Hazel's Story...
Harrison and Hazel are a stunning young couple who came from different places in life, met cute, and fell in like. They are looking for a home where they can stay together for the rest of their long and happy lives.

Harrison is a big, handsome lug of guy, who instantly loves everyone he meets. Typical of orange boys, Harrison is mellow, easy-going, and although he enjoys toys and play time, his biggest joy in life is to curl up on the couch, using the closest human body as a pillow. When Harrison rolls over and invites a belly rub, he is very sincere; he wouldn’t dream of being rude about it. Harrison may not be the brightest bulb in the box, but he is sweet, loyal, and he adores Hazel. And really, could he be any more gorgeous?

Hazel is a whip-smart girl who loves meeting challenges. Present her with a latched door, sealed box, or cup of tea on the end table, and Hazel will start her investigation immediately and keep at it until a resolution has been reached to her satisfaction. Her beautiful markings are what we call “torbie”: a tortoiseshell/orange tabby/brown tabby mix.

Hazel wasn’t sure at first that she was going to allow Harrison to share her personal space, but he didn’t recognize her gestures of rejection. He just put his big orange guy charm to work until he won her over. The whole process took about three days. Now they enjoy sharing a stimulating game of track ball (well, stimulating for Hazel—Harrison mostly just lolls about watching her burn up calories). Other favorite activities: playing tag, wrestling, chasing the laser dot, cleaning each other’s ears, and chattering at the squirrels that race up and down the cherry tree in front of their window.

Harrison was born in March 2014, so he’s not yet a year old, although he looks it. He is going to be quite a large cat when he’s done growing. Hazel is a month or so younger than Harrison, but she is quite dainty and probably will always keep her girlish figure.

Harrison and Hazel have been neutered/spayed, microchipped, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and are up-to-date on vaccines. The adoption fee is $150 for both.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hazel, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Portland.

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