Mae and Crosby's Story...
MAE and CROSBY are a pair of adorable sisters rescued from Chicago Animal Control at just 5 weeks old. They are now about 2 years old and have grown up quite a bit! A perfect complimentary pair, Crosby is all fun and games, while Mae is sweet and more reserved. Mae is also nearly double the size of her sister, whom we now believe was probably the runt of the litter; though Mae was more sickly as a kitten. They have recovered fully from their time as orphans at the shelter & now need a home to call their own. These girls are mischievous, but are also total loves and will cuddle and purr with you (especially Crosby) if shown just a little love and patience. They would do well with anyone or any animals in the home, but they need to be adopted together, as they are quite bonded. Both girls will share their love and get along well with everyone in their Hyde Park foster home. Mae can often be found grooming her sister Crosby or others in the home. They would do fine with children & adults. The girls have beautiful tabby/bengal markings and come fully vetted. Please come meet them today!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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