Jake's Story...
Jake is a gorgeous, healthy, friendly, snuggly and kissable, golden-eyed, two-year-old, brown tabby cat looking for a new loving home. Jake purrs as soon as you pet him. A cat-lover in Chicago caught him in a feral trap and had him neutered. She thought he was a wild cat, but when she went to let him back outside after his surgery Jake rolled on his back and began to purrrrrrr. So, she brought him back inside to find him a wonderful new home. Jake is a happy lap cat. He’s content to be a snuggle bug, rolling over for belly rubs and lots of love. Jake is an extremely handsome doll or a cat, very healthy, neutered, and up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines. Jake has tested positive for the fiv virus which is not a big deal. The fiv virus is transferred to other cats through deep bite wounds and sterilized cats typically don’t fight. To meet and possibly adopt Jake, please contact his foster mom Alicia at aliciaobando@sbcglobal.net or 773-430-2812. His adoption fee of $50 supports rescued pets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, 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.
