Have a little get-together at your house, “just because.” Don’t tell them its really a “Find Your Kittens A Home Party.” But, people are more likely to adopt one of your kittens if they see them in person.

There are dozens of Facebook groups in your local area dedicated to pets and items for sale. First and foremost, don’t be greedy, there is no reason to ask for a price for your kittens – it is much easier to find them homes if they are free. But, you will be amazed by the amount of responses you will get by posting in a few local Facebook groups that you have some kittens in need of a good home. Of course, you will want to include an irresistibly cute photo in the ad.
Craigslist is another great outlet courtesy of the internet to help you find homes for pets. You will obviously want to chat with the people a bit that respond and feel them out before you hand over one of your beloved kittens – but you will most likely find at least two serious people in search of a pet.
Believe it or not, there are still newspapers being circulated and people do still read them. Especially older folks, who have soft spots for fuzzy little kittens. Check with your local papers and see what the prices are for the classifieds. Some papers even let you post free ads if they are under a certain word limit.

Ahh, the good old-fashioned signs.
