My story

Joy is our gorgeous, Bombay looking princess. She came to us round and ready to pop. She gave us four sweet babies and even adopted an little orphan baby. It's Joy's turn so shine now. Joy is very grateful. She follows you around. She asks for treats and attention. She even hops up against you. She does have a little trust issue to overcome though. She spooks easily and then hisses and retrieves. She will outgrow that in time. She did not have a lucky, nurturing start like her kittens but she is so young and receptive and will trust more and more with time. It's time for you to meet her so please fill out an application on our website at so we can set up a time. Thank you!

Why adoption is a great option

Joy, a Bristol 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 Bristol, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Bristol.

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