Zara's Story...
Hello good people. I'm Zara, which fits me beautifully. Zara has an English origin that means "Princess" and an Arabic origin that means "blossoming flower." Those are both me! I am a little bit like a princess in that I am exquisite looking and regal. Here at the shelter, though, I can't be regal because it is stressful here for me. Here it's like my flower petals have welted and I'm unhappy. But in your home, I know I will become a flower that will blossom and be happy--as my name implies.

I was found as a stray and brought to the MaxFund to find a new home. So we don't know anything about my background, but I know everyone is impressed that I was able to keep my gorgeous white fur looking so beautiful even being outside. I am a bit stressed out here by all of the other cats. They scare me and I get a bit hissy with them. I'm a sweet cat and enjoy attention. Sometimes I get overstimulated, though, when I get too many pets. I kind of have bad manners at that point and will swat at you. Oops. I suppose I should just pull away but I forget that and just react. I honestly don't know if I would get as overstimulated once I am in a home. Here at the shelter, I have to be alert to the other cats, staff, strangers and noises. So I can never relax and just enjoy the petting, and therefore, I get overstimulated. Please know that I do love attention and petting, and I am a good girl.

I also really enjoy laps. The truth is that I am full of love. I can't always receive the love I need here or express the love I have. But I've shown volunteers enough of the depth of my love that they are confident I will be even better at home.

So how about it? Will you come get me so I can turn into a blossoming flower at your house? Like other beautiful flowers, I'm sure I'll add warmth, happiness and color to your home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zara, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Denver.

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