Dijon's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Dijon's Story...
Dijon is an adorable, brown tabby boy who is quite shy. He was humanely trapped and brought indoors and despite living at the shelter for years, he is still quite frightened. He LOVES other cats and would be happiest in a home where he could have feline companionship. He will accept careful petting, but startles easily. With some patience, TLC, and regular positive reassurance, Dijon could become an appreciative and trusting kitty in a home environment.

Dijon has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which is an immune system deficiency in cats. It can be harder for cats like him to fight off infection, but if he is given proper preventative care, he can live a long and healthy life. Adopting an FIV positive cat from Tree House comes with a lot of benefits. Our adoptions staff would be happy to provide you with more info about Dijon's condition. Otherwise, Dijon is one happy camper that would love a home to call his own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dijon, 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.
