Desi's Info...

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

Desi's Story...
Desi and Lucy are a bonded pair who were surrendered to a Maryland shelter, where 4Paws found them. The prior owner said the smallest child had developed allergies; in addition, the family had a dog of which the cats were very afraid.

Both cats arrived already declawed (likely causing their fear of dogs, having no defenses). There were five children in the prior home ages 1 through 19, so the pair has had exposure to a wide range and should be able to adapt to another home with children, but not with dogs.

Desi was born in May 2011 and Lucy was born in May 2010. Both are altered, tested negative for FIV and FELV, are current on vaccinations, and have been micro chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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