Kenya's Story...
Kenya was adopted from Hyde Park Cats last year, but her owner is in the midst of a family emergency and we are putting her back on the market. Her owner is incredibly sad but hopes that someone will come along to give Kenya a new forever home filled with love and affection.

Her current mom writes that "Kenya is a fun and playful cat. She loves to sit in an open window, or an open door with a screen in it. Kenya is a hunter cat, and she loves to sniff out bugs for a tasty treat. Kenya has medium energy level, and she will sleep when you sleep (she's pretty laid back). She does not like to be closed out so leave the door to your room cracked! She likes to be next to you so put her bed next to yours and she will sleep there. She doesn't really care for fancy cat toys, but she will love a shoelace, string, or a ball of paper. Kenya has excellent litter habits and is a healthy girl."

Our original post on Kenya:
Kenya was found wandering alone on busy Hyde Park Blvd (51st St.), meowing for help. Construction workers said she had been meowing at passers-by for quite a while. She is a beautiful sleek young black cat (probably under one year) who loves to greet you with meows and purrs. Her favorite toy is wadded-up paper towels; she loves to bask in the sunlight. Kenya is very playful and even enjoys checking out the water in the bathtub. She loves to be petted and will curl up with you in bed. Her orange eyes are hypnotic!

Fostermom Tameka points out that Kenya has just the cutest jet-black nose and a tiny white patch on the tip of her tail.

So let's review ... Beautiful. Healthy. Cheap date. Loving. Smart. Awesome!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kenya, 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.
