Axl's Story...
My name is Axl and I want to be your new best friend! I came to 4Paws malnourished and scared. Once the vet gave me the OK, I went to a foster home where I got lots of food and love. It took me longer than most to stop hiding. Once I realized I was safe, I turned into the most affectionate lap cat ever. My favorite activities include eating, getting pet, grooming myself in my human’s lap, exploring my foster family’s new home, following my foster mom around, and chasing toys. I like balls that I can both bat around and throw, if they jingle it’s even better.

I have lots of love to give. I am cautious in new situations, but with proper introductions, I should be OK with other cats. I have not been around dogs. Older children are fun to play with, but young children are a little scary. I am FIV and FeLV negative, have been spayed, and am up to date with all my vaccinations. Axl was born March 2010.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Axl, 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.
