Alden's Story

Meet the stunning and mysterious, Alden!  This striking little bundle of fur has the most beautiful smoky colored coat, and eyes that are so captivating, it’s hard to look away from them!  This beauty came to PAWS from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where she was brought in as a stray.  Since her arrival, Alden has hid herself away from the world, curling up in a ball and trying her best to go unnoticed.  It seems as if this quiet girl has had a rough start at life and has been through a lot in her two short years.  She has had a tough time trusting those around her, only comforted by cuddling up with her kitty roommates.  Pretty Alden will allow you to give her head pets and seems to enjoy the presence of humans, however, she is slow to building a relationship of trust. 

This cutie is hoping to find the purrfect forever home with a family who will be able to unravel the mystery that is Alden!  She will certainly need a very patient adopter who will understand that it’ll take her time to come around and will give her the space and time she needs to come out of her shell.  She also seems to do well with other feline friends!  Alden hopes her new home will have a kitty companion who will be able to show her the ropes and help her personality come alive!  If you’re willing to take a chance on this beautiful girl, then stop by and say hello to her here at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center!

  • I would love having another feline friend in my forever home!
  • I'd love a patient adopter who will allow me to acclimate at my own pace.
  • I need an experienced adopter.
  • Was that a bird?  I love window watching!


  • I prefer quiet environments that aren't crowded.
  • I need a little extra time to warm up to people I don't know.
