DUCHESS's Info...

DUCHESS's Story...
DUCHESS was born approximately June 8, 2013. This petite girl survived two winters outside by befriending humans at their back doors, and decided early on that the outdoors life is just not for her. She worked hard to get herself brought in by a nice lady who fed her through the winter, but does not have room at the inn since she is already at the pet limit in her complex. DUCHESS has amazed us with how affectionate and friendly she is considering she was born outside. It takes her a little while to get used to new things, but once adjusted, she will sit in your lap, allow you to trim her nails, and she loves to play with teaser toys! She is one of those cats who truly appreciates being given a second chance and will make a great companion. She has never had the opportunity to be inside a home yet, as she was brought directly to our facility, but she has adjusted quickly to our cottage environment. Since this is all new to her, she will need an adjustment period into a new home, which our volunteers will be happy to go over. She is a gentle girl, and once she feels safe in her environment, she enjoys the company of both humans and other animals. DUCHESS would love a warm bed of her own, and a family to bond with. DUCHESS is healthy, already spayed, up to date on all shots, and litter box trained.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DUCHESS, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Hamilton.

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