Tank's Story...

Tank was first spotted sitting at the side of a rural road with his brothers, and trying to hide behind his mother. The person who spotted this little group was not about to leave them there, so into the car they all went. Now happily adjusted to being an indoor kitten, Tank has professed his love for soft blankets and snuggles that go on for hours. When soft blankets and snuggles are in short supply, he will turn to wrestling or snuggling with his brothers Moo & Junior. Despite still being kitten-sized, Tank has a full-sized cat ego and believes himself to be bigger than he is - when they all gather around the food dish, Tank gives a growl to try and establish that it's HIS food dish. I say try, because he has yet to convince any of the others that he means it. Tank adores chasing after wand toys and is generally the first to catch it, no matter what obstacles (furniture, other kittens, food bowls, people, air molecules) might be in the way.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tank, a Alexandria Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
