Misty's Story...
This soft charcoal-gray cat was turned in by a veterinarian who loved her sweet ways and her shy personality. Originally brought into the vet’s office because her owner asked that Misty be euthanized, this healthy girl went home with the vet for a time, but the other cats there stressed her out. She would be so perfect for someone with cat experience and a yen to take a timid cat, help her learn to trust them, give her lots of affection on Misty’s own terms, at first, and turn her into a trusting, loving cat. Misty has never been picked up, or appears to have had much attention at all, and she sure could use it. She was shy during her test, but she showed signs of wanting to understand what it’s all about to be able to be someone’s beloved pet. She made eye contact, she allowed herself to be picked up, and she proved to be very steady for such a shy girl. She does let her people know when she’s feeling uncomfortable, but she is not mean about establishing her boundaries. If you have a quiet home with no pets or chaos-causing creatures, and you would like to expand Misty’s boundaries, the rewards reaped between human and cat would be boundless.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Misty, a Westbrook 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 Westbrook, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Westbrook.

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