Aurora's Story...

Est. DOB: August 31, 2012
Description: DSH Tortie
Gender: Female
Adoption Fee: $100.00

Aurora, named for Sleeping Beauty, is every bit the regal little princess that her namesake would suggest. Incredibly sweet, very gentle, and quiet little girl (her meow is a tiny little peep, and her purr is so quiet that it's almost indistinguishable), Aurora is very social and loves to be held and adored. She is sweetly playful and enjoys chasing the "cover monster" and furry rabbit-hair-covered mice, but her favorite play activity is wrestling with her brother, Prince Phillip, to whom she is very bonded (she will wander her foster home peeping in her tiny meow searching for him if she has lost track of him). Aurora adores the four labs (dogs) in her foster home and often seeks them out to cuddle with if a human lap isn't available. At night, Aurora loves to snuggle in to sleep under her foster mom's chin along with her brother, waking up every now and then to love on her foster mom's cheek and give little gentle kisses. What a beautiful, regal little girl -- all the way down to her gold "crown" on the top of her head and the gold "necklace" around her neck -- and she can't wait to find her "forever castle!" The Sleeping Beauty kittens were found by someone was bush-hogging their land. The kittens were only a few days old and were bottle fed.

Fully vetted: tested for FeLV/FIV (negative unless otherwise noted); treated for intestinal parasites, fleas, and ear mites; FVRCP+FeLV vaccinated (initial vaccination and booster); and rabies vaccinated; spayed/neutered; microchipped with Home Again microchips with rescue paid registration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Aurora, a Apex 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 Apex, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Apex.

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