Laredo's Story...
Laredo is a sweet, female orange tabby. She is neat and behaves well. Her favorite thing to do is to sit next to her human and get petted or brushed. She will settle down next to you on the couch and keep to herself. She doesn’t annoy you when you are trying to read the paper or climb all over you or your keyboard like a lot of other kitties. She likes the laser pointer, sitting in the sun, sleeping on the rocking chair, and cat treats.

Laredo is initially very timid of new people and animals. She would do best in a quiet home with patient people who understand she needs to initiate any contact. Once you have earned her trust, she is a wonderful companion. She will do well in a home without other animals, or with animals that don’t try to engage her in play or interact with her except the occasional nose touch “hello.” In her foster home, she is buddies with two mastiffs and shared her sun room with another foster cat before he got adopted. Laredo’s left eye gets teary and waters sometimes. This has been checked by a vet and no cause has been found.

It is estimated that Laredo was born in 2012. She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is up to date on her vaccinations. She has also been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Laredo, 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.
