Meet in a public place. My most recent ex tom was from Craig's list. The person placing him was trying to place two cats the neighbor had abandoned in the apartment after s/he left. I met her in a parking lot. I'm sure she was as leery of meeting as stranger as I was. BTW that was a year ago and he's my little fire plug -a solidly built, loving, ginger boy.
He is total garbage! Quick! Hide him on my trailer (Petstorejunkie).
