Wasabi's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.

Wasabi's Story...
My first Foster Mom found me walking down the sidewalk of a Schnucks Shopping Center. Though unafraid, she had to work a bit to catch me – I love games and my freedom! Once I was placed in a cage and given lots of warm blankets to sleep on and plenty of food and water, I started to purr and roll over on my back when the human lady petted and scratched me. She knew right away that I had once been someone's baby.

In my first foster home, other cats didn't seem to like me much. I played very hard and I have trouble keeping my claws to myself, so I had to be kept in my own room, separated from the others, until a cat-free home was found. I haven’t been near other cats since I’ve grown up a bit, so I can’t tell you how I would act now.

While outside, I lost some teeth, developed a nasty sneeze and a UTI. I know the names of all the nurses at the Vet’s office, I have spent so much time there the last eight months, but I’m as healthy as can be now! I still love the great outdoors, and I admit, I am a runner. So I wear a collar and a bell now so my foster’s can hear me trying to sneak out a door or find me in the bushes if I do get to run. I usually come when they call my name though, as I know a home is where I would rather be.

I don't know how long I was outside by myself, but I am very happy to be inside, around people. I run to the door when the doorbell rings to greet anyone new, and I show my appreciation by loving humans and a terrier dog as much as I can by head butting, snuggling, playing, holding paws, sleeping at their feet, and even jumping on their shoulders. I also love to be held like a baby and to have my belly rubbed. I am a little more curious than the average cat and I love to explore new things. So if you have an unexplored corner of a basement, a deep closet, or windows I can guard your house from, I’m your guy!

Did you see my green eyes? That's how I got my name, and foster’s also soon discovered the name fit my personality too. I know that I am a handsome, charismatic young guy, but I also love every human I get the chance to meet these days and long to be the center of attention 24 hours a day. I will carry on a conversation with you when I want something and I love to play. My favorite toy is my long, pink tunnel that makes crinkle noises when I pounce on it, a little stuffed mouse, or a Q-Tip I can carry in my mouth.
I would make a super-sweet companion to anyone who is longing to adopt a full-grown kitty, the bigger and busier the house, the better. I LOVE children and dogs and it is my dream to love and be loved in return forever and ever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wasabi, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

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