Angel's Story...
Poor Angel! Barely a year old, her owner was moving to Idaho and brought her to the vet to have her euthanized, so the vet called Cat Rescue. Angel was so grief-stricken that she wouldn't come out of her carrier except at night to eat and use the litterbox. After a couple of weeks, we called the lady (who was moving in a few days) and asked if she could please visit Angel ... As soon as Angel heard her owner's voice, she hurried out of her carrier and was so excited and happy! The owner petted her, and then unexpectedly and for the first time ever, Angel slapped her owner so hard it drew blood, and she squalled loudly. BETRAYED! She was telling her owner that she was angry to be left in this strange place ... The owner left town, and Angel was difficult to deal with, still angry and fearful. But now she can be quite sweet though sometimes will slap and cry as though she remembers the injustice and holds you responsible.. She seems too fearful to be in a huge house or with other, more aggressive animals, and would do better alone in a quiet home so she can calm down and change from Devil Girl back to Angel! She has a startled look on her face that's pretty funny. Would you be the person she trusts and loves again? Her previous owner was elderly, quiet and calm, and she kept her in her bedroom since she was living with family. Come see her and admire her ticked, beautiful tawny fur and GIANT eyes!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angel, a Petersburg 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 Petersburg, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Petersburg.

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