Washington's Story...
Washington takes his name seriously, especially when he is playing with a ball. He will let his brothers know whose ball it is. ;-) He is a very friendly kitten and loves other cats. He loves to let you rub his belly and purrs with affection letting you know that he is a happy guy. Washington is gentle and can be a little shy, for a minute or two, before he starts chasing, playing and wrestling with his brothers.

12-year old Max had this to say of his foster kitten, Washington:
“I love Washington because he purrs so loud when you scratch him and he makes funny noises when he won’t let his brothers play with his toy.”

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can get to play, and snuggle while you're not home Check out our Pick A Pair page to see if one of his brothers is still available, or choose another one of our playful cats or kittens.

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, we will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and we follow their recommendations for single placements.

Washington’s estimated date of birth is 7/3/16. His adoption fee of $135 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Washington, a Mt. Prospect Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
