Bootsey's Story...
Bootsey Says
It's hard to believe I've had such a sad life. My mother and the human we lived with loved me so much. And I was such a beautiful kitten, the man I went to live with paid a lot of money for me. Honestly, I thought I was worth every penny, and so did he.

But after four happy years together, he got very sick and gave me to a friend. Then the friend gave me to another friend. That friend didn't like me (I didn't really like her either), and I never got enough to eat. She never brushed me either, and my beautiful fur got all matted and tangled. Mats hurt, and I was in a lot of pain.

One night, the woman I was living with decided she didn't want me around anymore, so she packed me into a carrier and left me in the drop off box at a "shelter" where they kill cats before they even have a chance to get adopted.

I was so hot in that carrier I could barely breathe, and I was so scarred. The people who work at the shelter shaved off all my matted fur and put me in a cage, where I was even more scared.

Someone rescued me, and I'm safe in the Howard County Cat Club's group home now. At first I was so scared here, I couldn't eat. But the volunteers and the other cats who live here are all being very nice to me, and I'm okay now. I'm just so sad.

If you're looking for a very nice older cat, won't you please consider giving me my fourth and finally forever home. That would make me so happy, and I promise I'd make you happy, too.

I love the Howard County Cat Club's outdoor enclosure, and I'd really like a home where I could go out on the deck with my human and maybe wander around the yard.

ps: One of the volunteers took this picture with her phone. A professional photographer is coming soon to take my picture, and I hope you'll come back and see how beautiful I am.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bootsey, a Columbia Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Columbia, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Columbia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbia 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 Columbia 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 Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbia paves the way for another one to be saved.
