A-Z Domestic Shorthair
Here's a favorite for almost all of most. How many domestic shorthairs have you had in your lifetime? I can't begin to count. We had cats when I was growing up and I've had them ever since. At one time I ran a small cat rescue and I've fostered on and off for years. But back on track. Domestics are great cats with varied personalities and weigh between six and sixteen pounds. They're healthy, friendly and come in all sizes and colors. There's eighty million in the U.S. and 600 hundred million in the world. Two unaltered cats can be the forefathers of eighty million cats. That is why it's so important that people spay and neuter their pets. I can't stress this enough. For most of the blogsters out there, I'm preaching to the choir, but when two can turn into eighty million, EVERYONE who has a pet needs to make sure their kitty is altered. Many shelters are on a spay/neuter program and have special prices for seniors or low income. If you think you'd like to add one of these sweeties to your household, visit your local shelter or rescue. Someone is just waiting for you to take him/her home.
