River's Story...
Hello, my name is River. I'm a young girl who came to the rescue very, very pregnant. In fact, I gave birth just hours after my arrival. I was an amazing mama cat. I took such wonderful care of my babies. It's my nature - instinctively nurturing, loving and caring. I have a friendly, affectionate and easy going personality. I am a social girl who likes to be around people. I even like to help with the chores, especially the laundry. I am just naturally happy to hang out, relax and spend time with kind people. I love being petted. I'm a 1-year-old, spayed female, shorthaired tabby cat in need of a loving home for life. I have great manners and I'm very well behaved. I use my litterbox 100% of the time. I'm not very demanding. I'm more laid back and mellow. I love everyone I meet and I've never met a stranger. I do enjoy playing with toys. I'm a great cat who deserves a fantastic home and someone who will love me for life. I am not a big talker, but I make the cutest chattering sounds that will warm your heart. Just give me a chance and prepare to fall in love! Adoption fee: $60. Adopt a pair: $90. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 60 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

River, a Troy Abyssinian cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Abyssinian for sale in Troy, or seeking a Abyssinian cat from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Abyssinian breeders who help with Abyssinian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
