Copper's Story...
Copper is incredibly affectionate, playful and beautiful. He is very loving and will snuggle next to you while nudging your hand for pets and rolling around on his back. Copper was named for his beautiful bright orange color, and you can rub him like a lucky penny – he especially likes to have his neck and cheeks scratched.

Copper loves cat toys like laser pointers and can also turn household objects into toys. He like high places. He will lounge on top of the refrigerator, or climb the side of a tall bookcase as if it were a ladder and then perch on the top shelf watching everyone else.

Copper was born in early spring 2009. His mom was once someone’s pet but ended up living outside with her kittens until someone contacted 4Paws to rescue them. Copper doesn’t like the noise and bustle of adoption fairs, so he doesn’t show well there and will also hide for a little while when he arrives at a new home. He would do best in a quieter home and will be fine with other cats.

Copper has been neutered, tested negative for FIV/Feline Leukemia, and is up to date on vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Copper, 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.
