Screechy's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Screechy's Story...
Screechy is a friendly, loving, playful 6-year-old kitty looking for a forever home. He was dumped at a shelter in rural Virginia with his dog friend. The dog got adopted, but they left poor Screechy behind. He was very sick and nothing but skin and bones. The Howard County Cat Club decided to give this poor boy a chance and took him in. He immediately went to the vet where he was diagnosed with diabetes. He currently receives 1 unit of insulin twice a day and is on an all wet-food diet. We are working toward getting him off insulin and into remission. Even so, he’s at a healthy weight now, his coat is shiny and full, and he has that spark for life in his eye once again.

Screechy is waiting for that special someone to come into his life and take care of him. He would be so grateful if you could open your heart and home to a kitty in need. He promises to love you, snuggle with you, and entertain you every day. He would love to have some access to the outdoors, even if it’s a screened in patio room or some time out in the backyard. Once Screechy gets adopted, we’ll be able to save another cat in need. Screechy’s wish is for a new home and for other kitties to be saved. Won’t you be the one to grant him his wish?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Screechy, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Columbia.

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