Otis's Story...
Otis and Allman (5-6 months) are as cute as it gets. They were rescued from a rural area where they were living near a chemical dump site. The rescuers thought they were blind but soon discovered they are able to see. And while their vision is somewhat limited these boys get along just fine. They are fearless kitties and despite their wobbly ways they use a litterbox like any other kitty, race to the top of their cat tree, and chase each other around the house. They love to play with wand toys and they especially love crinkle balls. And when they've worn each other out from play they quietly climb into your lap and snuggle. Otis is dark gray and Allman is a very distinctive lavender (you have to see his coloring in person to believe - a taupe with lavender/rose undertones). These special kitties are looking for love and have a lot of love to give in return.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Alexandria.

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