Bocelli's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Bocelli's Story...
Bocelli is cute and fun and affectionate. He's completely blind, but can find his way around just about anyplace with ease. He lived outside for at least a year and needs an indoor/outdoor home with a fenced yard. Please note: We will not put him in a "strictly indoor" home.

Purrsonal Information
Age: I've lost track of time, and I'm not sure. The vet says I'm three, but I don't think I'm that old!
Likes: Outdoors, people, cats, playing with toys that make noise so I can find them.
Dislikes Well, I certainly didn't like being in a cage in that scary shelter. I'm really glad to be out of there!
Health Concerns: Blind, chronic runny nose, hernia in stomach that may resolve in time.
Ideal Home: Indoor/outdoor with a fenced yard. I'd like to live with a human who loves to cuddle and another friendly indoor/outdoor cat.

Bocelli's Story
"I was born in my human family's back yard and lived both indoors and outdoors with my mother and litter mates. We were having lots of fun until my litter mates got sick and went away. The woman and kids who lived there loved us, but the man hated us. Really hated us. One day he stuffed me into a box, drove somewhere and tossed the box out of the car. When I managed to get out of the box, I discovered I was in the middle of a huge industrial park. It was busy and noisy, but I managed to make it my home, and humans always gave me food.

"Then one day, someone packed me into another box and took me to a shelter where they... well, never mind. It's too horrible to think about. I'm safe in the Howard County Cat Club's group home now, and I'm having a great time. The volunteers love me and let me ride around on their shoulders, and the other cats are great. I'm friends with all of them.

"I'm happy now and having a good time, but I'd love to have my own home and people again. If you're looking for a fun cat who will love you forever, I hope we can meet. Just contact the Howard County Cat Club to arrange an introduction."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bocelli, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Columbia.

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