Teddy's Story...
Teddy is a handsome ginger Tabby about 2 yrs. old. He is sweet, friendly and gentle.He's a bit shy at first but he warms almost instantly. He really likes to have his chin scratched and be petted for a bit. Teddy will rub against your legs and will also be happy to roll over for a chest rub, but no tummies, please!

You can pick Teddy up but he doesn’t like to be held for more than a kiss and a hug. He does like to be where you are and will sometimes want to sit on your lap or next to you for a snooze while you watch TV or read a book.

Teddy loves his catnip toys and likes to play chase with his sparkle mice and sparkle balls. He would love to have you toss them across the room but also plays by himself when the mood strikes.

Teddy is a bit skittish so he will run at unexpected noise. But he is a sweet and affectionate kitty who would make a great companion. Though he would be fine as an only kitty Teddy would probably love to be in a home with other friendly kitties and maybe even a nice dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Teddy, a Novato American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Novato, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in Novato.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Novato 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 Novato 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 American Shorthair breeders who help with American Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Novato paves the way for another one to be saved.
