Shelby's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Shelby's Story...
Shelby was rescued from a shelter, when she was brought in as a stray. She is about 5 years old, and a very tiny girl, weighing only 5 lbs. We have found that she has luxating patellas (knee caps), which arent a problem for her, except for the fact that she seems a bit wobbly when she walks and stands. She seems to not like the foster persons other cats, so might be happier being the only cat in the home. She is also a bit scared of hyper dogs, and since she has the knee cap issue, may not be able to run away quickly if a dog or cat or small child should chase her. I think she should not go to a home with small kids, or hyper dogs either.
She is very sweet, but absolutely does not like to be brushed or have her nails cut. If you see her, you can see that someone cut her fur quite bad. She looks like she was put in a blender. Her fur is so choppy and awfully cut, but she is still adorable. She has beautiful huge eyes, and a teeny tiny nose.
She needs to put on some weight, but that should happen fairly quickly. She is a good eater.
Persians require quite a bit of grooming to maintain their coat, so keep in mind that she will need to be brushed daily, and also, may require going to a groomer periodically.
She can manage to jump on the bed, and likes to sleep on you or next to you, and I wasnt sure if she could walk up or down stairs, but she manages to do that as well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a East Brunswick Persian cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Persian for sale in East Brunswick, or seeking a Persian cat from a breeder in East Brunswick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick 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 Persian breeders who help with Persian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in East Brunswick paves the way for another one to be saved.
