Thumbelina's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Thumbelina's Story...
Thumbelina (Lennie for short) is a gorgeous 2-year-old (born May 2014) polydactyl (extra toes!) with a medium length calico coat looking for a new home.

Lennie is very loved in her current home but unfortunately, due to many changes happening in the home, is no longer comfortable there. Lennie has been raised with small cat-friendly dogs and does fine with them. However, she would prefer not to have to compete for affection with any other pets as she likes to be the center of attention. This cute girl is a diva and a tomboy rolled up into one, with her diva side loving nail files and necklaces and her tomboy side loving to eat well, especially bacon and tiny pieces of whatever you are snacking on that is safe for her to have. She is not shy about begging either! Lennie is also into computers and expects to be allowed to flop in your lap and purr while you pull up bird videos for her to watch with you.

Lennie has a fine silky coat that tends to shed and tangle less than many other cats’ if you gently comb her regularly, which she usually enjoys. Lennie has not been around small children so may do better in a cat-experienced home with older gentle children or in an adult-only home.

Lennie has been spayed and micro chipped, is current on all her shots, and has tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Because she is a polydactyl, her new family must be willing to keep a close watch on her extra toes and nails and clip them regularly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thumbelina, a Merrifield Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Merrifield, or seeking a Calico 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 Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Merrifield paves the way for another one to be saved.
