Sheba's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sheba's Story...
Sheba (2 years old) was rescued in SE DC and came to us with her two 3-week-old babies. She was very thin and extremely cautious but would purr when her foster mom got close so we determined she had been someone’s pet who was lost or abandoned and needed to learn to trust humans again. She loves being picked up and held by her foster mom. She purrs as soon as her feet leave the floor, and she nuzzles her head under her foster mom’s chin. You may even get lucky and get a little kiss! Sheba loves to have her belly rubbed and will flop down so it can be done. She’s having a great time playing and running with her foster siblings and she can be found at times grooming one of the others. Even though not evident in her photos, she has striking, beautiful bright green eyes that stand out against her rich, velvety black coat. Sheba may be happy as your one and only special girl but she would also like to have a companion to run and play with. While she’s come a very long way, we don’t think she’d be very comfortable in house full of active children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheba, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Alexandria.

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