Silas — Hyde Park Cats
today at 3:29 pm
2-year-old Silas is a sweet boy. He’s a little hesitant at first, but after that first scratch in the head or down the back, he arches his back and leans into you for more…then the purrs start. He hates for you to leave him alone and will meow for you if you are away.
His left eye has an old ulcer that has healed over so he probably has only some vision. As you can see from the pics, he likes to lie about on your lap, draping himself over you like a throw.
Silas is FIV+, which means he can safely live a long happy life with other cats, provided all are neutered/spayed.

Hyde Park Cats is a local, all-volunteer group dedicated to helping stray and homeless cats in and around Chicago’s Hyde Park. We received our 501(c)(3) status in 2014 and have had over 1,200 adoptions since our founding in 2008. See all our adoptable kitties on our webpage: http://hydeparkcats.org/adopt/
All of our cats are in loving foster homes, which means the cat you adopt will be familiar with the sounds, smells, and movements of life in a home and accustomed to living with humans. He or she has been interacting on a daily basis with people who know this particular cat intimately, and the foster mom or dad can tell you all about the cat’s individual personality, habits, preferences. You can’t judge a cat by its cover! And while we can’t predict the future or know everything about a cat, we can help you choose the cat who is right for you. We have an adoption application and an adoption fee, $125 for the adoption of one cat, or $250 for a pair. This fee goes towards covering their vet costs. All cats adopted out by us are neutered/spayed, micro-chipped, tested for FIV/FeLV, and treated with Revolution.
