My story

Rip was wandering through a rural area - tiny, emaciated, dirty, and scared. He showed up on a porch, screaming for help. We were contacted and took him in as a 3-4 week old kitten. Because he was undernourished he was given supplemental bottle feeding. Currently he is very attached to his bottle and holds it with his own paws. Rip loves his food and is a big eater, trying to catch up to he age peers in weight. He is gaining weight but will not be neutered until 6/22, when we feel he should be at weight for anesthesia. Rip was kind of traumatized by his experiences and is very clingy to his foster family. He needs a home where he can receive a LOT of positive attention. Rip loves to be held, carried, and to sleep right next to people. He gets along with the other cats and dog in the foster home, but he craves human contact. Rip would be ideal for a single, couple or a family with lots of cat-loving school-aged kids. He is very needy for human contact.
His neuter and first shots are scheduled for June and after a few days recovery he will be ready to go home. He will do well with any type of INDOOR home who likes lively, adorable, affectionate kitties. To pre-adopt you must go through the adoption process, which includes a written application, landlord approval if renting, virtual safety homecheck, and payment of the adoption fee (50% deposit now, 50% at delivery). Adoption deposit is refundable if rescue backs out for any reason. Adoption deposit is NOT refundable if adopter backs out for any reason. Discount to seniors, military/veterans, and with proof of disability.

Why adoption is a great option

Rip, a Eureka 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 Eureka, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Eureka.

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