Hitch's Story...
Sweet, funny Hitch had a rough start but life is looking up and he is ready for his forever home. Before he came into the FOR family in March, his front right leg was severely injured and had to be amputated. He entered foster care having lost his home and his leg. That was a lot! He is learning to trust again and likes his people a lot but still feels insecure about being with other animal so a home where he is the one and only is best.

Hitch is a love bug and cannot get enough chin scratches and ear rubs and fully body scrubbings as well as belly rubs. He talks (just the right amount), purrs like a well-oiled machine and when he is really happy he will drool –just a little bit. He likes to be close to his person.

He gets around well, uses a scratching post and can jump up to join his person and get those rubs he likes so much. He can play a little roughly at times so young children would not be a good fit.

And he is gorgeous! Solid black, big and shiny, Let him capture your heart.

If you want a big, beautiful cat with a great personality, Hitch is your guy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hitch, a Huntsville 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 Huntsville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Huntsville.

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