    was browsing kitten ads and i came across one for 3 week old kittens at £200 each available for booking.. does that seem extreme to anyone else?

    If they are asking £200 for a moggy then i think the kittens will be with them for some time to come because that is a rediculous price to ask, If you are considering spending that sort of money then if you look about you could get a pedigree without registration papers. But if its just a moggy you want then ive seen lots advertised for around £80 which i think is a much fairer price. good luck............CHRIS

    If anyone is seriously contemplating £200 for a moggy (somehow I doubt it!) email me, I've got a very friendly, fully vaccinated and microchipped registered pedigree available for that! (mind you, the poor thing does have a protruding sternum and a tail kink!)

    well if there pedgree then they can be 400 and up i paid 300 for my ragdoll but if they moggies then maby thats a bit much for my moggie i payed 10 but i think people put a high price on kitten because they have to feed them befor they go and some give them jabs or take them to the vets for a check up so to cover all them costs they sell them higher

    Do you think they might be asking that much to deter people who might buy them for fighting-dog training?

    Would be better off going to the RSPCA and adopting one for 70 - it would be neutered, microchipped and have all vacs aswell! 200 is a ridculous price to pay for moggy, very suprised to hear that some have been reserved already at that price; personally i'd look into getting a pedigree if i had that sort of money to spend!

    My local Post Office has cards in the window and someone is advertising four kittens for 20 pounds each. The ad was up for a few days and then altered to say "only two left".

    our cat is a moggy but has had 2 litters (she was booked to be spayed but they said she is pregnant and too far so they wouldnt do it :mad: )
    but we sell ours for £45 each and ours are vet checked - thats just ridiculous
