My story

Tigger (2yrs old as of 4/28/22) is a large male cat who loves people!  His person got sick and had to go to the hospital and wasn't able to return home...he certainly missed "people" and has been a very happy boy, getting pets, belly rubs, brushing, laying next to someone and even sitting on laps a little.  Tigger is a very laid back guy who doesn't mind other cats.  A hiss or 2, possibly, but then he just goes about his business and ignores everyone!

It didn't take him long to remember what toys were and start swatting around balls and small toys.  And he definitely remembered "wet" food.  He only gets a small amount, and is eating Purina One dry food.  

He's not overly verbal, but if you happen to call for him, or he sees you in the kitchen, he might chat with you a bit.  He purrs and "makes biscuits" with his paws to show his contentment.

Tigger is a very sweet cat who would be a great addition to any family!  He is neutered, has his claws and is up-to-date on all of his shots.  Tigger also has a microchip.

Why adoption is a great option

Tigger, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair 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 Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
