Oates's Story...
Mr. Oates: A gentlemanly cat.
Mr. Oates’ preferred seat is in the open space between the couches. He has claimed these four square feet as his own, guarding them from unwanted intruders and misplaced limbs. Mr. Oates came to us several weeks ago and he has been warming up ever since.

He enjoys to be pet, though he would not let you know if you didn't ask. Approaching Mr. Oates at the right time and with the right attitude can yield a session of petting and purring his usual demeanor would presumably prohibit. His stern face is a bluff; he has as much love in him as the next cat, and he appreciates human friendship. Mr. Oates is gentle and tender, but he is subtle and coy. His love is there not for the taking, but for the earning, and your patience will certainly be rewarded.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oates, 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.
