Zoe's Story

Hi, I’m Zoe! I’m a friendly kitty who likes meeting new people, so I just don’t understand why I haven’t met my ‘furever’ family yet! Sure, it can take me a little time to warm up in new environments, but once you get beyond that I’m an outgoing, fun kitty who loves to play! I enjoy playing with wand toys, and I spent a week in a foster home earlier this spring where I got to share my favorite hobby with my foster family—collecting and playing with pom poms!

I can get a bit nippy at times, but I’m very clear about giving signals when I’ve had enough interaction for the time being.  I’d do very well in an adults-only home with people who have owned cats previously and will respect my need to acclimate at my own pace. Once I feel comfortable enough to let my ‘purrrsonalty’ shine, you’ll see just how sweet and playful I can be! Can you give me the home I’ve been waiting for?  

  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • I’m a people person! 
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • I need an experienced adopter.  


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • I need a little extra time to warm up to people I don’t know
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home





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!
