Meow! My name is Mystery
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This gentle and affectionate girl is a 5 year old gorgeous black beauty - her pictures don't do her justice. Mystery is a playful, agile cat who loves to play with her fishing pole and, while playing, does backflips and stands on her hind legs. When she's not playing, she can be found sleeping in a cozy place. She loves to chat in the morning while waiting for her breakfast, and waits by the door when you come home. Mystery likes attention and will share her attention with as many people as she can get.
Mystery is an Adopt-A-Pet alumni, having been adopted out three years ago. She has now come back to us as her owner is no longer able to care for her. When we originally had her, she was tolerant of both children and dogs, but has lived in her adoptive home for three years as a single pet with a single person, so she may need a little time to re-acclimate to a family with different dynamics. Mystery is a nice girl who deserves a nice family.
Mystery's adoption fee of $100 includes: vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming and microchip. She is feline leukemia and FIV negative and spayed.

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.
Adopt-A-Pet serves Chicagoland area and north, northwest, and west suburbs.
