Grandpa's Story...
Meet Grandpa and Harper. These two sweethearts were in terrible condition when they were found.

When they were first brought to our rescue, they were very much on guard. They wanted to trust people, but weren't sure. We were able to obtain some information regarding their past.

It was obvious by their personalities that they lived in a loving home for years, their owner became ill, and sadly passed away. The house was cleared out but they were abandoned and left to fend for themselves for months until a neighbor discovered them wondering.

Over time, Grandpa approx. 8-10 yrs old, lost most of his teeth due to malnutrition and going into survival mode and eating whatever he could find which would include garbage and rocks. He also had a really tight collar around his neck which was removed just in time before it became imbedded. He still has signs of the tight collar that was around his neck, but is doing well.

Sweet Harper, approx. 6 years old. She was so thin, barely hanging onto life and could barely walk. Her health was a great concern. We rushed her to our Veterinarian right away. For a while, she was given fluids and had to be forced fed, she was too weak to eat on her own. She was always good about letting us poke her and stuff pills down her throat. With lots of TLC she is recovering nicely and putting on weight.

Since these two have been through so much and have stuck together, they have a very strong bond and will need to be placed in a home together. They constantly butt their heads against each other and Harper sticks to Grandpa like glue, she is always by his side. We have discovered that their bond is so strong, Harper stops eating when Grandpa is separated from her.

If you are looking for a loving bonded pair, please consider these two. They are both very calm and affectionate. They get along great with other cats.

They are both UTD on vaccines, FELV tested neg. and given flea treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Grandpa, a Sacramento 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 Sacramento, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Sacramento.

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