My story

Despite what the song says, you don’t even have to be a girl for this Little Diamond to be your best friend. I’m a 3-year-old little lady with a black face, a white bib and whiskers, and big, sparkling yellow eyes, and I love people! Living outdoors for a while, I felt and probably looked like a “diamond in the rough,” so it was a relief when rescuers scooped me up. I’m pretty sure I had a home at some point; I’m MUCH happier now that I’m back indoors where I belong.

I’m eager for attention, affection, and petting. Need help with anything? I’m quite a creative typist, and I’ll be glad to assist with any household tasks, hoping for frequent breaks for petting and snuggling. You’re welcome to pick me up, and once I get to know you, I’ll love relaxing on your lap. If you’re busy, I’ll just lounge near a window and enjoy the outdoor sights. The other cats in my foster home made me nervous, but maybe they were just too lively; I might make friends with a quiet, gentle cat.

Diamonds are forever! And all this Diamond needs is a forever home. Let’s meet and see if your home is the one for me.

Why adoption is a great option

Little Diamond, 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.
