Monster's Info...

Monster's Story...
Monster was turned into a local high kill shelter with no explanation of why he was being surrendered. He was stuffed into a small carrier with another adult cat and left outside the shelters doors. The other cat was euthanized before Purrs and Wags could save it. Monster was terrified at the shelter and we saved him just in time. He was on the list for that day when one of our volunteers saw him and saved his life.

Despite his name, Monster has a very loving personality. He loves to be petted and brushed. He is playful and mischievous. He will wait for your toes under the bed and pounce on them (soft paws only, never uses claws). He loves to chase the laser light. He is in a foster home with other cats and a small dog and has no real problems with them. But Monster's ideal home would be one where he is the only male cat. He has an alpha personality. He is FIV/FeLv negative. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. Monster is microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Monster, a Memphis Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Memphis, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Memphis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Memphis 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 Memphis 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 Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Memphis paves the way for another one to be saved.
