Talking cats?

“Gray and white kitten was picked up by her owner 30 minutes after posting. Until cats start talking, Front Porch Forum is the next best thing.”

Town animal control officer tips for finding lost pets…

Posted on a central Vermont FPF today…

Sunday’s FPF posting about the found cat on Center Rd sure brought me a lot of responses! Happily, she is back home with her family as of last night!

There are many other lost cats in our community, and I thought I’d post some suggestions.

First, do not give up hope. The kitty who made it home last night was almost FIVE MILES from her house, and had been missing for a week. When your cat or dog goes missing, you should post it on your local Front Porch Forum, and use the check-off to let neighboring FPFs see the post. You should also post on Facebook… and email all pertinent information to [your local] Humane Society.

If you find a stray animal, please call [your local animal control officer]… I’d also like to make a plug here for micro-chipping your pets — it’s safe, economical, and can make the difference for getting your pet back.  And one more thing — LICENSE your dog with our town clerk – that really helps me to figure out where they belong! Thank you all for caring about our community’s animals.





Sure beats dealing with scams…

#VT – Just wanted to let everyone know I sold the iMac I posted the other day to another FPF member.  Front Porch Forum sure beats dealing with scams from Nigeria on Craigslist.

Neighbor house switcheroo…

#VT - Sadly, I will soon be selling my large house in the village. I very much want to stay right here. If you are selling, or know of anybody who is or might be selling a small (2 bedroom?) house or condo in Richmond Village, please contact me. Thank you.”

Posted by Joanna on the Richmond Front Porch Forum.  The next day, she received from Christy…

Hi Joanna – We have a 2 bedroom townhouse that we love, but that we will eventually outgrow.  We’ve been looking for homes in the village… we’d love to stay here.  Have you already sold your house?

Joanna shared with us just today…

I am thrilled to report that, two months after my initial FPF posting, I  purchased the townhouse and Christy and her family purchased my home.  Amazingly we each found the perfect home and we were able to sell our homes without ever putting them on the market.  Thank you, Front Porch Forum!
