Checkers's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.

Checkers's Story...
This handsome boy came from West Virginia where he was found abandoned in a yard. He is very sweet and affectionate and seeks out attention and will even flop onto his side when you pet him. Checkers is very famous for being an escape artist and even knows how to open locks to cages so his new family will need to take extra care when opening doors around him because he likely will be watching and studying every move to see when he can make his escape. Because of this unique skill an adult only home or a home with older children that can be extra careful not to let him escape would be best suited for this little Houdini.

Because of his easy-going personality and calm reaction to cats caged near him, we believe he would get along with other cats if introduced appropriately.

Checkers was born approximately October 2015. He has been neutered and micro chipped. He has had all his shots and has tested negative for FIV/Feline Leukemia.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Checkers, 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.
