Smokey the Bandit's Story

With her beautiful long gray and white fur and striking green eyes, Smokey the Bandit catches the attention of everyone who sees her! It’s hard to believe that this fabulous feline was once a stray but luckily she made her way to PAWS Chicago and is now on the hunt for her forever home. Active and playful, Smokey is a big fan of pretty much any toy and is always up for some hunt-and-catch games! She also loves to cuddle up with her human companions and enjoys being petted and brushed.

At some point in her life Smokey was declawed on her front paws which may be the cause of some litter box and behavioral issues she’s exhibited in a previous home. She will need an experienced adopter who will be patient and help her work through these challenges while providing her with a quiet, stress free environment. Smokey is shy and nervous and will be most comfortable in a home without children or other pets. Smokey the Bandit is a wonderful cat who, if given the chance, will be a fantastic companion for a future adopter. Could you be the one to help her take the next step in her journey? 

  • Cuddles! I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all!
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • Was that a bird? I love window watching! 
  • I need an experienced adopter.  


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home
