Dexter's Story...
Dexter is a handsome 4 year old kitty who was rescued from animal control after his owner dumped him there due to allergies. This poor boy did not take being dumped very well and was very unhappy. Given time in a foster home, he opened up and showed what a great kitty he really is!

If he's not exploring every nook and cranny of the foster's apartment, he is sitting for hours on the window sill looking out to the great outdoors. Also, he has these crazy kitten moments where he will tear around the apartment after a toy. He also has his calm moments where he will snuggle right up to you and purr you to sleep.

He's not in love with the foster's dog but tolerates her. They can be left alone together and are fine and have even been caught sleeping on the same bed.

Dexter is a sweet guy who just has some attachment issues. Therefore, he needs someone who will understand how upsetting it can be to lose everything you've known and will be willing to give him the time he needs to adjust to his new home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, 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.
