Dixie's Story...

Dixie and The Breakfast Club:  On May, 1st, around the day this litter was born--their umbilical cords still attached--someone took the mom, Dixie, and her babies, and taped them inside a cardboard box, and then threw them in a dumpster behind the Mars supermarket in Cockeysville, Maryland. That afternoon was a freak thunderstorm, and it rained so hard the streets were flooded. The box washed out of the dumpster and into the road--and a Lucky Cat Rescue volunteer almost ran over it! But she investigated, and inside were Dixie and her three boys--Latkes, Waffles and Pancakes. The volunteer took them in and gave them a safe place to stay. The next day, another volunteer brought over Bacon and Eggs--two newborn females who were abandoned by their mother in the rain the day before. Knowing that babies have a better survival rate when they have a mother's milk, we thought to see if Dixie would nurse them--and she did. She took in the girls and has cared for them as if they were her own; she's been a truly excellent mother and has made great strides in overcoming her fear of humans. Now she's a love-bug who enjoys being petted and is getting used to being held. She plays through the door with other cats in her foster home, but thus far has been kept in a room with only her litter. Her adopter will need to be an experienced cat owner who knows how to read cat body language and is willing to give her a few weeks in her new home to learn to trust and get used to any other friendly cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Balto 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 Balto, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Balto.

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