Raphael's Story...
Raphael is a friendly and affectionate boy. He loves sleeping next to his foster mom on the bed every night. He gives lots of head butts, and he thinks chin scratches are the best. Raphael is outgoing and seeks outs attention from his humans. He loves to be around people and get lots of attention. This adorable little laid back guy is always purring and showing you how happy he is. Raphael is living with other cat and dogs in his foster home and gets along well with all of them. Before he came to 4Paws, he was brought to a shelter in Maryland when his former owners were moving. He’s a cute and cuddly kitty looking for his forever home, hopefully with you!

Raphael was born in April 2013. He has been neutered, micro-chipped, is up to date on all his shots, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Raphael, 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.
