Pippa's Story

Meet Pippa!  Pippa is a gorgeous Calico girl who is ready to find a quiet and calm household where she can enjoy life to the fullest!  This cutie pie spent all 6 years of her life in a loving home and was sadly relinquished to PAWS by her owners when they could no longer care for her.  She has been understandably scared and confused by the abrupt change and has been very fearful since her arrival.  It has been a stressful experience for this girl to say the least and tough for her to trust those around her.  Pippa is so deserving of a forever home and we are determined to find one that is perfect for her!  With a lot of patience, love, and encouragement, Pippa is sure to open up to her humans and become a wonderful kitty companion.  This sweetheart deserves to be spoiled with affection and cherished as much as possible!

Pippa hopes to find a quiet, adults-only home where she can enjoy the good life as the only pet in the home.  She previously spent much needed time in a foster home where she slowly but surely warmed up to her foster mom.  It will certainly take Pippa some time to become comfortable, so she will need an owner who will be able to commit to slowly gaining her trust and help build up her confidence. Once she trusts you, Pippa will love you until the very end! She will greet you with a chorus of meows and immediately ask for a nice head scratch! From her previous home, we know that Pippa enjoyed spending her days relaxing with her humans and curling up on their laps to watch television!  She is a laid-back kitty who is perfectly content with lounging around in a sunny spot or perching in the window to watch the birds fly by!  Pippa is bound to show her true colors once she is given all the time she needs to learn that the world isn’t so scary after all.  Do you feel like you could make this sweetheart’s dream of finding a forever home come true? Come in and meet her at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center!
