Sheba's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sheba's Story...
Sheba was pulled from a nearby animal shelter. She had a hard time adjusting but is quickly becoming one of my fosters favorites. Her foster writes "Sheba is the most mellow female cat I've ever met. She is so even natured I was surprised when she became playful. She will play when a toy is brought to her to play with and she does play a little when her sister Nala starts the game but for the most part I find Sheba laying in one of her many nap spots. She is fond of my bed at the foot or cozied up next to a window in the sun. She gets along with all cats. She is not aggressive at all and will run away from conflict. Because of her laid back personality I believe she would get along with any animal. I also believe she would be a good cat for a household with small children. The only problem she would have is if the children tried to pick her up. She does not like to be picked up and especially picked up and then walked with. I believe it's a trust issue with her and the longer I work with her and the more she trusts me the more comfortable she becomes in those pick up or carry situations. She also takes a little time to come out of her shell so to speak. She needs to feel comfortable and she takes her exploring of the house and new living situation a little at a time. She was happy in a small box the first night she came to foster and took her time expanding her space from there while her sister Nala was ready to go and run the whole house a few times over."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheba, a Atlantic American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Atlantic, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in Atlantic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Atlantic 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 Atlantic 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 American Shorthair breeders who help with American Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Atlantic paves the way for another one to be saved.
