Facts about Jane

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Jane is a 6-year-old Calico who loves running water, being brushed, singing, and string toys. She currently lives with Maya. They can be adopted together or separately, although we would like Jane to have a kitty companion as she enjoys grooming and sleeping with other cats. She dislikes being picked up.

Jane is adored by all who meet her, and she warms up to new people just as easily. Originally a skittish alley cat who was mistaken for feral, she’s grown into a sweetheart who’s happiest curled up at the end of your bed or flinging a toy at your feet. She’s talkative, extremely playful, and gentle/submissive with other cats and even dogs; although she loves affection, she isn’t a lap cat and would prefer to sit side-by-side with you by a window. Jane is easy-going and would prefer a quieter household, but she is good with groups, other cats & dogs, and probably older children as well.

Please contact us at if you are interested in meeting Jane!

About Hyde Park Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Hyde Park Cats is a local, all volunteer group dedicated to helping stray and homeless cats in and around Chicago's Hyde Park. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and have had over 600 adoptions since our founding in 2008. See all our adoptable kitties on our webpage:

All of our cats are in loving foster homes, which means the cat you adopt will be familiar with the sounds, smells and movements of life in a home and accustomed to living with humans. He or she has been interacting on a daily basis with people who know this particular cat intimately, and the foster mom or dad can tell you all about the cat's individual personality, habits, preferences. You can't judge a cat by its cover! And while we can't predict the future or know everything about a cat, we can help you choose the cat who is right for you. We have an adoption application and an adoption fee, $95 for the adoption of one cat or $190 for a pair. This fee goes towards covering their vet costs. All cats adopted out by us are neutered/spayed, micro-chipped, tested for FIV/FeLV, and treated with Revolution.
