Bingley's Story...
This handsome little white and gray tabby patched kitten is BINGLEY. He came to us at 6 weeks old in September 2014 after being found by another local rescue. When it was obvious that Bingley had issues with his back legs and some mobility challenges it was apparent that Tenth Life was the place for him.

Bingley’s foster Momma has fostered other cats with mobility issues, however Bingley is unique in that he only has partial paralysis of his rear legs versus full paralysis. Bingley has normal feeling in his rear legs as well as movement. While he can’t walk like a normal cat, he does push his rear legs against the floor in a swimming motion when running about the house. In addition, Bingley is able to use the litter box on his own 100% of the time. While a lower box is easier for him to manage, he crawls into the big boy boxes with the older resident cats.

Bingley is shy when first meeting new people, but whenever he trusts you, it means amazing rewards which include sweet purry cuddles and kneading his paws in contentment. His foster Momma attests that cuddle time with Bingley is some of the best! Bingley is able to scale the cat trees, crawl up onto the couch, dart from room to room, and navigate the carpeted stairs as quickly and easily as a normal kitten. He doesn’t let his unique legs slow him down at all. Bingley loves to play with his foster siblings and resident cats so a home with another kitty friend is essential. He would do best in a mostly carpeted, quiet home without younger children or dogs.

Recently, Bingley saw a neurologist for an MRI just to see if there was anything that could be done to further aid in his mobility and to ensure that there are no foreseen futures changes to his current level of care which requires no special accommodations. While the MRI found that his condition is permanent, his Dr doesn’t expect any decline in his condition in the future. Bingley is ready for the purrfect furever family to fall in love with him. Please consider adopting this sweet little boy TODAY!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bingley, 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.
