Binx's Story...
This charming kitty is Binx! This delightful guy loves nothing more than to watch all the comings and goings around him. He's three years old, and he arrived at ACL as a stray. Binx enjoys being with people, but he prefers being petted rather than sitting on a lap. He's kind of a lazybones, and he just wants a place to chill out and watch the world go by. Binx is positive for a virus called FIV that can be transmitted to other cats in very specific circumstances. Cats with FIV live long, healthy, normal lives with no special medical care, but we do currently advise they be the only cats in the household or they join a household with other FIV+ cats. Binx is great with other kitties, so perhaps you can consider adopting one of his FIV+ friends, too! Binx would prefer a new home that's not too busy where he can continue to lounge about with his new family and not worry about too much commotion. He's good with children of all ages.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Binx, a Oak Park 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 Oak Park, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Oak Park.

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