Faux Pas's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Faux Pas's Story...
Faux Pas, which is French for “social mistake,” we think is probably a play on words for “Four Paws.” This plus-size gal was picked up stray by a Richmond Animal Care and Control officer, but no one came looking for her, even though she has obviously been a pampered house cat for a long time.

True, she’s overweight, but with some weight control food and regular playtime, she should trim down steadily over the course of a year. She’s extremely smart, tidy, quiet and adores looking out of the window, but she definitely has a shy side while she considers her situation and grows to accept the new routine of her surroundings. While at the shelter about 3 weeks, she gained confidence and came forward to greet visitors, and she loved to lounge about royally and watch people come and go. We think she’d do well with a “safe place” from the beginning, as simple as her carrier or as fancy as you’d like to get – we also like the cute Velcro dog houses for $10 at CVS – they come in the perfect pink for this sweet girl! We have one we’d be glad to give you, still in the box!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Faux Pas, 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.
