Slim's Story...
Howdy, partner. I’m Slim. Sounds like a cowboy name, don’t you think? It might be said that I’ve had a renegade past, and I’m definitely from the west—West Virginia, that is. I was hanging out in that wild, wonderful state with a group of feral cats, cared for by generous neighborhood folks. A free-spirited sort, I would always stay just out of their reach when I’d come to chow down on the good grub they put outside for us—our daily chuck wagon, you might say. But one day, this ole kitty cowpoke was feeling rather pokey, a bit under the weather. Even when the folks came near me, I hadn’t the energy to lift myself up. I had injuries to both of my front legs—nothing serious, but still, it took the spunk right out of me. I had a terrible ear infection as well, and I was what you might term a down-on-his-luck fella. Well, those fine folks picked me right up, helped me clean myself off, and discovered in quick order that I’m no feral, I’m a right friendly guy. I LOVE to talk, telling stories of my wild days of wrangling. I also LOVE laps and snuggling next to friendly folks on the couch. That’s how this old cowboy Slim would love to spend the rest of his days—relaxing while watching the tumbleweed (or westerns on TV would do just fine) with a loving family. (Please Note: I can only be adopted in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. There will be NO exceptions to this policy.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Slim, 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.
