Duke Ellington's Info...

Duke Ellington's Story...
I am Duke Ellington. Sigh. A while back I almost died.

If not for you, I would have been killed because I was assessed to be a feral cat who was blocked.

As it turns out, I am a really sweet cat who had a kidney infection. Thank you to Tri-City Animal & Bird Clinic​ (particularly Dr. Krista King) for helping me!

Right now I am in a temporary medical foster home. My temp foster mama holds me in her lap. She tells me I am very sweet and docile. She says she wishes she could keep me here, except she has too many already.

Where did I come from? If only I could tell you. I wish I could share my heart with you.

Right now all I want to do is nestle my head into the crook of your elbow while I sit in your lap. If you massage my head and ears, I am in heaven. So far, all I can do is delight in the experience of being loved.

I want to know more love! Can you help?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke Ellington, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

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