Marmalade's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Marmalade's Story...
MARMALADE will steal your heart with his quizzical, imploring look. And then he will enchant you with his gentle playfulness, his sweet look, and his smooth side-winder techniques begging for your attention.

Marmalade has come a long way. When he arrived he was traumatized so that he was afraid to be touched. Then he gradually adapted to being friendly whenever food was being offered, but still he had no real bond with humans. Now he searches for assurance that you really do want to be his best buddy and ally.

But don't let that innocent face fool you. Marmalade loves other cats with a passion -- a relic of his upbringing -- but he won't get along with just anyone. The cats he loves most are the dominant cats in the group. And what he really wants is to be boss. Once he feels he has been accepted into a family group around one person, he will try to become the boss of that group. He will challenge another dominant male. So placing him with other adult cats will require some judgment of personality types. A mix of male and female would probably be best. When his gal LVBug was adopted, he lost his best feline friend who used to lick his face and neck with love swipes. He would probably like to find that sort of feline companionship again.

Marmalade would find family life with children a bit challenging. He will adapt to new situations more slowly than seasoned socialites. But he will be your true love for life if you give him the chance. He has come too far now to settle for less!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marmalade, a Bedford 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 Bedford, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Bedford.

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