My story

Hi there. I’m a 3-year-old petite female tortoiseshell sweetheart. The first thing you might notice is that I only have 3 legs (because of an injury.) The second thing you will notice is how active I am. I can run and jump and play just like any 3-year-old kitty! I love to play with toys, most especially those with feathers and strings. I’m always up for a good laser tag game. When the crazies set in, I’m pretty good at amusing myself just running around too.

I might seem a bit shy when we first meet. It does take me a while to get comfortable in new surroundings. But I will crave your affection from the start. Head butts and purrs are my specialty. Please do pet and rub my neck and give me back scratches. I love, love to be brushed and will roll on my back and wriggle for more. Once we are really acquainted, I am a snuggler and will even sleep on top of you (if you like.)

I am mostly quiet but do like to chat from time to time. Let’s get to know each other and then cuddle and play!

Why adoption is a great option

Shuri, 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.
