Pushkin's Story...
Handsome Senior cat Pushkin here! I guess you could say I am like a fine piece of furniture. I am attractive and a conversation piece but I really don't like being messed with too much. When first arriving here I was not a fan of human interaction but the wonderful staff here knew with a little time I would open up. They let me have my space and settle in on my own terms and before they knew it I was making friends and winning over peoples hearts. I don't do well with change and it was hard for me to adjust to the shelter life. I like to have a few constant people in my life and I would do great in a home with one or two people who I can really take the time to get to know. Don't be offended if we aren't snuggling during your first visit, it may take a couple of meetings for me to feel comfortable with you. I enjoy attention, pets under the chin or behind my ears are my favorite and I even like to cuddle once I really get to know you. I am a vocal cat and you will know when I am up for attention and when I have had enough. I do not like sharing my space with other kitties so I will need a home where I can be the one and only pet for the rest of my days. I may look like a big tough guy, but children scare me so I am looking for a home with adults. I like to play and enjoy chasing toys of all kinds around, so if you need to get rid of a few home intruders, I may be your guy! Do you think your home could be right for me? Do you have the time to visit a few times to get to know me? Then come say meet me today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pushkin, a Gloucester Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Gloucester, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Gloucester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gloucester 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 Gloucester 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 Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gloucester paves the way for another one to be saved.
