Lindy's Story...
This brown tabby mommy cat was rescued with her kittens from a rural Virginia town where the elderly owner could not take care of them. Her kittens have all been adopted, and now it’s Lindy’s turn!

Lindy is the sweetest, snuggliest little girl! She is very affectionate, has a quick and loud purr, and really enjoys attention from her person, including interactive playtime with toys. She appreciates a warm lap and will purr while kneading her front paws. Her petit frame makes her perfectly lap sized.

Lindy has some scarring on the surface of her left eye from an unknown injury incurred prior to her rescue by 4Paws, but the veterinarian said it is not hurting her or impacting her vision and should be left untouched. She’s such a pretty girl, inside and out, even with a tiny cloud on her eye.

Even though she will be so happy to find her forever home, she may be a little shy at first while she takes in her new surroundings; please give her a few days to feel relaxed and confident – it will definitely be worth the wait! Give her a little quiet time and some canned wet food and she’ll be a happy girl before you know it.

Lindy is about as loving as they come, but she can be frightened by scary noises or when she is suddenly grabbed or picked up; as a result, she will do best in a home without any small children or doggies. She will be more than happy to soak up all the gentle chin scritches, petting, and soft brushing you care to give her though while she’s safe in your lap or on the ground. Lindy will let you hold her too so long as you let her know beforehand.

She got along well with several other cats in her foster home and would often be found cuddling with them, so another feline companion would be good for her, with proper introductions. You may want to consider Pandora, a cat who was in the same rescue group and is friendly with Lindy.

Lindy is estimated to have a birth date in September 2013. She tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, is current on vaccines, and has been spayed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lindy, a Merrifield Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Merrifield, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Merrifield paves the way for another one to be saved.
