Gilbert's Story...
We'd like to introduce you to a very special little guy! Our Gilbert-on-the-Go is a typical adolescent; full of energy, playful and always ready for a play date, with humans and felines alike. You'd never know that Gilbert suffered a broken front leg at some earlier point in his young life. The fracture healed on its own, leaving Gilbert with limited use of this one limb. But that doesn't stop this very happy-go-lucky kitty, who has enthusiasm in spades, from enjoying his life! Gilbert would do best in a home that has another age appropriate feline who needs a buddy, as well as a home that keeps him busy, busy, busy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gilbert, 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.
