Tiddles's Story...
Breed: Grey & White Medium Hair
Gender: Female Spayed
Age: 11 years
Declawed: No

Howdy! I'm Tiddles, but some of my friends have nicknamed me Teddy. I'm a pretty and petite little 11-year-old girl, and I love to be brushed. I am an independent kitty, so if you're looking for companionship without being smothered every time you sit down, let's talk! Don't get me wrong, I like affection, but I am a princess so it is on my own terms. And I like to be near you and be petted, but I'm not really a "sit on the human" sort of cat. I'd really enjoy a quiet retired person or an adult who enjoys the peacefulness and gracefulness of having a cat to share a home with and have conversations with. Maybe you should come to the cat center and visit me!


Adoption fee is $75. All of our senior cats are spay/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and have tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia unless otherwise noted. They have tested negative for parasites. All cats have had a full geriatric exam upon entrance to Young at Heart, which includes a full geriatric blood work up. Dentals, lump removals, etc are all done whenever necessary. Any known medical conditions are fully disclosed, and adopters are provided with all medical records. Just like people, cats age, and geriatric conditions and other medical ailments may arise after adoption.

All cats are housed at the Petco in Lake Zurich IL courtesy of the Petco Foundation's grant to Young at Heart, at our small cageless adoption center at Best Friends Pet Care in Lincolnshire IL or in private foster homes within the Chicago area. We welcome out of state adopters that have stellar veterinary references, however we do not ship our sweet old kitties - you have to come here to meet them.

Thank you for considering a senior pet! Can't adopt? Please consider a donation to help us save more beautiful senior souls like these!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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