Myrtle's Story...
Sweet mamma Myrtle was once a stray from the Ybor city ship yard. She is not even two years old and is a tiny little panther girl with beautiful eyes and silky fur. She's about the size of a 9 month old kitten. She'd been fed and looked after by the kind employees. Myrtle was not completely trusting of her caretakers but knew they meant she wouldn't have to go hungry. When a St. Francis volunteer noticed she was once again very pregnant, we jumped into action. Myrtle was trapped and brought into the safety of our foster home. A few days later, she had 6 perfect little nuggets. In time, Myrtle quickly learned to trust and then love her humans, even search them out for affection and attention. She has been an amazing mom to her 6 plus 4 other orphaned kittens. Now it's her turn to be spoiled and to get to a kitten herself! She loves to be petted and will purr and purr. Myrtle also loves a little bit a cat nip. She is not a fan of being picked up and carried around or having her head petted. She's far too dignified for that silliness! Myrtle never wants to go back to the scary outside world where she had to fight for food and safety every single day. She has worked so hard taking care of little ones. Now it's her turn to find her forever home. Could you give her a chance at a happy and safe indoor life? Maybe she will even get a home with one of her little babies! If you're interested in learning more about Myrtle or any of her little ones, please email me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Myrtle, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Tampa.

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