Tony's Story...

Tony was originally rescued out in Denver and moved here with his family, only to be informed that he must now find a new home. He is a super friendly cat who will greet everyone who walks in the door with purrs and offers to snuggle. This expressive tabby is a lap cat, and loves to help you when you work on the computer. He is a playful boy, both with his sister and with people, and likes to chat about the world around him (based on the shape of his face and voice, we strongly suspect he's got some Siamese in his background). He is very gentle and patient with young children - he's been chased around and had his tail grabbed, and not once has he ever hissed or lashed out with claws (although he may look for a nearby adult and request rescue). Tony would very much like to be the first thing you see in the morning when you wake up to find him curled at your feet, sleeping comfortably; as well as the last thing you see at night - also curled at your feet, sleeping comfortably. Tony is fine as a solo cat, or as a pair with his sister Cleo.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tony, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Alexandria.

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