My story

Dior is a friendly and outgoing boy who came to us as a stray. He looks grumpy but he's just a little shy with new people. He likes to be petted, play, and have attention once he knows you. He can be a bit feisty so we recommend a home w/o small children. We're not sure yet how he gets along with other cats but he would be very happy as an only kitty.

Dior has tested positive for FIV, similar to HIV in people. It can not be passed to other cats through casual contact, sharing food, water, or a litter box. It can not be passed to people or other pet species. FIV is mainly transmitted by a deep bite wound.

FIV is not a death sentence. Kitties who test positive can live long, happy, and healthy lives. A recent study by Cornell University suggests that FIV negative and positive cats can safely live side by side in the same home with no issues.

Why adoption is a great option

Dior, a Norwalk 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 Norwalk, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Norwalk.

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