I adopted my Lynx Point Siamese from BARC. And I have to say, the place was very clean and orderly. They had ROOMS of cats, ROOMS full. It's heartbreaking on so many levels. But each room had a caretaker that was in charge of their feeding and care and they were cat lovers, you could tell...they knew about each cat's personality and quirks. I asked the one I was dealing with, which cat in here would YOU adopt for yourself? And she led me to my Bella...Sugar is what I call her. But, funny story...I had decided I wanted a female and wanted to name her Bella. After I had picked my cat and was checking her out, I saw on their registration info that they had named THIS cat Bella as well, it was so cool, considering they have hundreds of cats...seemed like she was meant to be for me.
Aside from all that sappy stuff, it's very reasonable and they provide shots, worming and spay/neuter for like 60.00. Can't beat it. That place has had issues of various kinds in the past, but my experience was pretty flawless. :)
Bella was one lucky cat SSFG...when she ran into YOU!! And of course it was meant to be....
I hear all sorts of wonderful stories about how owners were actually adopted by their pets. ;)
I have been to the Atascocita pet store and usually see the beautiful kitties there...but for some reason, they seem to be unhealthy. Could be a bias on my part, but some seem to have eye issues. Hmmmm, may have to try BARC. Any place else?
All of my cats have been rescues but two, back when I was stupid and thought I had to have a "pure breed" Persian Blue long hair....and then got him a mate so I could breed them (which I never ended up doing "thank God"!)....but they were smokey blue and beautiful, BUT I wasn't even aware back then of all the desperate need for adoptions....just had never thought of it. After I became aware though I have not done that again. There is nothing better then giving a homeless pet a new family!!!! Think of what you do when you do that...you give life where there would have otherwise been no future for the innocent healthy loving animal!!!!
Good what you are doing PIB!....thanks for contributing to reducing the amount of unwanted pets and I know you will find the PERFECT baby for you that will be forever grateful to have such a wonderful owner.
I know you will find the PERFECT baby for you that will be forever grateful to have such a wonderful owner.
Just follow your heart when you get there.
Thank you! I certainly hope to find a furry bundle of joy. And our family will love it to death!! Going to put a litter scoop wrapped up as a present under the tree and will start our search for a pet in earnest after Christmas.
Some of y'all know about my mom's sudden passing. She had a kitten that's almost a year old now and needs a home. He is black and white. I wish I wanted a cat but I just am not into cats and want him to find a good home.
awww.. you're such a sweetheart, Puss!! I have one cat left, and he's a sweetheart!! I rescued him from that horrible pet shop, "Zoo" something..he was crammed in a little cage with small kittens, and at 5 months old, he was way bigger, and could hardly move around!!! I took him to the vet immediately- in the same strip center-) and of course,they hadn't done a thing to take care of him.. he's an orange tabby, and the best personality I've ever seen in a cat!
Our cat was a stray that found us when she was about 6 months old. We tried very hard to find her owners because we were not cat people and travel a great deal so we were not in the market for a pet at all. But she was persistent and won us over. Very smart kitty who now has a very pampered life..including a house sitter that makes sure she is not lonely when we are on a trip (like we are now).
Anyway, the vet that was recommended to me when I needed to get her fixed and for all of her care since then is Animal Care of Lake Houston in Huffman , just over the bridge on 1960.
They have a special little kitten area in their reception where they always seem to have kittens for adoption. You would be reassured that they had very good care and are well socialized. .
