Brie's Story

Meet beautiful Brie!  This gorgeous kitty has the most unique pair of eyes you may ever see on a feline!  She uses her good looks to her full advantage!  Just one look at her and you’ll be instantly in love!  Brie originally came to PAWS as a young girl and was adopted in no time.  After spending 3 and a half years in what she believed was her forever home, Brie was abandoned by her owner.  She was brought back to PAWS by a former partner of her previous adopter and we welcomed her with open arms.  Heartbroken and all alone, Brie didn’t trust a single soul and it has been a tough adjustment for this beautiful girl.  It has understandably been a bit difficult for Brie to trust humans since her return, but with a little patience and a ton of love, she slowly becomes comfortable and is able to let her personality shine through!  Brie would love to find a patient and experienced adopter who will be able to give her the time she needs to adjust to her new surroundings.  Once she gains confidence in her home, she becomes a sweet and affectionate kitty who enjoys head pets, play time, and treats!

Brie is searching for a quiet, low traffic home without young children and where she can feel safe and secure.  She also can get easily stressed by too much commotion and by other pets, so she would do best in a low-stress environment as the only pet in the home.  Once Brie gets to know you, she turns into a precious and playful little lady who enjoys engaging with her humans during playtime!  Some of her favorite toys are feather toys, toy mice, wand toys, and her most favorite of all- laser pointers!  She will gladly chase after the evil red dot for hours and hours, jumping and pouncing when she does!  Brie can get overly excited during playtime, so be sure not to use your feet or hands when it’s time to play!  Since this sweetheart does have some energy to expend, she would do best with an experienced owner who will be able to help her expel it in a positive manner.  Brie also loves wet food!  She will gobble it up in seconds!  If you’re looking for a kitty who is a huge foodie, but also enjoys exercise and affection, then Brie is your girl!  Email us at to learn more about this beauty queen!

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!
