Hershey's Story...
Hershey is a gorgeous tux with silky fur and a long, flirty tail! She is playful and adventurous, and super, super loving. She often takes breaks from her play to jump on your lap and say hi. She happily sleeps nestled against you, whether on your chest, in the crook of your arm, or between your feet. Hershey has lots of personality. She’s pretty fearless and kind of a tomboy. If she wants attention, she’ll stand up and grab your leg. She likes to carry toys around and may even gift you with them. She loves other cats and is persistent in making friends with them. She doesn’t mind her canine foster sisters and would probably be fine with a dog. Overall, she is a cheerful, happy spirit with lots of confidence and love!

From Hershey: “My foster mom says my family is looking for me. Is that you? I sure would like to have a family of my own to love. I have so much love and joy to give – you NEED me! Maybe you can adopt me with my sister Lolly! She’s lots of fun too!”

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Hershey really needs a playmate in her forever home…and then they can get to play, and snuggle while you're not home. Check out our Pick A Pair page to see if her sibling is still available. If there is already another playful cat or kitten in your house, that would work out too…she already proved he is great at making friends!

You can meet Hershey at Wilmette Pet, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Hershey’s ACTUAL date of birth is 6/20/15. Her adoption fee of $135 includes her vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hershey, a Mt. Prospect Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
