Boogaloo's Story...
Boogaloo is sweet, gentle, soft and playful, enjoys meeting new people, and loves to cuddle. She’s an active, outgoing, happy 3 ½ year old, everything a person could want in a kitty. And she’s beautiful – her lovely silver fur glows as she darts around or nestles with you on a sofa. She’ll greet you in the morning ready to run and chase her toys. She’s full of energy and races around – then by midmorning she’s ready to curl up in her favorite chair with a blankie and her toy mouse, be petted, and have a conversation. She’s smart and has opinions on everything – a small cat with a big personality!

Boogaloo would like lots of space to race around, play and explore in her new home, and would also love a companion kitty. She tried to make friends with the elderly female cat in her foster home, but was rebuffed. She was sad to be hissed at, and would enjoy a real playmate. She likes Fancy Feast, especially Gravy Lovers chicken and turkey, and has free access to Hill’s Science Diet Optimal Care kibble. She doesn’t like little kitty dishes, but prefers her water from a large bowl, and her wet food on a small plate!

Beautiful Boogaloo was part of a large litter of 6-month old kittens abandoned in a DC alley in the fall of 2012. All the others were black! They were all so friendly they got into the neighbor’s laps as they sat on their porches, and interfered with outdoor parties! People called Animal Control, who in turn called 4Paws to find them all homes – and we did. But the neighbors kept Boogaloo there, and would not let us adopt her out. As fate would have it, this winter Boogaloo got an eye injury. Then people realized they needed to relinquish her so she could have the vet care she needed, and stay safely inside as a beloved member of a responsible, loving family. So Boogaloo finally came to 4Paws and received the excellent care she needed from a veterinary ophthalmologist and a great foster home.

Boogaloo is spayed, updated on her vaccinations and tests negative for FIV/FeLV. Now she’s ready to find her own forever home, just like her eight brothers and sisters did three years ago!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boogaloo, 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.
