Laney's Story...
**Laney is located in the St. Charles, Il area**

Hi I'm Laney. Somehow I got away from home and ended up at Chicago Animal Control. My owners found me, but then said that I should be put down. MeYOW. The folks there didn't understand it; they thought I was a sweet, healthy girl. So they asked a nice foster from IAR to take me home.

When I first go to my foster home scared of everything. I would flinch when my foster mom tried to pet me. I thought she was going to hit me. But I soon learned she wasn't going to hit me--and that she was pretty good for snuggling. I was terrified of the dog and the other cats.

I’m fine with the dog now, but I still don’t love other cats. I would probably be best in a home where I can get all the love and attention, or with a very passive kitty, as I am sometimes a target of bully cats.

I love to give kisses and I am very patient with grooming. Mom says I do have one habit that she is working on--I like to monkey bite. So I'm probably not a good cat for small kids.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Laney, 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.
