Grover's Story...
Grover (named after Cottage Grove, a major street near where he was found) is a very affectionate sweet tabby boy who is estimated to be around 1.5-2yrs of age. Grover had been trying to get into a woman's house for a week, and had finally just set up a little nest in the bush outside of her front door since she is terrified of cats (what??!) and refused to let him in her home. Grover had obviously been in someone's home before and did not know how to be outside. He is neutered and healthy and looking for a permanent indoor space he can finally call home.

Grover is extremely friendly and playful and loves human attention. He is curious and cuddly; even the vet referred to him as "a perfect gentleman." He was barely in his new apartment for five minutes before he started exploring his new space and trying to meet all of his new fostermoms. Fostermom Sarah says "for the first few hours he was a ball of energy, and ran all around our space looking for every nook and cranny--and finding every toy. While he's not quite a lapcat, he is very cuddly and likes to nap near people. He followed me around the apartment this morning just so he could nap next to my feet!"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Grover, 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.
