Sweet Marmalade's Story

Say hello to Sweet Marmalade!  He is absolutely gorgeous with his orange tabby stripes and piercing eyes. Not only does Marmalade have the looks, he has the personality to match!  He is a complete sweetheart who highly enjoys relaxing in any warm, comfy bed he can find and being at the center of everyone’s attention!  Marmalade came to us as a stray with a significant injury to his tail. It was determined by PAWS’ veterinarians that the best thing for Marmalade would be to amputate his tail.  He is a bit sensitive towards his lower back area because of this, so it is suggested that he does not go home with any young children. Despite all of this, Sweet Marmalade has a positive outlook on life and still loves to play with feather wands and enjoys hunting down toy mice! 

The perfect home for Marmalade would be with someone who will be patient with him as he adjusts to his new home and will allow him to come out of his shell. Once his personality starts to shine he will show you that he adores cuddling up right in your lap, enjoys sprawling out on the couch when there’s no laps available, and loves his food! Sweet Marmalade is sure to make an amazing feline companion for anyone who is willing to give him a chance. 

  • Cuddles! I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all!
  • I’m a people person! 
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • Was that a bird? I love window watching! 


  • Loud noises frighten me so I prefer a quiet 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!
