|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Calico Or Dilute Calico||Age:||Young|
Tenny is a lady with many hobbies. When you visit our Bucktown branch, you can’t miss this calico beauty prancing around the adoption floor with her favorite gold sparkle ball (not silver) in her mouth. On another occasion, you might entice her to partake in a game of chase with the dragonfly wand. She is also learning to fetch, so expect that skill to be added to her list of hobbies shortly. A girl of refined taste, she’s laid claim to a crinkle tunnel shaped like a ladybug, which will be sure to go home with her. Tenny, short for Tennis Shoe, was initially rescued at a mere 3 weeks of age with her littermates, Gymshoe and Converse. After a rigorous treatment for the ringworm the kittens came in with, Tenny was was adopted at 7 months only to find herself back at Tree House about 9 months later when her adopters moved. Ready for her forever home (ideally filled to the brim with sparkle balls), Tenny is showing off now more than ever. Constantly dancing, playing, and singing, this happy go-lucky girl has a lot of love to give. Her dainty kitten-like meow beckons you to pay her a visit!
Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.
Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.
At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.
Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
