Thing 1 and Thing 2's Story...
These two little kittens were dropped off at our vet's office on August 1 because they were rescued by a caring young girl who took one look at them and realized they were very ill. They were under weight, had upper respiratory infections and eyes so badly inflamed that my vet was not sure she could save their eyesight. But Dr. Nancy Ruth often works miracles and she did so once again because as their pictures show, their eyes are wide open and clear.

Because these two, a tiger tabby girl and a buff tabby boy, are all but joined at the hip they became Thing 1 and Thing 2, only lacking the stars--for those of you who do not read Dr. Seuss I highly recommend him. They go everywhere together; if one goes to the vet, the other goes along for company. Thing 2, the boy, is a total cuddle bug while Thing 1 is more wiggly but will cuddle on her own whim. They may always remain a little smaller than most kittens but that only adds to their allure. On August 1 their age was estimated at 3 weeks, so they are now about 11 weeks old. Their favorite toy is something that make a crinkle noise or feather on a wand, as you can see in the last picture, taken at a recent adoption show.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thing 1 and Thing 2, a Laurel 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 Laurel, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten 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.
