Odessa's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.

Odessa's Story...
My name is Odessa and I was trapped from a feral cat colony in Harlem in April 2016. In the colony I tried to “do as the Romans did” and flexed my fierce-muscles as much as I could, so when I was trapped everybody pretty much bought my gangstress act- no problem! But as time indoors went on I started to relax and remember a life gone by, a life of love and safety and laps, head-scrunches and not to mention, elevator-butt.

Literally overnight I re-bloomed and my old life came out one day. The real me had arrived. No one knows my journey to the streets, which must remain a mystery- but now, I just can’t get or give enough love. Though I am timid I am super-sweet, and could spend the whole live-long day rolling over and purring on your lap.

If you want a loving, affectionate cat around, we would make a great pair!

I am about 1 year old, spayed, tested negative for fiv/fLv, vaccinated, and microchipped. And I am ready for the next chapter…

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Odessa, a New York 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 New York, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in New York.

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