Kate's Story...
I'm a one year old Brown Patched Tabby who was found as a stray. I absolutely love when the volunteers pet me, hold me, and give me kisses. I am very calm, but I do play from time to time. I don't particularly like the other kitties, so I wait patiently by the side while the volunteers pet the other kitties until they have time to pet me. It's not that I hate the other kitties, and I don't attack them or anything, but I would really rather be in a one-kitty home. People always see that I don't like the other cats, and they automatically assume that I am mean, when really I'm not. Maranda, one of the volunteers, holds me every day and gives me lots of kisses, and while we're snuggling, I look up at her with my big, beautiful eyes, and she tells me how good of a kitty I am, and how much she loves me. Sometimes, the other kitties stress me out, but she helps me relax by holding me so that I can't see the other kitties. Can you show me this kind of love? If you come meet me and maybe even hold me, I bet you'll see just how soft and sweet I am.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kate, a Springfield 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 Springfield, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Springfield.

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