Tortellini's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Tortellini's Story...
I'm a very shy little lassie with a cute name -- Tortellini. I'm a dilute tortie -- instead of dark black and orange like most torties, I'm hushed grey and tan. I used to be quite the hissy kitten -- I didn't like people at all! I mean, I wasn't used to nice folks. No, I was left in the carrier in the driveway of the FOHA shelter, so obviously I had minimal interaction with nice people. In fact, the folks at FOHA assumed I would grow up to be a feral feline and would be released into their feral cat colony. When I went to be spayed, they even tipped my ear -- that's where they snip the end of a kitty's ear so that a person can quickly tell if a cat has already been spayed or neutered. That saves rescuers from taking feral cats into the vet to be spayed only to find out that they've already had that operation! So that's why my one ear looks kind of strange. But after my spay operation, I slowly started to calm down around people. The volunteers at FOHA worked at approaching me quietly and ignoring my hisses. Once I was in their arms, I would settle down and even like to receive pets. I've been known to get so relaxed in a comfy lap that I start kneading, or making biscuits as they like to call it! I'm a regular feline after all! Now, I still have a ways to go in learning all about feline domesticity, but I'm well on my way and I obviously have it in me to be a good kitty pet. I just need a kind and caring adopter who will work with me to continue to learn to trust.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tortellini, 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.
