Amber's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Amber's Story...
Amber is located in Palatine, IL. I am a Tortoiseshell Maine Coon.
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. . I put up with the company of other cats depending on their personalities.
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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Amber, a Palatine Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Palatine, or seeking a Maine Coon 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 Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
