Cornelius's Story...
Cornelius is a big, handsome, sociable and handleable, six to eight-year-old, golden-eyed male Tabby cat looking for a feline-loving guardian. Found as a stray in Rogers Park, Cornelius camped out in a vet tech’s yard until they agreed to rescue him. He is wonderful with other cats and is phenomenal with dogs. He loves to be pet and loved on. He has absolutely perfect litter box habits and isn’t a scratcher. He loves to talk to you, and follow you around the house. He’s just the all around perfect cat. Even when we went to the vet together, he allowed the vet to take blood, give injections and trim his nails without flinching. He’s just a mellow, sweet, snugly lap cat. To meet and possibly adopt Cornelius, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. He is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. His adoption fee of $75 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. He is very healthy, de-wormed, virus tested negative, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cornelius, 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.
