I want to adopt a purebred singapura cat but i know they are pretty rare and don’t have a clue on where to find one.

To “adopt”? That would imply finding one at a shelter which isn’t going to happen. Pedigreed kittens only come from the mating of pedigreed cat to pedigreed cat of the same breed and are only found at breeders.
The Singapura is quite rare and since they’re small litters are very small – usually only one or two kittens – which drives the price up. You won’t find a Singapura kitten to BUY from a breeder for less than $ 1,500. I know of only two breeders – one in BC, Canada and one in Alberta, Canada. TICA’s website may list others http://www.tica.org/public/breeds/sg/breeders.php
Why do you want a cat of this breed, though? Clearly you’ve never seen one in person or met breeders or you’d already know where to buy one. So are you picking this breed solely based on photos you’ve seen on the internet? Not the right way to go about selecting a breed.
edit: Cheetah – clearly you’ve never seen a Singapura as none of those cats listed as Singapuras at those are the least bit Singapura! Pretty irresponsible of them to list them as such when they clearly AREN’T.
