Anika's Info...

Anika's Story...
ANIKA arrived at the back door crying with hunger, very emaciated, and very pregnant. Anika was promptly taken to the vet who said Anika would be giving birth within days. Not more than a tiny kitten herself at 6mos, Anika was made comfortable in her own room.

She gave birth to five kittens during the night of June 22. Sadly, two were born dead, but Anika was still trying to nurse them and keep them warm. Her first litter and she was a great mom! Soon after, the remaining kittens passed away. Nothing we could do helped save them. Poor Anika desperately tried to feed and keep them all warm -- she didn't understand. It was heartbreaking, and Anika was then depressed for several weeks, not leaving the area where she gave birth. Her caretaker brought food and water to her and made sure she stayed nourished and got her health back.

Fortunately, Anika has responded to love and care and, today, she is healthy and behaving like the kitten she is -- playing, jumping, running after her toys, and LOTS of purring and lap-sitting! So, Anika now desparately needs her own home. Can you please find it in your heart to give this brave, wonderful girl the loving home she so rightfully deserves after her rough start in life? She will make a wonderful, loving companion for life!

Anika will be spayed and fully vetted prior to adoption. NOTE: This is a COURTESY POSTING. Please contact Elissa@taviandfriends.org for more information

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Anika, a Brooklyn Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
