Serafina's Story...
Serafina is a very sweet and petite formal feral kitten who was rescued from an abandoned garage in Baltimore. She grew to love the attention of her people friends, and learned that jumping up on the bed or desk at which you are sitting and giving a perky little meow led to extra loving. She now wants to be pet as much as possible and is quite the chatter – letting you know when she needs more, more, more petting! She also very much enjoys sleeping in bed with her foster mom, and loves to crawl up onto her belly or chest to sleep and be pet. Serafina has the absolute sweetest habit of kneading and “nursing” on the chenille bedspread while having her back scratched. She also loves chasing the red light on her laser toy – although more often than not, simply in circles. However, not only is Serafina lively and charming, she is also absolutely beautiful. She is a gorgeous silver color with butterscotch markings and has a distinctive little streak down her nose.

Serafina is the tiniest kitty in her foster home – a mere six pounds- and used to often find herself getting chased by the others. However, she has turned out to be one tough cookie, and now she is the first to run her little self right back toward the others. Although she certainly can hold her own, she would love a home where she can finally be a queen in her castle. She would also likely enjoy the company of another cat, as she is accustomed to being surrounded by other kitties- although it would be important for this new housemate to make her feel welcome. Serafina still has certain quirks and would probably not do well with children (for example, she does not like to be approached quickly and does not like you to lean over to pet her if you are standing), but these seem to only make her more enchanting - she has come such a long way and is sure to continue to blossom when given the individualized attention she deserves. Serafina is certainly a favorite kitty and her foster mom will be very sad to see her go, but she wants what will be the very best for her. Most importantly, Serafina needs a loving home with people who will spend time helping her adjust to her new surroundings and give her love, love, love.

Serafina is about two years old, is spayed, has tested negative for FIV/FeLV, and had all of her vaccinations. She currently eats Wellness wet food, and she cannot get enough of Mellow Mutt dried chicken treats (don’t tell her that they are for dogs!).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Serafina, 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.
