Mooch's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Mooch's Story...
Are you looking for a puppy in a cat's body? If so, you must meet me! My name is Mooch ... 10 lbs of puppy-love and catitude coming at you! I'm a lover-boy who is very affectionate and friendly. I love attention and spending time with people. I am litterbox trained. I'm young too, about 1 year old. I enjoy playing with toys and watching the birds and squirrels outside the window. One of my favorite pastimes is chasing the laser light. Sometimes, when you walk, I will nip at your ankles ... I can act more like a puppy than a cat. One of my favorite spots to lounge is in a shoebox that's two sizes too small. But I love it - comfy and cozy, just what a puppy-cat wants in life. I like to climb the cat tower and to nap in my cat cubby. I would prefer a home where I am the only cat. If you're looking for a loving kitty with a lot of personality, please give me a chance! Adoption fee: $60. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 60 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mooch, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Troy.

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