Autumn's Story...
Beyonce was rescued by a kind person who spotted the pregnant cat standing outside in the cold, and on Feb 13 she gave birth to a litter of kittens. Her rescuer helped raise the kittens through their formative kitten days, and like their mother, they are all now ready to move on to their forever homes. Beyonce is between 3-5 years old, and her favorite activities include sitting by the window during the day and then curling up on the bed with her person at night. Austin, the little orange tabby and only male in the bunch, is determined to spend every waking hour in search of playtime and fun, and loves to be cuddled. Ashley is orange and white, and shows more of an independent streak in that she’s just as happy to keep herself entertained as she is to reach out to a person or one of her siblings. Autumn is Ashley’s doppelganger, and loves it when people give her attention. Chunky Monkey is the only medium haired girl of the bunch, and enjoys spending time making herself look as cute as possible. Collectively, this is a friendly, adventurous bunch of goofballs who revel in wrestling with each other, scampering about, playing and exploring. They have all demonstrated an affinity for empty cardboard boxes, and have yet to meet a feather wand that they didn't want to pounce upon. They are available singly, in pairs, or as a group; Beyonce would really like to find a home where she no longer has kittens climbing all over her (adult cats are fine, but she is SO over the kitten scene).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Autumn, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Alexandria paves the way for another one to be saved.
