Maus's Story...

Maus (German for Mouse, and who answers to the nickname Grayson) was rescued off the streets and taken in to a shelter, where he was found by Tails High. He had obviously been someone's pet, but had either become lost or abandoned. His brief stint on the streets hasn't bothered him though, and he is now an athletic teenager who alternates between playing and lounging. This dapper silver tabby with the little pink nose loves to roughhouse – he'd do great with a playmate or a family that understands his play style. He also loves to chase the laser pointer, and woe to any fly foolish enough to be where Maus can give chase. He's an assertive boy who will clearly let you know when he wants love and when he wants to be left alone to contemplate cat-things. But when he does want attention (which is most of the time) he will purr and lean in for scritches. In his foster home he has been staying with two other young cats and has been having an absolute blast playing with them. He would do best in a home with adults or older children, and a compatible playmate.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maus, a Alexandria Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
