Facts about Josephine Baker

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Although shy at first, Josephine Baker is quickly warming up to her foster home. She continues to become more and more trusting and is becoming a snuggly lap cat. She is also really playful and has a lot of energy when she gets going. She leaps after balls on strings and her ‘cat dancer’ and regularly vanquishes her stuffed mice and any socks that may have been left on the floor.

While she’s really coming out of her shell in some ways, she is skittish around strangers and mostly hides when there are new people in the house. We think she’ll need to go to a home with people who will give her time to adjust on her own schedule since she’s very much her own cat and really wants to come to you on her own terms and in her own time.

All in all, she’s a super cat and would make a really great pet for anyone who is willing allow her the time and space to relax and adjust. Write to us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com to meet her!

About Hyde Park Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Hyde Park Cats is a local, all volunteer group dedicated to helping stray and homeless cats in and around Chicago's Hyde Park. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and have had over 600 adoptions since our founding in 2008. See all our adoptable kitties on our webpage: http://hydeparkcats.org/adopt/

All of our cats are in loving foster homes, which means the cat you adopt will be familiar with the sounds, smells and movements of life in a home and accustomed to living with humans. He or she has been interacting on a daily basis with people who know this particular cat intimately, and the foster mom or dad can tell you all about the cat's individual personality, habits, preferences. You can't judge a cat by its cover! And while we can't predict the future or know everything about a cat, we can help you choose the cat who is right for you. We have an adoption application and an adoption fee, $95 for the adoption of one cat or $190 for a pair. This fee goes towards covering their vet costs. All cats adopted out by us are neutered/spayed, micro-chipped, tested for FIV/FeLV, and treated with Revolution.
