Charmin's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Charmin's Story...
Charmin came to DHA as a kitten, with a few of her siblings. When she wasn't gaining weight like the others and her temperature fell too low, she was rushed to the nearest emergency hospital. After a few days of monitoring and various tests, she was diagnosed with Addison's disease - which is incredibly rare in cats, let alone a kitten. Her body does not understand how to process stressful situations, so she requires a small dose of medication daily to keep her in check. As long as she has yearly blood work done along with a check-up and can be monitored for symptoms of an Addisonian crisis, she can and has been living a perfectly normal life!

Once her medication was stabilized, she was placed into foster care in September 2015 where she could receive proper exercise and be monitored by a consistent caretaker. She adjusted in no time at all, has fallen madly in love with her doggie "siblings," become cuddle buddies with her feline "sister," and entertains visiting children. She adores everyone, loves to play, will tolerate nail trimming/brushing/tooth brushing, knows to sit before her food bowl gets put down, and is likely to steal little morsels of chicken or a lick of your whipped cream if you let her! If you're someone who might be willing to learn about her condition and potentially meet her, please contact DHA or her foster mom directly at sgomez@dehumane.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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