Zucca's Info...

I am a special needs pet, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Zucca's Story...
This pretty girl is Zucca (Italian for pumpkin). A concerned citizen noticed a kitty on his property that was walking with difficulty. He humanely trapped Zucca and brought her to one of Tenth Life's veterinarians! Zucca was healthy, but missing her entire back left foot. It appears that Zucca was injured and lost her foot and it healed. She is scared, but likes to be held. When she is loose in a room, she hides. Zucca needs a bit more time to learn that humans and dogs are not going to harm her. Zucca is learning to cope very well with her missing foot. She spends time snuggling with her three foster sisters and brothers. They are helping her to learn that humans are GOOD! approx DOB August 2013

Please note: Kittens in Pairs - Babies six months and younger NEED a buddy – either a second kitten adopted at the same time, or a resident cat. The reason behind this is that kittens get lonely, bored, and destructive, and no one wants that! Having a feline buddy helps diminish unwanted behaviors from kittens who are bored. Additionally, your kitten will grow up to be a happier, better socialized, and more well-adjusted adult cat. We require kittens to be adopted in pairs, or for their new home to have a resident cat already.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zucca, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in St. Louis.

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