SKIPPY, and is mostly black. He does have what we call a bikini, which means a little white between the hind legs. Skippy was born March 2009 an got overlooked because he is a very shy kitty.

A little history on black cats.

A popular belief in the western hemisphere holds that black cats are unlucky. This superstition is not universally held, however. In Asia and the U.K., a black cat is generally considered lucky. The exception, is that in most of the U.K., it is unlucky to cross paths with a black cat. As there are exceptions to every rule, including exceptions to exceptions. In Yorkshire, England, it may be lucky to own a black cat, but it is unlucky have one cross your path. (I wonder how one handles the latter if she lives with black cats.) Superstitions, like genetics, can be a very confusing subject, indeed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, a Huntsville 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 Huntsville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Huntsville.

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