Pollyanna's Story...
Pollyanna is a survivor. She was found bloodied, scraped up, and laying inside a cardboard box outside a store after being hit by a car. Her right rear leg had been broken, so she was taken to Animal Services where she was placed on the Euthanasia list. For the second time in as many days, her life was in imminent danger. Even if someone stepped up to save her, the shelter was planning to amputate her leg. Thankfully, St. Francis saved Pollyanna from euthanasia and decided to try and save her leg, too! But it would turn out to be a long and challenging process. After months of stressful vet visits, splint changes, a leg infection, and being confined to cage rest, it was recommended that Pollyanna's leg be amputated because it was just not healing. It was heartbreaking to think of her losing her leg after all she'd been through. Determined to save her leg, a specialist was consulted who prescribed bone supplements to aid healing and said fractures like this can take time. Three weeks later, everyone was amazed at her progress - her leg was healing! After nearly three months, Pollyanna finally got to use her leg without a splint. She could walk, chase her toys, and climb on her foster daddy. She had to stay on cage rest for a few more weeks when not supervised, but finally the day came when she was free. No more cast, no more cone, and no more cage! She was free to run, jump, and play alongside the other cats she could previously only see and cry out to. Pollyanna was a true miracle kitty, but the most amazing part was that through it all, she always purred for her foster daddy. She didn't let the experience break her. Instead, she has become a strong, confident cat who loves to play - a lot! She is very energetic. When play time is over, she enjoys sitting on her window perch or laying next to her foster daddy as they watch TV. She is good with most other cats and with a large, playful dog. She has been through so much and deserves a home as special as she is.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pollyanna, 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.
