Desi's Story...
Boo Boo and Desi are big, cuddly teddy bears, looking for a foster or a forever home. They love to snuggle, they love to sprawl out on their backs and get tummy rubs, they just love to be with people, soaking up attention they can get. Boo Boo has a distinctive orange and white coat and very expressive face, he’s more of the couch potato type. Desi has the cute black and white coat, he’s the more playful of the boys and loves to go to town on a good feathery wand toy.

Both brothers are talkative and happy cats, they like to greet new people with a meow and a friendly head bump against a hand, leg, or face. They are constant, loyal companions who like to get plenty of petting and attention. They both are quite confident and walk right over for more love.

Boo Boo and Desi get along well with other laid back cats. The brothers had been adopted as kittens and were recently given up by their former owners when they got a new dog who the brothers were scared of. 4Paws took them in to find them a home where they could be appreciated for the wonderful, cuddly cats that they are. Boo Boo and Desi are adorable bonded brothers looking for a foster or a forever home! Boo Boo is on a prescription diet for weight management, and Desi is also on a prescription diet for weight management and urinary crystals.

Boo Boo and Desi were born in July 2010. They’ve been neutered, micro-chipped, are up to date on all of their shots, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Desi, 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.
