Neil's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Neil's Story...
Neil was a perfect orange tabby kitten, full of curiosity, but he did battle with a very live electric cord splice and is just now proving to the veterinarians that his will to survive is stronger than his injuries. He was born about April 15, 2013, so is just over six months old.

His most obvious injury is to his mouth. His baby canines appear to have fused to the bone, so he has two canines on each top side. Some teeth are missing, as is the part of his lips behind the canines on the left side of his face. His forelegs were burned and he may have some dewclaw deformities. The roof of his mouth was completely burned away, but has very slowly healed and there are now only two small "fistulae." His biggest permanent problem is half his tongue was burned off.

Somehow, Neil is grooming himself and drinking water. (It's possible the other kittens are grooming him, too.) It is hard for him to clean his plate of wet food, but he is growing normally. He can't help drooling sometimes, but that seems to be improving, too. He will need more grooming assistance as he gets older than a normal shorthaired cat, but not bad.

Call Susanne at 480-694-9998 if you might like to meet Neil and consider him a permanent member of your family. He is a really wonderful young cat and deserves as good a life as any other.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Neil, a Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Scottsdale.

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