Spot's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Spot's Story...
Spot is an approximately 1-2 year old male neutered domestic short hair cat that was brought to the Hyde Park Animal Hospital by some young boys who saw him get hit by a car. As a result of the accident, Spot suffered trauma to his spinal cord. He has decreased use of both of his back legs but this does not stop Spot from motoring all over our hospital! He will probably always walk a little “funny” but Spot will make a great new cat for someone (with the added benefit that although he can jump down off of things he won’t be able to jump up on your counters!). He uses his litter box great and is so loving and affectionate. He likes to “coo” as people walk past his cage and loves to sit on the doctor’s laps while they work on the computer. Spot is up to date on vaccines and ready to find a loving home!

Spot is being fostered at the Hyde Park Animal Hospital and we are helping find him the best of forever homes. Let us know at if you would like to meet him!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spot, 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.
