Cheddar's Info...

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

Cheddar's Story...
Cheddar is a mellow sweetheart. He truly enjoys it when you pet him, and leaves no doubt in your mind as he happily kneads his paws and purrs. In fact, he is a master-kneader! He will knead the blanket he's laying on, the kitten he is napping with, or the air - whichever is most convenient.

Cheddar will often roll over onto his back in order to encourage you to pet his belly. He purrs and kneads the air while you do this, of course. He also enjoys keeping you company at your desk - especially in your lap, happily accepting petting and belly rubs.

Although he is a mellow guy, he is still quite playful and has fun interacting with Fontina and the adult cats in his foster home. Cheddar's fur is a slightly darker shade of orange and will be medium to long in length.

Fontina is a beautiful girl, and the only female from her litter. Some estimate the orange tabby population to be about 75% male, so she knows she's special! As gorgeous as she is, she is by no means all about looks. She not only keeps up with the boys in her foster home, she keeps them in line! She is a master pouncer and an intrepid explorer.

She needs a little time to warm up to people, but she sure is worth it. When you convince Fontina that your lap is hers for the taking, she will bring her purrs and snuggle in.

She has thoroughly charmed all of the adult cats in her foster home, and even the most curmudgeonly of them has been caught grooming her. Her fur is a beautiful light orange and very soft, and will be short or medium in length.

These kittens were born in early April 2009 and have completed their shots and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheddar, a Portland Domestic Mediumhair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Mediumhair for sale in Portland, or seeking a Domestic Mediumhair kitten 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 Mediumhair breeders who help with Domestic Mediumhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
