Cherry's Story...
Cherry and Kiwi are love bugs who love hugs! They are both extremely friendly and affectionate, and the male, Cherry, will put his arms around your neck to hug you and give you a kiss. They both follow people around and rub and purr constantly. If you lean over they jump up to snuggle you. Since they are so unusually outgoing and affectionate, and love to kiss and rub you, you must love cats if you adopt them!

The kitties were abandoned in late August, along with five black siblings, in an alley in Washington, DC – the entire litter of super-friendly “teenage” cats, born around March 2012, left to fend for themselves. They were heard before they were seen, hiding up and down the alley in bushes and under porches, crying loudly for people to save them from the scary outside world. They desperately wanted to be back inside and safe. Finally they had to come out for food, and neighbors fed the little cats. They were all so friendly and love people so much that they tried to follow their caretakers home, and even jumped in peoples’ laps for a snuggle when they sat on their porches! Someone called Animal Control - but the Humane Society shelter was full – the outcome would have been bad. But these lucky kitties are so great, the WHS lady called 4Paws and we went to the alley and took all of them in. The kitties were all thrilled to be rescued, and get the love they crave. Cherry and Kiwi also love each other, and so they are together in hopes of possibly being adopted as a pair.

They are neutered, have had FVRCP and rabies shots, and test negative for FIV/FeLV. Now they just need loving homes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cherry, a Merrifield Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
