Possum's Story...
The leader of the pack, Possum is smart and inquisitive and with her dauntless nature, she is always the first to go exploring. In fact, she is quite intent on breaking out of the room where they are kept so she can see what’s out there. Possum and her sister Ellie form the dynamic duo and warm up fairly quickly to strangers – especially when there’s food or a wand toy involved. She also loves a good cuddle session, and is one of the first to jump in your lap, purring contentedly while snuggled in your arms or on your chest. She frequently climbs onto your shoulders to get that much closer to you. She is mostly white with gray spots. Possum was born July 15, 2016.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Possum, 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.
