Marlin's Story...
MARLIN is a gorgeous young black and gray tabby with tan highlights and beautiful marbled swirls, about 1 to 2 years old. He was surrendered to WCDC after his human mom and dad lost their housing. Marlin is initially easily startled in new situations, but he has settled in quickly in his foster home and is such a love bug who is eager for attention. He loves to be petted and will often give head butts or get up on his hind legs to reach out for your hand as he is being loved on. He will occasionally mouth when overstimulated, so he should not be in a home with young kids -- and he will need a cat-savvy owner who understands how to work with a kitty who just lost his people and is hungry for attention. Marlin can be quite playful and likes to cuddle after he's had lots of petting . Marlin can be feisty with other cats, and might do best as an only cat where he is getting all the love! His adoption fee is $75, which is strictly to help cover our costs. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV/FELV, microchipped, deflead and dewormed and comes with a free vet visit. He is currently in foster care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marlin, a Springfield 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 Springfield, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Springfield.

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