Conga's Info...

Conga's Story...
Conga's my name and I'm just sitting around waiting for someone to adopt me. In the meantime, let me explain how I got here, what a story!

A couple of months ago I found myself lost, very hungry and living outside which was very scary. Luckily I found a house in the neighborhood that had a deck I could squeeze under to keep safe at night, but, this didn't help my growling tummy.

One day I decided to look through the sliding glass door of this house and whoa, there were five cats laying around looking full, warm, and happy. This seemed like the place for …food …food …food. So I kept coming around looking in that door, until finally the humans in there saw me and how hungry I was and came out with a big bowl of food that I gobbled down lickity split. I gave it my best meow and they brought even more.

I couldn't believe it, everyday they fed me and everyday they sat waiting for me to finish. Little by little I warmed up to them, so when I finished eating I would go over to get my pets. It felt so good I purred and purred. It was nice to have someone care about me. Pretty soon I had a homemade bed and a makeshift kitty condo so if it rained I wouldn't get wet, plus I could get some privacy when I slept.

So I stuck around the deck for awhile and continued to eat and grow into a strong young kitty. I really was happy there, but the time came when the people knew I needed a forever home safe from the cold of the winter. My last few days in Woodbridge, VA I learned to sit on their laps while purring away. They said I was going to be a lovey dovey cat, whatever that means. The nice people gave me my sleeping blankie when I left, as I was really scared. The day before Thanksgiving I went to live with my foster until I get adopted. It was wonderful to lay inside with my blankie & just sleep without any fear. Yeah, isn't that what cats are suppose to do anyway?

Adopting me will bring you lots of joy. When I get to know you, I'll be your lovey dovey boy, purring all the time, did I mention I like to talk too. With me around you'll be a lot calmer too! I also get along with other cats.

Thanks for reading, please give me a home! Love, Conga.

Conga is approximately 1 1/2 years old. He is neutered, has tested negative for FIV & Feline Leukemia, and is up to date on vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Conga, 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.
