My story

Makka will play with any toy provided (or create them on his own!) and race around the entire house, playing alone or with a human.

As long as he’s playing, it doesn’t really matter.

Makka always wants to be near his human foster family.

Makka is social with guests and warms up quickly to anyone who gives him attention

Makka is looking for a home where he can share all the love he has to give with his humans and other cats.

The humans will always feel loved with the constant leg rubs and kisses, and any feline brothers and sisters will enjoy the mutual play time, bath time and hugging it out.

He was friendly right off the bat with the resident cat and resident human.

He loves sleeping in the sun but doesn't mind any head or chin scratches that might wake him up.

He's a playful cat but not super hyper given his young age because much of his energy goes into chasing and wrestling and playing with toys.

He's a good eater but not overly motivated by food or demanding, he prefers a toilet or running faucet for water over a bowl, and he's a champ with the litter box.

He's a feline of few words but does give a soft trill on occasion to let you know he's near and available for some petting.

Why adoption is a great option

Makka, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

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