Rufus's Story...
Rescued Kittens... Trash or Treasure???

This sweet little cat family was born next to someone's garage. The homeowner did not seek any help for them, and eventually announced that he was going to "throw them in the river." Fortunately a rescue group learned of the situation and was able to take custody of 5 kittens and mom. Could one man's trash... be another man's or woman's treasure??

Despite the homeowner's hostile attitude, some neighborhood kids must have been playing with these little guys, as they were already very well socialized when we received them. All are very playful yet gentle, and when picked up and cuddled, you will hear a sweet purrrrrr. ALL 5 are boys (must have been a handful for mom)! Rascal and Rebel are black and white like their mommy. Rufus is an adorable brown tabby. (The all-black ones have been adopted.)

These kitties love to play together and would get along well in any combination, or with another kitten-friendly cat you already have. They would do best adopted as a pair or with another kitty! Two are not much more trouble than one, and they are such fun to watch playing together. They will keep each other company while you are at work -- and they are more likely to play with EACH OTHER than YOUR CURTAINS!

Kitties are about 8 months old and have been neutered, tested FIV/FELV negative, and received the age-appropriate vaccinations. They do a great job using the litterbox -- without any instruction (or demonstration) from us whatsoever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rufus, a Alamo Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Alamo, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Alamo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Alamo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Alamo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Alamo paves the way for another one to be saved.
