Steven's Info...

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

Steven's Story...
Hello! My name is Steven, which suits me, because I’m a proper little boy. I’m a rather handsome bullseye tabby, if I do say so myself. And I do!

I was one of a litter of 5 boys, and I love them very much. However, I’m especially fond of one, Izzy. We’re polar opposites in almost every way: I’m a tabby and he’s a Russian blue mix, he’s soft and I’m silky, he’s built like a linebacker and I’m more like a petite ballet dancer, he fetches and I drag toys around, he likes cuddles and I prefer to quietly lay in laps. But for all our differences, we absolutely love each other and spend most of our days either playing or sleeping together.

Besides Izzy, there are five other things that I love in this world: cat tunnels, tall cat trees, food (of any kind), my fuzzy blanket and water. I can often be found shooting through tunnels, and scaling cat trees. I love to climb, so it’s very important that I have a nice cat tree in my forever home! Throughout the day, especially when I’m sleepy, I go to my favorite blanket and start to knead and nurse on it. I don’t know if I’ll do it forever, but for now, it makes me feel so comfortable and happy! Now, the water thing may seem an odd for a cat, but I love watching it run from faucets, or in the shower, or in the toilet. Unfortunately, our foster mom has started keeping the toilet lid down, because I definitely like to play in there!

I think that Izzy and I will make great companions in a household where cats are given free reign to explore and observe. I think that we'd prefer to be in a home without small children though. Izzy and I don't like a lot of sudden movements or to be picked up when we're not ready.

I am looking for a home that wants two cats: my brother, Izzy and me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Steven, a Richmond Domestic Mediumhair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Mediumhair for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Mediumhair kitten from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Mediumhair breeders who help with Domestic Mediumhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
