Patches's Story...
Patches is a playful, sweet, handsome boy born July 12, 2012. His mom was rescued from the streets just a couple of weeks before she gave birth to 7 kittens! He can be a bit shy at first, but after settling in will come looking for your companionship. Although he’s got an easy going temperament, he’ll sometimes get spooked and hide under the bed. But he’ll quickly pop his head out to see what all the fuss was about. He loves to sit on your lap or cuddle next to you while you’re watching TV and get lots of scratches behind the ears. He’ll even sleep next to you at night if you let him. The laser light is his favorite toy and don’t forget the catnip – he loves to roll around in it. This wonderful kitty gets along great with dogs, friendly cats and children. This sweetie would make an ideal family pet.

Patches is neutered, tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV and is current on his vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patches, 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.
