Skylar's Story...
Meet Skylar
Skylar is a handsome big gentle bear of a kitty. We think he was born about 2013 or 2012. He is part of the group of cats that Bedford Humane Society worked with other local rescues on removing from a very crowded household & we think he is father to many of the younger cats that have his same handsome brown mackeral tabby markings, although he is especially handsome with his big head. Something about his chin makes him look very wise. Once he trusts you & shows you his playful side, you realize he is also a little bit of a jokester. Skylar is like the rest of this group—he has had to learn so many basic things, like to trust people, to feel safe by himself, to use a litterbox, to play with toys. He still will hide when he is unsure, but he has come so far. Skylar will need someone who can be patient & work with him as he settles into a new home with more new experiences. He would do best in a quiet, calm setting. He is great with other cats, even many other cats, but is frightened by dogs or small children. Skylar is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, & tested for FeLV & FIV. To hear more about Skylar, call 540/586-6100 or go to to complete an Adoption Application & we can set up a meeting for you so you can see this handsome boy for yourself.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skylar, a Bedford 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 Bedford, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Bedford.

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