Calypso's Story...
Calypso arrived at the shelter in early November, and now that she's seen the vet, she is ready to find a home for good, and a family forever. She is a stunning tabby, with a lot of hints of Bengal breeding in her, though we know from her physique that she is most definitely not a pure-bred Bengal. She is an absolute darling cat, who loves to be held close, hugged tight, and kissed as much as we can give her. She's so enamored of human contact that she rubs faces and noses with her volunteer friends. She gets along just fine with the other shelter cats, even the cranky ones -- she is not intimidated by them, but she is also mindful to respect their space. She is an ideal candidate for most homes, those with cats and even young children.

We're not completely sure how she feels about dogs. When we brought dogs in to meet the cats, she retreated in her cage and hissed, but did not show excessive stress. She might be fine living with a dog that has lived with cats before. If you are interested in Calypso and have a dog, please let us know what kind of dog, and we'll see how she feels about a dog close in size to yours.

Somebody, at some point, showed this cat how wonderful human love is, she is so happy to receive it from the volunteers, so perhaps you or someone you know can carry on with Calypso, and give her the time, attention and affection that we simply don't have the hours to give her at the shelter. She's a great cat, and deserves better than a cage!

Calypso is estimated to be 5 years old, is box-trained, spayed, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50 (cash or check only, please).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Calypso, a Clayville 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 Clayville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Clayville.

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