Olive's Story...
Olive is a very sweet, gentle, playful and affectionate, one-year-old, golden-eyed tortoiseshell cat looking for a loving home. Olive is a complete honey of a cat who loves to play fetch with her toy mouse; she loves to snuggle on your lap or bird-watching through the window. She purrs like crazy and has the softest, glossiest fur coat. Olive is living in a foster home where she has been extremely well-behaved; she uses her litter box and scratching pad like a good girl. Olive is healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, and micro-chipped. She has tested positive for the feLV or feline leukemia virus. Though she shows no symptoms of the virus, she should live only with another with another feLV cat or a cat-friendly dog. The virus is not contagious to dogs or people. Her adoption fee of $65 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt, please contact her foster mom Renate at or 773-955-3004.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olive, 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.
