Pepito's Story...
This sweet-eyed gentleman came to us through our Community Cats program, and was cared for by one of our own Tree House staffers for a long time before making his way into our facilities alongside his bonded best buddy, Dandy. These two black and white cats are easy to tell apart: if Dandy is a slight yet stocky black cat with just a little white, then Pepito is a white cat with some black markings and a jutting manly chin. However, you don't need their looks to tell these two apart! He is one our FIV+* residents who lives in our Cypress Colony.Pepito is much more inquisitive than his counterpart; he is usually nearby looking to see what you are up to and waiting for some head scratches. These two truly gain comfort and confidence from one another, and would be wonderful, sweet additions to any home. Pepito was born in 2007.

*Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) causes a weakening of the immune system in cats. It's often compared to human HIV, but FIV is not transferable to humans or other species. It is also difficult to transfer to other sterilized cats, and we believe that mixed FIV and non-FIV households can work if managed properly. If kept indoors in a stress-free environment, with regular medical care and high-quality nutrition, most FIV+ cats live long and healthy lives. Tree House staff can help answer your questions to see if an FIV+ cat is the right choice for you. FIV+ cats adopted from Tree House are eligible for a lifetime veterinary-care plan that includes a free annual exam and discounted treatments.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pepito, 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.
