Taco's Story...
Taco, an extremely sweet and gentle dude, will absolutely sate your kitty hunger! He was originally abandoned on our porch five years ago along with over twenty other cats, and aside from being stressed upon check in and testing positive for FIV*, this long-haired kitty was in pretty good shape (all things considered). He was adopted out within his first year here and has spent these past five years in a home. Sadly, the adopter has faced personal crises and was no longer able to care for Taco, so he has found his way back here again. He is understandably a little sad and very confused, but nevertheless he has been a good trooper through all of this and is very deserving and ready for a new loving home. He would do best in a home with a buddy! Taco would love a confident adopter to take care of him but also depends on a cat companion for security and comfort.

*Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) causes a weakening of the immune system in cats. It's often compared to human HIV, but FIV is not transferable to humans or other species. It is also difficult to transfer to other sterilized cats, and we believe that mixed FIV and non-FIV households can work if managed properly. If kept indoors in a stress-free environment, with regular medical care and high-quality nutrition, most FIV+ cats live long and healthy lives. Tree House staff can help answer your questions to see if an FIV+ cat is the right choice for you. FIV+ cats adopted from Tree House are eligible for a lifetime veterinary-care plan that includes a free annual exam and discounted treatments.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Taco, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Longhair 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 Domestic Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
