Pete's Story...
Pete is a little cat with a big personality. He loves people, plays hard and snuggles intensely! He’s about 2-3 years old, and has gorgeous amber colored eyes that contrast with his thick gray tabby fur.

Walk carefully when Pete’s around, because he’ll follow you everywhere, and can even get underfoot! He likes to curl up on a lap, or next to someone sitting down, and wants to sleep on the bed with his people. He’s always ready with a loud purr when you scratch his head and cheeks, and stroke his lovely fur. And Pete always says “Thank you” with that great purr. He’ll talk to you too, in little chirps and mews.

Pete loves all sorts of toys. He’ll scurry and jump to chase a feather wand or a laser dot. He can also amuse himself stalking toy mice or knocking jingly balls across the floor. But he loves people so much that he’s a natural with interactive toys!

Pete was rescued from an alley in Washington, D.C. He was first seen coming to dinner with a managed colony of feral cats, so he must have lost his home and been very hungry – but when a Four Paws volunteer took a carrier to rescue him, he had disappeared! Three months later the little fellow showed up again, but now he was thin and sickly – he had terrible pneumonia! This time she got him to the vet immediately, and he was properly treated and recovered fully. Now, after several weeks in a foster home, he looks and feels wonderful. He was so small and thin, but now he’s filled out and is beautiful and healthy.

Pete is neutered, is up to date on vaccines, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pete, 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.
