Kiku's Info...

Kiku's Story...
I am an absolutely wonderful, sweet kitty!!!

Look at how beautiful and fluffy I am. I love to be petted on my back and my nose, and on the top of my head. I am about six years old and tested negative for…

I am a bit shy and it may take me a little while to open up to you, but when I do, look out!

I purrrrrr and follow my current foster mother all over the house, I can’t stand to be without her. I will run over to her when she enters the room just to say hello. My foster Dad loves me too, he says I am one of the sweetest cats he has ever known. I get along well with children; we have a young girl where I am now, she plays with me and the laser light I love! I love to sleep with humans after I have gotten to know you a bit, right in bed with you. I am extremely loving and make sweet little “purr” sounds when humans come close to me…sometimes I will love you so much I will drool on you, so please don’t get mad at me if you’re drooled all over.

I don’t like other cats too much but I can handle them if I have to, I think. A lot of times I hiss at other cats, so I might be better in a home with only me so I can have all the attention. I don’t think I have ever been around a dog. There are a couple of cats that I get along in my foster home right now, we are good friends and I will even sleep with them in the same room if I’m up high on a dresser with a soft blankie. I also like to sleep and be in the nice cool basement storage room of my foster parents, with the lights down low, all by myself. This is my favorite place, up on the shelves or on top of a blanket on the tall freezer, yeah, I love it up there. My foster parents even have a special litter box in that room, just for me. I like to eat in this room too ... I like my own bowl of water too.

I am the most delightfully sweet kitty. Please take care of me. My foster parents just adore me and will miss me so much (SOB!).

Kiku is spayed, has tested negative for Feline Leukemia/FIV, and is current on her shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kiku, 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.
