Mia's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mia's Story...
Hey guys! My name is Mia. I had a rough start to life. You see, I was abandoned in the wild outdoors. I didn't really know how to fend for myself, and I was freezing, so I climbed up under the hood of a car and curled up on an engine to keep warm. I wish I had known what a terrible idea that was. My tail got caught in the engine, and it was severely injured before I was able to get free. Luckily, some wonderful volunteers rescued me and rushed me to the vet, so I could be treated. They had to amputate part of my tail, but I'll be ok now.

I got to recover in an awesome foster home. It was my very first indoor home, and I can't even begin to explain how great it has been. I get to be warm all the time. I get food whenever I want it, without having to search for it on my own. And the best part - I get all the pets, belly rubs and snuggles I want! I can't wait to find a forever home, especially now that I know how great they can be!

I may look a little different than the other kitties now, but I'm still an awesome girl, and I think I would make a great addition to any family. Do you have room in your home and your heart for a sweet girl like me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mia, a Richmond Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Richmond.

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