Rick's Story...
This sweet boy is Rick. Some of you may remember the story we posted about his bonded brother Morty a couple of months ago. To our shock, Morty ingested something at the store he was at which poisoned him, and he became critically ill. Despite our best efforts, his situation deteriorated. We did all we could, but he didn't make it....

And Rick has been heart-broken since. He misses his brother so much, that he barely interacts with other cats, despite usually loving company. His whole world has been shattered.

The thing is, is underneath the despair, there is such a wonderful boy. He just needs a little bit of love to help him open up again ❤️

Rick is an easy-going guy who loves to hang out in his cat tree. He likes to be around people too, and enjoys cuddles. He would do great with children, as he is a gentle boy. He is also sure to entertain with his fondness for opening cupboards 😂

Rick does need a little bit of patience, as he sometimes still has a tendency to get a little bit shy and withdrawn. After all, it's always a little bit hard to open yourself up to love after a loss.

But, the patience will be worth it, we promise! Rick is a very very sweet boy, who undoubtedly will make a wonderful companion. He will also need a cat-friend, as he does enjoy company.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rick, a THORNHILL 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 THORNHILL, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in THORNHILL.

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