Raspberry's Story...
Raspberry is a true love bug, she loves everyone! She is extremely friendly and affectionate, gentle, and trusting of all people. This wonderful kitty will come when you call, and roll around to have her tummy rubbed. She loves to play with people and other cats, and would make a great companion for someone who loves to give their cats lots of affection. Raspberry has always been around either her siblings or other cat friends, and will appreciate cat company when you aren’t home to dote on her!

Raspberry has an interesting past, and is so lucky to be rescued. She and her seven siblings, all black (!), were abandoned in late August in an alley in Washington, DC. The entire litter of super-friendly “teenage” cats, about 6 months old, were dropped off and left to fend for themselves! The kitties were heard crying from their hiding places before they were seen, under bushes and porches up and down the alley. They spent two days just crying loudly for people to save them from the scary outside world, desperately hoping to be taken home to safety. Finally they came out one by one, and neighbors fed them. 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! The Washington Humane Society shelter was full – the outcome would have been bad if they went there. But these lucky kitties are so great, the WHS lady called 4Paws and we went to the alley and took all seven of them in! The kitties were all thrilled to be rescued, and get the love they crave.

Raspberry loves her toy mice and balls, and will enjoy learning about new toys, especially interactive toys she can play with her new family, such as the laser light and feathers on a stick. But mostly she and her siblings love affection, and just crave love.

She’s spayed, had her FVRCP and rabies shots, and tests negative for FIV/FeLV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Raspberry, 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.
