Socks's Story...
Socks is currently being kept indoors only, in a spare bedroom. She is a friendly cat that loves to be petted. She shows occasional signs of skittishness if approached too quickly or a hand reaches to pet her in a way she feels is too forthright.

Socks will need time and patience to trust a new home. It took her about 3 weeks to become more comfortable in her new foster home. Since she has become more comfortable, she comes and rubs and enjoys pets. She will even nibble fingers as though she is trying to nurse but then stops once she realizes nothing is coming out. In her previous home where she was born and enjoyed her first year and a half, she would sleep in the bed with her human companions.

Having grown up an indoor/outdoor kitten and cat and then losing her outdoor access it is only natural for her to have a slightly skittish nature. If she remains an indoor cat, she should adjust if given enough time and patience.

To adopt you must first complete an adoption application and either come to an adoption event or arrange to meet the cat in its foster home. We do not do same day adoptions so, generally, we can only adopt within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Socks, a Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gaithersburg.

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