Dolly's Story...
Dolly was once a skinny kitty covered with dirt and oil and living in the underside of an abandoned car in Roseland. You would never guess upon meeting her a few months ago that she would become the healthy, vivacious, fuzzy creampuff that she's become today. Dolly was not quite sure a few months ago how to handle being pet and loved on, but she now demands it and often goes into a drooling, purring trance when getting a good scratch behind the ears. She is friendly, curious, and playful, and has just started to figure out how fun kitty toys can be, particularly sticks with strings or feathers attached. Dolly loves attention and being around people now but can still be a little leery of too much manhandling. She has come a long way in just a few months. It is still unclear about how Dolly would be with other kitties or dogs, but if given plenty of introduction time, it is definitely a possibility. Dolly has been around kids ages 8-12 and has been great, but is not a fan of tail pulls. She has a sweet, independent personality and is very happy to be warm and fed and inside with people. She is waiting for her forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dolly, a Chicago Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Longhair 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
