My story

Padma is a beautiful front declawed girl who is 8 yrs old as of 1/22/22. She is a tiny little thing and has a low pitched meow that doesn't match her frame haha! She is confident and friendly with new people. She is very independent and loves to be up high on the catwalk observing or snoozing in a cubby. In other words, she would be perfect for someone who likes a cat who does their own thing. She is basically an introvert who needs a lot of alone time (I feel you, Padma). She is not a lap cat, but will come by for pets on her own terms. 

Padma will need to be in home with no cats, dogs, or young children. She has bald spots on her fur where she has been overgrooming, her skin is pink in some areas, and her eyes are watery. The vet said she may have environmental or food allergies, so she has been given a steroid shot and antibiotic shot (to combat environmental allergies) and we have also switched her food to a limited ingredient diet - duck wet and dry food (to combat food allergies). She may need to have regular steroid shots if her allergies persist.

Why adoption is a great option

Padma, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

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