Wilbur's Story...
At first glance Wilbur may seem to be a quiet boy. He sometime prefers to lay on the topmost perch of a cat tree or cage, napping or taking in all the different aspects of shelter activity. Wilbur is a great observer with the most gorgeous green eyes. He turned up on the doorstep of our Bucktown Branch last fall. The note left with him simply said "I just need a home." Nearly a year later, Wilbur is still waiting for the right human to come along. Although it took some time for Wilbur transition to shelter life and to learn to let his guard down, he is now very well adjusted and enjoys receiving pets and attention. Perhaps the best way to peak Wilbur's interest is with a little bonito and he will graciously let you pet his soft coat. He is active and enjoys chasing wand toys. Wilbur has come a long way, and would make a very special companion for whoever takes the time to get to know him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wilbur, 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.
