Baryshnikov's Story...

Baryshnikov, born around 2008, was found in November 2010 wandering around Gage Park looking for affection and a meal. His rescuer named him Ballerina because he was so long and lean (and his rescuer thought he was a girl). When our clinic discovered he was actually a boy, we named him after the Russian ballet dancer and heartthrob Mikhail Baryshnikov.

His flawless tabby-and-white coat makes Baryshnikov quite a handsome fellow. A curious and playful guy, he's always up for exploring. He'll bask under your attention, and you'll love showering him with affection! Baryshnikov is also quite playful, and loves spending time chasing after toys and hanging out with other young playful cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baryshnikov, 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.
