Grover's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Grover's Story...
Grover is a sweet young man who was hanging out in the area of one of our volunteers' houses. The first night she spotted him, he meowed at her but he was too timid to eat the food she gave him while she was there. The next day, Grover heard her outside and came running with a loud and long meow and some leg rubs! Each day after, he would greet her every time she left or returned home, and came running as soon as he heard her call his name.

This guy is a gentle giant. He is a large cat but not fat. His age is estimated at 3 years, so he's been used to the wild life for some time now. Though he spent spent his early years on the street, he has adjusted nicely to the home life. He loves to sun himself in the window, and watch the birds at the bird feeder. If you are not looking for a needy cat, but rather an independent kitty who will seek you out for love and affection, Grover is your guy. He seems to like other cats and was fine with the preschool aged little girl he met.

Grover is special needs in that he tested positive for FIV. This virus is not a death sentence. In fact, Grover can expect to live a fine life indoors. If he were to catch a cold, it might take him a little longer to recover, but other than that, he can like a "normal" kitty. FIV is not easily transferable to other cats; it would take something like a bite wound. It's also important to note, that FIV is not transferable to humans!

Grover is an avid cardboard scratcher box surfer. He loves to run down the hallway and jump on his scratcher box and "surfs" across the hardwood floor. Grover is a very adaptable character who is looking for a home to call his own forever.

Grover would be happy for the chance to love a family and to live a comfortable life now that he's off the streets. Will you take him home and give this guy the attention and affection that he desires and deserves?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Grover, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Worcester.

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