Boris's Story

Meet the handsome, dapper, and all around adorable Boris!  Boris is a gorgeous tuxedo kitty who was found as a stray and brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  PAWS took him under our wing in the hopes of finding him the ‘purrfect’ forever home!    This handsome guy is quite the character and has a personality that can’t be beat!  He is looking for an active family who will give him lots of attention and play with him to help expend his boundless energy since he’s such a vibrant boy!  He loves being up and about and is always searching for something to do!  Boris’s greatest wish is to find a home where he has tons of places for him to jump, climb, explore and where he’ll receive daily, interactive play sessions.  Some of his favorite activities include chasing after fun wand toys, pouncing on toy mice, and watching birds fly by through the window!  He even makes an adorable chirping sound during playtime!  He is as cute as can be and lights up every room he enters!  Just staring into his precious eyes will have you spellbound and rushing to take him home with you!

Boris is searching for an adults-only, active household with an experienced owner.  He enjoys affection, but can get easily overstimulated and is sensitive to pets along his back side.  He would love to find a family who can give him his space when he needs it and understand when he’s had enough direct interactions for the time being.  Since Boris’s all-time favorite thing is playtime and he has lots of energy, he will need lots of environmental enrichment and toys he can entertain himself with, so he doesn’t get bored!  He is such a joy to be around and his adorable antics will have you laughing up a storm!  Just watching him chase after his toys is a sight worth seeing!  Boris has always dreamed of being a part of a loving family and hopes his adoption day is right around the corner!  If you have love to spare and feel like Boris is the perfect kitty for you, then give him a chance and meet him today!
