SPOOKY's Story...
Spooky (Kiki)
Female Tortoiseshell
Date of Birth: 4/2010

The first thing Spooky did when she arrived at her new foster home was to let her foster mom know that her lovely coloring is more representative of a sunset against the receding dark clouds of an autumnal storm than an overused Hallows Eve reference. She refused to respond with even a blink of the eyes until she was coaxed into a conversation by using just the second syllable over and over. You can see from her one photo that she captured the mouse and attempted to edit her own profile while her foster mother was typing. As a compromise, it was decided that her name would still appear as originally bestowed but that her preferred nickname would accompany her story. In the another of her photo's you can see Kiki sharing this information with her brother Cheddar (who has most likely added this tidbit to his foster mom’s dossier).

Spooky (Ki-Ki) is a bit shy and skittish and would like to find a home with her brother Cheddar with whom she has formed a special bond. Although less outgoing than her littermates around strangers, patience is rewarded and she will happily sit by your side purring with satisfaction once she gets to know you. If she really takes to you, she will flip on her back for belly rubs. She also shares an affinity for dollhouses with her sister Peaches.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SPOOKY, a Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gaithersburg.

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