Goliath's Story

Meet adorable Goliath!  He is truly one gorgeous boy who is searching for that special someone to sweep him off his paws and fulfill his dream of finding a home to spend forever in.  Goliath was found as a stray and brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  Seeing how much potential this cutie had, PAWS rescued him and gave him the chance to finding his fairytale ending and living happily ever after with a loving family.  Goliath’s greatest wish is to find a home where he has plenty of comfy spots to chill out in and cat trees to jump and explore whenever he pleases.  He is such a sweet and mellow boy and enjoys lounging around and being close to his human friends.  Goliath also enjoys playtime and would absolutely love to find someone who is just like him and enjoys being active just as much as they enjoy being a couch potato!


Goliath recently spent some time in a foster home where his foster had nothing but kind words to say about him.  He is best described as a super sweet and playful guy who takes his wet food very serious and will rub right up against your legs and meow until its chow time! He enjoys watching birds and other furry creatures through the window and could probably spend the whole day enjoying the sights and sounds of the great outdoors from the comfort of his very own perch!  This sweet and oh so adorable fellow is about as friendly as they come and wholly deserves nothing but the best!  Goliath is hoping to win his way into your heart!  Won’t you give him the chance to do just that?

  • Cuddles!  I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • I'm an explorer- I love to jump and climb!
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • I'm a people person!
  • Was that a bird?  I love window watching.


  • I enjoy playtime and attention, but I'll let you know when I'm ready to play.
