Dewey's Story...
I’m Dewey, brother of Hewey. You have to look very closely to be able to tell us twins apart – and I’ll give you a hint. Don’t look at our orange and white, round faces – we have such similar facial markings that you can’t use that to tell us apart. Don’t look at our body size and shape – we’re exact replicas in size and color. The secret is in the paws. In the paws, you say? Yes, look at the toes, specifically – ah, someone has a few extra toes. That’s me, Dewey – I’m what you call a polydactyl. Some people call them “Hemingway cats” because author Ernest Hemingway had a fancy for us extra-toed cuties. Hewey and I had a home, but the county needed to step in and find us another place. After a stint at the county shelter, we came here to FOHA and the FOHA communal cattery. Here we get to laze the day away while we await a new forever home. Not a bad gig, but I sure would like to find this “forever home” everyone keeps talking about. It’s where I’m assured I’ll get lots of snuggles, playtime, and love. I may even get to cuddle up with a special someone on the couch or the bed – at least that’s what I’m told. I sure hope I find that “forever home” soon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dewey, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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