Panik's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Panik's Story...
Hey guys! My name’s Panik. I was named after Joe Panik, the San Francisco Giants second baseman. My siblings, Madison, Posey, Gillaspie, Kelby, Casilla, and I were rescued by Henrico Humane Society when we were really little. Our foster home is nice, but the other kitties tell me that forever homes are even better, so I’ve made it my mission to find one of those!

I think I’m pretty special because I’m the only boy in my family. Do you know what it’s like to grow up in a room full of chatty little girls? Sheesh! I love my sisters, but sometimes I just need a little me time. And I think the best kind of me time is the kind where I snuggle up in my foster’s lap for a long, quiet nap.

Don’t get me wrong though, I sure do love to play. I have tried out a lot of toys in my foster home, but two of my favorites are that wand thing with the strings and feathers on the end and those crinkle balls because I can chase them all over. I’m also a champion climber. If there’s a cat tree around, you’ll find me at the top!

I don’t have a lot of requirements for my forever home. I really love people, so I want a home with special humans who will give me lots of attention and let me snuggle whenever I want. I also think that I’d really like to have a furry friend to play with in my forever home. If that sounds like your house, sign me up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Panik, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Richmond.

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