Ferdinand--Gentle Giant's Story...
Ferdinand is a big sweet 5-year-old love-hunk. He has a huge head with sweet green eyes and a cow-cat style black-and-white coat. He is shy at first but responds gratefully to a slow approach and gentle head scritches. Ferdinand is a mellow creature who would love to snuggle up with you. He should do well with other cats after a proper introduction. He would probably be fine with a respectful dog and with older children who can respect his initial shyness. He uses his litter box every time and is well behaved around the house. He has a stubby tail—about 4 inches long—which looks like there was some trauma long ago. It’s left him with a funny bob-tail and some sensitivity about being touched around his tail. But chin rubs? Can’t get enough of them!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ferdinand--Gentle Giant, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Worcester.

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