Dorothy's Story...
My name is Dorothy and I am a sweet, quiet, elegant cat who is looking for a new home. I saved my own life by having kittens in the shelter and the shelter staff were kind enough to post me for rescue and me and my kittens made it out!! I have raised my amazing brood of 6 but now I am ready for my own home. I still need to put on some weight but am otherwise healthy and looking to move on with my new life. I am friendly and playful. I am not a huge snuggler but I spend most of my current snuggle time with my kittens, so I think I might like a nice lap in time. I get along great with other cats (being fostered with 3) and an very passive with other cats. I am not very fond of dogs. I am tolerating them in my foster home but they still scare me a bit. I would be OK with a quiet, well behaved dog but young crazy dogs make me very nervous. I am a tall, elegant cat with an incredible tail. I also like to beg people food if you happen to be eating on the couch or anywhere I can join you. I love people food and don’t mind just a snack or two! I am up to date on shots, spayed, microchipped and ready for my new life. If interested, please email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dorothy, a Nashville 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 Nashville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Nashville.

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