Tortie's Story...
beautiful girl here is Tortie. She was living outside as a stray for quite some time. A kind woman began to feed her and befriended her; though it took a few months for her to trust. Tortie would greet the woman everyday and they would sit outside together. After she had eaten she would demand to be petted and brushed. Once Tortie showed she could trust people, the woman who had been caring for her knew she deserved to be in a loving home. GVAC was contacted to see if we could place her into foster care, which we did. Tortie has been in a foster home for a few weeks now and is getting used to her new environment. She is coming out and about more all the time, cuddling with foster mom on the couch and sleeping in her bed.

Tortie was a complete snuggle bunny when she was a stray, so we know that she will be a great pet for someone! Tortie loves to talk, she loves attention, and she absolutely loves to be petted and brushed. She has a great personality! We do think that she would be happiest in a home with no children or other pets. She is afraid of other cats as she always ran away and hid from any cat that came near her while she was living outside as a stray.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tortie, a Victoria Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Victoria, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Victoria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Victoria 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 Victoria 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 Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Victoria paves the way for another one to be saved.
