Desmond & Daniel's Story...
Daniel and Desmond are full of loud purrs and both love hugs, and always go soft in your arms. They just love to be held and purr, and are very gentle little fellows. Desmond wants tummy rubs and might even roll off the couch stretching out for more. Daniel purrs the moment you even look at him, and both are very affectionate. They also enjoy chasing toys and kicking at big stuffed mice. They like playing with people and interactive toys such as dangly things and chasing balls. But also they love playing with adult cats, and have lots of fun with their older “brother and sister.”

The two little kittens were abandoned outside in Washington, DC on October 10th, when they were only 11 weeks old! When first spotted, they were so hungry they ran up to a plate of food meant for feral cats. A couple of nights later, they were happy to be rescued by a 4Paws volunteer. The little guys were very frightened in the alley and ran hither and thither, and hid under cars. But they quickly remembered hugs and love, and began the loud purrs as soon as they came inside and nestled in the volunteer’s arms. Next they remembered soft beds, and jumped up on the couch for a comfy stretch and a nap! Daniel even found a little plush cat bed and pulled it into place for a nest – no more sleeping on cold mud and gravel, or wishing they were inside. Through 4Paws they will find a loving home where they will be cared for and appreciated forever – maybe your home?

Desmond is black; Daniel is black and white spotted. They have had their kitten shots, and test negative for FIV/FeLV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Desmond & Daniel, 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.
