Archie's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.

Archie's Story...
Archie arrived at the shelter with a suitcase packed with attitude. He had lived in a home where his human companions never really socialized him. We're glad he ended up at the shelter, because thanks to the efforts of the volunteers, Archie has a chance at a "complete cat life," one that includes the affections of a human friend. He's come a long way from his early days of swiping and hissing. He now enjoys time out with the volunteers and other cats whenever he can get it, and is a most cooperative boy when we tell him it's time to go in, hopping right in his cage for us. He follows us around, comes to us for petting, enjoys playing with toys, and is a pretty darn happy cat, and now we can lift him up and put him in our laps for some love and affection and kisses on his head!

We do still have to be a little bit careful not to crowd him, which can make him a tiny bit anxious. But Archie is really a happy cat. In the home, he might suffer a small setback adjusting to a new environment, but just give him a little time to adjust, and he'll be devoted to you forever. We are hoping someone experienced in dealing with cats like Archie will come along and give him a home. "Experience" means you just know not to crowd him or corner him, and let him find his own comfort zones. And he LOVES his canned food, so getting him to trust you and bond with you should not take a lot of effort, just some time with him and a can of food.

All the volunteers think he's such a cutie pie and so much fun with his huge personality, but we also know to give him space. He has all the makings of a cat who will devote himself to a human companion, as he has shown a real fondness for the shelter volunteers. Archie gets along well with the other cats, and could be fine with a dog that's used to living with cats, but it's probably best if he does not live with small children who might crowd him.

Archie is 3 years old, box-trained, neutered, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50 (cash or check only, please).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Archie, a Clayville 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 Clayville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Clayville.

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