Domestic Shorthair Cat for adoption in Chicago, Illinois - Mimi Strauss

Mimi Strauss's Info...

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

Mimi Strauss's Story...
This precious cat was trapped as part of one of our targeted TNR project in an underserved neighborhood on Chicago's west side. Like many free-roaming cats, she was tentative with people, so she was returned along with her colony mates to the location where they were trapped, and would be cared for by their registered caretaker. But Mimi didn't want to leave the trap. Finally, she slowly stepped out, and our Project Coordinator picked up the trap and drove away. But she did not get far, because she could not get Mimi's image out of her head. Certainly she did not seem feral after all, so she turned around and found her in the same spot and that someone had already placed poison pellets on the ground around her. Needless to say, she scooped her up immediately and luckily Mimi had not eaten any of the poison. We are so glad that she is now safe at Tree House and can't wait to see her end up in a forever home where she will be loved and cherished.

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
