Floyd's Info...

I am already spayed.

Floyd's Story...


I'm looking for a new forever home for my adorable cat, Floyd. She is 11 years old, spayed, and in good health. She and her brother Rufus lived with me happily for 9 years, but sadly he died two years ago and since then Floyd has been very lonely. Floyd and Rufus were the best of buddies and she has never gotten used to living alone. I work long hours and am not able to get a second cat to keep Floyd company. Though it saddens me to reach this conclusion, I think Floyd's quality of life would be greatly improved if she had more attention and human interaction. Ideally, I would like for her to live with someone who either works from home or is retired, and doesn't have any other pets.Floyd is a little skittish at first, but once she warms up to a person she is very loving and affectionate. She's not a lap cat, but she loves to cuddle next to me on the couch. Floyd is an indoor cat. She loves to sit at an open window, but never tries to get outside.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Floyd, a Washington American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Washington, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in Washington.

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