Gemma's Info...

Gemma's Story...
Gemma - was most likely born in mid-June of this year. She was found as a stray when she was only about 4 weeks old. She has wanted nothing but non-stop attention since she first arrived. She is quite the curious one with beautiful markings and a non-stop purr. She has been very lonely as she is the only kitten we have at the shelter right now. She would very much like a home with another cat or cat friendly dog for a companion. She does like to chew wires so potential adopters will need to be sure to kitten proof her living quarters. Gemma has had her first kitten vaccines, has been dewormed and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gemma, a Fairfax 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 Fairfax, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Fairfax.

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