Starkey's Info...

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

Starkey's Story...
Meet Starkey! This handsome gentleman is around 5-years-old and came to DHA almost TWO YEARS AGO! He was sadly mistreated previously and had to recover from burns to his fur and skin. We don't know how this could have happened, but his wounds have since healed. He is now a big, quiet guy living his life in one of our cat rooms. He is often referred to as Papa Stark as he is wonderful with kittens! He is still a bit wary of new people, but can be convinced to come close if tempted with his favorite catnip. If he's feeling up to it, he will even chase wand toys for however long you will play with him! We are hoping someone will give Starkey a loving home where he can feel safe and loved again. Please come and meet him and once you look into his beautiful, soulful green eyes you may not be able to look or walk away. A home of his own for Christmas is our goal!

PS. Bring or ask for catnip when you come and he'll be all yours in no time!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Starkey, a Wilmington 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 Wilmington, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Wilmington.

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