FOSTERED IN: Frankfort, IL
AGE: 2 years old
COLOR/BREED: Bengal/Tabby mix
GENDER: Male
KIDS: No
DOGS: No
CATS: No

HISTORY: 
Schipp was found running loose outside Chicago Animal Care and brought into rescue

ABOUT: 
Schipp is a very large, 18 pound, 2 year old cat. We are not sure if he is the biggest Tabby that we have ever seen or he is mixed with another breed! He is not a fan of any other animals so he would need to be the only cat. Activity level wise, he is pretty laid back and entertains himself. He is very dog-like in his mannerisms. He will follow you and sit when you stop. He is confident in the fact that he will choose to what extent he wants attention. He will come and sit by you, or crawl over your lap.
The perfect home would be someone who is looking for a low-maintenance, non-needy roommate. He is fine by himself so you don’t have to worry about long work hours. He loves to look out the window on a cat tree (its like he is watching the cat version of Game of Thrones without the monthly bill). He is not a picky eater. He has very good litter box habits. He may be late on his share of the rent as things are tough for XL cats today.

FOSTERED IN: Mokena, IL 60448
AGE: Apx 3 Years (Est DOB: 2016)
WEIGHT: 40lbs
KIDS: Yes, Older
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Gretchen came to us from an overcrowded animal control facility in Alabama.

ABOUT:
Gretchen is a sweet and gentle hound mix. She is being fostered with multiple other dogs from 10lbs to 60lbs and she gets along great with everyone. She LOVES to play with other dogs. Gretchen would love to be adopted into a home with a playful dog around her size or larger. Gretchen spends all her energy playing with the other dogs in the home so she is calm and lower energy around the house when she has had her fill. Gretchen is very sweet with all people, but she can be a tiny bit shy with some new people. She’ll do best with calm, patient owners and would probably be best in a home without small active children. She loves walks and is very well behaved on leash. She is also housetrained and crate trained. Gretchen isn’t the scholarly type as she is struggling to learn “sit,” but she’s darn pretty and tries really hard to be a good girl so we hope no one holds this against her.

COLOR/BREED: Gray Shorthair
GENDER: Female
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Abby came from an open admission animal control facility.

ABOUT:
Abby comes to us after a difficult start. She had had stillborn babies while she was just a baby herself. She is now spayed and has been working on building trust with the world. She will need some patience, but she will reward with sweetness and cuddles. She LOVES her heated bed and sitting and watching out the window on a cat tree. With some encouragement, she will cuddle up with the foster home's big dog and is fine with the resident cats. She will do best with someone experienced and patient with cats and will be fine with other animals (due to her shy nature, small children might not be a good match). Abby is adorable and tiny and very sweet. She just needs patient and positive interactions with the world and she will likely bloom into a very devoted and loving cat.

FOSTERED IN: Bolingbrook, IL 60440
AGE: 2-3 Years (Est DOB: 2016-2017)
WEIGHT: 45lbs
KIDS: Likely
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Waylon was rescued from a suburban Animal Control facility. He had previously lived his whole life in an outdoor pen with his sister and mother. He was heartworm positive.

ABOUT:
Waylon is ready to bust out of the activity restrictions of his heartworm treatment. This pocket-pit sized guy will do best in a more active home who can entertain his higher-energy needs. He’d do great with equally active and playful canine siblings. While Waylon’s active ways occasionally get him into mischief his foster mom said he is just too cute and she can’t even be mad at him. Waylon is housetrained and crate trained. He does great with the other dogs in his foster home and also respects the cats when they tell him they aren’t interested in playing. Waylon is the kind of guy that loves everyone and everything and has a little trouble containing that excitement. He’s kind of a “adult dog in puppy pants” type of dog. His ideal adopter will have some patience and be kind as he learns to adapt to indoor life. The rules for an outdoor dog and an indoor dog are very different and he is trying very hard to learn the inside rules, but sometimes he forgets. Waylon is fun and goofy and promises to lighten up the mood every day with his positive outlook. Oh, did we mention he’s agreeable to wearing hilarious sunglasses while he rides in the car 🙂

Praline has great litter box habits, and is a great eater. Her favorite toy is the laser pen.

FOSTERED IN: Elgin, IL 60124
AGE: 2-3 Years (Est DOB: 2016-2017)
WEIGHT: 40lbs
KIDS: Likely
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown, Possible

HISTORY:
Lucia was a stray brought to a Chicago animal control facility.

ABOUT:
Lucia is a very sweet adaptable girl who will do well in a variety of homes. She is currently being fostered in a home with three other dogs and she gets along with everyone and fits in perfectly. She absolutely LOVES other dogs so she would make a great companion for another dog. Lucia loves people and thrives on attention, but on occasion she can be a little shy with new people. She is fast to warm up, especially if they offer scratches and pets. Lucia is crate trained and house trained. She has also been generally respectful of the bearded dragon and pet rats in the home. While she is not hyper Lucia will need to have a willing canine playmate or a family who will make sure she gets some daily exercise. Once she’s had some play time Lucia is a total snuggly couch potato. Are you wondering what the catch is? She sounds perfect, right? We have to be honest and disclose everything, so here goes: she snores like an old man with a smoking habit holding a chainsaw next to a Mack truck. We hope potential families can look past this to adopt this sweet girl.

DOGS: Likely
CATS: Required

HISTORY:
Ygritte and the rest of the Game of Thrones litter were brought to an open admission Animal Control facility without their mother. They were about 5 weeks old.

ABOUT:
Ygritte is the reserved kitty of the bunch. She will need to be adopted with one of her siblings, or into a home with a social resident cat so she can borrow some of their confidence. While she is reserved, she is not necessarily shy and doesn’t default to run and hide when she is scared, she just hunkers down. Ygritte will do best in a patient, calm, and predictable home so older children will be better for her. Her ideal home will take time to help socialize her more and introduce her to new people and experiences in the home while she is still young. Ygritte also has a loving and playful side and is very fond of snuggling with her brother Tormund and making biscuits on his belly. The GOT litter is slowly being introduced to the resident cats and dogs and are doing well.

ABOUT:

He is Ygritte’s first choice for a snuggle buddy and loves to make biscuits on his belly. He is confident and playful, but at the end of the day he just wants you to hold him. Tormund is an easy going boy who will fit into a lot of homes. The GOT litter is slowly being introduced to the resident cats and dogs and are doing well.

ABOUT:
Brienne is a well rounded kitten with a little bit of everything. She can be adventurous, playful, and snuggly. She’d love to sit on your lap and snuggle, but if you’re busy she’ll entertain herself by batting around the broom fibers or chasing dust bunnies. She’s an overall adaptable, flexible girl!

AGE: Apx 7 Years (Est DOB: 2012)
WEIGHT: 32lbs
KIDS: Likely
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Maggie and her buddy Geanie came from Alabama. They had an owner who took the girls into his care from a homeless person. When that owner passed away his elderly father took the girls in and cared for them, unfortunately he had to go into an assisted living facility so the girls came to Lulu’s Locker to find their forever home together.

ABOUT:
Maggie MUST be adopted with her best buddy Geanie. Both of these girls are incredibly sweet. They are both easy going and have a low energy level. Being a little younger, Maggie will occasionally pick up a toy to play Both girls know sit...when food is involved. They are not being fostered with kids, but because they are very calm and sweet we think they would be fine with children as long as they can respect that the girls aren’t interested in running and playing. Both girls are overweight, so they might gain a little more energy as they continue to lose some of their extra pounds. They get along just fine with the resident senior dog.

HISTORY: 
Kit Kat was rescued from an open admission shelter in Chicago. She was very pregnant, and gave birth the same night. She had a very difficult delivery, and lost a few of her kittens. She was the most amazing mother and took excellent care of the kittens. She never had an issue with anyone handling them, even the vet!

ABOUT: 
Since Kit Kat’s kittens have moved on to their own foster home, Kit Kat has had time to show her personality. She is a spunky, playful girl who likes to bunny kick her stuffed mice. She is very attentive to her humans. She instantly comes up and starts rubbing up against legs to mark people as her very own. She sprawls out when petted, and is very curious about all human activities. She is so much like a kitten herself, that is hard to believe what an amazing mother she was at such a young age.
She is great with the litter box, and is a good, little eater. She will be transitioning into our cat adoption center so we will know more about how she is with other cats very soon!

GENDER: Male
KIDS: Unknown
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY: 
Paddy was found as a stray in Chicago around St. Patrick's Day.

ABOUT: 
Paddy was found as a stray. Paddy is a laid back dude that needs time to adjust to new environments because he is blind. He is currently in a foster home with 2 adults and 3 dogs. He is fine with the other dogs, but mainly just keeps to himself. He does prefer more laid back dogs that respect his space.
Paddy is still getting use to a housebreaking routine. With being older, he does need more frequent potty breaks. He is currently wearing a belly band, but does not have accidents at night when sleeping. He is not crate trained, but has his own area in the house when he is left alone.
He is very good on walks, and is fine being in public. His two favorite activities are to snuggle on your lap, and lounge in the sun. He likes baths and loves to help assist in the kitchen when meals are being made. Paddy does get his exercise by zooming around at night for a few minutes, and also gets happy feet when he hears his foster parents’ voices.
Paddy will do best in a quiet household that is patient with his potty habits, and mindful of the surroundings since he cannot see.

HISTORY:
Godiva came from a Chicago open intake facility.

ABOUT:
Her good looks aside, Godiva is snuggly, curious, and affectionate. Godiva is very calm and laid back when she is alone. She spends her time alone lounging and watching out the windows. She will occasionally play with her toys a bit, but mostly she just waits for her people to come home. Godiva loves to be around her people and acts as her foster mom’s shadow as she follows her around the house. She will reward your love and attention with tons of purrs! Godiva is being fostered with a young child and loves to curl up with him when he’s sleeping, but she can occasionally be overwhelmed with the activity and interaction of a small child so a home with older children or an adults only home will be ideal. Godiva loves to snuggle on the couch and will have a round with the wand toy if you’re a willing playmate.

HISTORY:
Rocket came to Lulu’s from an animal control facility in Alabama.

ABOUT:
Rocket has a lot of energy, and is really fun. He is housebroken, and very quiet when he is in his kennel. He is great with other dogs, and takes cue very well when his puppy-like behavior may be too much. He did meet one cat who hissed at him, and he immediately went in the opposite direction.
He loves toys. He brings them outside, and runs back and forth in the yard with them. He also likes to empty his toy box, but does not like when they go back in! He does good on walks, and isn't reactive to anything on walks. We call him "nosey rosie" as he does want to stop and check out what all the neighbors are doing when he is on his walks.

HISTORY: 
Simon was found as a stray in the south side of Chicago. We could tell right away that this guy was not meant to be on the street. He sat so quietly in his cage just waiting for someone to pay attention to him.

ABOUT: 
Simon resides in our Frankfort Cat Adoption Center. He is majestic, and large with long silky fur. Simon is an observer. He likes to perch on a cat tree and watch the action. He gets along fine with other cats. He has more of a live and let live attitude. Simon is fine being around cats, but doesn’t rely solely on them for companionship. He likes to be around his humans, and prefers to sit right next to his human companion. He likes attention, but is not overly needy at all. With him being outside, we weren’t surprised when he came up FIV+, but we all know that is not an issue now that more adopters have educated themselves on FIV.

GENDER: Male

HISTORY: Fabio was found as a stray. He had a microchip but his previous owner was unable to be contacted.

ABOUT: Fabio has two major needs in life: Snuggles and Snacks. If you’re looking for an aloof or independent cat Fabio is not the guy for you. Fabio lives for attention and loves to be held. He puts the companion in companion animal. Fabio is also very treat motivated so his foster home has started clicker training with him and said he is very responsive. We would love to find him a home that would continue this enrichment activity that he excels at. Fabio will probably do best in a more calm home. He will never be the star of a sports team, but he will on occasion bat a toy around for a few minutes. You can leave your laser pointer in the drawer, he isn’t falling for it. He’s more of a netflix and chill vs a jane fonda workout video kind of guy. Fabio is a more alpha-male cat and he would do best with calm female feline companions, but would also be a great option for someone who only wants one cat. Adopt Fabio and you will have a shadow and bestie for life.

FOSTERED IN: Palatine, IL
AGE: 10 years
COLOR/BREED: Tan, Chihuahua
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes (small dogs)
CATS: Possibly

HISTORY: 
Canelo was rescued from a Chicago shelter.

ABOUT: 
Canelo is 10 years young. When he first went to his foster home, he did not know the joy of snuggling on the couch. That all changed soon! He is a paws up, binge TV watcher with his favorite person. He does have a few stuffies that he drags around, but not really into toys. He prefers small dogs. He has not done well with big dogs. He lives with older children and has met a younger child and did well.
He does stay in his crate at night and when his foster mom goes out. He does have accidents so someone who is home more to let him out would be ideal.
His favorite thing to do (besides be with his human) is to be outside and go for walks. He is even great about going outside to potty in any type of weather, true Illinois dog!
He would love a home where he could spend a lot of his time on his person’s lap being petted. He is a loyal and loving companion. He doesn’t even mind being carried like a baby once he knows you!

COLOR/BREED: Black and White Shorthair
GENDER: Female
KIDS: Yes

CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Ursula was transferred in from another rescue

ABOUT:
Ursula is a friendly, active girl who will greet you at the door (unless it's nap time...if it's nap time, she will nap hard), cuddle with you at night, and will awe you with her athletic skills. While she likes everyone, she seems especially fond of men (definitely not a requirement for adoption, but she seems to fall in love with every man she meets, kind of like her namesake, Ursula Andress). She is very athletic and likes to run around and climb the cat tree. She would be fine as an only cat, but she also loves to cuddle with the resident cats and even sometimes cuddles with the resident dogs (she is very dog friendly, but would choose a cat over a dog as a cuddle partner). She hasn't been around kids, so we don't know how she would do there, but she's quick enough to get away if she needs to. Although she is relatively small for an adult cat, she is mighty and would be a fun addition for any home.

HISTORY:
Jerry and his brother Ben were adopted out from a partner rescue as kittens. When their owner had to enter an assisted living facility we welcomed them into our program.

ABOUT:
Jerry is a handsome, large, gentle boy. He can be a little shy when meeting new people, but he does get curious and brave enough to come out and say hi. Jerry is full of purrs and headbutts once he gets to know you. Jerry might be scared at first, but he slowly can be won over with some head scratches and might even take a step towards you for more. One of their feline foster siblings isn’t always appreciative of their presence so Jerry (And his brother) are separated from the resident cats. Their foster mom spends a lot of time with them and sleeps in their room a few evenings each week. On those nights both boys jump up onto the bed to sleep with her. They also greet her at the door with meows and head butts, especially at feeding time. While one of the resident cats doesn’t appreciate them, the boys are very friendly towards her the few times they have met. The second resident cat loves to go for “visits” to Ben and Jerry’s room and they will all lay together and groom each other. If Jerry gets scared he chooses to run and hide and never lashes out or gets angry. Jerry previously lived with a senior dog, and would likely adapt well to a calm dog. Jerry will make a loving, calm companion for anyone lucky enough to adopt him.

ABOUT:
Ben is a handsome, large, calm boy. Ben is the more shy brother and takes a little bit longer to come around, but he is always gentle and nice.

HISTORY:Buttons was part of an outdoor colony, but was soon found to be friendly so his caretaker didn’t want to leave him outside.

ABOUT:Buttons is your typical big, friendly FIV+ boy. His life on the streets sure hasn’t effected his disposition. He is very gentle. When you first meet him, he may hide a bit until he knows you are a friend. After that he is very affectionate and will rub up against your legs.
Buttons does well with the other cats in the adoption center, but prefers the more easy going cats. He especially likes the friendly female cats. He is not a picky eater, and has good litter box habits.

AGE: 10 Years (Est DOB: 2009)
WEIGHT: 20lbs
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Jason was brought as a stray to a Chicago Animal Control facility.

ABOUT:
Jason is a low energy dog with simple demands. Jason loves to be with his people and will follow you from room to room. He loves to be pet, but he does not need constant attention, he just wants to be where you are. He loves to sit near you or next to you on the couch, but never asks to sit on your lap. He will cry to be invited onto the bed but then generally chooses to sleep down next to your legs. If you’ve been busy all day he will come over and whine a bit for you to scratch his head or rub his belly, but his demands are very temporary and easily fulfilled. Jason has been fostered with two large dogs and has met multiple small dogs. He generally keeps to himself, but every once in a while he gets frisky and tries to engage another dog in play. As is typical with small dogs, Jason likes to feel like he is the boss of the other dogs, so he’ll do best with a tolerant buddy. For trying hard to be a tough guy, Jason is actually a sensitive guy who gets his feelings hurt easily. Jason is not a one-person type of dog, but he does like to get to know people before they do more intimate handling with him. Jason REALLY loves the ladies and generally takes to women faster than men….like...as soon as they walk in the door and talk to him. Jason has gotten use to living in an apartment and doesn’t bark much at the coming and going of the neighbors, but he will bark at people and noises outside if the windows are open. Jason is low energy and loves to sleep most of the day, but he is up in a snap if you leave the room or sound like you’re going to do something fun. He likes to be chased around a little bit but once he’s done its back to his bed for a nap, frequently in the “dead possum” pose. Jason loves to go on walkies and will hop in the car on his own if you leave the door open. Jason has met a kitten and a feisty adult cat. He was very friendly and appropriate with both. He was intrigued by the kitten, but completely disinterested in the adult cat. We are pretty sure he is cat-friendly.

FOSTERED IN: Kankakee, IL 60901
AGE: 13 Years (Est DOB: 2005)
WEIGHT: 10lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Likely

HISTORY:
King’s owner had been keeping him in their apartment for many many years. The landlord did a surprise visit and realized they had a dog and forced the family to surrender him to a shelter immediately.

ABOUT:
Despite being blind King is an adventurous guy! When he is introduced to a new space the first thing he wants to do is walk around and investigate. King loves to cuddle and snuggle while in the house, but when he is outside he insists on being set down so that he can walk around and explore the world, he has no fear! King does bark when he can’t find anyone but if you call out to him he will quiet up and use his radar-like skills to come find you. He is being fostered with multiple other dogs and he gets along great with everyone and loves to be in the middle of the action. His foster home feels that he would probably do just as well with cats. King lives with a 13 year old boy and they get along great. He would probably do best in a home with someone who is home often, or has other friendly, social pets who can stay with him while the people are gone. King has one silly/peculiar behavior: He loves to sleep with JUST his head covered by a blanket! King’s foster mom used the following words to describe him: Sweet, Gentle, Nuzzly, Cuddly, Adventurous.
Being 13 years old, King has a few medical conditions that potential adopters should know about. He is currently on the heart medications: Vetmedin, Furosemide, and Enapril, but he is receiving a low dose so this could be increased as time goes on if needed. His vet suggested that 1 year would be the very low end of his prognosis, but she often sees dogs live up to 3 years with his condition. We estimate his monthly medications to be around $80. His general blood work is great for a dog his age and he is still very active. King’s foster mom is doing a fantastic job with him and is doing a great job managing his health and is even personally sponsoring his medications and vet visits, but she would love to share the happiness his joy extrudes with a forever home of his own. King is looking for an adopter who wants a great, happy, glass-half-full companion, but who has the financial stability to cover his monthly medications. His foster home is willing to transport King for meet and greets, so you will not be required to visit him in Kankakee.

HISTORY: Milena came from a suburban animal control with her littermates.

ABOUT: Milena is the “observer” of her litter. She loves to come and watch the action when her littermates are getting into trouble, but generally doesn’t join in. She’s the teacher’s pet of the bunch, since she rarely gets herself into mischief. She loves to cuddle with the other cats in her foster home. While she is the calmest of her litter, she is still a kitten and does have a bit of a playful side.

HISTORY:
Rookie was a stray.

ABOUT:
Rookie is a little timid but is warming up to people and other cats and dogs. He was found mewing in the corner of a garage; it’s a mystery how he got there. Another mystery is what happened to his back left leg. He does not use it much, but he gets around fine. The vet says there’s no need to do anything about his bum leg since he can walk, run, and jump, and he is not in pain. He does not play with toys much but loves to run around and explore and look outside. Most of all, he loves to eat. He will also sit in your lap to be petted and will purr up a storm.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60641
AGE: 6 Years (Est. DOB: 2013)
COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair
KIDS: No
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Rogue was found with her two 4-6 month old kittens in an industrial area.

ABOUT:
Rogue was likely never completely socialized, so she has some quirks about her. Rogue is currently being fostered with two senior female cats and she gets along with them famously. She also was very good with her own kittens before they were adopted out. She is being fostered in a home with dogs and has done well the times she has met them. We believe she would adapt to a cat-savvy dog. Rogue gets very stressed out with excessive handling. She is not comfortable being picked up and it can very very difficult to get her into her carrier. She does love less intrusive handling and will let you scratch and pet her head indefinitely. She has a bit of a playful side and likes to hide in the dark and pounce on her foster mom’s feet at feeding time in the morning. She also likes to play with toys especially mice that jingle and balls. She also likes to play with wand toys but will randomly act afraid of them. She only ever scratches on her cardboard scratching pad. She’s quite the talker and will let her foster mom know that her food bowl is still empty every 3 seconds until it’s ready. She will also mention if her water bowl needs to be filled.
Rogue will need to be adopted by an experienced cat owner. She will need time to trust her new home, but she has done really well in her foster home. She will always have some quirks related to her lack of socialization. She can be a bit unpredictable so she should not go to homes with children. Something that she would tolerate yesterday she might not tolerate today. Things that did not stress her out yesterday, might stress her out today. She would make a fabulous companion for another cat(s).
One day Rogue figured out how to open the door to her “suite.” She went right to the kitchen to demand to be fed. Her foster mom didn’t even notice it was her until she looked down. She didn’t bother looking around or meeting any of other animals, she just went straight to the food.
Her foster mom says she can be chatty and opinionated and you might even say bossy, but also scared and shy. Rogue also has a bit of a silly and playful side.

COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Some
CATS: Some

HISTORY: Sissy was rescued from animal control as a pregnant senior. She raised 5 kittens of her own plus an orphaned kitten.

ABOUT:
Sissy is a sweet, independent senior looking for her forever home. Sissy spends most of her time in the basement of her foster home, but will come running when called or if she hears her foster dad open the garage door when he gets home from work. Sissy found a button on the floor one day so her foster mom put it on a string to play with her and she loved it. Sissy will play with you nonstop if you have that button on a string! Sissy seems to appreciate routine and will come up and meow at her foster mom if she’s late scooping her litter box. She then goes down with her foster mom while she scoops and Sissy purrs and rubs all over her ankles to say thank you. While Sissy lives in a home with cats and a dog, she would probably appreciate being an only pet. She might do ok with another animal as long as they have no interest in interacting with her. While she is an independent cat Sissy loves when you talk to her and starts purring if you even think about looking at her.
