Petal's Story...
Samson and Petal are the ultimate pair of cats! They are both about 4 years old. They are sweet, playful, and super cuddlers, both with each other and with their humans. Petal (the black Siamese mix) is a lap cat who loves to talk and curl up in your lap when working on the computer or watching a movie.

Samson likes to cuddle, and although he tries to be a lap cat (a trait he has picked up from Petal), he is a bit big for it. His best cuddling is when you're laying down and he can curl up beside you under your arm. Samson is more like a dog in that he loves humans. Anyone who comes into your house he will be there to greet them and rub against them as if they were there just to see him.

Petal takes a little more time to warm up to someone but once she does, her sweet demeanor and gorgeous look will win anyone over. They love to chase each other around the house, hiding and trying to surprise one another, and occasionally they get into some kung-fu lovers' quarrels.

These two are very special cats, full of love and eager for human affection and attention. Samson doesn't mind being picked up, but Petal likes attention on her own terms. They are friendly with children and didn't have a problem when one dog came into their domain. These two really are very special cats.

Sampson and Petal and spayed/neutered, have tested negative for FIV & Feline Leukemia, and are up to date on their vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petal, 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.
