What is the best way to find a new home for adult cats?

You have a friend with two well-behaved adult cats. He does not want the two cats any more. You want to give them to the Best Home Humanly Possible (not a rescue organization, ideally) and so far can't find any friends or family who can take them in. You posted your Craigslist ad with the adorable picture of them grooming each other, and now what?

Only caveats: the cats are adult, the cats aren't great with other animals (at least high-energy ones, it makes them hide though they're not aggressive), and the cats take some time to warm up to new people, so they are not awesomely affectionate off the bat.
Are there other great sites to find homes for these cats? Tips and tricks for ensuring the new owners are awesome? Do you include an adoption fee? No adoption fee?
(Assume that I can't take the cats on myself due to completely unstable financial and housing situations, and the owner in question is absolutely unwilling to consider keeping them and plans on taking them to a rescue organization at the end of the month)
