Alfie's Story...
About Alfie
Alfie the kitten has been a ball of love since the second we found him. He was found in a friend’s backyard garden. At first the owners thought nothing of it until he kept returning to the house for 3 days meowing and looking for a loving family. We were eventually able to catch him and bring him inside where it was warm and he could finally relax. As soon as I picked him up in the house I knew that he was a special kitten. He was extremely comfortable, purring, laying on his back, rubbing his head against mine, thankful to finally be in a comfortable home. I took him to my home immediately and have loved every minute of being his foster parent ever since.

Alfie is sweet, cuddly, and affectionate with everyone, even when I have had guests in the house. Any kindness that you can give to him he will immediately return the favor. He likes to snuggle on laps and purr while receiving belly and head rubs. He also has a sweet, curious and playful side chasing his toys around the house and curiously watching me as I clean his litter box or make dinner. He is extremely chatty as well and likes to meow as he watches me do tasks around the house.

For a kitten who spent at least 3 days alone in the woods he is extremely well adjusted. He is fully trained to use his litter box, eats regularly, is not skittish, and has begun to recognize his name, especially if he knows it is mealtime or he will be getting a treat.

The ideal family for Alfie is one that wants an indoor cat (he is very afraid of the outdoors now) and wants a cat that loves his family and friends. I anticipate that he would do well with small children as long as they are gentle. I am soon planning to have him meet a couple of dogs to see how he does with them.
For someone who has been a lifelong dog owner and never imagined that I would have a cat in my home I can tell that I am very lucky to have found this little guy. As a medical student it has been a joy of mine to study with him snuggled up on my lap for hours. Don’t miss the chance to meet this fantastic kitten!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alfie, a Winston-Salem 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 Winston-Salem, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Winston-Salem.

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