Paraffin's Story...
This adorable kitten was rescued in October with her siblings from a hoarding situation. She was undernourished, had received no medical care and lacked the necessary human contact to trust. She is healthy today, yet still retains corneal scars from untreated eye infections before admission to Tree House. She is very shy and may run when approached but truly enjoys affection from people when she feels safe. Recently she has begun curling up beside people, purring and taking a cat naps. She is the gentlest of her siblings, often found mothering her brother and sister with loving licks. She has made so much progress in socialization in the months that we have had her, but we know only in a loving home will she truly blossom. Paraffin gets along extremely well with the other kittens making her an excellent companion for another cat, but we would love to see her adopted with one or both of her siblings. Paraffin was born in July of 2012.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Paraffin, 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.
