Rocky-$75 - WAITING 400+ DAYS's Story...
* PURRS HAS MERGED WITH MAGNIFICENT MUTTS & MEOWS!! TO SEE ALL OUR CURRENT CATS, PLEASE LOOK UNDER OUR NEW NAME! *

Call me and I come running. Hi, I’m ROCKY. I purr all the time, follow you thru the house, and happily sleep with you. I meow in little ‘chirps,’ like to jump for toys, love sleeping in warm spots, and LOVE to be brushed. It makes me purr and make happy faces, and my tongue sticks out. I’m VERY inquisitive, alert and observant – a great watch cat! Great with a scratch post too. Super friendly, I am not at all shy, and I noticeably perk up when I recognize someone. I lived on the streets of Chicago and was found with the lower half of my body shaved as if I had recently had surgery. No one claimed me. I have battle scars, was ear-tipped, and I’m strong and very fit. My green eyes are deep-set, so they are hard to see in photos. I’ve been waiting for a forever home for THIRTEEN MONTHS. Several of those months were in a foster home, where I behaved purr-fectly. When I get stressed, I over-groom and then I have bald spots and no one wants me. A store cage stresses me. I am afraid of most cats and all dogs, and young kids are too much for me. I will be happiest in a calmer, quieter home. Amazingly affectionate and a true SWEETheart, I am an AWEsome kitty. If you’ve got the ‘right’ home, let’s meet!

** ROCKY is estimated to be 5. His adoption fee is just $75 because he's been waiting over a year for his forever home. Come see him at the Naperville Petco (348 S. Rt. 59)! Walk-in Adoption Hours are 1-4:00 every Saturday and Sunday -- no appointment needed.

** All our cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV tested, wormed, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky-$75 - WAITING 400+ DAYS, a Hillside 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 Hillside, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Hillside.

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