Pippa's Story...
This gorgeous, petite Calico is approximately 1 ½ years old. She has been very receptive to new people right from her first day in her foster home. She is a very active girl who is capable of keeping herself entertained with a variety of toys, but loves to play with toy mice the most. She also enjoys playing with her humans with streamers and the laser pointer. She tolerates being held for a little while to get kisses but soon wants down to frolic again.

She has a loud purr when she is getting attention, but has a very gravelly voice when she meows, sounding more like a bullfrog than a cat!

She loves to sleep in any soft, warm spot whether it’s the bed, couch or a blanket. She occasionally still gets into her carrier to sleep.

She is very curious about other cats, and seems to want to play with them and snuggle at nap time, but her housemates are not inclined. Pippa has shown no signs of aggression toward the other cats but runs right up to them and makes them a little nervous. She has not been exposed to dogs or small children yet.

She explores the house frequently, but still spooks to many common sounds – dishwasher, coffee grinder, even the toilet flushing. Getting too close to open (screened) windows also makes her rather nervous.

he has recently been spayed, has tested negative for FIV/Leukemia and is up to date on vaccines.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippa, a Merrifield Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Merrifield, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Merrifield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Merrifield 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 Merrifield 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 Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Merrifield paves the way for another one to be saved.
