Emma's Story...
Hi, my name is Emma. I started out my life in what I thought would be my forever home. But one day, the unthinkable happened. I was abandoned by my owners and left on the street to fend for myself. When I was finally rescued, I had so many fleas that I had sores and had lost patches of hair from licking and scratching. I wasn't good at finding my own food, so I lost a lot of weight. But the kind people who rescued me gave me lots of love (and food) and nursed me back to health. Now look how beautiful I am!

I am a very outgoing and happy kitty. I love to be petted and showered with kisses. One of my favorite things is to curl up in my foster mom's lap or on her chest for some snuggles and a good head scratch. I am quite talkative, and if you call my name, I will respond with a little meow. I am kind of fascinated by the water that comes out of faucets. I think the water straight from the faucet tastes better. So, when I need a refreshing sip, I get up on the bathroom counter and meow for it to be turned on.

Even though I'm technically an adult now, I'm still a kitten at heart. I have lots of energy, and I love to play. Some of my favorite toys are wand toys, mice and crinkle balls - I'm a pretty good at catching, if you toss a ball to me. But, I love playing so much that I can make a toy out of anything, even empty boxes and paper bags! I love playing and other kitties so much, that it would be really great if I had a kitty friend in my forever home for me to play with.

I have so much love to give. Is there room in your home and heart for a beautiful girl like me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emma, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Richmond.

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