George's Story...
My name is George, and I’m here to tell you my story. I’ve had a pretty rough life. I was found living in a home with dozens of other cats when my owner passed away. There were just so many of us and just one of him. When our owner died, we all went to a frightening place called the county shelter. I was so ill and in dire need of medical attention, but it would take a while until I would receive it. When I was rescued and taken to the vet, I stayed there for weeks on IV fluids and then for weeks more I needed to be treated with antibiotics to fight infection. The county shelter was such a horrible place, you see. They didn’t have food for us cats or anywhere to put us, so they stuffed us in crates and boxes together, literally piled on top of each other. That was many years ago, and I like to forget that home. Really, the communal cattery at Friends of Homeless Animals is the home I’ve loved the best. There, I have lots of other cat friends to keep me company. Although I’m no longer a kitten, my youthful nature comes out when they’re here in the cattery, as I love to run and play with those little ones. I love to play all kinds of games and I just love toys. Once I get to know you, I love to receive pets and will even rub up against your leg for attention. But I’ve been at Friends for quite a long time, and they tell me it’s time to find a forever home or even a foster home of my own. You see, I have been diagnosed with diabetes, which means I need insulin shots every day. Before I take my shot, I need to be sure to eat. But it’s kind of hard at the shelter to make sure I eat right before my insulin injection. That’s why I’m looking for a foster home (or even an adoptive home) of my own – but not by myself. I would definitely like to be in a home with another cat or cats. I’m a big fan of canned cat food, which is very good for a cat with my diabetic condition. I am very good about getting my shot and I don’t complain about it a bit. But after my shot, I’d like some snuggles and belly rubs, please. Belly rubs are my favorite kind of affection to receive. In exchange, I give adorable head-butts. But not too strong! No, they’re given with lots and lots of love. Would you open up your home and heart to a special guy like me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

George, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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