Skittles's Story...
Skittles is a gorgeous, fun and sweet, female tortoiseshell kitten who was born on January 9th. Her mom is a two-year-old, female, amber-eyed orange tabby cat named Candy who 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 with all her kids. Goober, Snickers and Butterscotch, the orange tabbies are all males. The four tortoiseshells Baby Ruth, Tootsie Pop, Kit Kat and Skittles are females. They are all fun, friendly, playful and very well socialized. In fact, they are so sugary sweet, they were named after their foster mom’s favorite candies. They are available in pairs … including mom with one of her babies. They have been virus tested, are very healthy and will spayed/neutered and available for adoption on March 16th. They will also be vaccinated, micro-chipped. Their adoption fee of $250 in pairs, or $220 for mom and one baby benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possible adopt any of these amazing family members, please contact their foster mom Kathy at kbwilson60612@yahoo.com - they are being fostered in Chicago.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skittles, a Chicago Domestic Shorthair kitten 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 kitten 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.
