I think that sounds like a great idea, Kim! It's true that you can't scare them off right away. I'm trying to sell my motorcyle, and I know this is vastly different than trying to get someone to adopt a cat, but what Terry always say is "First of all you have to get them to call. Then once they come and look at the bike, it's gone." It's the same with kitties. First of all they have to inquire. Once you know they are interested, then you can do a more thorough interigation to make sure they're suitable.
I thought you had decided to keep all those you have and not take in anymore, but I can understand your change of thinking because there are so many out there that need help, and you're one of the best kitty mommies I know and could do a world of good for a lot of kitties.
Oh, and I want to add that by doing it this way, you're setting yourself up for a lot more phone calls and a lot more work because you'll have to do some of the investigation work that normally scared them off, but in the end, if that results in more adoptions, it will be worth it. (as an example, I have to weed out all the idiots that they can get my bike for less than $10,000.00 when I'm asking $13,900.00 for it. But at least they called, and if they would show up they would see the bike is worth every penny of that, and would immediately forget about their $10,000.00 limit.)
