Ares's Info...

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

Ares's Story...
My name is Ares, but I'm not the Greek god of war. No sir, I'm a handsome, very sweet, affectionate Classic orange-tabby-with-white DSH who was born in late March 2016. Classic tabby means that my tabby markings are in marble swirls instead of mackerel stripes -- so I'm unique and unusual! And how many ginger tabby fellas have you seen with 4 white mittens, a white muzzle, white bib, and white tummy?
Am I cute, or what? My foster mom nicknamed me Grandpa because I can have a grouchy expression on my face, but, no worries, my heart is as loveable as they come. In fact, my foster mom says, in short, that I am "an awesome, awesome kitty" who is just full-to-the-brim with personality. She says that I'm the complete package -- good looks, frisky, and yet a cuddle bug.
This is my modus operandi: first I love to play with my siblings as well as my favorite balls with bells and catnip mice; then when I'm exhausted from playing, I seek out a human lap to snuggle up in in order to nap. Cuddling with my humans is one of my favorite pastimes. And my foster family loves to hold me like a baby, and I relish it. I like to be squished up against you so I can hear your heart beat. I'm one of those rare kittens who seeks out human companionship from adults as well as kids (even though there are plenty of 4-legged critters, dogs as well as cats, here in my foster home with whom I can play).
However, in the beginning, I am on the shy side with people until I warm up to them. Just give me a short amount of time, and I won't disappoint you that I'm a typical friendly marmalade tabby.
My siblings and I were born in an abandoned house, and I was orphaned when my mom was killed by a car. A nice lady heard our cries because we were so hungry. She fed us, and my foster mom offered to take us in.
As much as I love playing with all the 2- and 4-legged animals of all ages in my foster home, I am ready for my forever home! Won't you be my lifetime best friend and give me a home of my very own? I promise to snuggle in your lap and be your baby to hold!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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