Lily's Story...
This beautiful tuxedo girl was rescued from West Virginia with her litter of kittens. She lovingly raised her babies and saw them all off to good homes. Now she is ready to find her own forever home!

Lily has taken awhile to get used to the idea that people are able to be trusted. Now that she has calmed down and decided that living in a house is a good thing, she has become very affectionate, likes to be petted, and puts her forehead up repeatedly for kisses. She still gets nervous when she is picked up though. She has a few toys she likes and uses a variety of scratchers. She has been very interested in the other cats in her foster home, both older and younger, so she will probably be fine with other cats. It is unknown how she is around dogs.

Since it has taken her several months to get used to people, she is going to need an experienced cat family who will be patient with her while she learns to trust them. She does startle to loud noises and sudden movements, so a quiet home without young children would be best.

It is estimated Lily was born around May 2013. She is spayed, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She is current on her vaccinations and has been micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lily, 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.
