Gary's Story...
Gary, born approximately November 2009, is a small, sturdy gray tabby. He has a large head and large eyes compared to his widdle body (he weighs just nine pounds.) He is kind of goofy and 'clown-like.' Has a wonderful purr and comes to his humans often for attention and pets - very pushy about it! He is fine with other kitties (wants to play with them) and great with dogs, too!

Gary was adopted as a kitten and recently returned - due to job loss and 'he scratches all the time.' Well, Gary, who they called Ari (so now we call him AriGary) has a flea allergy! If he is not treated with flea preventative and gets a flea, he will scratch and scratch and scratch. He also developed a condition where his gums were all inflamed so his teeth were pulled (except for his canines.) So that is why he is marked 'special needs,' even though he has no trouble eating kibble and flea treatment prevents any scratching.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gary, a North Highlands 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 North Highlands, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in North Highlands.

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