Susie's Story...
Susie is a dainty little black-and-white girl taken in by 4Paws when her elderly owner suffered a stroke and had to move into a nursing home. All sweet Susie wants is her own special person to love and be loved by; give her affection and kindness and she’ll be your faithful companion forever.
Susie craves human attention—likes to be picked up and cuddled--and really loves her wet food, especially Fancy Feast Classic in chicken flavor. She also enjoys Bravo freeze-dried chicken treats. She’s a social eater who likes to have human company while she’s eating her breakfast and dinner.

Susie has been moved around quite a bit since losing her original home, and she is wary with strangers until she knows she can trust you. She responds beautifully to attention and kindness, though. If you give her lots of one-on-one time in the beginning, saying close to her and feeding and petting her, she will quickly warm up to you and begin greeting you with a smile on her face and her tail in the air. Just watching Susie trotting around the house with her unique bouncy gait makes you feel happy—it’s like she has springs under her paws.

Susie does not care for the company of other cats, preferring instead to spend time with her humans. Susie is fine being an only cat as long as she gets plenty of attention from her people. She would do best in a quiet home.

Susie is estimated to have been born in 2009 or 2010. She is spayed, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, is current on vaccinations, and has been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Susie, 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.
