Sombra's Story...
Meet Sombra! (Sombra is Spanish for shade or shadow.)

Sombrita is a beautiful 12-month old female with a mellow and super sweet personality. She loves being scratched behind the ears, and easily warms up to new people. When she is not exploring her surroundings, she enjoys long sits on windowsills and chasing pajama pants.

Here is Sombras incredible rescue story: My father thought he found a dead cat by the trash bins. It was motionless, eyes closed, and flies surrounded the body. As he reached down to throw it into the dumpster, the cat sprang to life, hissed, spit, and hurriedly limped under the patio furniture. My father jumped back at its reanimation and proceeded to leave it alone. After a couple of failed attempts to contact animal control, my father called me to let me know about the injured cat.

I returned home after work to find what seemed to be a dying cat in the shade of my house. Feces was caked to its fur and it was obviously in bad shape. I ran into my house for a can of tuna and water. When it painfully propped itself to drink the water, I knew there was still life in this kitty, so I wrapped the cat in an old towel, and rushed it to the pet hospital.

Some three hours and $400 later, Sombra was discharged with pain killers, antibiotics, saline bags for warmth, and a donated cage. (The word sombra is Spanish for shadow or shade. I thought it was a fitting name as Sombrita is gray with white boots and gloves and I found her in the shade of my house.) Sombra was treated for hypothermia and severe bruising from bite wounds to her rear legs. Although she was lame on her right hind leg, the x-rays showed there were no fractures.

I've been nursing Sombra back to health for the past two and half weeks. She is doing wonderful now. She is off her meds, eating well, and uses a litter box by herself. Her fur, although, is still growing in from where the vet had to shave to treat the puncture wounds. My roommate still teases her by incessantly asking, "Cat, where's your pants? You forgot your pants!"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sombra, a Los Angeles Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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