Live near Chicago and want a cat?

Here’s a lovely cat that’s up for adoption in this area:

The ex-owner says:

Hi Dr. Coyne,

I love your website (not blog), especially the cats.  Sadly, we had to return our 1-year old female tortie-tabby to the Animal Welfare League Shelter in Chicago Ridge due to a health issue in the family.  My daughter is heart-broken and I would pay the adoption fee and be forever grateful for someone to adopt her and let my daughter know that she is going to be ok.  She is spayed, and is very sociable.  Her name is Terra.

Thank you,

Mary Ellen

I’ll provide a bookish reward if you successfully adopt this lovely animal.
