Thumper's Story...

Sweet but shy, I am a cuddler in disguise. I love to chase things – toys, my brother, a shoelace trailed behind my human, figments of my imagination – and wrestle with my brother. The laser pointer is fun too. I love to play with my brother (Bambi), my humans, and anything else that moves –especially the tails of my foster siblings. Not as outgoing as my brother, I am curious but cautious when it comes to new sights and sounds. I take a while to get comfortable in new situations, but once I do, I love attention. I like to sit next to you, on your lap, or half and half and I purr sometimes, but only when I mean it. I don’t want to be separated from my best friend, playmate, and protector, Bambi.

Thumper is up to date on shots, is spayed, and has tested negative for FIV/FELV


Purr machine looking for an excuse to get the motor running. Friendly, outgoing, and fearless, I tend to be the first to greet you at the door or out of the shower. If you can’t play right now, I can amuse myself with anything that can be chased – especially plastic and stuffed toys that I can chase and carry in my mouth. I love to play with my sister as well. If you do have some time, I like that red light a lot, I’m also a fan of a moving shoelace.

When I am done playing, I will curl up next to my humans, or on them sometimes for a nap. I am very low key and have no fear. I love mealtime and getting attention. I am still young and like a balance of sleep and play. I don’t want to be separated from my best friend, playmate, and favorite pillow, Thumper.

Bambi is up to date on shots, is neutered, and has tested negative for FIV/FELV

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thumper, 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.
