My story

Would you like to meet a cat that’s also a big, sweet teddy bear? Look no further, because that’s me, Bear! I’m a seven-year-old, all-black boy who is laid back and mellow and ready to enjoy everything the world has to offer. I lived on the street for a while, but I must have had a home at some point, because I’m super social and well-mannered right from the start. It’s obvious that I love people, and living in a foster home has confirmed that I belong indoors. Getting snuggled, rolling around, and showing you my belly for more focused pets are my favorite activities. I’ll treat you to my deep, rumbling purr when I’m happy, which is often. When I want more attention than I’m getting, I might hold up my paw to flag you down. Playing with furry mice and feather toys is good in small doses, but pretty soon I get tired of that and go back to my default mode, which is just hanging out next to you or nearby, being my mellow self. I also enjoy cuddling with other cats, and I get along fine with small dogs. (I don’t have anything against big dogs; I just haven’t met one yet.) Come in and meet me, and let the cuddling begin!

Why adoption is a great option

Bear, a Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gaithersburg.

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