Petra's Story...
Petra is an all-black Manx cat we rescued from the Animal Welfare League last week. She had been there for at least a month, very afraid in her cage. Fostermom says "she's soooo sweet -- she starts purring softly when you pet her but she is to scared to approach yet (she may be afraid of the resident dog)." Petra was turned into AWL unspayed, and had indeed born kittens in the past, but is now fixed. She had a hernia in her abdominal wall from an unknown trauma (dog attack?). She is an adult kitty, maybe seven, but quite tiny and did we mention ... without a tail?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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