Facts about Paddington Bear

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Paddington Bear is a regal and handsome kitty who came to Tree House in March of 2016 from a foster. Paddy Bear (as his foster called him) is a super sweet, mellow boy who loves being around people. He adores cheek and chin pets and being brushed, but isn’t too fond of having his belly rubbed. He loves sitting next to people and snuggling up close, and he’ll start purring as soon as you start petting him! Paddington Bear is a chill cat who would do great either as a single cat in a home where he can get lots of love and attention, or with one or two other mellow cats who will give him space to do his own thing - his foster did mentioned that he enjoys having friends! Paddington Bear is FIV+ and will need to be on a high quality diet due to some occasional tummy issues and sensitive skin. His ideal home would be a place where he can relax and gaze out the window in the company of a human who gives him lots of pets and love!

*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.

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS

* A photo I.D.
* A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill).
* If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats.
* All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
