Rocko's Info...

Rocko's Story...
Rocko is a big & handsome 4 year old kitty boy. He is super sweet and seeks out attention. He adores people and will come to you to be petted and loved. He is easy going and fine with other laid back and friendly cats. He is a gentle giant making him a suitable companion for homes with young children too.

Rocko ended up at a kill shelter after he was found as a stray. Based on his size and friendliness, we would have to guess that he was an abandoned pet. Rocko will need an adopter that can control his diet and get him some exercise so that he can shed a few pounds in time for bikini season.

Rocko is neutered, up to date with vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV & Feline Leukemia. He also has perfect litter box manners.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocko, 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.
