Bandit's Story...

When a family of five (five cats, that is, in addition to the humans) learned that their elderly neighbor was going to a nursing home, they willingly opened their hearts and homes to his cherished cat Bandit. They knew that the affectionate boy was grieving for his recently lost playmate - in addition to losing his person, he'd lost his sister and constant companion just a few months earlier. The family hoped that one of their cats would take a shine to Bandit and help fill the hole in his heart, but alas, none of the cats are willing to play with him. So this sweet, friendly boy instead cuddles with a stuffed animal that contains a heartbeat simulator, and he absolutely adores it. When not snuggling with his toy, Bandit has proven to be the perfect house guest. He loves people and other cats, he has excellent manners, and learns quickly. Bandit is a playful, caring boy who needs a home with another cat, and with people who are willing to dote on him as much as he will dote on them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bandit, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Alexandria.

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