August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day. In celebration we are highlighting Miss Peaches as our Adopt Me of the Week!
Miss Peaches is a wonderful, quiet lady with a beautiful coat. Miss Peaches would be happiest in a quiet home with no other animals and no small children. She is absolutely the perfect single cat. If you are looking for a calm, affectionate cat to greet you when you come home and maybe snuggle with while you watch TV Miss Peaches is the cat for you!
Miss Peaches has been looking for a forever home for over a year now, and we simply can’t understand why. Sure this beautiful lady is a little particular about what she wants out of a home, but surely there must be such a home out there. Isn’t it a good thing to know what your cat wants before she comes home? We certainly think so, that’s why we are a foster based program, so we can get to know the desires of cats like Miss Peaches. We know the purrfect home is out there somewhere for Miss Peaches.
Black Cat Appreciation Day was started in 2011 to help bring awareness to black cats. Black cats and dogs are the most overlooked animals at shelters. They are the last to get adopted and the first to get euthanized. Someone like Miss Peaches would not have stood a chance at a traditional shelter. Her black fur, combined with her dislike of other cats and the simple fact that she is not a kitten or young adult, would have made it just about impossible for her to get adopted. That’s why Chicago Cat Rescue was founded, to give cats like Miss Peaches a chance at life. If you are interested in Miss Peaches, or any of the other black (or brown, tabby, calico etc) cats available at Chicago Cat Rescue please call or e-mail Cindy.
