Xena's Story...
Xena is a gorgeous white adult Persian who is very sweet and gentle. She enjoys exploring, relaxing, making cute upside-down poses, and snuggling up on her favorite human for bedtime. She has a super thick coat of long, luxurious white fur that requires frequent grooming to help her keep it from getting matted. Other than keeping her groomed and feeding her a good quality food for her mildly sensitive digestive system, she is very easy to care for and quite laid back.

We are not sure how old Xena is, but she was an adult when she was rescued in the summer of 2012, hiding in the carport of a 4Paws volunteer’s home. At the time, she showed signs that she had been trying to survive outside on her own for at least a few months, and her rescuers felt like she had probably been caged for most of her life prior to being dumped outdoors. She was so excited to meet other cats, kittens, and cat toys in her new foster home.

Xena was adopted in 2012 but recently returned as her adopter’s health prevented her from being able to give Xena the care that she needed. Xena got along very well with a 7 yr old female cat in her adoptive home (and even groomed her kitty friend there). She does well with the other 9 cats in her foster home and doesn't bother them at all, but she would prefer a home with not quite so many cats! She is not in the least bit aggressive toward other kitties, and is only playful with the sweet ones who show that they want to be playful with her. Otherwise, she is mostly content just hanging out and just watching the activity around her.

Xena is spayed and current on vaccines. She tested negative for FIV & feline leukemia. She will need to be fed high quality foods with no or little grain content in order to keep her digestive system working optimally.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Xena, a Merrifield Persian cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Persian for sale in Merrifield, or seeking a Persian 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 Persian breeders who help with Persian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Merrifield paves the way for another one to be saved.
