Dickens's Story...
"You little Dickens!"

Dickens is a one year old grey tabby kitten with a lot of spice and energy! He loves to play and he can make a toy out of just about anything. He loves to swipe paws at hanging toys and to chase moving toys across the floor for as long as you'll play with him. We love to take him to community outreach events because he plays with children and visitors for hours at a time.

He's still learning to be a kitten, so sometimes he has a little trouble with claw retraction, but he's polite as can be when it comes to furniture and swiping.

Dickens is a heather grey kitten with tabby stripes, bright green eyes, a dark nose, and long, white whiskers. You couldn't ask for a more handsome combination!

His adoption fee is $90. He's been neutered and is up to date on shots. We're even working on leash training! Please consider making Dickens a part of your home, there will never be a dull moment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dickens, a Marion 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 Marion, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Marion.

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