    Hello,

    I saw a post on here the other day about a kitten being sold for £200. I was just browsing the kittens available in our area and came across this one for a tabby for £401.

    Kitten in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire ( Cats For Sale )

    My guess is that's it's a typo in the advert. What do you think?

    I'd agree with the above, although mainly just because £401 is a very random price - wouldn't suprise me if it was £400, what with how some people are on those ad sites!

    Gorgeous kittens, bargain at £40 (if that's the intend price!) I want a kitten again now!!:)

    It can't be a typo for "£40 1 tabby" unless the seller is a complete idiot- with pets4homes you have a box into which you type the price,and what is in that box comes up in the large brown type. I just experiemnted with typing "40 1 tabby" on one of my ads and it lets you get as far as tabb before running out of characters, and it does come up as "40 1" if you type "40 1"

    My conclusion is that the seller is an idiot :smilewinkgrin:

    I phoned her to find out but as soon as I said I was asking after the kitten she said they'd both been sold!
