Arborio's Info...

Arborio's Story...
Arborio is a gentle, affectionate boy who was rescued by 4Paws from a parking lot outside a pizza parlor in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia where he was living with a colony of other young cats.

Arborio would do best in a quiet home. He gets along well with all the resident cats in his foster home. In his forever home he would make a wonderful cat buddy for another gentle kitty. He would also do well as a single cat as long as he had plenty of human love and attention. He is still a little wary of dogs. But he should be fine with gentle, cat-friendly dogs with the proper slow introductions. He is also good with kids that understand how to love him. He will reward you with affection by following you around, and weaving around your feet to get noticed. He also loves to climb on your lap and share couch time. He will tuck his little head under your arm to snuggle up closer, and purr contentedly.

Arborio has perfect litter box manners and is not picky about his food. He snacks during the day on a high-quality dry food and enjoys his Fancy Feast canned food twice a day for breakfast and dinner. He would be a wonderful family cat or a loving companion to a single person.

It is estimated that he was born in 2016. Arborio has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and has been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Arborio, 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.
