Meow! My name is Faith
I am already spayed, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 773-784-2332.

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.
Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.
At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.
Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
* A photo I.D.
* A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill).
* If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats.
* All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
