Jess's Story...
I'm a beautiful black cat named Jess. I was abandoned at Friends of Homeless Animals with my kitten -- just left right there in the driveway, my baby and me. My goodness, what a thought! Well, at least I was left at FOHA where my baby and I would be safe! My kitten was adopted, but I'm still waiting to find my forever home. That's often the case, you see -- folks want to adopt those cute little kittens. But cute kittens grow up to be adult cats -- just like me. We moms tend to wait longer to find our forever homes. I'm not sure why that is. We're just as loving and affectionate as a youngster, if not more so. We adults are ever so appreciative of a loving home because, frankly, we remember what the alternative is! Now, I'm not jealous of cute kittens like my little one. I'm just wondering when it's going to be my turn. I'm so fortunate that while I wait, I have all the shelter, food, and good care that I need here at FOHA. In fact, I must admit that I have hearty helpings of the all-you-can-eat buffet -- and I've put on a few pounds. In fact, I'm one of the larger cats here in the communal living cattery -- all the better to see me, right? You certainly can't overlook a cat as large, lovely, and distinctive as me. I enjoy love and cuddles, snuggles and pets. I don't particularly enjoy having my picture taken. Whenever the camera comes out, I'm even more inclined to look for lovin'. I'll head-butt your hand if it's holding the camera. I'll sit on your lap, far too close to the lens. I'll decide that whenever you're holding that silver box with the flash, that's exactly the time I need to clean myself.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jess, 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.
