Amber is located in Palatine, IL

My name is Amber and I am a domestic long haired tortoiseshell cat.
I am spayed and front paw declawed. I came from a Chicago shelter back in 2013 where I was very depressed. My long hair was all matted and dirty as you can see in the photo they took of me at the shelter. I wasn't very happy. Once away from the shelter I was a totally different cat. I love being around people, sitting in their laps and being brushed and petted. I do well with my foster Mom's dog; he is quiet and well behaved.

Amber is a very people oriented cat. She will sit with me on the couch and look up at me and reach out her paw to be petted. She is also very laid back, but does have her playful moments. I have had her as a foster now since 2014. In her time with us as a foster, she has been adopted out once, but returned due to litter box issues. What we have found out is that she does fine as long as she is in an area with hard surface floors; tile, wood, etc. Even area rugs. But wall to wall carpeting is no good. If you are looking for a furry companion who just wants to sit with you and watch TV, and have the right environment for Amber, please consider adopting her.
