Roddy's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.

Roddy's Story...

Roddy had a tough life until VOKRA rescued him. He was abused by his humans and ended up in a shelter where he was going to be euthanized because he was "unmanageable." VOKRA stepped in and rescued this adorable black-and-white boy, and he eventually ended up in his current foster home. At first he was a very scared boy...he would hiss and growl and any attempt to touch him would send him cowering in a corner. But in a few short weeks Roddy began to trust his fosters enough to let them pet him while he sat on his big scratching post (which he LOVES).

Now Roddy will cautiously come for pets if his fosters are still and quiet. He adores being scratched all over so much that he paces back and forth, guiding your hand to the part he'd like scratched next. His favorite places are probably his head, shoulders and the spot above his tail. He is an extremely soft, clean little guy. The thing his foster parents love most about him is his meow. You'd have to hear it to understand, but it is just adorable. Sometimes he sounds almost like a cooing bird. He is a very talkative boy so his forever family will have to be OK with that. He will have long conversations with you if you meow to him.

Roddy loves his food and will circle your legs as you bring him his dish - he will forgive you instantly if you trip over him (it has happened more than once). He is very good with his litter box, but occasionally with overzealous kicking some litter ends up on the floor next to the box. Above all, Roddy loves to play. He loves all kinds of toys and if there are no toys around, he will just create his own. He likes when his fosters play with him but is also happy to throw a toy around the house and chase it by himself. Because Roddy has so much energy, it would be best if he went to a forever home with a young playful cat he can be friends with. Roddy is so happy in his safe foster home that he acts more like a 1-year-old than a 5-year-old. It took him a while to warm up to his foster-kitty-sister, but once he did he wanted to play with her and tackle her.

Roddy is still skittish around people when he first meets them so his forever family will have to be very patient. But once he is used to them, he will be a fantastic family member. He does not like sudden movements toward him, or loud noises. He will not YET sit on a lap but will sit beside his foster and ask for attention. He has never bitten or scratched his fosters, only given a warning swat or kick when he has had enough petting. He does not like being picked up but with time he will probably tolerate it; for now he just tries to squirm out of your arms.

If there is no resident cat in Roddy's forever home, we recommend that he be adopted with a VOKRA buddy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roddy, a Vancouver 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 Vancouver, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Vancouver.

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