Betsy's Story...
Betsy, 1 1/2 Year Old, Spayed Female, Beige Blind Cat

In despite of being blind; Betsy is a strong, brave, 1 1/2 year old, beige feline who survived living on the streets of Waterbury, since December of 2015. Last week, this survivor was examined by Dr. Saria, became up to date on all of her vaccinations, and has been tested negative for HIV & Leukemia. Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 06, 2016; Betsy will be spayed. Possibly, Betsy sees a shadow, however, she is blind in both eyes. A kind soul who has been feeding her on the streets of Waterbury; has finally been able to befriend Betsy enough to pick her up to safety. This companion displays her love and appreciation, as she is so grateful to feel safe by cuddling up against you. Betsy is delighted to be indoors and cared for, as she loves to quickly “meow” to you when you talk to her. This feline is highly intelligent and alert, as she navigates around the room and follow scents to food, and her beds. Isn’t Betsy beautiful? Have you noticed her polydactyl (double toes)? This courageous beige cat, has a glowing personality, and even gets along with other cats. Because of her visual impairment we request no dogs in Betsy’s family. She is a remarkable, and really will make someone or a special family a wonderful cat. Would you like to meet Besty, a very healthy, friendly and affectionate cat? Betsy will be available for adoption on Sunday, April 10, 2016 between 12 NOON -3PM, located at PETSMART on 475 Bank Street in Waterbury, CT, 06708. Her adoption donation fee is $175.

Betsy is FELV/FIV(-), and has had her rabies, & distemper vaccinations. Since, Betsy had her check-up with the veterinarian, she is up to date on all her vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Betsy, a Waterbury 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 Waterbury, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Waterbury.

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