Shelby's Story...
Shelby is a male Ragamuffin/Russian Blue mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, FIV/FeLV negative and was born about 6/22/07. Shelby's mom loved him and very much, but her ENT doctor told the mom the reason she kept getting sick was because she was allergic to cat dander so she had to find Shelby a new home. Shelby originally got his name because, he was originally a stray who started to plump up. So Shelby was taken to the vet because it was thought she may have kittens, well the vet felt her tummy and set her up to be spayed, well imagine the surprise when Shelby was turned upside down the she was a he, but the name stuck. Shelby is a mild mannered guy who is affectionate and loves to be held and petted. If you quickly walk towards him he'll jump up and run off, but will quickly return to be loved on. Shelby's left ear lays down flat, which makes him super cute.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Baton Rouge Russian Blue cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Russian Blue for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Russian Blue cat from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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 Russian Blue breeders who help with Russian Blue rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
