May's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

May's Story...
May is part of a litter of kittens that were rescued from a window-well under a deck. The mom cat put all five of her newly born kittens in there to keep them away from the two big dogs that lived at the house. Unfortunately they were in danger of drowning in the rain so a 4Paws volunteer helped trap the mom cat and rescued the kittens.

She loves to play with feathers and toys that make noise. She will chase furry plastic mice and carry it around until she finds just the right place to hide it. She will purr when you scratch her head and neck. Doesn’t like her tail to be played with! She is good with her siblings but doesn’t like dominant cats.

May is one year old. She has tested negative for FELV/FIV, is spayed, and is current on her distemper and rabies vaccines.She has also been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

May, 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.
