Wilbur's Story...
Wilbur who inspired the names for the Charlotte's web group, was born at Pasco County Animal Services. His mom Charlotte was saved from a hoarder. She was brought to the shelter and quickly gave birth to six little ones! Mom had very little human interaction and is semi feral but she is still willing to allow the kind people at the shelter and her foster family help her take care of her little ones. Mom was also asked to take in two newborns who were brought to the shelter (Dora and Diego). They all became part of the St. Francis family on January the 22nd. Wilbur was so tiny I had to confirm with the shelter that he actually was part of the same litter. He was a third of the size of his siblings and had to be fed with a dropper at first because he was too tiny for the bottle. Wilbur is a true panther kitty with short silky jet black fur. With extra feedings from his St. Francis humans and the love of mom and his siblings, Wibur is now the same size as most of his siblings. You can't tell he was the tiny runt who almost didn't make it. Wilbur has been bottle fed along with having mamma Charlotte's great care so he is especially sweet. Like all young kittens, Lurvy is very active and playful. He will be do best with a family who has other fur babies or with one of his siblings. He would make a wonderful addition to any family and is looking forward to finding his forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wilbur, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Tampa.

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