Niobe's Story...
I’m a dilute tortie cutie named Niobe. My name has a literary origin – from Homer’s “Illiad.” In the story, gods Apollo and Artemis struck down all of Niobe’s children. I lost all of my children, my kittens, to poor health when they were very, very little. In addition to the name Niobe, I have nicknames, such as “Fancy Cat,” as my foster daddy calls me. That’s because I like to sit and lay down like a little queen, paws tucked under me and tail wrapped around me. Now, don’t start thinking I’m some “Miss Priss” of a cat – really, I’m a kitten myself with a penchant for silly playing. Just put a toy down near me, and I’m batting it around and bouncing high into the air. I play with the other cats here in my foster home – well, when I want to play. Other times, I just want my purr-sonal space, and I give a “back off” hiss to let them know who’s boss. I love cuddling with my foster family at bedtime and first thing in the morning. When my foster mom and dad wake up, I want to start my morning off right with plenty of pets, a bit of grooming (including grooming my foster humans), and a climb under the covers. I’m a little girl with a big purr-sonality who’s ready to find her forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Niobe, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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