Apple Fritter's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Apple Fritter's Story...
Apple Fritter, born around 2008, was trapped as part of our targeted trap-neuter-return project in the 60651 neighborhood. When she came in, she was nervous but quite handleable. She is still fairly withdrawn and nervous around people and prefers to hang out in our executive director’s office. She will always allow gentle petting and affection, though you can tell that she is just a bit uncomfortable. However, at night when we are getting ready to close Apple Fritter can be found out and about and sometimes even playing with a toy. Apple Fritter would do best in a quiet home with gentle and patient people. Apple Fritter has had a corrective surgery on her eyelids for entropion (the turning in of the eyelids).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Apple Fritter, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
