Benedict's Story...
Benedict is a handsome cat with a regal name, and quite the story to tell! He came to us in November 2011, after - we can only presume - living outside for his first 3 years of life. It’s quite clear that this friendly guy deserves a cushy life indoors. Unfortunately, he came back to us in early February at no fault of his own, and he’s certainly wasted no time in getting re-acquainted to Tree House. This gentle giant loves nothing more than getting your attention and cuddling up next to you for a little snooze. If you’re looking for a calm, cuddly companion (for yourself or maybe for another cat of similar demeanor) - look no further, Benedict is the cat for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benedict, 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.
