Mendocino's Story...
This guy warms up pretty quickly, both to people and other cats. Offer your hand and watch him wander over to you for a petting, or lie next to you. Once he's hanging out near you, give him any stuffed toy and he'll keep you entertained for hours, running around after it and any other cats who might join in the fun. And if you're wondering how his day is going, just ask - you'll get purrs if he's content, squeaks if he's hungry. He's a real chatterbox once you get to know him! Mendocino and his brothers Malibu and Monterey were born June 1, 2016.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mendocino, 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.
