Xena's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Xena's Story...
Xena is a beautiful white Persian spayed female with big, blue eyes who was found nearly starving in a carport. Her rescuers brought her in, got her vetted and well-fed, and she is now healthy, gorgeous and very ready to find a permanent home. She was named Xena, the "Warrior Princess", because the warrior in her survived a life abandoned outside, but she is so much more a princess due to her sweet disposition and gorgeous looks!

Xena loves other cats and plays quite a lot with the foster kittens in the home. She loves meeting new furry friends and loves to play chase and tackle with them when it is playtime. She also likes to be in the same room where her people friends are hanging out and to sleep in the bed with her favorite people at night. Xena will let you pick her up and carry her around, and she enjoys getting affection. She is very sweet and laid back when she is not playing with the other cats, and she likes all the things that most cats enjoy - toys, cardboard boxes, and affection. She can be a little clumsy at times, so she needs people who will be gentle with her and who won't throw her down or put her in settings where she would fall too many feet if she missed a jump.

We have no way of knowing Xena's age or breed status, but she clearly comes from a Persian heritage, and it is very possible that she had been caged for most of her life before being left outside to wander and starve. Her fosters do not believe she was ever given good, loving care until she made her way into their home. Her teeth are in great condition, which would suggest she is a young adult, and she tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. She can also hear just fine and does not have the genetic mutation that can sometimes cause deafness in all-white, blue-eyes cats. Please consider making her a part of your family!

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.
