Athena's Story...
Hello! My name is Athena. My foster family estimates that I was born around July 1, 2009. I was found along with my littermates, Zeus and Apollo, abandoned by our feral mama in a pile of cans, plastic bags, and weeds. We were all very itchy, no doubt due the heavy flea load that we had, and we were all starting to get sick. My foster family caught us and cleaned us all up. We were so happy to be rid of those awful things biting us all the time! Still, adjusting to life indoors stressed us out, so our foster family took us in and ran a whole bunch of tests on us to see why we were still sick. They even ended up taking us (and our medications!) with them when they went on vacation because they were worried that we weren't going to make it. But we all made it through, and are now looking for forever homes of our own!

I am a very sweet, petite kitten. I love other cats, but my best friend is my foster family's small dog. She is the best friend in the world! I like to play with her tail and I even get going trying to catch my own! I am very gentle when I play and only use my nails if I am scared. I love to play with any type of toy, but I especially enjoy laser pointers and mice with catnip inside. I am very submissive when it comes to eating--my brothers will push me aside during meals, so my foster family has to feed my sister and I in a separate dish than the boys at mealtimes. I love to cuddle with anyone who will return my affection, whether human, dog, or cat. I generally sleep curled up with my best friend wherever she happens to be resting, but I also like sleeping on my foster parents' pillows, blankets, or laundry baskets. Life with my foster family is great, but I wish that I could find a family and home of my own. Please contact my foster family if you think that I could be a new addition to your home--I can't wait to meet you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Elverta Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Elverta, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Elverta.

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