Mick's Story...
While he's not a real talkative kitty, this strong but silent type definitely likes to be pet. Mick would probably prefer to be an only cat, soaking up sunshine from his prime spot on a soft cat bed and ignoring every kind of toy you'll buy him. He prefers the company of his favorite hoo-mans to any of that other stuff, and will want to hang out with (or just around) you. He's got all the chill, so if you're low-key and laid back too, come meet your new BFF. MIck was born in 2008 and is front paw declawed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mick, 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.
