BOC (Big Orange Cat)'s Story...
Looking for a very special someone with a big heart and an open mind. . . .BOC (Big Orange Cat) is a 16 lb. bundle of purring affection that could double as Morris the Cat. This gentle giant wants nothing more than to climb into your lap and rub his head against you over and over before rolling over on his back and showing you the two white spots on his tummy.
I rescued BOC from the streets of Chicago in March and have been fostering him since, but he is very lonely and needs a more permanent situation. He is between 4 & 7 years and likes other cats. BOC is FIV+, but like people with HIV, he can live a long, healthy life. FIV cats can be integrated with non-FIV cats because the disease is only transmitted via deep puncture wounds (fighting) or from mama to baby. BOC is also blind in one eye, but sees well from the other one.
He loves to be brushed, chase balls, play with stick toys and eat!
BOC has had a tough life on the streets. Will you give him the forever home he so needs and deserves? Liz: 773 898 9899.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BOC (Big Orange Cat), 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.
