Dorothy's Story...
Dorothy is a petite girl who lights up any room she walks in. Her adorable crossed eyes make anyone that sees her smile. Dorothy is an adorable brown and white tabby girl, about 8 months old.

She hasn't always had it easy -- Dorothy was rescued on the south side of Chicago after a kind lady found her on fire. Because the lady had broken English, we aren't sure of the full story, but we do know that Dorothy was burning, and the lady covered her with a blanket, put out the flame, and took Dorothy to Animal Control where they were sedated her, cleaned out her wounds and stapled her (with 54 staples and 28 stitches), back up. Her stitches and staples are now out, and she's healing like a champ.

Dorothy has the sweetest disposition, you'd never know that she went through the trauma that she did. She loves to sit on your lap, and she's what we call a "happy-drooler" who loves to rub on your face and leave some love spit behind! She enjoys playing and gets along well with other cats.

Dorothy is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated against distemper and rabies, combo-tested negative for FIV/Leuk, and treated for all parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dorothy, a Addison 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 Addison, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Addison.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Addison 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 Addison 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 Addison paves the way for another one to be saved.
