Orange Cat's Story...
Orange Cat is a 2-year-old female orange tabby with a beautiful, plush coat and a raspy meow like a Siamese. She has such a sad story, you can't make this stuff up. Her elderly owner died, and she was abandoned to the streets -- still not spayed. A sweet 102-year-old lady and lifelong cat lover took her in, and Orange Cat was spayed and totally vetted. The lady and her son planned to keep OC indoors for a day or two after the spay, but OC would have none of that: She never went outside again. The family has photos of Orange Cat sitting on the pillow next to her owner's head when her health began to fail, and then sadly, she passed away in November just before her 104th birthday. The household cats don't like OC and chased her mercilessly, and she was kept in one room. The son said when he'd open that room, OC would run from one room to the next, as if terrified of the other cats. But I thought to myself, she was looking for her owner ... Orange Cat is loving and sweet, and loves to be petted and get head kisses -- even from the vet! She would do best in a calm home, and she hasn't been around children at all. She does not like other cats, and no wonder. Would you have the forever home this girl deserves after going through so much loss?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Orange Cat, a Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chesapeake.

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