Scruffy's Story...
If you are interested in meeting Scruffy, please complete our adoption questionnaire at

Scruffy, born approximately 1/20/12, came to us due to housing and moving situations of his previous owner. He is a social and loving kitty that is looking for a good home to provide him with the love and attention he craves and deserves.

Scruffy will rub against your legs, cuddle next to you on the couch, or get in your lap. He loves to be petted and has a nice purrr. However, he will reach out for you or lightly nip at your hand if you stop petting him before he thinks you should stop. He loves to play with the laser light and string toys. He uses the scratching post and enjoys the cardboard scratchers. Scruffy gets along well with other friendly cats and has previously been around children. He was an inside/outside kitty but has adjusted well to being inside only, which is better for him as he is very sensitive to fleas. As a young adult, he is still young enough to play. While he gets along with other cats, he would also be content to be an only kitty and be ok alone while you are at work/school as long as he receives attention when you are home. Kittens are cute, but older cats make great companions.

Adoption events are held at the Fair Oaks Petco (Madison at Hazel) on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scruffy, a North Highlands 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 North Highlands, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in North Highlands.

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