Mooch's Info...

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

Mooch's Story...
Mooch showed up at our back door telling us that he was abandoned, needed love, and was HUNGRY!



He needed to be neutered and have an abscess treated on his face, so off he went to the vet. During his recuperation, we discovered that he loves belly rubs. Just like a dog he'll roll over on his back and then if you give him belly rubs, he'll lick your hand. He does appreciate attention.



Mooch is indifferent to our dogs, and tolerant of our other cats after slow introductions. He let the neighborhood girls pick him up and carry him around - he just can't get enough love!!!



He is great at keeping people company and loves lap time, a big hug, snuggles, a warm bed and, of course, some canned food.



For a young adult, Mooch is quite small in stature, but he has a huge heart to share with a loving family. Please consider adopting him and giving him all the love, attention, belly rubs, and cuddles he desires, along with tasty, regular meals.



Mooch is neutered, up-to-date with vaccines and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.



If you would like to meet this affectionate guy and have him test your belly-rubbing skills, phone our cat coordinator at 503-284-8768 evenings and weekends or fill out our "I'm interested" form. ARCF’s mission is to rescue homeless animals so we do not take in owner released pets.



Please note, we adopt out to the following counties: Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Clark.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mooch, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Portland.

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