Oswald's Story...
If you are looking for a friendly, large male cat, then Oswald is for you! His name in Anglo-Saxon history meant "king" or "ruler" and with his size he looks the part.

This big boy is very affectionate, playful, and loves to be petted and to rub against your ankles. While he doesn't mind being picked up, he is an armful to hold. He enjoys interactive play with his Person chasing after the feathers-on-a-stick, and entertains himself by batting the ball in the channel of a Turbo scratcher toy and tossing furry catnip mice into the air with his paws.

Oswald does well with small children. He was living with them in a foster home and enjoyed spending time with them. Oswald likes a big comfy bed to relax, and a large upright scratching post to stretch out. He has perfect litter box manners but needs a large box to comfortably turn around.

Oswald is on a required prescription diet to prevent the recurrence of kidney stones and maintain urinary tract health.

Oswald was born 12/3/2011. He has been neutered, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, is current on his vaccinations, and has been micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oswald, 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.
