Iris's Story...
Mother of the year!! Beauty Queen! Took in two gray babies that weren’t hers and nursed them back to health! Hungry, hungry, hungry! Iris is a petite gray and white kitty girl who is shy by nature and very-well behaved. She will likely acclimate well to other cats. It takes her a little longer than most to form a bond with her human but she does! To help her along, wrap her in a soft blanket, speak softly, pet her little brow and look into those big gorgeous eyes! She was formerly an outdoor cat who will soon be looking for some R&R in a quieter environment and LOADS of much-deserved pampering!

Iris was born in July 2012. She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia and is up to date on all her shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Iris, 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.
