great personalities. They are well rounded as they
    have been exposed to our resident cats and our dog.

    Please look on our main page for more information. We need to get these
    guys homes asap due to some personal reasons I am having at the moment.
    My heart is breaking not knowing if these guys have homes - please just
    take a look and see if you can help!!!

    hey lady

    have you ever thought of having a small table at the little flea mkts that are at the resorts?
    it is probably a pain in the bum, you could have some flyers and photos and tons of info to give to the tourists.
    mick too could have some of his photography posters which are LOVELY.
    i know it sounds kind of silly to be out hawking kittens..............but you never know.

    i will answer although liz will answer too i am sure

    from what i know

    there is an interview and a meet and greet

    the cat has to have a health certificate from a vet in aruba
    the certificate is a statement of health and safe travel

    the adopting parent is given the kitty and its carrier and the carrier fits under the seat as carry on

    there is a fee for transporting the kitty as carry on. (i think less than $100)

    Those flea markets are not really taking anyone - Mick has asked them before and they are pretty much not taking anyone else.

    Andrea - I'm thinking of hiring you!!! LOL! You are good.

    Yes - it's very easy to take a kitten back.

    1. Come and visit us and meet the zoo
    2. We'll check with your airline about the cost of the "ticket" for the kitten - is about $75 - $150. We can see if we can offset this price for you depending on our donations we have received at that time.
    3.. We will take the kitten to the vet for the certificate of health - and if they are old enough a rabies shot
    4. We will meet you at your lobby the day you leave, with a kitten in a approved carrier, harness and leash and your travel documents. We'll take care of everything.

    We have had many kittens go back to the US without a hitch. US customs have actually been known to "welcome the latest US citizen" and you are usually the delight of the air attendants who tend to go "gaga" over the kittens.

    The kittens have no trouble in the carriers - they just tend to sleep and hang out. Our kittens are really mellow and are very good "flyers".

    Thanks for asking!! We really need homes for these guys as I am having
    issues w/ my 82 year old parents at the moment and it's not going well.....

    Assuming no changes in my schedule I can bring one back to the northeast next month around the middle of the month. I'm working on expanding my window of off days a little bit, so I can dive for a day or two should I need to go down.

    Thanks Chadd - Let's hope someone takes you up of the offer!

    Having some major issues at the moment with my 82 year old parents
    and it would be such a relief to me if these little guys got homes.
    They have the best personalities and the tigers are really beautiful.
    We can't capture on camera how beautiful they are!

    Good news! Fred is now "Aruban Fred" and has found a great home on the island.

    We are still looking for homes for Pebbles and Wilma!
