Maxine's Story...
Hi, I'm Maxine, and I play fetch!! (watch my video!) I'm hoping the 3rd time is the charm for me. I was adopted as a kitten, and had an amazing family but they recently were just evicted from their home and I was sooo sad I couldn't go with them -- they were devastated too! Then I went to Petsmart to find my new home, and I thought I did for 2 whole weeks! But they returned me because they discovered they were allergic to me and wanted to do some traveling. :( Now I'm desperately longing for a warm friendly lap to cuddle up in, someone I can run to when they call my name -- my foster mom can tell you how amazing I am. I am so incredibly loving -- I'll let you rub my belly all day long if you'd like. But I also am incredibly playful -- strings and fuzzy craft pipe cleaners twisted are my favorites. I like to play hide & seek, but don't worry -- I'll always come find you!! I'm a typical cat who's not fond of being carried around for long -- that's because I prefer to be following you, or cudding up beside (or on) you! I would prefer to be in my own home without other cats/dogs, as I was attacked by my last owner's cat, and I am afraid that I will get hurt again. I can't wait to show you how much love I have!!! Just please give me a chance!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxine, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Tampa.

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