Black Velvet's Story...
My name is Black Velvet. The saying goes, "you've come a long way baby" and you can say that about me. I've come a long way since first arriving here at the shelter. I was adopted once, but unfortunately they had to move and were not longer able to keep me. The folks here have been working with me and I have improved quite a bit but I am still very shy and nervous and take a while to trust and warm up but yummy treats sure do help. I like the company of other cats and once I feel comfortable I can purr and be a love bug. I still have a soft spot for bits of string, crinkled up scraps of paper and fuzzy little things I can bat around. I am a beautiful little fellow looking for someone who understands that it will take time, patience and a lot of positive reinforcement for me to feel part of the family. With my extra shy nature I am considered a Special Needs adoption and I am looking for a house with adults only.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Black Velvet, a Gloucester 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 Gloucester, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gloucester.

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