Autumn's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Autumn's Story...
Autumn (less than 1 year old) was found, along with several other cats and a group of kittens, in a recently vacated house. While at first extremely shy, she has slowly been learning to trust people, and daily shows signs of improvement. She will often hide but can be lured out of hiding by the infamous little red dot (aka laser pointer), and will happily chase it around. After a play session she will cautiously approach and ask to be petted. All shyness evaporates at feeding time though, and she will happily relax as you pet her while she eats. Autumn will be a wonderful companion for someone who has the patience and willingness to work with her to develop that special relationship.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Autumn, a Alexandria Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Alexandria, or seeking a Calico 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 Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Alexandria paves the way for another one to be saved.
