Jelly Bean's Story...

Every morning, I get up and put fresh food in Jelly Bean’s bowl. Instead of rushing toward it, she stares at me with utter awe. It makes my world stop and my heart melt.

Jelly Bean is small, sweet, and loves to jump after balls. Hence, the name.

That said, when it comes to ball hockey and slap shots, she’s wicked! She also cheats. She’s not above scooping balls up with her two paws and placing them in her net (the space at the bottom of my dresser has become an attacking zone).

She’s made me laugh aloud.

What truly surprises me about this little sweetheart is her resilience. She was left to fend for herself as a kitten. She was pregnant more than once. Then, she was caged for 5 months and she wasn’t even two years old!

Despite all the joy she exudes – and gives – her trauma is evident in that she’s terrified of touch. She actually cringes if you put your hand toward her (I suspect she went through harrowing abuse). It’s heartbreaking. In addition, she occasionally yowls at night (though that's become so much better!).

Jelly Bean is the sweetest, funniest little bit, but she needs a patient adopter – a constant companion who accepts her as she is. It’s not easy. It’s hard not to touch a little pet that's so full of happiness and love. Hopefully in time, that’ll change. But there’s no guarantee. What I can promise is that she’ll break your heart while making it bigger than you imagined.

Oh, and she comes with 24 super balls!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jelly Bean, a Vancouver 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 Vancouver, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Vancouver.

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