I am already neutered, housetrained, and good with cats.

Fred Astaire's Story...

I am the handsome, talented Fred Astaire - ready to break into a dance move at any moment! I was first spotted in the neighbourhood - hanging around various porches. At first, it was thought that I had a home, and was just hanging out. I am thin, but kept my tuxedo shiny and glossy, and am quite meticulous with my appearance. However, it soon became apparent as I ran and cowered when approached, that I was homeless and had nowhere to go. My rescuer was putting food out for another homeless cat, when I gratefully found the supply. I kept coming by for the food more and more frequently, as the weather got colder and colder... So, plans were made to bring me inside, however I took my time! I was eventually brought in (after too long of a wait for my Ginger Rogers who was impatiently awaiting my arrival), and taken to the vet. I was declared a healthy, disease-free one year old male. I tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. I am now neutered and vaccinated. After the vet's, I was taken to my foster home, where Ginger was waiting for me. However, I still had not met Ginger and was pretty unhappy about my ordeal at the vet's. It sure scared me - being poked and prodded by people that were unknown to me. So I kept to myself in my foster home, and hissed and growled if anyone got too close. I wasn't ready for a repeat of the poking and prodding. Eventually I understood that my foster was trying to help me, so I no longer hissed at her - unless she came in too quickly and scared me. I now like sniffing her fingers and allow her to give me brief pats - when bribed with food. However, finding my Ginger was wonderful for me. He understood what I was going through, since the same thing had happened to him! One day I perched on the window ledge beside him and that was it - we became a tight team. Ginger looks up to me and I protect him. (Although Ginger is still growing, so he could actually end up bigger than me!) We would love to be adopted together - where we could dazzle you with our dance moves! Who would like to give us a chance at a permanent home? We would need patient caregivers, who understand that it will take me a long time (if ever) to become a cuddly lap kitty with you. For now, only Ginger is the recipient of my affection!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fred Astaire, a Ottawa 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 Ottawa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Ottawa.

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