Simba's Story...
Simba is the little lion king you’ve been waiting for! This boy has big personality as well as big polydactyl paws! That means he has extra toes, and he has them on all four feet too.

Simba is very outgoing and affectionate; he’s always curious about what’s going on and comes right up to you to see what’s going on. He loves being petted and will happily purr in response to some chin scratches. He doesn’t mind being held, but he prefers to be next to you on the couch where you can worship him appropriately.

Simba is still young and very playful. He enjoys all types of toys and will grab at them with his big, strong paws that he uses like little hands with his toe “thumbs”. His favorite is a wand toy with a feather on the end.

Simba was found living outside as a stray before he was brought to a shelter in Maryland. We saw what a cute little boy he was and brought him down to 4Paws to find his forever home. If you adopt Simba, you’ll see he lives by a worry free philosophy!

Simba has been introduced to a small dog and, after an initial hiss or two, settled down just fine. He also gets along with his other foster kitties harmoniously. He is particularly close to his pal Zilla, where they play together and groom each other.

Simba was born in February 2014. He has been neutered, micro-chipped, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is current on his shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Simba, 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.
