Opal's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.

Opal's Story...
Opal along with eleven other cats was rescued from a situation that was not suitable. Opal is five years old. She along with the others were kept in cat carriers and were never left out; the conditions were unsanitary as you can imagine. These cats were overjoyed to be release from the carriers. Some had a difficult time walking because they had not been able to stretch their legs in the carriers. We are happy to report they are using their legs and there does not seem to be any permanent damage. The cats are a bit afraid because of their new surroundings but they really love any attention they are given. We are hoping in time they can recover and adjust to appropriate living conditions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Opal, a Somerset 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 Somerset, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Somerset.

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