Penelope's Story...
Penelope and Georgette are two sweet sisters who were rescued from a high-kill shelter. They were born Jan 2013.

Both girls are extremely social and outgoing. They adore being petted and snuggling with anyone who is nearby. They show their appreciation by giving head butts and purring loudly. They love toys and have yet to discover one that they don’t enjoy playing with. Penelope is the smaller one. She is lighter gray with more white. She tends to be more cuddly. Georgette, the darker gray tabby is definitely the explorer of the two. She is fascinated by new things and takes the lead on all adventures.

The two girls are very bonded. When not wrestling and playing together, they are curled up in a ball sleeping or grooming each other. Therefore, they need to be adopted together. They are fine with other cats and dogs.

Both girls are current on their vaccines, have tested negative for FIV/FeLV and are spayed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penelope, 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.
