Barnabas's Story...
Name: Barnabas
Color: Brown and Black Tabby
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Gender: Male
Age: 8 months
Barnabas is a super affectionate young boy looking for an equally affectionate forever home. He is available for adoption at Whatcom Humane Society.
Big fan of: Attention!
Not a fan of: Noise! Barnabas is a very confident young boy but he is still unsure of all the new noises of being indoors and would prefer that he not be carried around, at least while he is adjusting to the sounds of a home. When a noise startles him, he makes an attempt to escape and can be pretty hard to hold.
Special features: Barnabas has had a rough start in life. He came into the shelter with a dozen other cats and would really like to get all the love and care he needs and deserves. Barnabas is the kind of boy who will be all up in your business seeking attention. When he first arrived, he was rubbing his nose on his kennel so hard in his desperate attempt for attention that he made it bleed.
Dream Home: Barnabas would happily live with another cat and is confident enough for a mellow, cat-savvy dog. Barnabas would love to have children in his home so long as they respect his desire not to be held.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barnabas, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
