Tipper's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tipper's Story...
Tipper was brought in as a stray and is only about a year old. He is missing the tips of his ears, possibly due to frostbite last winter. Too bad he wasn't rescued sooner, but in Tipper's case it actually gives him some charm and swag - like it's hip to be tipped! In spite of a rough start, he's a sweet guy who turns into a "purr machine" when he's being petted. He likes to explore his environment, take cat naps and then seek out one of his foster humans for some attention - he loves having his chin scratched and his ears massaged. Tipper is often off exploring his environment and he loves chasing after the laser light.

While not exactly a lap cat, Tipper has a pretty even balance of independence and need for TLC, and we think he would enjoy the position of "top cat in the house", so if you are only looking for one cat, this might be the boy for you. However, he'll likely do okay with another energetic and outgoing feline at home who could use a companion. We also tested him with a dog and his reaction was "So?"... thus we think he'd do just fine with a dog in the house.

Tipper's adoption fee of $115 includes: exam, distemper combo vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), rabies vaccination, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tipper, a Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

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