Toothless (formerly known as Romeo) still needs a furever home. A few months ago, March to be exact, Toothless was left in a carrier at the PetsMart on Westheimer at Eldridge and he was left with a note from, I am assuming, the person who owned him.

He came to us with a badly infected mouth and an entropic eyelid, all of which has been fixed. Toothless will not be an easy kitty to place because he simply HATES other cats. That part of the note left with him was quite true as we have tried since March to integrate him so he does not have to live 24/7 in a room alone. Unfortunately, it has not worked out. Now, he MIGHT be okay with one, maybe two very laid back cats. One day I brought him out of the room, put him down and all was well and good until our little ingrates started circling him. Once he felt trapped, he freaked.

Toothless will need a home where someone is very cat savvy and can read the signs when he has had enough and no longer wants to be petted. However, this does not happen very often. He actually gets mad if you try to get him OFF your lap and then he tends to bite (not hard, mind you, but some people get all bent if a cat is, well, a CAT).

So, there you have it, Toothless needs a home and soon. The vet estimates his age to be anywhere between 4 and 8 years old. He DID test positive for FIV but anyone who has learned about this knows it is not an issue and I can provide PLENTY of research and data to back this up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Toothless, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat 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.
