Dominique's Story...
Hi - my name is Dom and I am one lucky boy! I was lost and hungry but luckily, a 4Paws volunteer's found me. She thought that I was wild at first, but once inside, realized that I was just some one's pet that ended up outdoors having to take care of myself.

Because I had to fend for myself, I play a little rough sometimes. I just so love playing and attention that I get over overexcited. My foster mom says that I roughhouse just like a little boy. I love company and sit on my foster mom's lap for a kiss, cuddle, and head butt. I am a talkie boy. I also love to be sung to softly while my mom carries me in her arms, even by people who cannot carry a tune (like my foster mom). I have perfect litter box manners.

During my travels outdoors, I learned to be leery of strangers. Consequently, I will need a little time to adapt to my new home. I am a bit of a bossy boy, so it is probably best if I have my own house to rule.

I have tested negative for FELV/FIV, am neutered, and am current on my distemper and rabies vaccines. I am approximately 7 years old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dominique, 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.
