Aster's Story...

Aster was transferred to Katie’s Place from another rescue in September of 2013. Aster is a senior girl of about 10 years. She had a home at some point where she lived with two other cats and three small dogs. This home proved to be too overwhelming for Aster and she spent most of her time hiding under a bed. Her stress led her to pee outside her box. She was returned and adopted out again into a home with only one small dog. She did great in that home and there was no issues with hiding or peeing inappropriately. Unfortunately it turned out that the person who adopted her was allergic to cats and sweet Aster was returned once again. This is when she came to us. Aster isn’t doing great in a shelter setting. She is withdrawn and depressed. Her life hasn’t been stable for quite some time and she desperately needs a forever home that will make her feel safe and loved. Aster would probably do well in a quite home with a small dog, or perhaps one other cat. It would probably be best if she was in a home with no small children. Aster is hyperthyroid and requires medication once a day but she is very easy to medicate. We are hoping Aster does not spend her final years in a shelter where she gets little peace and quiet. Aster is very loving and soaks up any attention that is given to her. You can see her light up when you start petting her, and the purring starts almost immediately. Please ask about a permanent foster situation for this sad girl.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Aster, a Maple Ridge 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 Maple Ridge, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Maple Ridge.

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