Cricket's Info...

I am up to date with shots and good with cats.

Cricket's Story...
Cricket came from a colony of cats in West Virginia and although he may be small has a big loud purr engine! Even if he thinks you are going to pet him his purr engine instantly turns on. Cricket will even lift up his head to meet your hand for you to pet him purring loudly all the while. And when he wants your attention he will follow you around holding his tail straight up while staring at you lovingly with his big copper eyes and talking to you with soft adorable meows begging for you to sit down so he can jump on your lap and put his nose right up to yours. Cricket also loves for you to lay on the floor with him so you can pet him until he flops on his back showing you his hidden white spot of fur on his tummy for you to rub.

Cricket has been raised with several other kitties and does will with them all so he would need another kitty playmate to keep him from getting lonely when you are not at home. Cricket has seen quiet cat friendly small dogs through a gate and does not really seem frightened of them so if introduced slowly should do fine with similar cat loving dogs as long as he is given his space until he trusts them. Cricket is very playful and loves his toys and once he gets his favorite toy, even his favorite very long wand toy, he will drag it to special hiding place that only he knows about.

Cricket was born April 20, 2016. He has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, is current on all shots appropriate for his age, has been neutered and micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, a Merrifield Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
