Rupert's Story...
Rupert is a very easygoing kitten who loves to be petted. He also enjoys cuddling with other cats. Rupert is an adorable kitten who is affected by Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), which means his cerebellum is underdeveloped. Most likely, his momma had distemper when she was pregnant with him and it affected his growth. For kitties with CH, it can be challenging to walk, eat, or use a litter box; however, Rupert, like many CH kitties, has learned to do all of these things very well, working around his disability. He likes to run and play with other cats and toys. DOB September 2012

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rupert, a St. Louis Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in St. Louis.

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