Madeline (Maddy)'s Story...
Meet Madeline:
Madeline is approximately 1.5 years old. She is currently in Foster care. Madeline is a beautiful girl who will need an experienced adopter. We don't know anything about Madeline's past, but she needs a special family who is willing to let her just be herself.

She will follow her foster mom around from room to room, watch her and sit by her, but just doesn't like being pet or held. She will bat and/or hiss if she doesn't feel comfortable with someones hand approaching her. She wants to be loved on her own terms. That could change over time, once she has a trusting relationship with her adopter. Right now we feel she would be best as an only cat, or with a cat who would be respectful of her space. A home that is fairly quiet with no Children please.

Madeline's adoption donation is $115, which includes: Spay, Rabies, Microchip, Distemper, Strongid Dewormer, FELV and FIV Testing, which is negative.

If you would like to give Madeline her second chance, please email us at: for a preliminary adoption Questionnaire.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Madeline (Maddy), a Highland 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 Highland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Highland.

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