Maggie's Story...
Hi! I'm Maggie, and I'm one beautiful, bright-eyed cat. I’ve lived at FOHA most all of my life, and I’m finally ready to find my family. See, I came to FOHA as a kitten, and I lived in a foster home with canines who thought they ruled the roost. As I grew from kitten to teen, I left my foster home and came to the FOHA cattery. I spent most of my time hiding – and, to be honest, I didn’t help ingratiate myself to people. I would find a place to hiss or hide, letting people know that I simply wanted to be left alone. It took me some time to even warm up to my feline roommates. The folks at FOHA struggled to understand what would make me a happy cat. Apparently I needed time to learn who I am as a cat and to gain confidence that I am worthy of love. Recently, I have turned a corner – and I’m anxiously accepting pets. Instead of hiding away at the top of the cat tree, I’m down in the “pet zone” so I can interact with the other cats and people. Once you begin to pet my body, I’ll stick my bottom in the air and start rubbing against whatever’s nearby – I really do enjoy pets! Who’d have guessed? I look at people now with love, not fear. I’m ready to find my forever home. The folks at FOHA are guessing that I’d do best in a home without a lot of commotion or loud, boisterous activity. I’m not likely to want to be picked up, so I’ll need a family who understands my independence but has time to give me gentle affection. My beautiful, bright amber eyes just reflect the light so beautifully, like a true gem. My spirit’s golden, too, and ready to shine in a loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maggie, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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