Goose's Story...
Meet our little Goose! This brave, affectionate girl was fending for herself on the city streets in the most bitter cold of the season when a concerned resident spotted her dragging a limp front leg and made a call. Once we got her some much-needed vet care, it was discovered that she has radial paralysis in that limb (caused by nerve damage). We can’t imagine how tough it was for little Goose to find food and keep herself relatively safe out there on her own. Even though the leg has a nasty wound and it’s a challenge for her to move around with that paralyzed leg, she’s a total trooper and uses the litter box like a pro!

Even more important, this rough start hasn’t dampened her spirit one bit. She’s just as sweet, loving, and cuddly as can be! She starts purring as soon as her foster mom comes in the room. And if the petting doesn’t start soon enough to suit her, she will announce her needs with the softest sweet little meow. She loves being scratched all over (full-body massage, please!). Her other favorite thing is lying on your lap or chest while you gently rub her ears or under her chin. Perhaps best of all, she will gaze back into your eyes with a love that seems to say how grateful she is to be safe and warm and have a full tummy.

Goose has some more challenges coming up, but this time, she’s not facing them alone. Because of the location of the paralysis in her limb, she will need to have that leg (or at least the lower portion) amputated. But rather than slow her down, we are sure that this will only increase her mobility, making it so much easier for her to run and play like any other kitty. She will need a few weeks of recovery with her foster family after her surgery, but once she has healed, she will be seeking a loving family to call her own. Please consider bringing little Goose home forever! Whoever adopts this sweetie will certainly be a lucky goose. ☺ Sorry, we couldn’t resist.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Goose, 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.
