Boris - 4-12-12's Story...
Boris is a year and a half old and can be seen by appointment. He likes avocado... 480-694-9998

Boris is brother to Bart, so one of two related litters of kittens rescued from under a trailer at 4-5 weeks old. They have all been handled since then and are relatively loving. He is a very nice, healthy and happy cat born about April 12, 2012.

Boris is neutered and current on distemper shots. He is sleek and beautiful, but black, so it's hard to get distinctive photographs of him. He was adopted for about a week this month, but the people who adopted him did not have a room separate from their other cats where he could be loved, fussed over and reassured, so he came back to the rescue house ... where he is all over me purring and laying in my lap and sleeping on my bed. He was not that attentive before the adoption.

Adult cats go through about three weeks of confusion when they move, even when with the same people from birth. For that reason, SOS Kitty offers a full return/refund policy for the first month. During that 3-4 weeks they need patience and reassurance, since every time they go to sleep, it's like "Groundhog Day" the movie. Once you get past that time, their natural GPS system resets to the new home and they usually make huge strides in socializing to their new home and family. Right now, Boris is an orphan. He has no idea what a wonderful life is possible outside an orphanage. He thinks this is as good as it gets!
Can you show him how wrong he is?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boris - 4-12-12, a Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Scottsdale.

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