I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Gumbo, black & grey's Story...
Since we never rescued an American Curl before, we read up on them. They are a US breed as of 1983 established in southern California. They are 7-11 pounds as adults (small cats). One of Gumbo's ears is show quality (curl), the other not quite. They are famous for excellent health and the need for human relationships. They come in all colors. Gumbo's coat reminds me of a terrier's but softer.
Gumbo had been abandoned but regularly visited a lady who cannot keep him because of her health. He laid beside her and her neighbor on their porch and loved to have his tummy rubbed.
Gumbo loves Fancy Feast and eating in general. He has a good voice but not a problem voice. He is healthy, neutered, vaccinated for distemper, (5/6) and tested negative for FeLV and FIV. He's about a year old (3/21/12).
Gumbo is black with grey markings and weighs about nine pounds. He had been abandoned for a while when brought to the rescue, so was not very friendly. Now I can't keep him out of my lap and he likes to walk with me as I do chores. He thinks he likes asparagus, too.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gumbo, black & grey, a Scottsdale American Curl cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Curl for sale in Scottsdale, or seeking a American Curl cat from a breeder in Scottsdale.

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