Gonzo & Kermit's Story...
Gonzo (orange tabby w/ white) and Kermit (white w/ orange tabby) are kitten brothers who were born around April/May 2012 and rescued with their 3 other siblings from a Walmart garden center. Both are absolute sweethearts and will be very shy at first but will come out of their shells to give (and receive!) lots of love once they know that their new human friends are good people.

Gonzo is the most shy of his siblings (and the smallest!) and is super adorable. His sweet, timid demeanor makes you want to go out of your way to pet him, and he does like to be petted once he knows you are safe. He is a very playful little guy and makes the funniest little noises whenever he jumps, starts to run, or changes directions. He loves to chase and wrestle with his siblings and to play with toys. He is usually the instigator of the playing, chasing, and wrestling, and he gets along with all the kitties that he meets very well.

Kermit is the biggest of his siblings and is the protector of the pack. When these kittens were first rescued he was the first to sniff out the humans and to stand in between as a shield for his siblings. The bravest of the group, he warmed up to his people friends very quickly and realized that sleeping on the bed with them is the best thing ever (well, maybe second to eating!) and likes to chase feet and play on the blankets. He also *loves* to be petted and will take in as much petting as you are willing to give. He also likes to share his love by chewing very gently on your fingers. Kermit gets along with other kitties quite well and is very laid back, though open to playing with his siblings when they want to chase and wrestle.

Both boys are neutered, current on vaccines, good with the litter box, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. They are a bonded pair that needs to be adopted together, though consideration will be given to pairing either of them with their brother Animal or playmate Crush.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gonzo & Kermit, 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.
