Stella's Story...
**Stella is located in the Saint Charles, IL area**

Stella was rescued, heavily pregnant from Chicago Animal Care and Control. She was just a baby herself! She gave birth the next day to five beautiful kittens and became a wonderful mother. After she gave birth, the vet mentioned that she had pebbles in her stomach--she had probably been trying to eat those to keep her babies full! Now her babies are all grown up (and bigger than her) and she is ready for a home of her own.

Stella is a sweet girl who is no trouble at all. She is generally very mellow, but will occasionally have a burst of play energy and run around with other cats. When she does play, she loves to hide and seek--and is always up for a game of sneak attack with the other cats. She is small, but doesn't let that stop her.

Stella has the softest fur, and she loves to be petted. She also loves to snuggle with her foster mom. She has beautiful van markings, including a lovely heart shape on her side.

Stella lost most of her teeth to dental disease--her teeth hurt her so bad she couldn't even eat. Today, she has gained much needed wait and she loves to eat (dry and wet food).

Stella is about 4 years old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stella, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Palatine.

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