Ivy's Story...
Big fan of: Playtime! Ivy is a bundle of energy and needs lots of playtime to practice her hunting skills. Laser pointers and feather wands are a favorite for this rambunctious feline!

Not a big fan of: Being picked up. Like many cats, Ivy prefers to do things on her own terms. She is a curious kitty who would rather spend her time exploring her surroundings than being carried around.

A little more: Ivy recently spent two months in a foster home and gave her foster parents a glimpse into her purrrrsonality. It took some time for her to adjust and become comfortable, so her new family will need to be patient with her. She has quirky habits, such as lounging in the bathtub watching the water drip!f

Dream home: This young girl would love a home where she can play play play! Since she can play bite when she gets excited, it is recommended that she not live with small children. Ivy will need plenty of toys and activities to keep her busy. She would do well with another young, playful cat or dog. Could Ivy be the one you’ve been searching for?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, 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.
