Inky's Story...

Inky turned up in her rescuers yard last fall, and while friendly to humans she wasn't too sure about this whole making friends business. After much patience (and treats) on the part of her rescuers, she was eventually persuaded that people were trustworthy and that, as a cat, she was fully capable of getting them to do what she wanted. And then she learned that houses are warm and have soft spots to nap in. Inky happily moved in at that point. She is a quick learner, and knows that it's in her best interest to keep her people happy, so it won't take long to teach her to not jump on the kitchen counter to steal some chicken off of your plate. Inky is an affectionate mini-panther, and while she's still getting used to being picked up and held, her laid-back, snuggle bug nature is easily evident. She enjoys snuggling up beside her people or snuggling in their laps, and if scritched in just the right spot her tail curls into a corkscrew. Favorite toys are wine corks, sparkle balls, and crinkly paper. Sweet-tempered Inky has a stated preference for quiet environments with no dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Inky, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Alexandria.

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