Furry Follies: Tales from Indiana Pets Craigslist

Are you looking for some laughs? Look no further than Craigslist’s pets section in Indiana. With a wide range of animals up for adoption, people from all over the state post funny and sometimes bizarre listings, providing endless entertainment for us all. Here are some of the best stories from Indiana pets Craigslist.

The Big, Bad, and Furry

Let’s start with the most common furry friends on Craigslist: dogs and cats. But don’t be fooled, they can still have some wild personalities.

The Perfect Dog for Surviving an Apocalypse

The title of one Craigslist ad reads, “If you’re looking for the perfect dog to aid you in your search for survival in an apocalypse, look no further.” The ad goes on to describe a dog named Rufus who is “built like a tank” and can “smell danger from a mile away.” The owner even includes a picture of Rufus wearing a gas mask, just to drive the point home.

The Cat Who Thinks He’s a Dog

Sometimes, cats have personalities that resemble a dog more than a cat. One ad reads, “Meet Mittens, the cat who thinks he’s a dog. He loves playing fetch, going on walks, and even responds to commands like a good boy.” This cat sounds like he’s a better dog than some actual dogs out there.

Everything Else

Now, let’s venture into the more exotic animals on Craigslist. From turtles to pigs, there’s no limit to the types of pets people are willing to adopt.

The Pet Turtle with a Napoleon Complex

“I have a pet turtle named Tiny who has a Napoleon complex,” is the opening line of one ad. The owner goes on to describe how Tiny will start attacking anything that gets too close to his area of the tank. It seems that even turtles have a little bit of a temper from time to time.

The Pig Who’s Too Cute to Eat

When it comes to pigs, we usually think of them as a food source. However, one ad shows us that pigs can also make great, adorable pets too. “Meet Hamlet, my pet pig who is too cute to eat,” the ad begins. Hamlet is described as “playful, loving, and always up for a good cuddle.” Who could resist that?

The Weird, The Wacky, and The Wonderful

Finally, let’s dive into some of the truly weird and wonderful creatures that can be found on Indiana pets Craigslist.

The Snake Who Has a Heart of Gold

In one ad, a snake named Slinky is described as “the most affectionate snake you’ll ever meet.” The owner goes on to say that Slinky loves to wrap himself around your arm and hang out, almost like a scarf. Who knew snakes could be so cuddly?

The Hedgehog Who’s a Little Too Thirsty

When it comes to animals that are both weird and wonderful, hedgehogs are pretty high up on the list. But one hedgehog listed on Craigslist caught our eye for a different reason. “Meet Prickles, my hedgehog who just can’t seem to get enough of his water bottle,” the ad reads. Included are pictures of Prickles sitting in his water bowl, sipping away. Hey, everyone needs their hydration!
