Luke's Story...
Luke and Leia were found by a mechanic at a car junkyard when they were about 5 days old. The mechanic heard a weak meowing and saw two tiny kittens clinging to each other between a bunch of old cars and some poison ivy vines. The starving babies had been abandoned by their mother, who had disappeared several days previously, and had come out of their nest looking for her. Keeping them alive was going to be a challenge, but 4Paws came to the rescue and three volunteers nursed the frail little kittens back to health. These kittens are true survivors and were meant to live and be happy! They are full of the joy of life and are ready to enjoy the love of a family forever. Luke and Leia have a special bond and would like to be adopted together.

Both kittens are very affectionate; they love kisses and hugs. They have no problem sharing their games with other adult cats and enjoy simply chasing their humans around the house.

We estimate that Luke and Leia were born in mid-August. They have tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, have had shots appropriate for their age, and are micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke, 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.
