Bamboo's Story...
Female * DSH/Chocolate Point Mix * Born Summer 2014 * Spayed and up to date on shots

The one snapshot did not really do us justice—because—well bars. We asked Foster Mom if she could get on at better angle but we admit we are a hard duo to catch in a single frame . We move too fast and all you get are those colorful pixilated blocks or a vague blur of fur. This particular photo of us behind bars is from one of our visits to Foster Mom's work place. Later on she was able to get us both in the much better glamour shot in our foster home. . Are we not quite the pair?

We were taken in by our Foster Mom when we were just four days old. Memories of our feline mother are very vague and seem so long ago. We heard that we are called bottle babies. That is because Foster Mom had to take the place of our birth mother for all those baby kitten needs. Bottle feeding, bathing, socialization, diaper changes (well not really - more like encouraging good litter box habits) and the finer points of hunting down and catching mice (the catnip filled variety is our preference). Evidently, we have done well at our lessons because we are now ready to go out into the world and find our own forever home so that Foster Mom can help another litter of kittens.

We are fun loving bundles of fluff. Also, we are something called a mixed breed (well all of the fosters cats are mixed, but in our case they have a slightly better idea of what our mix might include because of our coat pattern).

If you think we would make a good addition to your family, talk to our Foster Mom or one of the volunteers. Since we have been raised by hand since we were very tiny, we love humans. We are not so keen on dogs and, as bottle babies, we are not always good about sharing attention.

We do need to go to our new forever home as a pair.

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

Bamboo, a Gaithersburg Colorpoint Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Colorpoint Shorthair for sale in Gaithersburg, or seeking a Colorpoint Shorthair kitten 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 Colorpoint Shorthair breeders who help with Colorpoint Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gaithersburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
