Chessie's Story...
Chessie is probably the dream cat of many people. He will great you at the door, follow you around, hop up to snuggle beside you, snuggle with you in bed, never scratch the rugs or furniture and never wave hi to you from the edge of your favorite 7 foot china cabinet. He is, however, shy and he will need about a week or two to do (or not do) all these wonderful things. Being a couch potato kitty, he would love to have a human friend to curl up next to for an energetic round of watching TV and purring.

His foster mom says "He has a wonderful noisy purr that rattles his whole being and he loves to climb in my lap, put his head on my shoulder and do his motorboat purr." He lives with other cats and does not mind kittens or other adult cats, but he would not be comfortable with an aggressive companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chessie, a Laurel 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 Laurel, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Laurel.

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