Cara's Story...
With gray spots on her front legs that almost make a heart when she’s sitting, it’s not surprising that this sweet, gentle girl is full of love. In fact, Cara will give you a little meow and touch you lightly with her paw if she feels she’s not getting her share of attention. She literally falls for you during a good cheek rub rolling onto her side in pure joy. Cara loves to play with toy mice tossing them up in the air, any sort of string toy, and chasing the laser pointer. When playtime is over Cara seeks out a cozy spot for a nap – whether on your lap or burrowing under a blanket, she will contentedly purr herself to sleep. She is shy at first with strangers, but comes around fairly quickly for food and attention. Cara is white with gray spots, has an adorable gray mask over her eyes, a gray striped tail, and the cutest freckled nose that you’ve ever seen. Cara was born July 5, 2016.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cara, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat 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.
