Thumbkin's Info...

Thumbkin's Story...
When Thumbkin came to us in late December 2013 as a transfer from a hoarding situation, he was very ill, had tape worms, both of his eyes were infected and both knee caps were abnormally positioned. His eyes were found to require removal, and during a recheck, his left hip was found to have dysplasia. Thumbkin showed little sign of discomfort through all of this, and is a very friendly and playful cat. He shows no fear or hesitation when it comes to moving and is energetic despite his condition, and can jump and run with the best of cats! Thumbkin would love an active forever-home, but the potential for future joint problems requires special consideration. If you are interested and would like to learn more about Thumbkin, please speak to one of our adoption counselors. Thumbkin was born in July, 2013.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thumbkin, 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.
