Shell's Story

Meet Shell! This 5 year old boy is looking for a family he can snuggle up to. Shell can be a bit timid at first, but give him some time and he’ll want nothing more than to cuddle with you or you will find him snuggled up under a blanket by your side. Shell’s absolute favorite toy, is a plastic fork. It may seem odd, but Shell loves to carry his fork everywhere.


Shell would do best in an experienced household with family members over the age of 15. He will be going home with his companion, Zara. His dream home would be a place where he was allowed to climb and feel like he is ontop of Pride Rock. Shell would also love his family to be open for all the snuggles that he could give. If you think Shell and Zara are the cats for you, stop by the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood today!

  • I love my companion, Zara!
  • I like to play - a lot! Bring on the toys!


  • I am not a fan of being picked up
  • I like to be touched on my own terms
