Duke's Story...
COURTESY POST -- 8/29/2016

Duke, a cat who has served as the "mouser" at Laurel Heights United Methodist Church, needs a new home immediately! The school board has asked the couple who located him to remove him from the church immediately.

Duke is a calm, somewhat shy cat at least 8 years of age, who has not exhibited the need for lots of toys and things that some cats do. He was originally brought to Laurel Heights at the request of the church to eradicate rodents. Duke was found by a dedicated couple who have participated for many years in the local feral cat network. One day when they went to feed the cats, they noticed that there was a new adult cat there who had clearly been a domestic cat. It was 5 years before they could trap Duke, get him neutered and take him to LHUMC. There he spent 2 weeks eradicating rodents from under the choir loft.

Although brought to the church building as a mouser, he has won the hearts of many. Duke likes to sit at the feet of people sitting in the reception area. He is a very gentle cat and will be a blessing to anyone who adopts him.

Duke is FIV positive and must be an indoor-only kitty. FIV is passed from feline to feline through a bite. He has no signs of the FIV manifesting itself in his body, and the vet said he may never, because he is well cared for and very healthy. His shots are up-to-date and his teeth have been cleaned.

Should Duke become ill in the future, Karla and Frank would gladly assume the responsibility of his medical care, if needed. To adopt Duke, please contact Karla Galindo at or 210-378-6003.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, a Bulverde 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 Bulverde, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Bulverde.

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