Penny's Story...
Big fan of: Being affectionate. Penny is sweet and loving and although she takes a bit of time to warm up to new people, once she feels comfortable around someone they are in for a treat! Penny loves to curl up with her humans in bed at night and will keep close to her companions during the daytime too.

Not a big fan of: Waiting so long to find her ‘furever’ home! Pretty Penny was abandoned in early 2013 and has been patiently waiting for her big day to get here—the day when she will be adopted into a loving home and become a ‘purrrmanent’ family member!

A little more… Penny has spent time in several foster homes during her stay at PAWS, all of which unanimously agree that she is low-maintenance, sweet, and social. She loves curling up on fleece blankets, and uses her scratching post and litter box like a champ! Penny gets along very well with other cats as long as they give her space when she is in the mood for some alone time. She also lived with a dog in one of her foster homes – the dog left her alone, which was fine with her!

Dream home: Although she is independent, Penny would love a home where she can have another kitty companion to play and snuggle with when she is in the mood. Penny would make an easy, low-maintenance companion and she just wants someone to give her a chance… can that someone be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
