Barney's Story...
Barney: I’m a buff male tabby, 4 years old. I was found thin and very hungry with a wound at the end of my tail wandering in an apartment complex. I am friendly, came right up to a nice person who rescued me. I have all of my immunizations, am neutered and my tail wound is well healed. I gets along with my older cat roomates but wil “bug” a cat if I think I can get away with it. I eats mostly dry food with a small canned treat daily. I loves to lounge, especially in high places (like on top of my TV cupboard). I love to role over on my back with all 4 legs in the air (quite a picture). I get spurts of interest in a piece of dry cat food & bats it all over the kitchen floor. I’m also into colored pipe cleaners and fuzzy mice. I’m sweet natured, not aggressive. I may be timid in new situations. It didn’t take me too long to warm up to my current foster home though.

Please call CARE @ (804) 288-9797 for Kathryn’s bodacious boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Richmond.

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