My story

  • To meet or adopt Moxie, please visit https://goodhomepetadoptions.org/adopt! We are not able to reply to DMs, emails or inquiries made through 3rd party pet adoption websites.
  • Read more about Moxie on Instagram at @goodhome_parkpaws!
  • Age: young adult, approximately 3 years old as of 8/15/22
  • Temperament: sweet, affectionate, shy at first, independent, treat-motivated
  • Moxie MUST be an only cat! She wants to be the star of the show
  • Moxie need an experienced adopter to help her adjust to her new home and set her up for success!

Moxie is a former colony cat who came inside because she was friendly. By way of her feeder, she arrived to our partner @sealien17, after which she moved into foster care with @goodhome_parkpaws. She has been patiently awaiting her purrfect person!

Moxie has a sweet personality and absolutely loves her face & ears scratched, as well as her butt. She will actually push her head against you to pet her more. However, she's also an independent #bossbabe - when she's decided that she's done being pet, she will return to a nearby spot to lie down.

Big changes like moving frighten Moxie, so it takes her about a week to adjust in a new situation. However, she is treat- and affection-motivated and can't resist Churus and crunchy treats! Her adopter can & should use this insider info to help her warm up quickly!

In a stable, loving home, Moxie might become a lap cat. She is certainly a purr monster and simply loves getting pets and scratches.

Why adoption is a great option

Moxie (I'm in foster care!), a Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Brooklyn.

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