Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Jul 24, 2014
My girlfriend and I adopted Willow, a female American Shorthair, just a couple months ago from the Fort Worth animal shelter and she has enhanced our lives greatly. We're both accustomed to dogs, but since we live in a small studio apartment, we decided to adopt a cat. It is safe to say that Willow has definitely became a part of the family. She has a sweet personality and loves to play. We decided not to have her claws removed and she scratches some which we're hoping she grows out of as she matures. She used the litter box the first night we brought her home. The whole cost at the animal shelter was ninety-five dollars and it included spaying, shots, and a chip implant. She is very vocal, but she usually quiets down as we get ready for bed. If you're easily annoyed, you might want to consider a slightly older cat, but if you're looking for companionship on a budget, I would highly recommend an American Shorthair. Some males might spray so don't say I didn't warn you.
