Ila's Info...

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

Ila's Story...
Gentle, beautiful Ila gave birth to a litter of kittens in a closed-down corner bar in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, which caused quite a stir in the neighborhood as passersby looked through the windows to see kittens running around in the bar!

Ila would sit on the street corner each night and beg for enough food to support nursing her kittens. Almost a baby herself at one year old, she is shy at first but is very affectionate. She absolutely adores being petted and cuddled, and she loves, loves, loves to play. Ila can live by herself or with another cat, as she is very sweet and gentle.

Ila is spayed and vaccinated and FIV and FeLV negative. A brief application and modest adoption fee will be required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ila, a Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Brooklyn.

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