Jackson's Story...
Big J is a great sidekick -- always close, happy to by your understudy. His favorite place to study you is in the bathroom. Jackson enjoys watching you scrub your pearly whites and loves to lounge in the sink – but not simultaneously. Jackson generously warms up the bathmat while you shower. Every time you scratch his head it is THE best moment of his life so far! Stop petting him too soon and he will give you a lick or put one of his big lion’s paws on you to say “Noooo, please don’t stop!” J’s favorite games involve your waving stringy-dangly-ribbony things for him. This fellow is a big, calm, confident and extra purry boy looking for someone to star in his life story. Jackson was born in 2010.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jackson, 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.
