My story

FOSTERED IN: Adoption Center - Frankfort, IL 60423
COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair
KIDS: Unlikely
DOGS: Unlikely
CATS: Some

Cynthia and Bugsy became best friends at animal control, and that facility had intended on adopting the two out as a bonded pair. However, somehow there was a mix-up at animal control, and Bugsy was adopted out with a different black cat. Though Bugsy is a super friendly guy, he is a bit shy at first, and his first instinct was to find a cozy hiding place in his new environment once he was taken home. He ended up finding a hole in the wall of his new adoptive home and was missing for 2 months! He was then returned to the animal control facility and reunited with his pal, Cynthia, who had become depressed and lonely since he left. She instantly cozied up to her bestie once again! Now that they are in our care, we are committed to making sure they are never separated again.

Cynthia must be adopted with her best friend, Bugsy.

Cynthia is a sweet, lovable girl, but she takes a little time to warm up to new people. She does not like to be approached too quickly, but the more calm and quiet you are around her, the more willing she is to let you reach out and stroke her. And once you lay hands on her, you won’t be sorry! She has the softest, most plush coat ever! She appreciates very gentle petting, but particularly enjoys having the base of her tail scratched lightly. She’ll lift her butt in approval and let out a sweet, almost inaudible meow. Once you earn her trust, Cynthia may find herself laying at your feet, rolling over to show you her belly. The more time you spend with her, the more relaxed and content she becomes. She gets most of her confidence from being near Bugsy, so you will almost always find her snuggled up with him.

Luckily, Cynthia is a very low-maintenance cat so she doesn’t require a lot of your time or attention, but truly enjoys the occasional pet from her humans. If you aren’t home a lot, no big deal! Her and Bugsy aren’t ever too far apart, so they will never be lonely so long as they have each other. They don't ask for much - just some nice comfy cat beds (that will fit two cats) and a big sunny window! They would prefer a calm, laid back household that would match their personalities.

Why adoption is a great option

Cynthia & Bugsy, a Frankfort 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 Frankfort, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Frankfort.

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