Geronimo's Story

Eat, sleep, relax, repeat!  That’s Geronimo’s motto!  This stunning girl is hoping to find someone who shares her passion for food and who enjoys lounging around just as much as she does!  Geronimo was found as a stray on the streets of Chicago as a part of our TNR program.  When PAWS saw just how amazingly sweet and friendly she was, we welcomed her in with open arms and decided to give her a chance to finally find a place to call home!  Her sleek black coat and piercing golden eyes are hard to resist!  You’ll be spellbound the moment you see her as she is truly a beautiful kitty!  Geronimo is extremely affectionate and loves receiving head pets!  Although she does also enjoy having some alone time too as she is quite independent.  Geronimo would be the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a laid back and easygoing kitty as she is completely content with being left alone during the day.  Don’t worry though, she will be there at the door waiting to cuddle with you after your stressful day at work!  

Geronimo was previously in a foster home with two other adult kitties and an adult dog.  After only a few days of adjustment in the home, Geronimo became completely comfortable with all three of them!  She would be perfect for a home with other pets!  Geronimo also loves her food so much!  She gobbled up both her dry and wet food whenever it was offered to her in her foster home.  She is also a primp and proper little lady who doesn’t scratch inappropriately or kick around her litter box!  Can she get anymore adorable?  Geronimo has since returned from her foster home with an even more positive outlook on life and is currently enjoying another vacation away from the shelter in a different foster home.  She is certainly winning over her new foster parents with her amazing personality!  Think she may win you over too?  Then email us at to find out how you can make her a part of your family!
