@Zara I wish, but that is not the case.

@Ripshod Yes! I thought I was going to purchase another cockatiel from a breeder, but it really bothered me because I preach “adopt don’t shop”. It just so happens that a parrotlet in a less than ideal situation went up on Craigslist that same week. I’m picking the parrotlet up on November 2nd! I’m so excited to work with this bird and give her a better life!

Sad day. The sellers never showed up. Luckily we didn't lose any money, just time, but I'm really disappointed. :(
I'm sorry to hear this.

I had a similar thing happen last year. We agreed to buy a budgie off CL...and agreed to meet in a parking lot of a hospital in Ohio. (safety always first)

Took my brother with me...and they never showed up. No money was exchanged (like in your case)...and the exact same ad showed up on CL the next day.

My guess...a scam, possibly a robbery was the plan...someone obviously got scared when they saw two big guys sitting in a car with a bird cage...;)
