Lizzy's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Lizzy's Story...
Lizzy was rescued from a neglect situation where she was not receiving the
medical care that she needed. When we first met Lizzy, she had no fur on her
head or neck, and was missing all of her whiskers. She had lots of scabs
from scratching at herself. With medical care and proper nutrition, Lizzy's
fur has grown back very soft, and she now has lovely white whiskers. In her
pictures, you don't see the little white mittens on all of her feet that
match them.

Lizzy is a smart and athletic kitty. In foster care, she has discovered
toys--and catnip! She plays in spurts, then likes to curl up in her cage,
puppy style, for an afternoon nap. Lizzy loves to snuggle close to her
foster mom, either sleeping at her feet during the day or curling up with
her in bed at night. She is very talkative, especially at mealtime, telling
her foster mom exactly what she wants. Lizzy wants to be your one and only
kitty, but we think she might enjoy having a dog around.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lizzy, a Gainesville 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 Gainesville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gainesville.

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