Mickie's Story...
Mickie is a senior kitty (approximately 10-11 yrs old) who was abandoned in the Pullman neighborhood when her owner moved away and left her outside a few months ago. Although she can be a little crotchety as an older lady, Mickie loves to be around people and sit next to you and be petted. She also loves toys and staring at you while purring loudly. She has a minor deformation of her sternum which is a birth defect and seems to cause her some discomfort when being picked up, so she is not too fond of being picked up or having her tummy rubbed. The vet has said that this defect causes no other health concerns. She is thrilled to be back inside and is looking for a home to call her own. She also does seem to get along with other kitties as well, and she could potentially be paired up with a friend. Mickie is vetted, neg/neg and ready to move in and plop next to you on the couch!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mickie, 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.
