Inky's Story...
Inky was found as a starving and dehydrated kitten on the side of the road in Washington, DC – near the end – by a 4Paws Rescue Team volunteer. She immediately rushed him to the vet, and he had good care that brought him back to life! Now this friendly fellow is huge, healthy and gorgeous!

Inky loves to play, race around, be petted and loved on, and grow fur! He was gray and listless when found, but his long, luxurious, black fur grew in with the help of great food – and now, what had been a pitiful tail is a thing of incomparable beauty! Inky enjoys playing with his kitty brothers and sisters. He likes to spend time in the kitchen with his humans, although he is not a “lap cat” – but he makes a great companion. He is a gentle, friendly boy, and wants a home and family of his own so he can blossom and become even more affectionate, and pounce on laser lights and feather toys.

Inky is one year old. He would love to be adopted into a home with another friendly cat (or cats!). He tests negative for FIV/FeLV and is up on all his vaccinations. He just needs a loving person to befriend him forever.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Inky, 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.
