Pippin's Story...
While mellow Pippin is on our waiting list, he is being fostered by his finder. He is about one-year old and seeking a forever companion who will enjoy having a loving side-kick. Pippin sounds like the perfect guest: his finder reports that he

• is a PERFECT housemate – neat, doesn’t tear furniture, polite and social
• enjoys touching his nose to yours and LOVES to get kisses on his head and nose
• has stunning “mascara eyes” and a huge freckle on his pink nose tip, a silvery grey coat with a bright white underbelly and paws
• rolls around in bliss on anything soft and comfy (definitely NOT an outdoor kind of guy)
• is very quiet and will quietly talk when he’s looking for you
• likes to hang out on the desk while you work at home
• loves to eat, but being near someone who cares for him seems to trump food!
• is curious, and a little shy, but seems interested in interacting with other cats (although perfectly fine with human-only companionship, too)
• is a ham when it comes to taking pictures of him.

If you’d like to foster or adopt this mellow and well behaved guy, please let us know at!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippin, 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.
