Bowie's Story...
Bowie & his brother Sting are very lucky to be alive. When they were about 2 weeks old their mother, who was a stray cat, abandoned her kittens. The kittens were very young, very hungry, and very sick. Sting & Bowie were the only survivors from the litter and when they made it into rescue they had bad eye and respiratory infections. They spent several weeks in foster care growing, getting strong, and becoming healthy. They are now ready to be adopted and would love to find a home together.

Here is what Bowie's foster parents said about him:

Bowie loves to play. Toy mice, balls, his shadow, and of course, the old favorite, a friendship bracelet??? Bowie leans towards independence but will still come running down the hall to see you when you get home, unless he gets trapped by a sunbeam in which case all bets are off. He started off smaller than his brother Sting so learned to use his brains early while fending off the playful tackles and tumbles his brother would throw at him but his healthy appetite has seen him surpass his brother’s weight too. Bowie will be best suited as an indoor-only cat as he has some vision impairment from his early youth. He has learned to adapt to the point that you would never know without being told. Bowie would love to stay with Sting but will do very well on his own as well and will likely adapt to a calm companion as well.

Please note that because Bowie had a respiratory infection at a young age before he could be vaccinated, he is likely a carrier of an upper-respiratory virus. At this time he seems very healthy, but it's possible that he may pass the virus on to other cats. Therefore, he should not go to a home with other cats (with the exception of his brother, Sting.)

If you'd like to learn more about Bowie & his brother Sting, please email us at victoriapets@gmail.com; they are currently in foster care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bowie, a Saanichton Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Saanichton, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Saanichton.

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