Meow! My name is Jester
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
An April Fools Day arrival, Jester is still waiting for that special someone! He is a handsome, exotic looking, black and white fellow with cool markings - sometimes referred to as a "scarecrow" cat. He's no joke, though! Estimated to be 3 years old, he is a sweet boy and enjoys being petted once he feels comfortable with you, but it takes him a little while to warm up to new people and he can be a little skittish at first, so he would probably do best in a quieter home. At his current foster home, Wilmette Pet Center, he loves to playfully interact with kittens so he would probably be fine in a home with another friendly cat. However, he would prefer that dogs keep their distance.
You can meet Jester at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, during store hours 7 days a week (call 847-251-6750 to let the staff know when you'll be there to meet him so they make sure he's in his cage waiting for you. Otherwise, he has run of the store and may be snoozing on top of a stack of kibble bags or another little nook conducive for a cat nap.)
Jester's adoption fee is $115 and includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, (distemper combo), rabies vaccination, FeLv & FIV test (neg.), deworming, neuter and microchip.

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.
ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.
ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.
ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.
ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.
ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.
Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org
Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.
How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
