Kirby's Story...
Kirby came into our local animal control as a stray. He was immediate set up to be euthanized because he tested positive for fiv and heartworms. One of the animal control officers thought he was special and reached out to our rescue. OH MY is he special. He showed us right away just how cool of a kitty he is. Unfortunately Kirby broke his toe within the few weeks of coming into foster and is still limping a little. He has had quite a bid of vet work, due to the broken toe and heartworm status. He has had a full body x-ray and blood work so we can know his overall health. Heartworms in kitties can not be treated. Kitties get about 2-3 worms, unlike dogs who can get over 60 worms. The worm lives 2-3 years and 75% of kitties can survive the heartworm infestation. So we wanted to get Kirby's immune system as strong as possible to be able to fight off his heartworm infection. Well, not only did his last bloodwork show is heartworm NEGATIVE, but it also showed he is FIV this means that Kirby has either fought off both (to fight off fiv is extremely rare) or his initial positive fiv/heartworm results were a false positive. Man, this kitty almost lost his life on a false positive test (not uncommon)

Kirby loves all the kitties in his foster home (four) He is always trying to get them to play with him. He is very young and has kitten energy at times. He loves to sleep with his human. Kirby would love to have a family who has a lot of time to spend with him. He is so greatful to have food and love that he follows his humans around the house. When they are gone, he has been known to go looking for attention from the neighbors. He is just a fun kitty. His adoption fee is $50 and he is neutered, indoor/outdoor shots, and microchipped

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kirby, a Charlotte 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 Charlotte, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Charlotte.

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