Moose's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Moose's Story...
I was found cold and hungry living under a shed behind the Moose Lodge in Fairfax. I am what they call a “CH” (cerebellar hypoplasia) kitty. That means that my biological mom was sick before I was born and now my back legs don’t work exactly right, but other than that I am PURFECT. My condition will not worsen and may even improve slightly with Play Therapy. If you can overlook the fact that I “wobble” when I walk and if you want a kitty who is EXTREMELY AFFECTIONATE, then I’m your kitty. I am told that people actually seek out CH kitties because of their affectionate and goofy nature.

There is nothing I would rather do than cuddle up with you and purr, purr, purrr. I can get around just fine, although my foster mom says I don’t walk, I DANCE. I always use my litter box and I am not a picky eater. I would probably do best in a home that is carpeted with no stairs. I do fall down sometimes so carpeting not only gives me better footing, but a little cushion when I stumble. I am fine with dogs as long as they respect my space, but I am not particularly good with other cats yet. Foster mom is working with me on that.

I am a young neutered male. I am about 2 - 4 years old. I am up to date on my kitty vaccines and tested negative for LELV/FIV and Toxoplasmosis.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Moose, 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.
