I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Smokey's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.

Smokey's Story...
Last year lung cancer claimed his papa.
This year his mom’s Alzheimer’s progressed to the point where she could no longer care for him.

This sad situation has created the need to find Smokey a new home.

He is a neutered male cat, 6 years young, with purrsonality plus!
Smokey will make you laugh and smile while he plays with his toys, and warm your heart when he collapses at your feet for some attention. This big purr-machine is adorable and affectionate with people, but would be happiest in a home where he is an only pet, since he does not “work & play well” with other cats.

Smokey had a wellness exam in September & everything checked out great, except he needs to lose a little weight. Here is this boy’s story in his own words:

“I was so blessed five years ago when mommy and poppy took me in off the streets and turned me into a pampered house cat. We all loved each other so much and for a few years life was really good. Then papa passed away and it was just me and mommy. After a while she got something called Alzheimer’s and couldn’t live in our home anymore. My happy family has been broken up by death and illness and I am desperately seeking a new special person or persons to love. I’m a quiet boy capable of entertaining myself with my toys. But I also love to cuddle and be petted. Do I sound like someone you’d like to cuddle

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Smokey, a West Dundee 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 West Dundee, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in West Dundee.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Dundee 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 West Dundee 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 West Dundee paves the way for another one to be saved.
