Twiggy's Story...
Twiggy and Kalamata love to sit in your lap, especially if you have a warm blanket on a cold winter day, or they’ll lay at your feet in bed each night and reward you with a peaceful purr. These bonded brothers also love to cuddle with one another, you’ll often find them intertwined in their cat bed grooming one another, or running around wrestling and playing tag.

Kalamata is the fluffy medium haired brown tabby whose mane and coat are continuing to fluff out to full potential for winter. He’s always happy to show off his belly so you can feel how silky soft he is. Twiggy is the short haired marble tabby with gorgeous and unique swirls on his sides, and an adorable spotted tummy he likes to show off when you hold him like a baby in your arms.

Kalamata makes the cutest chirping and trilling meow noises, either to get more attention or to get you to play. Anything he can move around with his paws and chase after is great fun. Even a piece of kibble! While Kalamata is the bolder brother who looks out for the two of them, once Twiggy gets to know and trust you and your attention is on him, he really opens up, snuggles with you, and bonds quite closely. He has a quiet little meow when he wants to tell you he’s particularly happy.

The brothers take good care of each other, and they have ever since they were babies living as strays in a neighborhood in Springfield before being rescued by 4Paws. They’re caring little guys and they get along very well with the other laid back cats in their foster home. They’re looking for a furr-ever home where they can play, give love and get love in a safe and happy home!

Twiggy and Kalamata were born in April 2016. They’ve been neutered, micro-chipped, are up to date on all their shots, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Twiggy, 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.
