Khana's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Khana's Story...
If you want the love of 5 cats, but only have room in your life for one - try Khana! This kitty can pack a wallop of love and affection into one petite kitty body. Khana is a little over a year old, and photos really don't do this gorgeous torbie girl justice. She's majestic-looking, just like her namesake, the tiger Shere Khan. Khana has been in a foster home for awhile now, and her foster parents thinks she's absolutely tops. They say she's a super affectionate, super playful, super lovable lady. Here's her foster mom's assessment of this girl: "She's very affectionate, particularly in the morning. She will sit next to, or on, you and start purring so you know she's ready for you to pet her. She is extremely playful. We taught her how to play fetch with the small toy mice, and she'll play for hours just fetching that back-and-forth. She likes the wands, too, and she especially likes the laser pointer. She also really enjoys her sleep. She's happy to have a spot by the window where she can hang out and catch the breeze. Khana can be quite clingy and likes to be around people. She will greet you when you come in and hang around for a while, and she follows you into every room to make sure you're not having fun without her!" Khana would do well in a home with kids 10 and up who know when she needs her space. She likes to chase things, so no small mammals like guinea pigs, please! Khana has yet to meet a dog, but she may do well with a submissive one who doesn't mind being bossed around a bit. Khana has tested positive for a virus called feline leukemia virus, so she'll need to be an only cat. She really doesn't mind, though - she wants all your love for herself! FelV doesn't have any ongoing treatment, but it will shorten Khana's life span from that of a cat that is FelV negative. Please don't let her diagnosis dissuade you from meeting her, though - Khana is a once in a lifetime cat, regardless of what her blood test says!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Khana, 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.
