Checkers's Story...
Checkers is a beautiful young calico girl with a sweet and gentle personality to match! Her coat is a very striking color combination of peach, black, and white on a delicate frame; often the peach color has darker marmalade colored stripes which indicates her ginger tabby heritage. Specifically, her ginger-striped boots with white feet and gloves make her irresistibly adorable! Her sea-green eyes are quite soulful and reflect a maturity beyond her years. But don’t let her gentle nature fool you…Checkers loves playing with her toys, especially her toy mice and dangly things. When she’s all tired out, she likes to retire to her fluffy kitty bed where she often fluffs up her blankies before taking a nice nap.

Checkers is a very easy going girl and likes to be held. She is an excellent lap cat, and will seek out human companionship…standing up on her legs to get to the lap of her choosing. She has a very unique meow…almost like a baby crying…and will make her presence known when she wants attention. She is a very good eater, and is trying to get her figure back after the birth of her kitties.

Checkers was a young mom, and had 4 of the cutest little kittens – Paddington, Sienna, Briony, and Beatrice. She was an excellent mom to the babes, and now they are all looking for their forever home. They were all living with a kind woman and her dog, when it was determined the feline family would be best adopted into other homes since their owner could no longer care for them. Checkers would likely do fine with other cats or a gentle dog since she was raised with another cat and a poodle mix.

Checkers was born in June 2014, and came to 4Paws in hopes of finding her forever home. 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

Checkers, 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.
