Haru's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Haru's Story...
Orange tabby cats are usually male, but Haru is an extra special ginger girl with the classic friendly, "let's be pals!" personality that one would expect from an orange tabby. She scores straight A's in affection, play time and litter box manners.

Orange tabby cats are usually male, but Haru is an extra special ginger girl with the classic friendly, "let's be pals!" personality that one would expect from an orange tabby. She scores straight A's in affection, play time and litter box manners.

Haru was found wandering in an apartment complex. She followed people on their way to the swimming pool, occasionally finding something to eat. She was mostly ignored, except by one family, who named her Haru after a character from a Japanese fantasy movie "The Cat Returns." There, a little girl named Haru helps a cat.

The family noticed that Haru started looking thin and weak - and it was clear she needed medical help. Turns out, she was malnourished and had worms. At Friends For Life she received medical care and proper nutrition. Months later, she's healthy, playful and ready to find her happily-ever-after home. She now even has an Instagram page so you can see how adorable she is!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Haru, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Houston.

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