Meow! My name is Bachi
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Kitten|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Hello, I'm Bachi. I am a male, grey/black tuxedo tabby, with little hints of orange. We're pretty sure my mom is a Siamese Snowshoe mix, so I probably have a bit of oriental heritage too. I am having my first birthday in April (2013).
Here is what my foster mom has to say about me: "He is such a great cat. He is very friendly, easy going and quiet. It took him and my cat 5 minutes to become best friends. He is very good and patient with my young kids. He has only one request which is to have 5 or 10 minutes of love and petting per day (he insists and it's impossible to say no!). This cat is purrfect. Bachi likes to be around and close to us but not in our faces; however, if we call him he will come. He would be a great cat for a family with small children or children of any age".
Bachi's is looking for a loving home where he can be one of the family, and we would really like him to be adopted into a home with another playful cat.
His estimated date of birth is 4/8/12. His adoption fee of $115 includes: vet exam, feline leukemia/FIV test, FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, microchip and neutering.

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.
ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.
ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.
ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.
ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.
ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.
Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org
Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.
How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
Adopt-A-Pet serves Chicagoland area and north, northwest, and west suburbs.
