hugh's Story...
Meet Hugh- a handsome gent who is just a little rough around the edges, but has a smooth heart of gold!

Hugh counts himself as our newest kitty resident here at MHS, having made his way here as a stray. This 2 year old fella may look a little scraped right now, but once we saturate him in our special blend of MHS tlc, Hugh will regain his 'purr'fectly distinguished appearance. Already though, Hugh has shown that he has a heart of 24karat gold. His purr motor runs instantly whenever someone walks in the room, and he just adores being pet like no other. Hugh would easily make a 'purr'fect snuggle buddy for a home in need of some feline companionship.

Get to know Hugh today!

**Update** Super adoptable Hugh gave us a surprise recently, when during our routine FeLV/FIV testing, he showed positive for FIV.

What does this mean for potential adopters? First, FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Likened to 'feline AIDS', it is important to note that it is *not* transmittable to:

-people
-dogs

Simply, FIV is a cat to cat disease. It is typically spread to other cats through bites.

Cats with FIV can live a long normal lifespan just like their non-infected counterparts. However, FIV weakens a cat's immune system, making it more difficult to fend of secondary illnesses that may pop up. Staying on top of routine vet care is important, to allow your pet's doctor a better ability to observe changes in their health, and respond accordingly. Also, making sure that he is strictly kept indoors and is given a good quality diet will be helpful tools in managing Hugh's FIV status.

Don't let 3 letters scare you from Hugh- get to know him today!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

hugh, a Muskegon 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 Muskegon, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Muskegon.

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