Preacher (special needs)'s Story...
My name is Preacher, and I am the most affectionate kitty EVER! I am a black and white tuxedo DSH fella who was born in April 2016. I am a lap kitty extraordinaire and just love to cuddle.
I had a really rough start in life. I ended up at a shelter like a lot of other kitties. Hey, I knew that I didn't belong there, so I meowed so loudly and persistently that I caught my future foster meowmy's attention. It's a good thing that she rescued me out of there because I was starting to get an upper respiratory infection. Actually I got REALLY sick immediately after that, and if I had stayed in the shelter, I know that I wouldn't have gotten the same excellent care that my foster mom gave me.
My eyes literally abscessed from the inside out. My foster mom took me to a vet specialist who said that he had NEVER seen an eye as bad as mine. At that time, I wasn't strong enough or big enough yet to remove it. So my foster mom had to keep medicating me and getting me to eat to build me up. I loved the canned food and all that attention! It really bonded me with my foster meowmy. Maybe that's why I'm such a cuddle bug/ lover boy!
After a couple of weeks when I was stronger, the specialist removed one eye AND stitched my other eye to prevent its getting any worse. I am all well now! So what if I had one eye removed and the other one is a little cloudy? It doesn't slow me down AT ALL! I get along fine and have some vision despite the cloudiness in my remaining eye. I play with the other kitties in my foster home; I love to cuddle; and heck, I even like the dogs in my foster home!
I am a special kitty who has so much love to give to someone compassionate enough to look past my slight imperfections. Look at my shoulder marking -- doesn't it look like a sideways black heart on white? That means I will love whoever adopts me forever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Preacher (special needs), a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Houston.

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