Alani's Story...
Alani says, "Who, me? Dart out every open door as if my life depended on it? You have me confused with someone else." We rescued Alani back in the summer from a life on the streets. ( Read below for more about Alani's story) Most cats are happy to be brought inside where they have creature comforts. Not our girl Alani. Since she has an insatiable need to be one with nature, we would like to find her an indoor/outdoor home. A nice home where she is kept inside at night and when she likes, but also allowed outdoors under supervision. We also would ask that she always wear a collar with ID and get a microchip. Our goal is to place cats in homes where they will be happiest, not to blindly enforce an "indoor only" rule. Alani is incredibly spunky and full of life. She likes other cats and will make a purrfect companion! Please contact us if you could provide a good home for Alani!

Alani followed me for several days in a row while I delivered mail on her street. I noticed she always hung around the same house. When I asked if it was their cat, the woman said it was her son's cat and he had been looking to "get rid of it". She was born in their yard and they took her in as a small kitten and even bottle fed her. But once the cuteness wore off they banished her to the outdoors. I noticed there was a food bowl on the porch but it was always empty. I told her I'd be back after work to get her, and there she was waiting on the front steps. I didn't have a carrier with me so she was loose in my car. As soon as we drove away I heard ravenous crunching in the backseat. She found the bag of cat food I carry. It sounded like her first meal in days if not weeks. Now she is waiting for someone to adopt her.

All of our kittens are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated against Distemper, and treated for fleas and other parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alani, a Byron Center 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 Byron Center, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Byron Center.

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