Spike's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Spike's Story...
Spiky is a perfect gentleman kitty. He came to us in a December rainstorm, and although,
hungry, cold and wet, did not push and shove with the other cats, but simple waited politely to be noticed and with a gentle head butt and purr, asked if he might join us for dinner. All thru his exam and tests at the vet, he continued to be patient and obliging, greeting everyone with an offer of snuggles and kisses. Turns out, he is one lucky kitty to have come to us. It seems that, although healthy otherwise, he has diabites and would have died if gone untreated. He requires too easy shots a day, which he hardly seems to notice as long as he gets love and food in the bargin.

His beautiful black fur, with smoke undercoat, has been restored to its former glory after a shave and haircut to get rid of of the spiked matts of tree sap that were standing up on his back. (Hence the name “Spikie,” which really should have been “Lover”.) He is about 8 years old and is available for adoption to special home under the Nike Animal Rescue Senior Program. All of his special food and medical care will be provided for his lifetime. Please consider this wonderful, brave kitty as a companion and lap warmer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a San Jose American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in San Jose, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in San Jose.

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