My story

My name is Cleo, I'm a very special kitty. I have feline hyperesthesia. As far as my behaviors go, I'm pretty good, but with too much petting I lick sores on myself. So I have to wear a shirt at all times and not be touched too much and only on my head. It's a terrible condition, but one there's not much you can do about.There is no cure for this condition. But I can still live a long, normal life even with FH. And although I need a little bit more care than the average cat, I am super sweet and deserve a shot a forever home.

Why adoption is a great option

CLEO, a Royal Oak 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 Royal Oak, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Royal Oak.

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