Greta's Story

Have you been searching for a playful and beautiful black and white kitty companion to brighten up your life? Greta is your girl! This super friendly is ready to wiggle her way into your heart and make you fall in love with her forever! After being in a home for most of her life, affectionate Greta was brought to PAWS when her former owner felt she was not a good fit for her household. She was brought back and quickly adopted into another home where she remained for five months.  Sadly, Greta was brought back for a second time after her previous owner moved into a home that didn’t allow animals. Now Greta is patiently waiting for her forever home at PAWS Chicago and is surely hoping that the third time’s the charm!  We have a feeling this time around, it’ll be the fairytale ending she’s always wished for.  Greta is super sweet and laid back and deserves nothing but the best! She loves roaming and exploring and watching the world go by outside the window!  She would enjoy having her very own spot to perch in, in her forever home. “Greta is very sweet,” says her former owner. She could often be found cozying up inside a cardboard box or playing with crinkly ball toys, chasing strings, or running after her laser light. Greta is a terrific kitty—is there room for her in your home?

Adorable Greta would do best in an adults-only home with an experienced owner who can provide her with all the love she craves!  This kitty wants to be the center of your attention, so she would do best as the only feline in the home.  She did, however, live with a doggy in her prior home for several years, so she might tolerate having a canine friend in her forever home!  Greta is currently enjoying a vacation away from the shelter in a loving foster home where she is described as a playful and extremely affectionate girl.  Some of her favorite activities include looking out the window in a sunny spot, playing with wand toys, and hiding playfully under the sheets!  She also loves laser pointers, crinkle toys, and will go nuts over catnip!  Could Greta get any cuter?  She certainly can!  Her foster parents say that she is doing amazingly well with their dog and the two have become buddies since Greta’s arrival! If that’s not completely adorable we don’t know what is!  If you can provide playtime and love, gentle Greta will surely love you right back!  After being in two homes, she’s really crossing her paws that this year the right person will scoop her up and never let go. How can you say “no” to that sweet face of hers? Come on in and meet this friendly girl today! Greta would love to show you her favorite spot to look out the window or perhaps to play with her favorite toy! Meet Greta at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center today!
