My story

Gigi (2yrs old as of 4/28/22) is a long-haired gray tabby.  Her person got sick and had to go to the hospital and wasn't able to come home, so Gigi and the cat she lived with ended up in Animal Control.  Gigi was overly distressed at losing her person and her home and was scared and mad in AC.  She wouldn't let anyone touch her for a long time.  Gigi finally let someone pet her a little -- and that was what saved her.  Turns out -- Gigi is a giant love sponge -- she just hated Animal Control!

Gigi doesn't seem interested in toys at this point -- but we are hoping that she will continue to relax and get in the swing of things again (maybe she never played much) -- we KNOW she loves to be petted and will roll over for you to pet her belly!  She starts to purr at the first pet.

Gigi doesn't seem interested in other cats at this point and hisses, but there is no aggression -- so she might do fine with a laid back cat.

Gigi would love to have a home where someone adores her and wants to pet her and let her sit in their lap.

Why adoption is a great option

Gigi, a St. Louis Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis 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 St. Louis 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
