Monkey's Story...
Monkey is a very friendly and loving cat who will enjoy spending the evening curled up in your lap, watching TV with you, or keeping you company while you read a book. As a Hurricane Katrina survivor, he is still quite frightened by heavy rainstorms. Monkey and his previous owner lost their home to Katrina and his owner was then diagnosed with cancer and couldn't keep him. A Katrina volunteer who met his owner promised to find him a good home and that is how he ended up in the Bay Area. Although Monkey was unfortunately declawed by his previous owner, he holds his own pretty well with other cats. He knows his name and will come when called. He is very tolerant with young children and so eager for attention that he doesn’t even mind them handling him. He doesn’t tolerate dry cat food well so he will need a wet diet, but is otherwise in excellent health. Monkey is a lovely cat who will enrich your life with his sweet love. He likes other cats and would be fine living with another. He probably wouldn't mind a calm dog. We estimate Monkey was born in 2004.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Monkey, a petaluma 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 petaluma, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in petaluma.

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