Miranda's Info...

Miranda's Story...
Marcus and Miranda are a lovely pair that we estimate to be about four years old. If you are looking for kitties that won't be climbing the drapes, but still like to have a little fun, they could be a perfect match for you. They can often be found snuggled together or individually in their kitty beds (Hint: a plain old cardboard box with a blanket tucked inside will score you major points with these two).


There is no doubt that these two will make you smile when you come home at the end of the day. When they hear you come in the door, both will be up and ready for a little attention. Scratches on the chin....mmmmm. Behind the ears......ahhhhhhh. These two turn to Jell-O in your lap when it comes to kitty massage time. It might sound like they just like to lounge around, but Marcus and Miranda both have a frisky side. Marcus will chase the laser light endlessly and one of Miranda's favorite activities is playing with the feather wand while perched in the tube of her cat tower.


Marcus and Miranda both had hard lives living on the street as strays, and both are very happy to have been given the chance to live the rest of their lives in a warm, comfy home with plenty of food. Oh, we almost forgot to mention food. These two must be in a home where portion control will be maintained. They are currently on a weight control plan and it is important that this continues throughout their lives so that they remain healthy and avoid the risks of obesity.


We estimate that Marcus and Miranda are about four years old. They are not siblings, but have become friends while in their foster home and would like to stay together for life. They have both been fixed and are up to date on their vaccines so they are ready to move in and start brightening up their permanent home


Miranda and Marcus, like all ARCF cats for adoption, have been spayed and neutered, microchipped, are up to date on vaccines, and have tested negative for FeLV and FIV.


If you are interested in meeting Marcus and Miranda, please fill out the "I'm interested" form at our website, and our adoption coordinator will respond promptly. Please note that we place cats in the following counties only: Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Miranda, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Portland.

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