Sonny's Story...
Sonny is a Domestic Shorthair - Orange & White Tabby Mix. He was rescued in Moorestown, NJ from a litter of 7 siblings. Animal Control was called to trap kittens only 3 weeks old whose mother was a neighborhood stray cat. With my quick intervention at the shelter, I was able to retrieve 4 of them, while a neighbor found two in her yard and called me. Two days later, the last one (Sonny) was found and I had all 7 together. They were bottle fed until they learned to eat on their own and were litter trained. Three were put in foster care with a human mommy to give them attention and love individually. The smallest girl of the litter died while still bottle feeding. Three of the kittens were returned to the shelter at an adoptable age but were euthenized without my knowledge. I vowed never to return any to the shelter again. His other little sister was adopted and then his bigger brother. Sonny sustained an eye injury the night after being neutered in the cage together with his brother playing instead of resting. My veterinarian tried everything to save Sonny's eye, from antibiotics to his own blood used as a serum. Sonny seemed to be responding well until the pressure in his eye built up causing his eyeball to get enlarged. He was on medication and eye drops to bring the pressure down and save his eye from being removed in surgery. On Aug. 21, 2013 Sonny's condition changed. His eye became red and the pressure built up again. This time is was painful and a cataract formed over his eye because the lens had floated behind the eye. After vet visits and medication, the decision was made to remove his eye to make him comfortable. On Sept. 10th, Sonny went into surgery to remove his left eye. Thanks to the Paw it 4ward Foundation, the charges were paid for at the vet. Sonny is doing great, getting around and hanging with the cats here at the rescue.
He needs a loving home and someone to play with. At night he cuddles up in bed and purrs to sleep. Sonny's favorite thing is chasing his tail and catching it.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sonny, a Medford 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 Medford, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Medford.

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