Pepper's Story...
Hi my name is Pepper! I've lived a tough life so far but I'm ready for my happy ending! I was found behind a hotel extremely pregnant with horribly infected ears, emaciated, and a bump on my lip. That next morning I gave birth to 6 babies who have since already found homes. My foster mom worked very hard to get me healthy but for some reason the bump on my lip never went away. The vet took a sample and saw there were round cells which meant I had a tumor. So the following week I had my tumor removed and it turns out it was cancer! This type of cancer usually also affects the lungs but the X-rays of my lungs are clear. So right now I am cancer free! But I need to have my lungs xrayed every 6 months for the first two years to be sure the cancer stays gone, then once a year after that. My adopter also would need to make sure the tumor doesn't come back on my face either. I really hope someone will still consider loving me and making me part of their family. I'm very sweet and love nothing more than to curl up next to you and purr away while you pet me. I'm also still playful! I love a good catnip toy and will play with it for hours. I hope to meet you soon! Love, Pepper

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pepper, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat 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.
