Ian's Story...
I am Ian. A fluffy and very playful boy who enjoys being held. I have a great purr which I will gladly use to put you to sleep. I smile a lot too. Guess because each day is great for me. I have been diagnosed with patella luxation. What is that you ask? Well, it does not stop me from chasing toys or playing with my friends. You see the patella, or "kneecap," is normally located in a groove called the trochlear groove, found at the end of the femur. The term luxating means "out of place" or "dislocated". Therefore, a luxating patella is a kneecap that 'pops out' or moves out of its normal location and then goes back in. I know it all sounds technical. This makes me run a bit funny. I do have to take it slow on the stairs, but I still go up and down the stairs. I like to play with the ball in the circle and carry around fuzzy toys. When my feet go out from under me, I get right back up and run some more. I look out the window and watch the birds. Foster Mommy has stairs so I can climb into bed at night and snuggle. We watch TV until we both go to sleep. I give a few kisses too. A good way to say good night.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ian, a Smithfield 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 Smithfield, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Smithfield.

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