Domestic Shorthair Cat for adoption in Chicago, Illinois - Winking Willow

Winking Willow's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Winking Willow's Story...
Winking Willow came to us after a kind woman took her from a home with 16 cats after the owner became very ill. All but Winking Willow were placed in homes.

Winking Willow is understandable nervous, and spends most of her time in her open clinic cage with her boyfriend, Bubba Jack. She occasioally peeks out, but some first floor residents (ahem, Studly) are too forward for this demure wall flower. She hasn’t come out of her shell yet, but we’re glad she’s found love and comfort with Bubba. All she wants is a second chance, preferably with calm, mature cats (and Bubba Jack!), and a quiet corner with a soft pillow. Winking Willow was born in 2006.

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS

* A photo I.D.
* A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill).
* If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats.
* All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
