Alana's Story

Say hello to our resident princess, Alana!  This gorgeous girl is a love bug at heart and looking for an owner who can help her come out of her shell.  Her calico markings and stunning eyes are completely mesmerizing and make it difficult to focus on anything else when she’s in the room!  Alana was found as a stray on the streets of Chicago and brought to PAWS in the hopes that she could find a warm and loving home to cherish her forever.  Since her arrival, Alana has had a tough time adjusting to life here at the Adoption Center and has been a bit apprehensive of new people.  It does take her a bit of time to warm up to those she doesn’t know and she can be weary of new environments, but with a reassuring scratch on the cheek or rub of her nose, it doesn’t take her long to become comfortable!  Alana is hoping to find a patient and experienced adopter who will be able to help her personality come to life so she can develop into the wonderful companion we all know she can be!

Alana is searching for a quiet, adults-only home where she can explore all the lovely things a warm forever home has to offer.  Her goal is to be the queen of the castle and she hopes to be the only pet in the home so she doesn’t have any competition!  She is currently spending some much-needed time in a foster home, where we have learned that it doesn’t take long at all for her to warm up and begin to solicit affection from her humans!  She is a huge fan of play time and enjoys chasing after wand and feather toys!  If there is one thing Alana loves most in this world, it would be food.  She adores chowing down on a good bowl of that yummy wet stuff!  She would be your best friend forever if you gave her a tasty treat every once and a while!  Alana’s biggest wish is to find someone who will spoil and pamper her to the max as she truly is a beautiful little princess who deserves nothing but the best!  Think Alana’s the perfect kitty for you?  Then take a chance on her and email us at to learn more on how you can meet her today!  You certainly won’t regret it.
