Caliope's Story...
COURTESY POST


CALIOPE HAD A WARM HOUSE, PLENTY OF LOVE AND A LAP TO CUDDLE UP ON UNTIL ONE DAY HER DEVOTED OWNER LEFT AND NEVER RETURNED. THEN THE WARM HOUSE BECAME COLD AND DARK AND THE ONLY TIME SHE SAW ANYONE WAS WHEN THEY BROUGHT FOOD TO HER. THEN ONE NIGHT THE PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT THE FOOD PUSHED HER OUT OF THE HOUSE AND CLOSED THE DOOR. THE FERALS LIVING OUTSIDE DID NOT ACCEPT HER AND CHASED HER AWAY FROM THE FOOD.
CALIOPE WOULD COWER IN THE BUSHES AWAY FROM THE OTHERS. SHE WAS NOT FERAL AND DIDN'T KNOW THE WAYS OF LIVING ON THE STREETS. FRIGHTENED, SHE JUST KEPT AWAY FROM THEM LONELY AND ABANDONED. A GOOD SAMARITAN STARTED TAKING FOOD TO THE FERALS, SHE NOTICED THAT CALIOPE WAS NOT LIKE THE OTHER CATS, SHE WANTED LOVE AND WOULD FOLLOW HER TO HER CAR, SHE WANTED LOVE MORE THAN THE FOOD SHE WAS BRINGING TO HER! SEEMS THAT THE OWNER HAD TO GO TO A NURSING HOME AND THE POWER WAS TURNED OFF IN THE HOUSE. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE TO CARE FOR HER DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE AN INDOOR CAT AND PUT HER OUTSIDE TO FEND FOR HERSELF. CALIOPE IS A LONG HAIRED CALICO, 1.5 YEARS OLD, FULLY VETTED, LOVES PEOPLE AND HAS BEEN COMBO TESTED. CALL 704-500-4166 FOR MORE INFO AND A MEETING. SHE IS IN FOSTER CARE.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Caliope, a Statesville Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Statesville, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Statesville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Statesville 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 Statesville 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 Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Statesville paves the way for another one to be saved.
