Lieutenant Dan's Story...

Dan is a gorgeous red classic tabby male born in May 2009.  He's a very special cat who needs a special home.  Dan had a very rough start to life.  Just a baby he was found on the side of the road after being hit by a car.  His rear legs were paralyzed.  X-rays showed a fracture of the spine but with much hope and prayer Dan was given a chance to heal.  While his spirit healed and he became a wonderful kitten loved by all he didn't make much progress in the walking department.  After many failed attempts at trying in vain to restore his ability to walk (acupucture, herbs, amputation of the leg without feeling, physcial therapy) it was decided that Lieutenant Dan would likely not walk.  While this wasn't a problem for anyone including Dan who gets around just fine scooting along the bathroom problems were.  See Dan can't go to a litter box and while he has much better control these days and raw diet has made stool clean up a sinch this is a problem for most adopters.  So Dan needs a patient caregive who doesn't mind a little extra clean up.  He does best on tile floors that are easily cleaned.  He gets around well and isn't in any pain.  He is very fast if he doesn't want you or the dogs to catch him.  As for his personality you won't meet a nicer guy.  His zest for life is heartwarming and everyone that meets him falls in love.

So if you think you might be that special one please contact to meet Dan, no doubt he'll steal your heart.  Also happy to answer any questions.       

All cats and kittens have been vet checked, tested for feline leukmia and FIV, given age appropriate vaccines, spayed/netuered and are free of internal and external parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lieutenant Dan, a Cocoa 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 Cocoa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Cocoa.

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