Zara's Story

Meet Zara! This sweet 2 year old cat is looking for her forever home. Zara is a bit shy and fearful and will need time to get comfortable to her new surroundings. But with the help from her companion Shell and her family letting her take her time, Zara’s personality really starts to shine. She loves to chase after all types of toys, especially her favorite toy Mr. Frog. These toys are great for helping Zara trust her new family.


Zara would do best in an experienced household with family members over the age of 15. She will be going home with her companion, Shell. She would also love her family to be very patient with her as she starts to become more confident. If you think Zara and Shell 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, Shell!
  • I love to play so bring on the toys!


  • Loud noises frighten me so I prefer a quite home
  • I am not a fan of the carrier
  • I like to be touched on my own terms
