Fred's Story...
I’m Fred (as in Flintstone), but I’m no caveman. I’m a happy and handsome, albeit quiet, orange tabby cat. I came from living outside – which is nowhere for a social cat like me to be. I was one of many cats trapped for a Trap-Neuter-Return project, living outside of a restaurant. (Do you like Mexican food? YUM!). But I’m not a feral – I do like people very much and am happy to be indoors where it is safe. At FOHA, I can often be found on a shelf in the cattery, watching and surveying all around me. I enjoy gentle pets, but please approach me slowly. I’m not a wild, rambunctious cat, so I appreciate kind of quiet, demure, reserved people. But I do love toys – cardboard boxes are great. The laser pointer with the red dot rocks! And I enjoy playing Jitterbug on the iPad. If you would like to become fast friends with me, the way to my heart may very well be through my stomach. I thoroughly enjoy treats and yummy food (surprise!). I’m highly motivated by food (chimichanga, por favor?). Finding an adoptive family will be utterly delicious!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fred, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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