Tigger's Story...
Tigger Skeets is a roly poly, 13-pound, 13-year-old, male front-declawed Van Pattern cat with one blue eye and one gold eye looking for a loving guardian.

Tigger was found inside a Calumet City trailer when his 65-year-old human mom passed away. He was living with another cat and a rabbit. The other cat has recently passed away as did the rabbit.

When I brought Tigger home, the poor guy was in mourning for his mom. He just laid in a litter box howling sadly for three days without eating or drinking. Luckily he bounced back after that.

Tigger has adjusted to living with my other cats, but he could just as happily be the one and only cat in your life. He really doesn’t like my dogs at all. And, I think he’s just fine with rabbits.

Tigger loves people so much that he rubs up against you and follows you around lovingly chatting the whole time. When you love on him, he rolls on his back for a tummy rub. He can only take so much tummy rubbing so you have to watch out for a little nip. He unfortunately has a habit of biting people when they don’t expect it.

Tigger uses his litter box like a good boy. Due to his roly-poly-ness, he certainly doesn’t get up on your countertops.

Tigger is a healthy senior, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, virus-tested and he even had blood-work and a urinalysis done. His adoption fee of $50 benefits rescued pets. He is currently living with me in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. To meet and possibly adopt Tigger, please contact me at or 773-777-2891.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tigger, a Chicago Turkish Van cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Turkish Van for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Turkish Van 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 Turkish Van breeders who help with Turkish Van rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
