Johnny's Story...
Johnny was born to a very young, inexperienced and underweight mom at CACC. She had a hard time taking care of him and his siblings. A group of volunteers saved him by getting him out of CACC where he was not doing well and bringing him to a new home where his adopted moms took better care of him. He is named after the man who made sure he got to the volunteer quickly because if he was in CACC another night he would likely have died. He has been thriving at his new home. There he also met Milo, another orphan who was the same age as he is. He and Milo play all the time and would love to have them adopted together.
Johnny is very social because he was also bottle fed so he is very attached to people. His foster family calls him a miracle kitten because he is the only one of his litter that survived. He loves to be played with and cuddled. He will follow you all around the house. He is still very tiny because but he has a big heart.
Johnny gets along well with other cats, dogs and children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Johnny, a Palatine American Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Palatine, or seeking a American Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Palatine.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palatine 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 Palatine 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 American Shorthair breeders who help with American Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
