YSAK 127: My cat goes "woof"

Posted recently in "dogs, puppies for sale":


I lost my cat Fluffy the day before schooland I need to get him back! He's grey with white paws and white on his face and some on his chest with green eyes and absolutely beautiful. (Around 2rs old.)
Please if you find my kitty email me, or call

Another ad for Fluffy was posted two months ago under "cats, kitten for sale".

So, I send our species-confused friend an email: ''Hi. You're looking for a lost cat? Please don't post in "dogs for sale".''

S/he replies ... after a while ... "Sorry, but I Can Post That Whereever I Like Until I Find My Cat."

Unfortunately, Kijiji rules don't allow you to post "Whereever" just because you feel like it. If you're not selling a dog, you shouldn't be posting in dogs for sale. If you've lost a cat, you don't have a cat for sale. And if your cat has been missing for two months, I hate to sound mean, but posting an ad in "dogs for sale" describing your missing pet as "absolutely beautiful" is just not going to help.
