TIP's Story...
Tip is an identical twin female kitten found abandoned in the country on a blustery, sub-zero winter night. She was with her twin, Tap, and their little kitten friend, Tux. They were starving, scared & freezing, looking for refuge, when they were led by an apparent heavenly guardian angel to the porch of one of our volunteers who heard their cries for help. They were so grateful to come inside to warm beds, treated to food for full bellies, and later the medical care they needed for respiratory infections from being left out in the cold as little ones during the brutal winter. We imagined them together resembling the movie "The Incredible Journey" as they trekked through the prairie seeking safety & love. What a journey they made, and are now recovered, happy & healthy. Tip & Tap are a bit more reserved and will take more time to warm up to a new environment, while Tux is a cuddler who would prefer to be snuggled into her person. They are bonded to one another, the three of them, but we know it is an incredibly tall order to find a home for three kittens. It is our hope we can at least keep the twins together as they would do best not being separated.

Tip is a gorgeous combination of Tiger Stripe & Leopard Spotted Gray & Black Tabby, born approximately early Fall of 2016. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, given Revolution & dewormed. She has perfect litterbox manners & tested negative for FIV/FELV. Adoption fee is $100.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TIP, a Lincoln 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 Lincoln, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Lincoln.

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