Basil's Story...
Basil and his 2 siblings were born to a feral calico that was being fed by a nice family. When they realized there were kittens, they trapped the mother and kittens and brought them to the shelter for help. The shelter decided all were too feral and moved them on to Forgotten Felines. Forgotten Felines spayed the mother and re-released her where she came from, took the littlest of the kittens into foster care as it wasn't big enough to fix, and fixed the bigger 2 kittens and returned them to be re-released. The lady feeding them didn't want to just return the kittens to being outdoor ferals and thus their current foster mother took over. Curry, the sister has been adopted, and Basil is hoping it will be his turn soon now.
Basil was very scared when he first came to us, but after a few months has made amazing progress. He now loves attention, purrs readily when pet, loves to climb in laps and cuddle, and is very charming. He is still shy with strangers and will need a little time to settle in to a new home. He's great with other cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Basil, a Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Santa Rosa.

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