Crackers's Story...
My name may be Crackers, but my favorite food is chicken! I also like peanut butter crackers, but really, if you are what you eat, my name should be Chicken. It would have been appropriate, too, when I first arrived at FOHA to call me “Chicken” because I was sure scared of people. I was left in a carrier in the driveway at the FOHA shelter, and I wasn’t happy about that. I was very scared and would hiss to try to keep people away from me. But the FOHA volunteers were adamant about interacting with me. They would sit quietly and talk to me sweetly. They would bring me chicken and urge me to eat it out of their hands – how could I not oblige! Now I’ve moved from the FOHA cattery to a foster home, where I quickly settled in with the other kitties. I coo and squeak at the other felines to get their attention to let them know I want to play. My favorite playmate in my foster home is a FOHA-adopted orange tabby who looks a lot like me. I decided when I met him that we would be best friends, and I tend to follow him around, getting him to wrestle and play with me. I’d definitely do best in a home with other friendly cats. I’ve met the family German Shepherd, and while I was nervous, I figure that dog is ok. I don’t like to play with the dog, but I do like to play with Da Bird – no, that’s not a real bird, it’s a toy! I jump around to catch it, and it’s tons of fun. After playing, I love to spend time with my foster mommy. It’s hard to believe that I’ve gone from hissy cat to lap cat! I will curl up to take a nap in my foster mom’s lap. When I wake up in her lap, I may start grooming myself and her legs at the same time. She LOVES to shower me with kisses, and I let her carry me around on her shoulder, purring all the way. I love pets to my head, neck, ears, and shoulders – and you’ll know I love it from my purrs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Crackers, 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.
