Bolt's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Bolt's Story...
Bolt came to us from Chicago Animal Control along with her sisters Gatlin aka TK and Andrew DeGrasse. We met her when we were at the shelter picking up Marvel, a MCP hospice case, and while we were checking out, lil Bolt escaped from her cage in the shelter's lobby and ran around for a good ten minutes while all the staff chased her. Then once they finally wrangled her back into her cage....she escaped AGAIN. Any animal with that much spunk was clearly coming with us to rescue, along with her sisters. Bolt is a wild child, who isn't too sure that people are to be trusted, and spends her days climbing anything she can, hiding from her foster human and being a kitten. She is 7 weeks old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bolt, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Chicago.

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