Rusty's Story...
Rusty will be shy at first, but give him a few days or so and he will make a great companion for those lucky to adopt him. He is extremely social once he becomes accustomed to his surroundings and loves to be given belly rubs! Rusty does not bite, hiss or have any aggression towards us and behaves very well. He uses his litter box without any issues and has a great appetite for food. Rusty can be found looking out on the window sill when he is not cuddling on the couch with us, but loves to play with toys once in a while! Due to his timid nature, Rusty would prefer a home with no other dogs or cats. He currently lives with a caged hedgehog however, and does not seem to mind sharing space with another caged, small animal. He has a sweet personality and would be a great addition to any home looking for a loveable companion to share their time with.

Rusty has tested positive for FIV. He still deserves a wonderful life and a safe and loving home. FIV is not a death sentence and cats with this virus can live long, happy and healthy lives. They just need a home aware of their condition and able to provide them supportive health care as required. You can read about FIV here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Cambridge 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 Cambridge, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Cambridge.

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