Rustie 13997-c's Story...
Sweet Rustie came to the SPCA with her two kittens when a concerned citizen found them out in the cold in Lansing. Rustie is a very shy girl who takes some time to warm up to you. But once she trusts you she becomes very sweet and affectionate. Rustie LOVES to have her cheeks and the base of her ears scratched HARD! She has gotten a little less skittish since arriving here, but will still need a quiet home without young children, a home where she can learn to appreciate an approaching hand as the instrument of petting and loving, where she can develop her purring skills. Rustie may always be skittish, and unappreciative of visitors, but she's a sweet girl just waiting for the right person to bring out the best in her. Might that be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rustie 13997-c, a Ithaca 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 Ithaca, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Ithaca.

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