Cuddles's Story...
This sweet girl was rescued from a Maryland shelter where she had been surrendered because her owner became very ill and could no longer care for her.

Cuddles previously lived with a 12-year-old child. She loves to play with toy balls and catnip mice. Her foster mom found that she especially enjoys interactive play with her Person using the long flexible stick with feathers on the end. She does chew on the strings of most cat toys, so something thicker like a rope is a better toy for this active girl. While Cuddles is not a small kitty, she is very agile and loves to have her toys thrown up in the air so she can jump and either catch them or swat them away. When play time is over she enjoys to be petted and have an occasional gentle belly rub.

Cuddles really enjoys having human company nearby, relaxing in whatever room her Person is in. She is fond of having a hooded cat bed to hide away and snooze in, and if there is a blanket nearby, you will most likely find her like a little lump taking a nap under it.

Cuddles had two feline companions in a previous foster home. She got along with them fine but didn't especially bond with either one. If adopted into a new home with another cat, proper introduction procedures still need to be followed to ensure feline harmony. Helpful guidelines for this process can be found on our website. Cuddles would also be fine as an only cat as long as she gets plenty of human attention and isn't left alone all day.

Cuddles was born in April 2013. She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, is current on her vaccinations, and has been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cuddles, 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.
