Meet Trixie


Trixie is available for adoption or foster!

She would do best in an adults-only home where she is the only cat in the household.

If you're interested in adopting her, stop by our Lincoln Park Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago, today!

While Trixie is waiting to be adopted, she would love to spend time in a foster home.

Foster Category: Socialization

Type of Foster Home: 
Trixie needs an Advanced Foster home. She requires special skills and time commitments from his/her foster parents. We will help match you with a mentor if you’re looking to broaden your foster experience, but you need experience with serious medical conditions, intensive care or behavior modification.

Trxiie needs a foster home to provide enrichment and socialization to help him/her prepare to find the right home.

How to Foster Trixie:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Trixie is available for foster pick-up through the Lincoln Park Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago.

Trixie's Story

Meet Trixie! This sassy girl has no shortage of ‘tortitide’ (that’s tortie attitude, for those of you who aren’t in the know) and would love to find her ‘furever’ home soon! Trixie loves people but she can get overstimulated easily and would do best in a home with experienced cat adopters and no small children. She loves to snuggle and when she’s not curled up on the lap of her favorite human, she is always ready for playtime! Trixie likes wand toys and toys that she can pounce and chase, and will need regularly scheduled structured play sessions in her ‘purrrmanent’ home to help manage her energy.  Although she can coexist with other cats, Trixie would prefer to be the queen of the castle in her forever home. Sweet, fun, and full of spunk—could Trixie be the cat for you? 

  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Cuddles! I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • I’m a people person! 
  • Keep me company! I prefer homebodies who are often at home.
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • I need an experienced adopter.  


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home
  • I enjoy playtime and attention, but I'll let you know when I'm ready to play





Why Adopt?

Adoption is one of the best ways to save a life. Only a few thousand more adoptions each year in Chicago, a city of millions of people, and we will be a No Kill community! You can make a real difference.

At PAWS Chicago, we keep working to grow our operations to save more homeless pets. It's how we've gone from saving a few dozen to 6,000 pets a year. But it is our adopters who make the real magic happen by bringing these loving pets home. Adopt a pet and spread the word!

First Time Fostering? Learn More

Our foster families enable us to take in more pets at risk. Some require a quiet place to heal from illness or injury; small puppies and kittens need a nurturing place to grow before they are able to be spayed or neutered and adopted; and others just need socialization and a break from the activity of Adoption Center living. Become a foster parent and help homeless pets in need!
