Lemmy's Story...
Lemmy is funny and sweet, comical and loving at the same time. He will welcome you with loud purrs and lots of love, and sit on your lap with complete happiness, but he will be ready to play and be silly and make you laugh any time. Lemmy also wants to be a good companion whether you prefer to read or do chores around your house, so he’ll be with you wherever you go.

He has large expressive yellow eyes. He is a Havana Brown mix. His fur is mostly a rich dark chocolate brown color, with deep black areas and a cute white spot on his chest. He was found living as a stray in a trailer park in West Virginia before he and several other cats living there were rescued by 4Paws.

Lemmy quickly warms up to those who are patient and gentle with him. He gets along well with older children and he lets you know gently when he needs a break or he is ready to play (which is always!). He likes to play with you or on his own with his toys, especially toy mice and balls with bells in them, and is a gentleman using his scratcher and his box. He is fearless when it comes to his foster using the dust buster but will hide from the vacuum! Lemmy gets along well with other cats, and is happy to share his space.

Lemmy was born in March 2015. He’s been neutered, micro-chipped, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is up to date on all his shots. He is on a prescription food diet for urinary tract health, to maintain the appropriate urinary PH and prevent crystals.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lemmy, 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.
