Paddy's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Paddy's Story...
Paddy is an 8 year-old Domestic Shorthair who came to us from the Humane Society of Central AZ, after his owner passed away and he had nowhere else to go. He is front declawed, FIV/FELV negative and already microchipped.

This big boy has some beautiful tabby markings with predominantly caramel colors. Paddy loves rubbing up against everyone who walks into the room, and he will stare up at you until you reach down to pet him. He spends most of his time in our office, and we think he might not realize that he is a cat. His personality as big as he is!

Paddy was diagnosed with diabetes, after we realized he was drinking a lot of water. Our vet recommended daily insulin shots, and Paddy is feeling wonderful again. Our vet informed us that this condition could go away over time on its own, as long as a proper diet is maintained. We have him on specialized food, and we are keeping our fingers crossed! For now, his condition is very easily managed, and Paddy makes the injections easy to give.

Paddy gets along with other cats but definitely not with dogs. Adopting an animal with a known medical condition isn’t for everyone. He needs that perfect someone who isn’t afraid of diabetes and is willing to go the extra mile for this amazing cat. If that’s you, please stop by to meet our resident Irishman; you won't be sorry!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Paddy, a Gilbert 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 Gilbert, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gilbert.

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