Lorel's Story

Lorel, a ten-year-old dilute calico, is one of the most beautiful cats to grace the halls of PAWS Chicago. There’s so much more to this charming lady than her looks, though, and Lorel would love to find a family ready to see just how special she is on the inside as well as the outside. In addition to finding the best spots for lounging, Lorel finds joy in exploring and investigating her home environment throughout the day. A short play session with a Cat Dancer toy once or twice a day and a few bouncy balls are all she needs in terms of play. Being close to her human friends and relaxing with them is another favorite pastime for Lorel. She also has a purr that can go on for days – very soothing after a stressful day at work. 


Lorel hopes to find an adult-only home with experienced cat people. She’s at her best in a quiet, calm, Zen-like environment. Her current foster family thinks she’d love to find a family of homebodies who appreciate the simple things in life, like listening to soft music, staying in and reading a good book, or just snuggling. Lorel also prefers human companionship over feline and will be happiest in a home where she is the only pet.  Lorel is currently spending time in a foster home.
