Animal shelters must screen their cats for health and temperament, whereas pet adoption ads posted on the Web or in newspapers by individuals are usually unregulated. Adopting a new cat from a shelter is therefore often the best, safest option.read more
Breed: Maine Coon mix
Owner: Yvonne B
Hometown: Coachella Valley, CA
Likes: sitting in the soft chair on the patio, crunch treats, drinking water from the tap, lots of pets, tripping mommy is also fun
Dislikes: having his nails trimmed, taking medicine, getting a hair cut
Yvonne B says:
Brody is my special friend. He was rejected by his own cat mommy in the home where he was born so he had to be bottle fed from the beginning of his little life. When he came to me he was not well. He had worms very badly and needed care. Because he does not like taking medicine I had to be very careful when treating him. Today Brody is healthy and happy. He does have to still have his hair cut because we live in the desert and it's too hot for his thick Maine Coon coat. But we have worked that all out, I let him walk around freely on the table and trim him. It's not always pretty, but he is much happier without that heavy fur. He is my little love.
