Cotton's Story...
Cotton is a big, intelligent boy who is quickly learning how to make friends with new people. He and his sister Candy love being petted and, thanks to their experienced foster Mom, are showing other kittens how to mind their manners and wait their turn for attention! Cotton has quietly asserted himself to teach an older cat that it is not acceptable to shove others aside and has become a caretaker to younger kittens. Quite a remarkable young man.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cotton, a Fairfax 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 Fairfax, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Fairfax.

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