Melvin's Info...

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

Melvin's Story...
Hi I'm Melvin, which is an Irish name meaning "chief." Ha! I wish I were a chief. Then I wouldn't be here at the shelter waiting for a new home. But I am and like a true chief, I remain hopeful for my future. I am middle age, as any good chief should be. I am wise and knowing but still playful and open to new possibilities.

I was brought to the MaxFund after a woman in Bennett said I was being mistreated by people. She got me from "homeless people" and she kept me for three days. She brought me here to find a new home with my brother, Shy Boy. He has already been adopted so now I am alone. Hopefully that is not for long. For the three days that the woman had me, she said I liked to sleep in a cat bed and enjoyed scratching posts, lasers and strings. I also liked cat nip.

Here at the MaxFund, I have been a bit shy. I tend to hang out in the cat condo in a cubby hole. But I enjoy petting. I especially enjoy having my head stroked. That is relaxing for me and I hope for you. Try doing it on a stressed friend sometime to see what I mean. It is very soothing. Anyway, getting back to me. I am a quiet and gentle cat. But at the same time, I am friendly and loving. What I want most in the world is to live in a warm home (not on the streets anymore) with a family or person who thinks I'm wonderful. Some cat nip, a comfy cat bed or couch, string toys and sunshine would round out heaven for me. Please come meet me to see how special I am.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melvin, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Denver.

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