Sally's Story...
Sally is a bundle of fun and sweetness all rolled into one. Whenever a new person walks in the house, Sally acts as "Main Greeter" and takes her job very seriously. Meowing a greeting as she goes, she trots right on up to visitors for some sniffing followed by pets and head scratches. She doesn't mind a little bit of a nose rub while you're at it, please!

Sally was born in June of 2009, so she is old enough to have perfect manners - she knows just where to scratch and exercise her claws, and has impeccable litter box habits - while still having lots of young kitty energy and playfulness. She likes to play with wand toys and will amuse herself with balls and other small toys when her people are busy. But when she's done and her playful energy is exhausted, she would like a nice lap to snuggle up on. TV, reading, or working on the computer are all acceptable, so long as your lap is horizontal and allows for her to curl up for a nap. At night she likes to sleep on the bed and we suspect that once she's in a home with fewer cats, she will take advantage of the extra space on the bed and become quite the snuggler.

Sally is living in a home with other cats and gets along with most of them just fine. She is slightly dominant, so we think she'd do best with a laid-back cat buddy, or as an only cat in her own home.

Sally has a sweet, soft meow and is very vocal. She is not shy about letting you know when she's hungry, wants playtime, or when she would like you to turn on the faucet in the sink so she can have a drink, please. Besides being Main Greeter, Sally's other job is Chief Inspector. She inspects the house regularly to make sure that all is in order, and is happy to give you a running report throughout her inspection. She makes sure to keep an eye on the outside, too, by checking out all the windows and keeping track of birds and squirrels in the area.

As you can see from her pictures, Sally has a very unique coat that is a mix of tabby and calico. Her coat is thick and soft, and she keeps herself very clean. She is also very well-behaved about having her nails clipped. Sally's adoption fee is $80.

Sally, like all ARCF cats for adoption, has been spayed, microchipped, is up to date on vaccines, and has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.

If you are interested in meeting Sally, please fill out the "I'm interested" form at our website, and our adoption coordinator will respond promptly. Please note that we place cats in the following counties only: Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Portland.

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