Meet "The Murper"...just one of Bonnie's nicknames in her foster home :)

Bonnie makes a very unique sound when she wants attention~it's really cute. When she is ready for some human loving, she will seek you out for some attention, which includes her little version of 'Hello" in Bonnie language, it really sounds like "mmmurp". As soon as you start petting her, she starts to purr...it's that easy!

Bonnie also comes with her own unique purrrsonality. She will seek out attention, but if she hears a strange noise she will take off until she realizes it was nothing, then she comes right back. She loves to lay on her foster mom's legs anytime she gets the chance. She's also known to try to sneak under the bed covers to get to the soft blanket. Another part of Bonnie's character...she's a "soft blanket sucker". She has done this ever since she was a kitten. No worries, no holes, just a little wet spot when she's done :). These magic blankets makes her instantly relax, she starts to purr, and she is in cat-heaven!

Bonnie is a beautiful Tortoiseshell, "Tortie" girl! She has some great markings, especially on her tummy which she is more than happy to show you when you start to give her a tummy rub! Bonnie loves to explore her foster home and loves to find boxes or baskets to cuddle up in. Once she is comfortable with them, Bonnie appreciates pets from gentle respectful kids, and even sleeps with her 10 year old foster human. But, she prefers to only be picked up by adults.

Bonnie will need time to transition into your home, as she still has a tendency to get scared with any new situations or loud noises. If you can be patient, and be humored by her quirks, she is so worth it!

Although she has been in a foster home with cats and dogs, we think Bonnie would be fine in a quieter home as a single cat. Or, with a friendly male cat (for some reason she isn't buddies with the resident friendly female cat).

Bonnie's estimated date of birth is 5/1/13. Her adoption fee of $50 includes: vet exam, FeLV/FIV test (neg), distemper combo (FVRCP) vaccine, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay. And, as a bonus Bonnie comes with her own very special blanket...you don't hear that too often!

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
