Penelope's Info...

Penelope's Story...
Penelope is a sleek black kitty with just a nip of white on her chest. According to one volunteer she is always wearing the classic "little black dress."

Penelope was born sometime in mid April, 2016. She was found alone in some bushes and was taken into Dusty Paws foster care as a “bottle baby.” Even before her eyes were open, the kitten showed the kind of spirit it took to stay alive, eagerly grasping at her bottle to eat and awkwardly trying to explore her new environment.

Without natural mother and siblings, at first Penelope didn't know how to interact with other cats. But she has blossomed into a fun and loving young cat who even teaches the younger foster kittens to play with toys. She can be mischievous too - she was recently found running through the house with a $5 bill she "found." She is okay with the dogs in her foster home.

If you are looking for an active, people-loving companion, Penelope is your girl. She notices what’s going on around her and if it’s interesting she gets antsy wanting to be involved. Very playful, she entertains visitors at showings with her antics. At home, she loves to cuddle and purr when you’re sitting quietly or lying down. It’s almost impossible not to want to hug her.

Penelope was recently spayed. She is vaccinated, micro chipped, and tested FIV/FeLV negative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penelope, a Castro Valley 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 Castro Valley, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Castro Valley.

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