Cieran's Story...
Cieran was one of 13 kittens abandoned in two carriers in June, when they were all just 6-8 weeks old. They were left with a note saying they were found on a foreclosed property, and they were all somehow related. They were all shy initially, but most warmed up pretty quickly. Cieran, however, remained frightened, and less willing to trust people. While his brothers and sisters were quickly adopted, he hid in cat trees and corners, running from outstretched hands and loud boots. Luckily, he found a friend in similarly shy Mrs. Norris. The two of them are constantly found cuddling, and we're so glad they've found some comfort in each other. Cieran and Mrs. Norris were briefly adopted together in October, returned after only a few days when the adopter realized he wasn't ready to commit to two very shy kittens. Cieran needs a very special adopter who understands they may never have a cuddly, affectionate relationship with Cieran. He has made little progress here, and we are worried his shyness will keep him from ever being adopted. That said, we do think that in a stable home with open hearted, patient people would do so much good for him. It's our dream that Fracas, Cieran, and Mrs. Norris all be adopted together; however, we realize that's a pretty tall order. We just hope all three find loving homes with people who give them the space and compassion they need, and another feline buddy to help them feel secure. Cieran was born in April of 2012.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cieran, 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.
