Shashimi's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Shashimi's Story...
They call me Shashimi! I was originally rescued by the MSPCA from a hoarding situation. There were lots of us cats and all of us feeling very shy and under-socialized so several different rescue groups and shelters worked together to find us all spots to go where we could get the extra care we would need. I and 3 of my feline family (Pudding, Fish and Bernie) were able to come here! As you can imagine when we first arrived we were all feeling pretty shy and overwhelmed. I took a little while to get comfortable but with lots of patience, coaxing and yummy treats I started to trust the people here and came out of my shell. I am considered a Special Needs adoption because I have a head tremor. This tremor has been present since I arrived and has not changed at all in the month I have been here. I eat, sleep, play and socialize just like the other kitties only I do it with a bit of a wobble. My veterinarian can't say for sure what is causing my head tremor without doing all sorts of special and really expensive testing but because the tremor hasn't changed and doesn't affect my quality of life he said I can get a chance to find a family to call my own and consider myself a Special Needs adoption candidate! I'm a quiet fellow who likes to enjoy the finer things in life like sunny windowsills, climbing up a cat tower, playing with toys and getting attention from my people. I am looking for a family willing to take home a Special Needs animal and with my shyer nature I am looking for a home with older children or adults. I had a rough start in life and I am looking forward to a bright future with you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shashimi, a Gloucester 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 Gloucester, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gloucester.

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