I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Harlequin's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Harlequin's Story...
Forget Me Not recently took in 5 mother cats with a combined total of 16 kittens, all from one household where one unspayed kitty had some daughters, and they had some kittens, and so on, and so on.... Harlequin and her "H" siblings were born about 8/19/12, and get along well with each other, and with kittens in the "F" and "G" litters.

These kittens were well socialized by the children in the home from which they originated, and are playful, curious, and affectionate. They should do well in pretty much any sort of home, from indoor-only with one human, to indoor-outdoor with a 15-member family.

We'd love to see all these kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair, but do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome:

Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies."

We've included a video featuring these kittens from 10/2/12 - Harlequin's beautiful dilute calico coat is easy to spot; she is also often found cuddled up with Galahad, as in the photo above:

All kittens will arrive spayed/neutered, wormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fee for Harlequin is suggested minimum $58 (more gratefully accepted); discount fee $98 for pair kitten adoptions! All kittens are placed with a 3-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harlequin, a Republic Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Republic, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Republic.

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