Elaine's Info...

Elaine's Story...
Elaine came to us with her two kittens from one of the local shelters. She was a great mom and now it's her turn to be cared for. Elaine's a very sweet and social girl who loves to be held. Elaine will sleep in bed next to you, and purr in a second. She has been fine with the other cats at her foster home so we expect it shouldn't take her very much time to get comfortable with another cat at her new home. Elaine will need to be brushed on a regular basis to prevent problematic hairballs and painful mats from forming.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elaine, 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.
