Charlie's Story...
Charlie is a charming brown tabby kitten with great stripes. He is about 16 weeks old and SO playful! He is the only non-orange kitten out of his brothers (there are three of them). He and his brothers were brought into the city pound as orphans and quickly became sick. Once rescued, they quickly recovered and turned into crazy purr monsters! Charlie is the most playful of the group. He loves to attack toys, to climb around, to jump onto imaginary specks, and to wrestle with his brothers. He can be shy in new situations and is looking for an understanding guardian who can help him successfully transition to a new home. Once he warms up, he's as sweet as can be!

Charlie's adoption fee of $125 includes his neuter, deworming, general exams, FIV and FeLV virus testing (all negative!), age-appropriate shots, and microchip and registration. The cost of these services is way, way more if you were to try to give proper medical care at the vet. If he is adopted together with another of our kittens, the adoption fee is $200 for the pair. All of our kittens must be adopted in pairs or into a home with another young cat. We do this because it is best for them (and for their adopters!).

Our rescue group is foster based, meaning kitties live in homes with volunteers. This is great for the cats, because they get a ton of socialization and attention, and we get to know them well, but it also means we don't have a shelter for people to drop by and visit. Instead, we ask that people complete applications, and then we can arrange meet and greets with the kitties.

To meet this playful kittens, please email Remember, adopt don't shop!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten 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.
