Hobbes's Info...

Hobbes's Story...
I’m a well-mannered, affectionate gray tabby girl just longing for a home of my own. If you adopt my twin sister Gracie too, that’s even better—we’re twice as nice together. Gracie says I boss her around, but she knows I love her, and we make-up for any bickering when we snuggle up next to each other and lather each other in kisses.

I eat only canned food because I had urinary crystals once and need plenty of moisture in my diet to prevent recurrence. I love my twice-daily meals of Fancy Feast—which I have to gobble down fast or Gracie will steal it. Maybe that’s why I have a better figure than she does. I also love to play with my toys—the laser toy and my caterpillar on a string are my favorites—and I have a curiosity and adventurous spirit that make me seem younger than I am.

Gracie and I were adopted together as kittens in 2008 and returned in 2016 due to a change in the family’s circumstances. A quiet home where Gracie and I could each have our own special person would be perfect. If not adopted with Gracie, I would prefer to be an only kitty; I don’t like any other cats except for her.

Hobbes was born in January 2008. She’s been spayed, micro chipped, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and she’s up to date on all her shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hobbes, 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.
