Gretchen's Story...
She is about three years old, was found living under a car in Woodlawn, she is microchipped, spayed and up to date on innoculations and FIV and Feulk negative. She is an elegant and lovely long hair tabby with possibly some Norweigan Forest Cat ancestry (the short legs and long low body are typical of that breed as are the tufts of fur between her very furry toes). She is affectionate and vocal and loves attention and to be petted. She gets along with other cats after some time to adjust, she is a bit high strung and nervous from her time outside and flinches in fear when she is startled. She needs a calm and experienced cat person to adopt or foster her, and to help her learn to relax again.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretchen, a Chicago Norwegian Forest Cat cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwegian Forest Cat for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Norwegian Forest Cat 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 Norwegian Forest Cat breeders who help with Norwegian Forest Cat rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
