I was interested to read "Have you checked the children?" in the Letters Section of the August 17th Coast. The correspondent, "Sick Of Solicitors," had noticed an ad for "Exotic kittens" in the Business Personals section of another local paper and was very concerned about child prostitution. I was unable to locate that ad in the library backfile of either local paper so I can't be sure, but SOS might be comforted to know that there is a breed of cat called the Exotic Shorthair, often simply called the Exotic, and there are Exotic breeders in the HRM. It's extremely likely the ad was perfectly innocent and was simply put in the wrong section of the paper.
