Facts about Blue

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Blue is a darling 2 year old male cat that is a petite 9lbs and is the picture of health. He is living in a foster home. Blue was surrendered to a traditional shelter and has a bumpy road in his short life. Blue appears to have come from a muli cat home and didn't have as much human interaction as he needed. It has taken a while for him to warm up but he a very sweet boy who loves: to eat, and have treats play and run around, he has lots of energy. His favorite toys are string toys and he enjoys being around people but as of now prefers not to be touched.

He can be a little startled by loud or sudden noises (as he settles this gets better). Hands can be a little scary to him and if he is approached too quickly he may shy away from you. When you are gentle and slow he will sniff and will accept slow pets. We are working on this with him and in time he will adjust, he has progressed so much that I have no doubt he will settle and trust more.

Blue loves to have a place to be his own. He loves to have a place that is higher up so he can watch the actions going on in the room. Blue has been introduced to one of our male cats. He can happily coexist with other cats with proper introductions. We have not introduced our dogs as one is bigger and I think it would be too much for him at this point, but a respectful dog may be ok with slow introductions.

Blue needs a home that will be very patient with him. He needs calm and lots of care with patience, and slow introduction to other animals, people and noises. If at all possible Blue would do best where he can have a lot of space to play, a good "catified" home or possibly have access to a cat safe outdoor area part of the day. He has a lot of energy and is very curious and in the right home he will surely blossom! If you would like to meet Blue, please email

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
