Yanni's Story

Does the music of New Age megastar Yanni excite you?  Whether you love the musician or not, PAWS Chicago would like to introduce the world to its very own Yanni, a delightful white and brown tabby cat whose charm and gentle nature are guaranteed to turn anyone he meets into a lifelong super fan.  At just eight years old, this mild-mannered gentleman has been warming laps and melting hearts since being brought to PAWS as a stray in January of 2019.  While at PAWS, we’ve learned that Yanni’s favorite activities include chasing ribbons and spending as much time as he can with his human friends.  You’ll always have someone to greet you at the door with Yanni around.  A social butterfly, Yanni loves being around his human family, and he’s quite the snuggler once he gets to know you. 

If all of this isn’t enough to peak your interest, did we mention how well Yanni does with kids? A previous foster family gushed at how gentle Yanni behaved toward the foster’s three young children.  While at the PAWS Adoption Center, Yanni has also been an ideal roommate to other felines and would likely do well with a feline companion in his next home, although that’s not a requirement.  Are you ready to become a part of Yanni’s ever-growing fan base?  For more information on Yanni and how to meet or adopt him, please email
