Joy's Story...
Meet Joy (pictured first) and Monkey Business, two lovely long haired black beauties who met and became instant pals. Both are very playful and Monkey Business is into everything (thus his name!). They are excellent litter-box users and they’ve actually learned to give high-fives and are super loving kitties. They’d clearly love to stick together….

When it comes to games, Monkey and Joy LOVE DaBird (a toy found at almost every pet store) and any birdie or mouse toys. Joy especially loves to snuggle and will come and curl up inside of a blanket right next to you. She may retreat if you reach for her (she’s still a bit shy), but if you have treats or toys, or you are sitting quietly reading or watching a movie, she will come and snuggle you right up! Monkey Business is very affectionate and loving and can also get a smidge overstimulated and playful and want to play with you like you are a kitty, so it’s best to encourage play with DaBird instead of your hand. ;)

These cuties love kibble, freeze dried chicken, and cut chunks of roast chicken meat (without the spices). Monkey Business has a tiny meow, very cute for such a big boy and Joy hardly talks but also has a tiny meow when she’s hungry. These two will thrive in a playful and warm and snuggly environment; they also love their current outdoor enclosure so if you have a secure deck or yard, these sweeties will be in heaven.

To meet Monkey Business and Joy, please call Debbie, Jake's Place Adoption Manager at 415-548-0824 or visit

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joy, a Novato 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 Novato, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Novato.

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