Honeydew's Story...
Honeydew is an adorable, friendly, outgoing and affectionate fellow who just wants to be someone’s only kitty. He is active but gentle, adores people, and loves to play. As a youngster he had the best dance moves ever, and now that he’s big, he still has bouncy dancing feet! Get out the cat toys, and watch him soft shoe, tap and hip hop like a star!

Honeydew is cute and fun and an awesome all around wonderful kitty – a joy to have as a companion.

Honeydew has quite a storied past. He was rescued from DC Animal Control, right off the truck! A little orange and white kitty was being removed from a public housing apartment and stuck in a cage in an Animal Control van. A 4Paws lady intervened, and offered to take him that very day – the shelter was full, so they were happy to give him up to a rescue group! And, they even let us save a second cat, too! We felt so lucky to have saved Honeydew, because this boy is a pleasure to be around, and he loves human company. His affectionate nature and enjoyable antics won everyone’s heart. Honeydew was adopted by a man who expected to have this sweet kitty into old age. But a serious illness and fate intervened, and Honeydew lost the human who was the center of his world. So now Honeydew is looking for a new, loving family.

Honeydew is 4 1/2 years old. He is neutered, up on his vaccinations and tests negative for FeLV. He tests positive for FIV, which you can read about on our website, or ask us for more information. He’s healthy and is expected to live a long, full and happy life with someone who takes good care of him and loves him forever.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Honeydew, 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.
