Rupert's Story...
Looking for unconditional love? You're at the right place!

My name is Rupert, and I am an energetic bundle of cuteness! My foster parents think that I was born in the spring of 2014, but I don't know how to tell them for sure. Unfortunately, I was abandoned on the streets of Houston, but was rescued by my foster parents whom I quickly won over with my charm and lovable nature. I LOVE playing with people, toys (especially mice toys!) and other cats! I especially love being pet while I'm eating; I get so relaxed that I sprawl on the floor while your petting me!

Currently, I am learning to play gently with other cats (my first new friend is my foster brother El Roi, also known as Imp, a Friends for Life alum!) and not bite too hard while playing with my foster parents (I am really starting to like my kickeroo pillow!!). I've made a lot of progress in just a few weeks! New environments are not an issue for me as long as there are toys and food, I am in heaven within minutes. I am incredibly interested in my environment and love to follow my foster parents around the house and see what they are doing. I will be your best friend for life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rupert, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Houston.

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