Matilda's Story...
Matilda is a beautiful, affectionate, snugly, loving, playful, and fun, 18-month-old, female Tortoiseshell cat looking for a loving guardian. Matilda was hanging out in front of the Chicago South Shore Public Library greeting everyone and anyone who would pay attention to her. Little children would give her pieces of their donuts and she’d let them pick her up and cuddle her. A cat-loving visitor noticed that she needed help and brought her into rescue. Matilda is a fabulous indoor-cat … she uses her litter box and scratching post. She is so sweet and enjoys jumping for a feather toy or rolling with her catnip toys. She is living in a foster home and has not yet met other cats and dogs, but we think she’ll do okay with careful introduction. She would also do fine as the one and only pet in the home. To meet and possibly adopt Matilda please contact her rescuer Kyla at kyla.page@gmail.com or 206-910-2434. Her adoption fee of $95 benefits Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. She is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and virus-tested negative. She is being fostered in Chicago.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matilda, 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.
