FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL
Approximate Date of Birth: August 4, 2019
COLOR/BREED: gray and white tabby, domestic short hair
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Billy and his littermate Blanca were rescued from an open access shelter in Chicago at approx 1.5 weeks of age. Billy will be neutered at the end of October and likely ready for adoption beginning November 1.

ABOUT:
Meet sweet and gentle Billy! This little boy was born in early August and despite being separated from his mother at a very young age, has grown into an active, playful, and healthy kitten.
Billy loved cozying up with a dog, cat, or human in his foster home. He loves fresh bowls of food. He loves crinkle toys and wand toys. And he loves giving nose kisses. He's talkative and already showing himself to be a very good companion cat. He's playful and active as most kittens are, but his favorite thing to do is get warm and cozy.
Since Billy is still pretty young and a bit of a needy little dude, we think he'd do best in a home where there are other young and/or active cats so that he can continue to develop his skills and burn off some of his kitten energy. The ideal home would be one with lots of cozy beds and laps and heated surfaces where he can nap the day away.
If you're looking for a gentle and affectionate kitten to add to your family, we can't recommend Billy enough. He's a real charmer.

HISTORY:
Blanca and her littermate Billy were rescued from an open access shelter in Chicago at approx 1.5 weeks of age. Blanca will be spayed at the end of October and likely ready for adoption beginning November 1.

ABOUT:
Meet sweet and sassy little Blanca! This girl was born in early August and despite being separated from her mother at a very young age, has grown into an active, playful, and healthy kitten.
Blanca has excellent climbing skills, an inquisitive mind, and is always interested in catching a snooze in a lap or cozied up on a heated bed with one of the cats or dogs in her foster home. She's a very chatty cat and is always prepared to remind the humans in her home when her kitten belly is running low on food. She's very playful and confident. In short, Miss Blanca is a perfect kitten.
Since Blanca is still pretty young and very social, she needs to go to a home where there are other young and/or active cats so that she can continue to develop her skills and get her kitten wiggles out.
If you're looking for a sweet and confident young' to add to your family, look no further than Miss B.

  • Tabby, Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

HISTORY: 
Hossa came from an open access shelter in Chicago as a solo kitten.

ABOUT: 
Since coming into rescue, this little tabby nugget has really blossomed into a friendly and playful kitten. He gets along famously with his foster cat siblings and pals around with a couple of gentle dogs at his foster home, as well.
He’s good with kids, too, though he’s still learning how to harness his kitten energy, so he’ll need support to make the right choices with his chompers. He loves spending time with humans either cuddling with them or playing. He’s also quite good at entertaining himself.
We think Hossa could excel in a busy home with other cats, dogs, and kids, but he may also do well in a home as an only cat. If you’re looking for a young and energetic tabby boy to snuggle, little Hossa could be the right cat for you!

HISTORY: 
Apricot was rescued from a Southside shelter in Chicago with his littermates.

ABOUT: 
Apricot is the biggest and goofiest of the litter. This boy loves attention--so if you could pet him at all times, he’d love that! He has the loudest purr that is practically constant when getting your attention. Chin scratches will put him right to sleep! Apricot loves to explore and play! He was brought in from a hoarding situation and was fearful of people at first. Luckily, with his foster home, he now loves to snuggle and sleep on his foster mom's lap. He will happily roll over to let you rub his big belly. Apricot is good with other cats and lives in a home with a dog. Apricot's favorite thing in the world is to play with the wand toy so he really hopes his adopters have one of those!

GENDER: Female
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Unknown
CATS: Yes

HISTORY: 
Renna was relinquished to an open admission shelter in Chicago because her family could not longer take care of her.

ABOUT: 
We rescued Renna the very same day that she came into the shelter. She was scared like most animals are going into a loud shelter, but when she went to meet the veterinarian that was volunteering that day, Renna just melted into her arms. She was fine with the vaccines and blood draw. Even though we didn’t have a spot open, we couldn’t leave her behind.
She hid in her carrier for a day or so, but couldn’t contain her love of rubbing up against everyone and everything. She was especially smitten with her foster brother, Dali, who was rescued the same day.
She is a bundle of fluffy love. This is the only way to explain her. She is great with the litter box, and a fantastic eater. She has big eyes and a face that will melt your heart. Come meet her, and get your best, “awwwww” ready!

HISTORY: 
Dali was an owner surrender to an open admission shelter in Chicago because his family was moving.

ABOUT: 
Dali is a big, regal cat. A gentle giant for sure. Dali is soft spoken, and soft with everything that he does. He loves attention, and is very good with other cats. He is very tolerant of his foster sister who really loves him and always wants to rub up against him.
He has been so adaptable to every situation that he has been put into, and still remains to have his easy-going personality.
We can’t imagine him not fitting easily into most any household.
He has great litter box habits, and a healthy eater.
He will need regular brushing for his fur, and to keep his bushy tail looking good!

FOSTERED IN: Frankfort, IL
Approximate Date of Birth: August 31, 2016
COLOR/BREED: Brown Tabby, DSH
GENDER: Female
KIDS: No
DOGS: Unknown
CATS: Some

HISTORY: 
CC was brought into an open admission Chicago shelter while pregnant

ABOUT: 
CC had her kittens in foster care, but clearly did not know what to do, and was very stressed. Here kittens were able to be helped by another group who has bottle feeders.
CC was extremely confused and we knew that her time on the streets was not easy. She doesn’t have sight in one of her eyes. Probably an injury or infection that was left untreated.
CC has settled into indoor life. She is obsessed with water. She plays in her water dish, tries to jump in the shower, and helps her foster mom dry off from the shower by licking her ankles.
CC is learning to play with toys and not hands. She plays with a wand toy, and likes to bat around hard, balls.
She has great litter box habits, and eats only dry food as wet food upsets her stomach. She can be seen lounging near a window during the day. She would be fine as an only cat, or could reside with other low key, respectful cats. She’s not a fan of cats that get right into her personal space.
CC is a cat person’s cat. She has a great personality mixed with a bit of naughty!

AGE: Est DOB: 1/2017
COLOR/BREED: Brown Bi-color Tabby DSH
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Maybe

HISTORY:
Rico came from an open admission animal control facility with his brother, Stan .

ABOUT:
Are you looking for a pair of love bugs to provide you with companionship? Are you wary of kittens and their wild and wacky ways? Are you looking to improve the lives of two cats who have had their world turned upside down?
Look no further than Rico and Stan!
These boys are the gold standard when it comes to easy adult cats. They are friendly and affectionate, impeccable litter box users, cuddly and curious, yet mature and down for pretty serious loafing.
Rico is the slight more reserved of the two but once he knows you’re opening the food cans, he loves you! He is a sweet lap cat with the softest fur and brilliant white socks. He’s a great eater, always excited to hang out with humans, but somewhat unsure of the other cats in his foster home (with whom he has had very limited exposure to thus far). He is a gentle boy, never sassy, and really just looking for a home where he can feel safe and well-fed and adored.
We believe Rico and Stan are a bonded pair and prefer to adopt them out together.

Stan is the more outgoing of the two - he’s always ready to meet a new person and appears relatively unfazed by the presence of other cats and dogs in his foster home. He likes to look out the window at flora and fauna and passersby. And he LOVES to eat! He’s shows some curiosity about wand toys and catnip toys, but his favorite thing is to hang out with humans.
We believe Stan and Rico are a bonded pair and prefer to adopt them out together.

Nylah shares foster space with 2 young, male cats. Nylah has no problem giving them a “hiss” to put them in their place if they get too rowdy.
Nylah would fit into most any household. She is a laid back lady with excellent litter box habits and a lot of love to give.

ABOUT: 
Fritz has a lot to say. We are not sure what he is talking about, but it may go like this: “Pet me…I love you….Pet me…..let me sit on your lap…..I don’t just love you because you have thumbs!”
When he does get on your lap, he snuggles into the crook and just starts purring! He has great litter box habits, and does well with other cats. He is very confident and outgoing. He does walk right up to cats to say, hello. He has the cutest white patch on his chest, and will make an excellent companion cat.

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

HISTORY: 
Klondike was surrendered to an open admission south side shelter because his family couldn’t take care of him.

ABOUT: 
Klondike caught our attention at the shelter, because he would reach through the bars to grab our arms. He would roll on his back and rub the cage. He became known as the silly, friendly guy in the front cage. Everyone knew him and as soon as we had an opening, we brought him into our program. His silly antics and playful nature continues on in his foster home. He lives in a foster room with 2 other kitties that he gets along with very well.
What would he do for a Klondike bar? We are not sure, but he will do anything for his meals or treats. This guy is very food motivated! We didn’t think his eyes could get any bigger than they already are, but when he saw his wet food, they about popped out.
Klondike would do well in almost any house hold. Come meet him so he can win you over!

COLOR/BREED: Orange Shorthair
GENDER: Female

DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

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

ABOUT:
Attention ginger cat & floofy tail lovers!!
Want to adopt yourself an interesting cat? Look no farther.
1) 80% of all orange cats are male. Vigo is one of the 20% that are female. We knew that most orange cats are male, so we didn’t really look too hard before sending him..er..her...of to be neutered. Well. Vigo had ovaries so he (she) got spayed instead!
2) She sleeps in flower pots on top of dead plants. If you’re a horrible plant parent and have a lot of dead plants, Vigo will make herself at home on them.
3) She’s fine being held until you want to bring her out of somewhere that she shouldn’t be. Then she doesn’t love being held.
4) She loves to bat toys around, but her favorite toy is table-top-clutter. SO many fun things can be found in the piles of things that humans “are going to get around to.”
Vigo is an adaptable, independent older kitten. She’s past the crazy kitten stage, but does get a case or two of the zoomies every day. During the day she likes to play, zoom, and nap on the dining chairs. In the evenings she likes to cuddle. Vigo is being fostered with a cat and she coexists very seamlessly. She is also very comfortable with the resident dog.

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

ABOUT:
Ready for a sob story? 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 just adorable and tiny and very sweet. She simply needs patient and positive interactions with the world and she will likely bloom into a very devoted and loving cat. Doesn't that sound rewarding? Let's give Abby the great life she deserves.

He'll rub his head on the dogs, and play for a minute or two at a time. Captain is into everything. He wants to know what you're doing and why. He's fascinated with the bathroom sink and the dishwasher. He also wants to cuddle on his terms.

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.

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.

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.

HISTORY:
Buttercup was surrendered with her kitten to an open admission shelter.

ABOUT:
Buttercup is a very laid-back even-tempered girl. She is not needy and knows how to go with the flow. Buttercup is currently being fostered with a few other cats and three large dogs. She is completely unphased by the other pets in the home. She doesn’t mind if someone chooses to lay with her, but she doesn’t go out of her way to find someone else. She would do great in a home with other pets, or as an only cat, as she is “cool with whatever.”
Buttercup was previously at our adoption center but she spent a tad too much time at the food bowl so we moved her to a foster home where her food intake could be managed. Buttercup is never late for a meal, but she also does enjoy playing and exercise. The laser pointer and a wand toy are at the top of her list. Buttercup is being fostered with two teenage children and she is a very patient lady who never seems to get angry or annoyed.
We believe Buttercup will be very agreeable and friendly with children, but because she is so relaxed and chill she might not love a very busy household with young active children. Although she is affectionate and loves scratches Buttercup generally chooses to sleep by herself at night. Also...Buttercup is convinced that the absolute best time to solicit attention is when someone is using the restroom and will race to join you!

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

ABOUT:
Sweet and gentle Milena is looking for a special home to adopt her. Milena has been with us since she was a little kitten, but she has always been the shy/reserved type. She has been in her current foster home, waiting for adoption, for more than a year. Milena is never going to be a lap cat nor a snuggler, but she is fantastic with other animals. She is currently being fostered with 2 dogs, and 4 cats. Because Milena is more “into” animals than she is people, we will require that she be adopted into a home with at least one other pet who will appreciate and welcome her company. She loves to curl up and hang with the other cats and dogs, but has never been much into playing.
Milena’s ideal home might be one that is looking to add an additional pet as a companion to an existing pet(s), but are concerned about having enough attention to share with another pet. Maybe they work long hours and have an existing pet who could benefit from a buddy, but likes to be the center of attention when it comes to people. Milena will never compete for attention.
Although Milena doesn’t always want people all-up-in-her-business, she is very curious. She loves to sit back and watch the activity of the house. Her foster mom says if she gets scared away it’s only a few minutes before her curiosity draws her back in. You might even say she’s a little creepy in the way that she is always around 🙂 She likes to be around to observe, but will always be at a distance. She will let her foster mom give her some butt scratches on occasion, but they don’t last long and she is never one to seek them out.
Milena’s current foster home has young grandchildren that visit frequently. She always chooses to remove herself from the environment when the kids are around, so she will do best in a home with no children. Visiting children won’t be a problem, she’s smart enough to remove herself until they leave. But overall Milena needs a quiet, predictable environment that cannot be provided by a home with young children.
Chi-Town Shy Cat Program:
Shy cats tend to spend more time waiting for their forever homes because their initial meet and greets don’t go well because they are usually hiding under a chair or behind the couch. Most of these shy cats have come around with their primary caretaker and just need to adjust to a new person and environment.
We have a program specifically designed to give them the chance to shine. Our shy cats are available for a foster to adopt period of 30 days so that they can decompress and become comfortable allowing their potential adopter to get to know them. We will bring all the supplies needed, if the foster chooses to make it permanent and adopt at the end of the 30 days they get to keep all the supplies.
Milena is eligible for adoption through the Chi-Town Shy Cat Program.

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 socialized to be a pet cat. For this reason, she has some quirks that will require her to have an extra special adopter. She has a history of co-habitating well with other adult cats. She currently spends a lot of time with one of the confident resident cats in her foster home and while they occasionally get into cat politics, they mostly get along well and enjoy time with each other.
Rogue has come to enjoy the company of humans but always on her own terms! She doesn't like to be handled, but does allow nail trims. She doesn't like to be cuddled, but does enjoy a good head scratch. She loves meal time and wand toys and she is very chatty!
Rogue also seems to be quite comfortable around dogs. She's curious about them, but unbothered by their presence.
Rogue's favorite thing in the world is a cardboard scratcher. It's unclear if she likes the feeling of the scratching or the resulting tiny bits of cardboard she gets to flail all over the room after a good scratch sesh.
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.
Rogue is a talker and opinionated and you might even say bossy, but also reserved and shy. Rogue also has a bit of a silly and playful side.
