Tessa's Info...

Tessa's Story...
Beautiful Tina was found wandering around after having babies outside. After being trapped, it was discovered that she was not feral at all. Just scared. Unfortunately, we were only able to find 1 of her babies as the other had disappeared. So sad. Another reason for having your pets spayed or neutered. But, on the bright side, Tina and her baby Teddy will soon be ready for adoption. She is such a sweet girl and very loving. She needs a nice, warm inside home where she can feel safe to show her true self. She was so scared and lonely outside especially with babies. UPDATE: Tina is doing fantastic. She has adjusted to life inside so well we believe she must have been an indoor cat to start. She loves, loves eating and is eager to get treats! She will follow you around and talk with you the whole time if you have some goodies for her. She has a beautiful long coat and long tail. She gets along with other cats but sometimes the other cats don't seem to care for her. She is not aggressive but is nervous around people. Once she becomes familiar with a routine and her home she begins to mellow out. We would love to find a great home for her where she can live safely inside with someone who loves her. She has not proven to be a furniture scratcher either. However, Tessa needs an experienced family willing to give her an extended time to become comfortable with them as well as have the experience to deal with a cat that is going to hide, run, etc., from them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessa, a Chesterfield Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Chesterfield, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Chesterfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chesterfield 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 Chesterfield 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chesterfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
