Sid's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Sid's Story...
Over a decade ago, Sid was abandoned by his owner when she moved. Still intact, he was left outdoors to fend for himself and to fight for the ladies. As a result, Sid now tests FIV+, but he is otherwise a very healthy old man and a true patriarch of his street block. His fathering days ended about 4 years ago when a neighbor became TNR certified and targeted Sid for neutering.

Sid is incredibly shy, but also incredibly sweet. He warms up the most before and after a meal, emitting the loudest purr of any cat we've handled! He's slowly remembering that he might actually like sitting in laps for petting sessions.

We attempted to place Sid in a foster home by himself, but his spirits tanked, so we reunited him with his street pal, Buddy, who had been brought indoors while Sid was away, and the two have been inseparable since. They are so sweet together and even get jealous if one receives more human attention than the other!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sid, a Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Brooklyn.

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