Rustie's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Rustie's Story...
Rustie has had a rough life. She was obviously someone's pet at some point but ended up as a stray at animal control. She sat hiding in a cage there being passed over by rescues because she was scared there. Now that she's out, she's doing a lot better, but is still learning to trust. She is a bit hand shy, but does like attention from people. She also loves to watch people and other animals are doing from her cat tree. She would do well with an experienced cat owner and would be okay living with other cats. Please email us for more information on Rustie at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rustie, 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.
