Skittles's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Skittles's Story...
Hi! My name is Skittles and I am King of the Head Butts. It's my way of saying, "I love you." I will head butt your hand, leg, chair - anything really. It's just a silly part of my personality. I love having my head scratched and will melt to the floor, purring away. I'm a big, handsome tom cat who weighs 11 lbs. I am neutered, vaccinated and ready to go. I love to watch the great outdoors through the window. I have a very laid back and mellow character. I'm a chill cat who just wants someone to love me and feed me. I use a litterbox like a good cat too, so please give me a chance. I also need a foster care home if you're not quite ready to adopt, so please apply today. Adoption fee: $60 and includes testing, deworming, vaccinations and neuter.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skittles, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Troy.

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