Holmes's Story...
Hi, my name is Holmes and I was born in 2004 (approximation).

I was found as a stray and had an amazing home for a long time, but unfortunately I had to be rehomed because my owner wasn't able to care for me any longer. I had suffered an accident when I was young, so I had a lot of teeth pulled and I have something called a fistula that goes from the roof of my mouth up to my nasal passage. My old owners say I have an 'Elvis' sneer. If I went to a shelter, they'd probably euthanize me, so Carol took me in because I am a big, handsome, friendly boy.

I love love LOVE catnip and even though I am an older cat, I am still very playful and fun-loving. I love people and will almost always come up for attention if you are willing to give it. Despite my missing teeth and mouth issues, I do very well and don't need a lot of extra care, maybe just wet food now and then to make sure I'm getting enough to eat. You can't miss me when I come into the room...I am a BIG boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Holmes, a Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Grand Rapids.

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