Facts about Shamsie

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Shamsie! I’m home! Can you tell how happy I am as I prance up to greet you with my fluffy orange tail in the air?! Whatcha up for? a little lap time? Me too! a little play time? Me too! Oh, you need to get stuff done? Okay, I'll go take a nap.

While Shamsie peacefully co-exists with other cats, she has little interest in having a feline companion. Instead, she would love to have a "special someone", whose lap is reserved only for her! While Shamsie would be happiest as an only cat, she would do best in a home in which she isn't left alone for long days, as she has never lived by herself. Someone with a home office, who works part time, or who is retired, would suit our Shamsie just fine!

Shamsie really is the perfect companion. She is a fun-loving feline who enjoys the company of all who come along regardless of how many of their paws touch the ground. If you are ready to tell Shamsie she is home, contact Cindy at 773.203.0215 or

About Chicago Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Chicago Cat Rescue is dedicated to helping animals in need and educating human companions. Chicago Cat Rescue is an all volunteer-run rescue group and we rely on compassionate individuals in our community to foster our rescued cats until they find their forever homes.

Chicago Cat Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax deductible.

Chicago Cat Rescue is unique in the fact that all of our animals available for adoption are currently living in foster homes. Foster homes make a great scenario for you to meet & mingle with your potential furry friend(s). A casual, home-like setting brings out the best in our animals for adoption and helps you get a true sense of the personality and characteristics of the animal in consideration. All of our foster homes provide a flexible schedule to accommodate appointments with potential adopters

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee is $125.00 for a single cat and $200.00 for a pair. All of our kitties have been combo-tested for FIV/Feline Leukemia, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for distemper, micro-chipped, and dewormed.

Our adoption process is as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Call or email us to learn more about the cat you are interested in - we, of course, will have questions for you. Our conversations are a great way for us to get to know each other and ensure you will be a great match for the cat of interest (and that they will be a great match for you!).

2. We will set up a convenient time for you to meet the cat of interest. All of our cats are in foster homes in Chicago - so you will be meeting with the foster mom/dad, a representative from Chicago Cat Rescue, as well as the lucky cat(s)!

3. After the meeting, you will be asked to fill out an adoption application. A representative from Chicago Cat Rescue will process your application (usually within 2-3 business days), and if all goes well your new cat(s) will be ready to come home!

When you adopt from Chicago Cat Rescue, you not only gain the unconditional love of a cat(s), you also gain the perpetual support from a group of caring people who are committed to you and your new companion's health & happiness.
