Tess's Story...
Approx DOB: March 2012

Tess was abandoned, along with her two kittens, outside a local dentist office. She is a tame kitty, and was very scared to find herself in strange surroundings while trying to protect and care for her kittens. Luckily, the family was quickly brought into foster care with Furry Friends Network, and all have thrived with love, good food, and comfort. Tess is a very sweet girl who likes to be petted and brushed, and who is learning to be a lap cat. She is very quiet and unassuming, but when she is in the mood to play she turns into a dynamo! She is especially fond of large catnip toys which she can wrestle, and her special fur mouse on a wand which she loves to chase and pounce upon. Tess likes to play with her foster parents, but she is equally happy playing by herself. She does not seem comfortable with other kitties, and she becomes very protective of her space when she meets others, even if they are not aggressive. She would likely be happiest in a quiet home with no other pets, where she could be the center of attention and would not feel threatened by other animals. Tess will be a wonderful, loving companion for someone hoping to share their home with just one kitty. Please give Tess a chance to experience the love she deserves in a forever home.

This kitty has had initial vaccinations, de-worming, flea preventative, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and been micro-chipped and altered (or will be micro-chipped and altered prior to adoption).

Adoption fee is 1/2 off for the second kitty adopted at same time. Adoption application, phone interview, home visit, and adoption fee required (+ PA Sales tax).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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