Icicle's Story...
Sex: Male
Type: DSH - Black and White
Age Group: Youth
Special Status: Shy Cat
Date of Birth: August, 2009

Icicle was found over the winter almost frozen to death - he came to us with his brother who never made it. Icicle was likely a feral kitten who just got seperated too soon from his mom and subsequent shelter. He is a sweet boy but still very shy, will run away as you approach him but once you can get your hands on him, he settles down eventually - especially if you bring out treats or canned food, then he's all for that! Icicle will do best with someone who is patient and preferably has had experience with shyer cats. Does well with other cats too...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Icicle, a Strathmore 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 Strathmore, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Strathmore.

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