BOSCO's Story...
Good evening....my name is Bosco and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and my hopes of oneday becoming part of a very loving family. You see I arrived at this little rescue called PAWS Brave Hearts, because many of us who have been brought through these doors have endured very difficult times where we were discarded and left to fend for ourselves and no one to care for us. They call us Brave Hearts because we never gave up, we continued to fight to survive until someone noticed and brought us here to PAWS, where there is an abundance of love, nurturing, patience, and understanding. I am a Brave Heart because I was found as a stray, left uncared for, left unneutered, unvaccinated, and unfed and through this all someone finally took notice and could see I needed help and I wasn't giving up. Because I was left uncared for, I contracted FELV (Feline Leukemia), most likely from a cat fight or from some friendly grooming where another cat who was infected had bitten me or groomed me, passing the disease to me. Have no worries though, don't let this disease deter you from adopting me or lead you to believe this is an immediate death sentence. Cats like me with Feline Leukemia can lead perfectly contented happy lives for many years as long as we get the care we need. There are just a few requirements that need to be met before I just pack up my bags and move right in. But still these are no biggie. First I need to be a strictly indoor cat so I don't pass this disease onto any other unvaccinated cats out there, next if there are any other resident cats in the home they will need to be vaccinated for Feline Leukemia and this still should be discussed with your vet before bringing a positive kittie like myself home.. Yes there is a vaccine out there for Feline Leukemia and this disease can be prevented. Better yet if you already have a home with other FELV positive kitties then there are no worries! Or I could become your one and only! Either way there a ways I can become a part or your life. Here are a couple of great aritcles to better help you understand about FELV (http://www.bestfriends.org/allthegoodnews/specialfeatures/leukemia1.cfm) and (http://www.bestfriends.org/theanimals/pdfs/cats/catfelv.pdf).

Now enough about this disease, because I don't want FELV to define who I am. I am a young male DLH tuxedo boy who has boundless amounts of love to give and a personality that could light up your day. I am boy who loves to be cradled and held. A hug, a squeeze, a kiss, anything, and I will be enternally grateful you chose me as your new life long companion. I am very curious and interactive and really enjoy a good game of laser light or feather chase. I can be a bit under foot as I do like to follow you and check out what is going on. I don't want to miss anything! I can be your forever tag along! I am also a believer and I believe there is a family out there for me. I know it!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BOSCO, a Calais Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Calais, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Calais.

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