Fernanda's Story...
Hi! I’m Fernanda!

I know they say I’m a senior kitty but don’t let my age fool you! I’ve still got a lot of spunk left for someone my age! I recently spent a few months in a foster home and now I’m back at the Adoption Center and ready to find a ‘purrrmanent’ home! My foster family said I loved to play and enjoyed playing with fishing pole-type toys the most. I enjoyed meeting family members that came over to visit and although I’m not a lap cat, I have been known to snuggle up with my human companions from time to time!

I am an independent girl who likes to do my own thing but still keep tabs on what my human companions are doing too. My foster mom said I loved to sneak into her dresser drawers for a quick catnap—she even caught me opening them and climbing in! I’m good with grooming and don’t mind being held to be brushed or have my nails trimmed. I’m a smart girl who enjoys seeking out affection and attention on my own terms.

I know I’ll make a great companion, I just need someone to give me a chance! Could that someone be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fernanda, 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.
