Lucy's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Lucy's Story...
Lucy was stranded outside a big office building on Fort Lee, trying desperately to get in to look for food, when we saved her. Unbeknownst to us, she had apparently eaten rocks or other foreign material, so when the vet checked her out, it seemed she had cancer and probably should be euthanized. But we thought that there might be a chance part of her liver could be removed, or at least checked out carefully when she was spayed, so we gave her time to get healthy. Turns out she was perfectly fine, and now is spayed and has all her shots and is ready for a forever home. Her buddy here has been Creamy, but Creamy is so big and Lucy's so little that she usually gets mad at him for shoving her around and squashing her! She's sweet and playful, but be careful when you open a can of food: She becomes a ravenous tiger and will knock the can right out of your hand if you're not careful! Apparently it will take her a long time to forget how hungry she was when she was lost.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, 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.
