Facts about Juno

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
Are you looking for a cat who is stunningly beautiful, fun and affectionate? Look no further! Juno is a playful and loving girl full of purrsonality. We think she has the look of a Siberian cat (Google it!) with amazing coloring - her coat has every color that cats come in. Juno is not exactly a lap cat, but she does love attention, and will take as much gentle petting, kisses on her forehead, and scratching around the ears as you'll offer. She is very social with people and she won't hide when the doorbell rings or someone new walks in. You'll often find her sweetly grooming herself or keeping busy by batting things around on the floor (see video).

Juno is adamant about letting dogs she doesn't know get too close to her. She doesn't back off and will swat to teach them who's boss. She has gotten more comfortable with the very respectful dogs in her current foster home and doesn't feel the need to display this behavior anymore. While she is normally mellow and not demanding, she is indeed playful and wants to be "engaged". Her foster home feels she will be happiest in an active home, or at least in a home with someone who isn't away from the house working all day. She'd be great with gentle kids who know how to "be" with a cat and/or with adults who will take the time to interact and play with her. And while she'd do well if she were the only cat in her new home, she may be able to work things out with a confident male cat.

You can check Juno out in this video As you can see, Juno likes to eat. Her current foster home has managed to get down by 1/2 pound or so, but anyone adopting her should continue to feed her only a few times a day in measured amounts.

Juno’s estimated date of birth is 1/4/2013. Her adoption fee of $115 includes her vet exam, rabies and distemper vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
