Candy's Story...
Candy is a gorgeous, sweet, very playful, and fun, three-year-old, female, amber-eyed orange tabby cat looking for a loving guardian.

Super lovable Candy was found pregnant and living in a steel mill. The employees took pity on her and fed her from their lunch boxes until rescue could be found. She is now living in a foster home … all her adorable kittens found homes, now it’s Candy’s turn.

Candy is an incredibly affectionate and people-loving cat. She just loves to follow her foster mom all over the house.

She is living with seven other cats in her foster home with whom she coexists but doesn’t exactly love. So, while she would be probably be happiest as an only cat, she could probably co-exist with another feline who gives her space.

Candy is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and virus-tested. Her adoption fee of $95 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possible adopt Candy, please contact her foster mom Kathy at - she is being fostered in Chicago.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Candy, 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.
