Faith's Info...

Faith's Story...

Faith came to Tree House in November 2009 after we got a call from DuPage Animal Control saying they'd found a stray cat with a Tree House microchip. It turned out that Faith had been spayed and released as part of our TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program at our Bucktown branch. It's a mystery how a presumed feral cat like Faith became so domesticated or how she ended up all the way out in DuPage County, 25 miles away from her home colony.

However she ended up here, she's a joy to have around the shelter! She's a completely adorable, adoptable, sweet cat with a soft tortoiseshell coat of fur. Our clinic staff estimates she was born in about 2003.

Faith resides at our Uptown headquarters, spending most of her time curled up under the sink in the first-floor bathroom. But watch out! She has a flair for the dramatic. When the mood strikes, she likes to go crazy with her special scratching post, rolling around and scrunching up and stretching out her whole body as she attacks the post. Silly kitty.

Faith also has a rather peculiar habit of growling at her tail. We've even heard her grumbling about her tail in her sleep. Clearly, she has some kind of score to settle with her tail. Besides these occasional episodes, she is docile and enjoys petting and being around people. She has suspected IBD and is being monitored for bowel problems.

Consider giving this lovable cat the forever home she was always meant to have. Our adoption counselors can arrange an introduction with Faith any day of the week! Just stop by our headquarters at 1212 West Carmen Avenue, email adoption@treehouseanimals.org or call 773-784-2332.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Faith, 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.
