Scalia's Story

Scalia is a beautiful longhaired kitty who is waiting to find her ‘purrrfect’ match here at PAWS!  Scalia can be shy and finds all the commotion of the Adoption Center a bit overwhelming due to her reserved ‘purrrsonality’.  But as conservative as Scalia may appear, once she feels comfortable she won’t hesitate to cross party lines and will liberally seek out attention and petting from her human companions! 

Scalia’s foster mom tells us that although Scalia was not very interested in interacting at the Adoption Center, she became an outgoing, friendly and lovable cat almost immediately after she settled into her foster home.  Although she is not very fond of being held, Scalia enjoyed interacting with guests to her foster home, and also took to sprinting “victory laps” around the apartment when her mom got home from work each day.  Although she is great with people, Scalia would probably prefer to be an only kitty and would do best in a quiet, adults-only home so that she can have the ‘purrfect’ environment to bring her out of her shell.  Scalia would love it if you wouldn’t judge her ‘purrrsonality’ by what you see at the shelter, because you may miss out on a wonderful kitty—and we think that would be a crime!  If you’re looking for a supremely awesome cat to keep you company this winter, add ‘meeting Scalia’ to your docket and stop by today!

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!
