Mickey's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mickey's Story...
Mickey is an absolutely wonderful cat. He has been at our sanctuary since he was a kitten in 2006. He initially had a very serious eye infection, and sadly his eye had to be removed. He became very loving and friendly once this was done, as that eye was causing him pain. He still remains cautious initially, which is to be expected being visually impaired on one side, but loves to be loved. He loves to be brushed, and we recommend that daily as he has a short thick coat.

Mickey has been tested, neutered,routinely vaccinated with boosters and rabies vaccines, treated monthly for fleas, and has been wormed. He would make a great companion to someone with a quiet home. Remember he has lived his entire life to this point at our sanctuary, so it will take him a bit to adjust to a new home of his own. Another non-dominant cat would smooth that transition for him. He's used to having buddies. Small children are not recommended, older children possibly. He is not used to a bustling household, but a quieter environment.

Mickey does qualify in our Senior to Senior Program. We do require a veterinarian reference prior to adoption, and a cat carrier be brought to the adoption appointment for safe transport to his new home. No exceptions. His basic adoption fee is $50, for non senior participants.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mickey, a Ashland 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 Ashland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Ashland.

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