My story

  • To meet or adopt Karl, please visit! We are not able to reply to DMs, emails or inquiries made through 3rd party pet adoption websites.
  • Read more about Karl on Instagram at @goodhome_lincolnpfurr!
  • Age: senior, approximately 12 years old as of 6/15/22
  • Temperament: friendly, playful, easygoing, affectionate, sweet, chatty, confident, independent

Karl & his brother Joe came to us when their owner had to move out of the state and couldn't bring them. These two have been together since they were kittens, and have only had one owner til now. 

Karl's owner says he loves to be near his people and snuggle up, but he's not a "lap cat." Karl is playful and loves the feather wand toy. At mealtimes, he's chatty and will ask for dinner.

Karl is in excellent health - at his recent vet visit for a dental cleaning, the vet couldn't believe he was over 6 years old!

In foster care, Karl is an absolute sweetie. He's so sociable and loves to greet you when you come home. He will meow in your face when you get home to tell you that he's missed you and wants attention. He loves pets. He's a confident and independent kitty who loves to walk around or stare out the window.

Because his first home and his foster home both had cat dads, it's possible that Karl might be a great fit for a male adopter.

Why adoption is a great option

Karl (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.
