Nellie's Story...
**Nellie is located in Yorkville, IL**


Nellie is a first time mama of 3 kittens and is about 1-1 ½ yrs old. She came to us as a stray on the streets of Chicago when the cold winter hit. We didn’t know she was expecting kittens until her belly started to grow. Nellie is a very playful active cat who needs to be in a furr-ever home where she is the only pet or with one of her kittens. She had 3 kittens on Feb 2nd Ground Hogs Day (Oreo, Miracle, and Cookies) She loves people and loves to cuddle, she is a talker and will talk to you and keep you company, loves kids but is not happy with other pets in the home. Nellie is a great companion for anyone as long as she is the only pet or with one of her kittens.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Palatine.

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