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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mimi Strauss, 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.
