Payton's Story...
Black is Back! I am an adorable fluffy black fuzzball! I was found as a newborn abandoned with my four brothers and sisters near Boyette Animal Hospital. A kind vet tech who works there took us all in, cleaned us up, and called St. Francis to help us live and find homes. Our foster mama fed us for a few days and then she found a nursing mama that took us into her litter. My foster mommy was worried because I had a bad eye infection, but I survived and I have sight in both of my eyes!! I need a feline playmate and I would love it if it was one of my brothers or sister. I like toys, but my favorite toy is my mommy's tail. I can climb really fast and far, but have some trouble figuring out how to get down. Don't worry, though, I'll let you know if I need help. I was one of the last ones to finish nursing and am very bonded to my siblings. I'm perfectly happy to follow Pierce on adventures or curl up with Phoenix or Paisley, but I don't usually lead the charge unless we're climbing. My foster mommy has decided that I must be reincarnated from Sir Edmund Hillary or a Sherpa climber from Mt. Everest. I definitely have no fear of heights. Can I climb my way into your heart?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Payton, 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.
