Rescue Me ID: 17-06-26-00358Ixchel (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ixchel is the white and grey cat at the top of the cat tree. Isis is the stripped cat below. Ixchel and Isis are sweet, loving, and playful kitties. Both cats pictured are siblings but can be adopted separately or together. Both cats are spayed and microchipped. The cats need to be rehomed because my newborn and I are very allergic. The cats have been residing in the basement away from the rest of the house due to the allergy for the last four months. These kitties need a home with a non-allergic, cat-loving human pronto.

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chicago, IL - Adopt Missy the Snuggly Green-Eyed Tabby Cat Missy is a beautiful, soft, super sweet, loving and gentle nine-year-old, green-eyed tabby cat looking for a loving guardian. This gentle soul was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control and almost lost her life. She was so scared she hid in a corner and wouldn't show her face. A caring volunteer brought her home where her personality absolutely blossomed. Missy is a sensitive and lovely girl with the softest fur you've ever felt. She would love a home with someone who is home more often than not - perhaps someone who works from home or is retired. She will lay in your lap ... (Read More)and snuggle for as long as you'll have her. She also loves hanging out on the window sill to stare at birds. While she tolerates other cats, we think she'll be happiest as the one and only feline in the home. Her current foster mom throws treats and she fetches them like a small dog! It's adorable. Because of her timidity, we think she'd be happiest with adults and teenagers. Small children might scare her. She loves to be brushed and pet. She loves to be snuggled and held and she adores having her butt scratched. Missy is healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped and virus-tested negative. She has a slight heart murmur but she was able to have a dental and had a benign growth removed from her mouth. She has all her claws, but lets you trim them. Her adoption fee of $50 benefits rescued pets. To meet and possibly adopt Missy, please contact Sheri at sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. She is currently being fostered in Chicago.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-22-00574Freya (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Freya is a gentle old soul. She may be getting old at 9 years old but still loves to play with a catnip toy or a string. She is pre-diabetic which means that she should be kept on a grain, carb and starch free food. I would prefer she stay on the wet cat food that she is on since she likes it and it is helping her. Almost all dry foods will have a starch in it which is bad for her. She does not like kids at all. She would do well as an only cat or with another cat that would leave her alone. She is a dilute tortie so she wouldn't do well with another dilute tortie because they tend to be hard headed and territorial.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Kitten

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spades (about 14 weeks as of 6/12) is a male cinnamon* tabby shorthaired kitten. Spades was rescued with his littermates from a feral cat colony in Barrington just as they had been weaned. This rambunctious boy has two modes- crazy goofy playing and super sweet snuggling. Don't be surprised if he switches between the two quite often; he has no attention span. As the only boy in his litter Spades is bigger than his sisters and younger foster siblings and has taken on the role of 'Alpha Kitten'- he likes to gently but persistently dominate other kittens and will even push adult cats out of the food dish. This guy might be too much for an older ... (Read More)cat who thinks they rule their home but with cats who don't mind some rough play and are okay with being bossed around a little he gets along great! He has spent some time living with large and small dogs so could probably befriend any cat friendly dog and is sure to love most any child that will play and cuddle with him. *Yes, we're 99% sure Spades' unusual dusty brownish background with dark orange stripes is not a normal orange tabby but rather 'cinnamon,' a rare recessive mutation of the black pigment gene. We promise he's not dirty! (Less)

Domestic Cat    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Amicus lives up to his name - he just wants to be your friend! This beautiful, easygoing tux kitty is a young 10 years old. He came to ACL after his owner passed away suddenly. Poor Amicus was heartbroken for a few days, but he's adjusted well to all the love coming his way, and he's ready to find a home for the second half of his life. Amicus is an affectionate boy who will rub and purr for your attention. He's happy to lay in the sun and watch the world go by, so we think he'd be a great addition to a quiet home or a home that doesn't have time to entertain a crazy kitten! He loves to be pet and talked to - it's clear that Amicus has been ... (Read More)well-loved! He lived happily with another cat, and we believe Amicus would especially enjoy going home with another kitty. He'll do fine with gentle kids of all ages.

    In Ancient Egypt, cats were seen as sacred creatures with supernatural powers. One look into Vanessa startling green eyes and you'll want to worship them, too! It's not often that we see a pure white cat like Vanessa - she's definitely a special kind of feline. Vanessa came to ACL from a local animal control where she had been surrendered to the shelter. She's an easygoing lady who makes friends fast. Vanessa is about three years old with lots of pep in her step. She'll do well with another friendly cat, kids of all ages, and perhaps the right dog companion. Vanessa is currently hypnotizing many potential adopters - be next in line for her ...

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mitch (born about May 12, 2016) is a brown tabby tuxedo neutered male. Mitch was a feisty young kitten when our volunteer trapper in Highland Park saw that he was moving oddly and made sure she caught him so he could be treated. The broken hip was easily fixed by Dr. Luaces at Care Animal Hospital. Since Mitch was already 10 weeks old and hadn't had loving human contact before the surgery and then needed time to heal after the surgery, it took him a while to understand how great humans are. He's now ready for cuddles as well as being great with other cats. He has a couple of Labs in his foster home for company.

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tiger and Tabby are snugly, playful, friendly and extremely sweet, nine-year-old, chubby tabby siblings looking for a loving guardian together. Tabby and Tiger lived with a family with a gentle-natured dog. When the family added two more larger dogs with a high prey drive, the cats went into hiding and the family decided to find them a new home. So, Tabby and Tiger are in foster care with me until they find the perfect new home. These gentle and sweet cats love to be held and pet. They will head butt you and roll over for belly rubs. Tabby, the female is 11 pounds and Tiger, the male is 13 pounds. They have each lost one pound each in the ... (Read More)two months since I took them in. They have only eaten dry food all their lives, so they turn their noses up at any canned food and even walk away from tuna or baby food! They have perfect litter box habits and are very well behaved and fun to have in the home. They prefer to be the only felines on the premises and are indoor-only cats. They are fine with gentle natured dogs, but really would be happiest as the only pets in the home. Tabby and Tiger are very healthy, spayed and neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped and virus-tested negative. Their adoption fee of $150 as a pair benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits. They come complete with carriers, food, litter box and everything you need to care for them! To meet and possibly adopt these sweet cats, please contact sheri@petraits.com for an adoption application. They are being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. (Less)

    Find a Penny, pick her up...you know the rest! Our gorgeous tabby girl Penny is nothing if not good luck. She's a beautiful two year old lady who came to ACL from a high volume animal control. She was nervous when she first arrived at the shelter, so she spent time with a loving foster to help her relax. Her foster mom reports that Penny is an absolute dream in the home! She's very social, always wanting to see where you are and what you're up to. She loves to explore and adventure around in her new space - it took her only a few hours to acclimate to her new home and find all the best places to watch the birds. Even better, Penny is smart ...

She did well with the chihuahua in her foster home, though she was definitely the bossier of the two animals. We think she'd really enjoy the right canine companion to play with! Penny is the great mix of spunky, smart, and sweet - and that combination is sure to bring you luck! She'll do well with respectful kids 5 and up and other animals after a proper introduction. She is a little nervous to be back at the shelter, but give her a minute to warm up, and she'll be yours for life! (Less)

    This beautiful Tortoiseshell girl needs someone to mend her broken heart and let her know everything is going to be ok again. MADDIE's owner passed away and the family could not keep her so she was left at the Chicago Animal Care Control facility where she got overlooked by many rescues because of her shy and withdrawn personality. This girl is actually desperate to be loved and longing for a new family. She accepts pets straight away and although scared she will come back for more pets when realizes everything is fine. We just need someone patient and understanding that is willing to allow MADDIE to feel safe and reassured for a couple of ...

MADDIE is best as a single cat and would blossom in a calmer environment where she can look outside of a window and chirp at the birds while her new family spoils her with love and tender care. MADDIE has been in foster care (not for her own fault) for quite few months and she really deserves to find her own family that will keep her furrever. Take a look at her video and hopefully she will steal your heart. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Zack! Zack is a young handsome boy who came to ACL as a stray. Zack was stressed out in the shelter, so he's living it up in foster care - his foster mom reports he's a real gem! Once Zack feels comfortable, he's a love-bug and enjoys play-time! He'll weave between your legs, head-butt your hand for pets, and mew for your attention. Zack is looking for a home with adopters who will allow him ample time to warm-up and explore in his new home. Zack will do best in an adult home as he tends to get startled easily by loud noises and commotion. We also think he'd prefer to be the only pet, but he may do okay with another like-minded, ...

    Meet Saya! Saya came to ACL as a stray and when she arrived, she was in need of some TLC! She had a patch of fur missing on her head, which has since grown back beautifully! Saya was lucky to go to a temporary foster home until she was ready for adoption. Per her foster family, once she has time to warm up, she's very sweet and friendly and adores pets. Her favorite are head and chin scratches. You'll know she's enjoying herself when she kneads her paws and 'makes biscuits'! While Saya does not care to be picked up, she may make her way into your lap if you're lucky. Saya's adopters should give her ample time to settle in her new home, and ...

He was adopted at about 5 months of age but his adopter has fallen on hard times and cannot keep him. He gets along well with the cats in his foster home (except the one that chases him all the time).

    Squeaky (8-10 years old as of January, 2017) is a neutered male black short-haired cat. 'Squeaky' got his name from his very distinct and frequent meow, which is not actually high pitched or squeaky but a deep soulful yowl.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Genevieve (about 2 and a half years old as of July, 2016) is a spayed female tortoiseshell shorthaired cat. Genevieve was found outside as a ridiculously friendly and outgoing stray. We can only guess at her age and background, but because she was so petite and still so playful we think she was just under 1 year old when we found her and she's still like a big kitten! We also suspect she was raised from very early on as an only cat because she is so open and loving with all people but so terrible at social interactions with most other cats. Although she has adapted to life in a foster home with lots of other cats she often gets upset just by ... (Read More)the sight of other cats and sometimes throws tantrums around them. When she does try to make friends she just sneaks up on them and tries to play, roughly, like she never learned the right way to go about it from a mother cat and littermates. She even plays a little too rough with people so we wouldn't recommend her for a family with small children, but for the right family that likes to 'razzle' their cat and isn't phased by play bites she'll be tons of fun! If she's not playing she loves to be cradled like a baby and held or carried around for ages- she is a very attention seeking cat and will probably do best as a spoiled only cat or sharing the spotlight with just one or two other young, playful, and hopefully more submissive cats, like her shy foster friend Sunshine.

    Raven (3-4 years old as of July, 2016) is a black long-haired spayed female that was rescued as part of a Beach Park trailer park trapping. She was one of 16 (some pregnant) cats that one resident had tried to take in to her small trailer.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Harriett is a beautiful and sweet eight-year-old, 8.9-pound (petite), female black and white lap cat looking for a loving guardian. Harriett will happily sit in your lap for hours if you let her. She is very playful and will roll in catnip until she drools. She also likes to sit on the top ledge of her cat tree to look out the window and meow at people walking by. Harriett gets along with a dog in her current home, but she has never been tested with other cats. She would really thrive as the one and only pet in the home to have a human companion all to herself. She greets her current mom at the door when she comes home from work; she is ... (Read More)very dog-like. She is not one to hide. She likes to be out in the open, playing and exploring. She loves people but runs from small children, so she'd do best in a home with adults and teens. When it's cool out, she likes to join her mom in bed. When it's hot, she prefers sleeping in her cat tree. She has perfect litter box habits. She is extremely healthy and has been well taken care of. She has all her claws. She is spayed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, virus-tested negative and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $75 includes everything you need to care for her: carrier, litter box, litter, food, bowls, cat tree, toys and vet records. Her current mom found her in a construction site and has raised her from a tiny kitten. Sadly, due to worsening allergies and asthma, she is forced to find her new living accommodations. To meet and possibly adopt Harriet, please contact Laura at laurafosler@hotmail.com or 312-576-1394. She is currently living in the West Lakeview/Roscoe Village neighborhood of Chicago. (Less)

    Marvin (about 1 year old as of June 2017) is a neutered, male, brown tabby, short-haired kitten. Marvin was trapped at a feral cat colony in Antioch when he was a few months old. Marvin is a little shyer than his siblings Lola and Sylvester, part of that may be because he had a terrible wound on his leg that required extensive treatment and even though it's all completely healed up now, he's still a little behind and still a little more shy. He currently lives with other cats, kids, and dogs of all sizes but because of his shyness we think he'd do best with older kids and calmer dogs that would make it easier for him to relax and feel ... (Read More)safe. His foster mom says he is very loving and seeks attention and is best buddies with Turbo as well as getting along well with other cats. (Less)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, FIV 

    Hook (about 3 years old as of November, 2016) is a neutered male grey shorthaired cat. Hook started showing up at a feral colony in Waukegan as a scared stray cat back in March of 2016. One day in May he came by to eat with a broken leg bent like a 'Hook' but avoided all efforts to trap him for 5 months. Finally just before the weather turned he was caught and turned out to be very sweet. Unfortunately his bent leg was entirely healed in place and the vet couldn't do anything to straighten it without causing him more pain, so now he just has one weird leg and walks a little funny with a short stride. He is happy to be an indoor cat ... (Read More)again and likes to sit up and beg for treats and be cuddled and petted. He gets along well with cats and kids, but we haven't seen how he handles living with dogs yet so we would recommend only a very calm, respectful dog for him. Hook has tested positive for antibodies to FIV, a slow acting virus that can cause mild to moderate immune impairment. It is contagious to other cats but only through deep bite wounds, something not likely to happen given a slow introduction, so we will be happy to adopt him to an FIV negative cat family as long as they will be cautious and patient integrating him to their home. Most cats with FIV live to be seniors and pass away from common old age conditions, so it doesn't mean he won't have a long, happy life! (Less)

    Sweet William (about 6 1/2 months old as of 10/19/2016) is a neutered, male, black, short-haired kitten. William was born to a feral mother cat who had literally been dumping her kittens at one of our caretakers' house for years.

    Daisy (about 6 1/2 months old as of 10/19/2016) is a female black and white shorthaired kitten. Daisy was born to a feral mother cat who had literally been dumping her kittens at one of our caretakers' house for years. They finally caught her but she was about to give birth, so these lucky kittens have been inside their whole lives. Daisy is a very vocal kitty who likes to meow about things as she goes through her day and will sometimes call out to figure out where people are if she wanders off alone expecting someone to call back to her or come find her. That sounds awfully needy but she is actually the most independent kitty from her ... (Read More)litter. She is sweet and affectionate but doesn't want to cuddle until she is done playing and doesn't feel the need to be on top of someone smothering them every time she gets a few pets. That said, when she is in full cuddle mode she loves serious, firm pets so strong they pull the skin around her eyes back and exaggerate her already naturally silly long skinny face. She is very energetic and alert which can make her seem jumpy or skittish, but it's really just her goofy, playful nature showing. She does well with kids, gets along great with the other cats and kittens in her foster home, and although she hasn't had much dog experience we think she is relaxed enough to live happily with a cat-friendly dog. She has a lot of energy and would do best with a playmate to wear her out like one of her siblings. Daisy's siblings are William, Johnny and Primrose. (Less)

    Primrose (born 3/30/17) is a spayed,female, black tuxedo, short-haired kitten. Primrose was born to a feral mother cat who had literally been dumping her kittens at one of our caretakers' house for years. They finally caught her but she was about to give birth, so these lucky kittens have been inside their whole lives. Prim looks the most like her mother and takes after her the most too. She was the last kitten to decide people were good despite what her wild mama told her. She has made a big turn around and is now a super well-adjusted, loving little girl. She follows her foster mom around like a lovesick puppy. She likes to quietly bug her ... (Read More)foster family for attention, sitting and staring at them expectantly until they give in and pet her! Primrose purrs over just about anything in the comfort of her foster home and although she doesn't like being held or snuggled for long periods of time, as much as her siblings do, she is super affectionate and loves kisses on her little muzzle. She chirps with delight when she is really excited about something and loves to play. She throws down with her big brothers, William and Johnny, with no reservations. Prim has done well at adoption events with kids but we think in her forever home she'd do better with older children. She gets along great with other cats but hasn't had dog experience, so she'd probably do better with a calm, quiet, older dog that is very respectful of kitties. She has a lot of energy and would do best with a playmate to wear her out like one of her siblings Daisy, William and Johnny. (Less)

She rolls over happily for catnip and soft cat beds. She likes to bat around at feather toys too! She's happy to get in and out of her cat carrier; something that's certainly not an easy task for most cats.

Domestic Cat    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Grayson (about 10-12 yrs old as of 08/2016) is a neutered male grey tabby tuxedo cat. Grayson was a friendly stray that had been living outside a woman's house for the last 8 years but she never wanted to bring him in. When his foster heard about him and came over to check on him, Grayson ran over to her vehicle to greet her, stood up on his hind legs to beg for pets and started rolling around in the gravel so she could pet his belly. He was emaciated and crawling with fleas but it didn't seem to bother him one bit as long as he was getting attention. She took him to get neutered and then into foster care. While he was at the vet, it was ... (Read More)discovered that he had 3 bad teeth that needed to be pulled. Grayson is happy to be an indoor cat now. His fleas are gone, he is eating so much better without those bad teeth and he's putting weight back on. Grayson seems in pretty good health for a cat his age that was living outside un-neutered for years. He is good with other cats and could do okay with a calm, respectful dog, but too much activity of little kids seems to upset him. We'd rather see him go to a family where the youngest kids are at least mature preteens. He is an incredible cuddler and scoots right under a blanket with his foster mom and settles in right next to her. (Less)

    Nubs is a shy, loving, talkative and very cat-friendly, three-year-old, golden-eyed male buff tabby cat looking for a loving guardian. This gorgeous cat lets you hold and snuggle him, and loves to be combed and brushed. While he's not much of a lap cat, he will seek out your affection with people and other cats. Once he's acclimated, he's perfectly relaxed in the home. Nubs was rescued in the East Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago where he was thought to be a feral. A feline-lover fed him for a year outside before realizing that he wanted to follow her into her home. She has been fostering him inside every since. Nubs has all his claws ...

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Dottie (about 2 yrs old as of 07/2016) is a spayed, female, calico point, short-haired, Siamese mix cat. Dottie was rescued as part of our Beach Park trailer park trapping and was one of 16 or more cats one resident had tried to take into her small trailer. Due to the cramped and unstable conditions, we don't know that she ever got to live as a normal pet cat. That is probably why she is a little shy at first. She seems calm and confident even as she squirms to run and hide while we're carrying her around at Petco, and at home she is happy to be out and about. She doesn't like to be carried around but likes when you pet her, especially ... (Read More)around her ears. She's an especially good hunter of toys. She loves treats and will come running for them. Dottie is not picky about food and eats wet and dry. She has a very sweet nature and could probably be a lap cat given the chance. Obviously she has lived with other cats just fine. She is tolerant of the small dog living in her foster home. We think she'd do well with older children who could be quiet and gentle around her but she'd probably be too easily startled by hyper toddlers or preschoolers. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Walker (1 yr old as of 07/2016) is a neutered, male, brown tabby and white, short-haired cat. Walker and his brothers were found outside semi-feral at about 4 months old, about twice as old as we like to get kittens in for taming, but they were such beautiful boys and gentle enough that we thought we should give them a try. Because Walker has been pretty shy in the past and sometimes still gets startled by too many people walking around him, we think he'd do better in home without small kids. He likes cuddling with other cats, gets along great with lazy cats, relaxed cats and alpha cats, but nervous cats tend to set him off and he goes a ... (Read More)little wacky teasing them, so we'd like to see him go to a forever home with either confident kitties or as an only cat with people at home often to play with him and wear him out. Walker gets along great with his foster family's cat friendly lap dog, but would probably have a hard time adjusting to bigger, hyper dogs for the same reason of just being nervous around too much commotion.

However, as time went on, Marissa's family expanded to include more members, including a child, and she felt intimidated by the new additions an was returned to ACL in early 2016. Marissa enjoyed a 'summer retreat' in a foster home for a few weeks. Her foster mom reported that she settled in well and enjoys pets when she requests them! Marissa is the kind of kitty who prefers to be the star of the show - this cat knows what she wants, when she wants it, and she knows how to ask for it! She would do best in a quiet, adult-only home with adopters who are ... (Read More)looking for a cat who has tons of personality. She enjoys pets on her head and sides of face, but prefers not to be pet on her back. Marissa will do best in an environment where she will be an 'only child' - human and animal! Come meet Marissa at the Animal Care League today! (Less)

Health: Neutered, Abused/Neglected, Incontinent 

    Bobbie is a neutered male orange tabby who loves being held. He likes to talk & follow you around. He was hit by a car and a board, so his back was broken and he walks funny. He is very tolerant of cats, but has not yet been introduced to dogs. Vocal, he likes to talk and follow you around. About 7 years old. An application and home visit will precede his adoption. His adoption fee includes a vet exam, vaccines, fecal and urine test results, flea and ear mite check microchip with Free registration. His bladder must be expressed twice daily (every 12 hours) as he does not urinate on his own due to his injury. Very easy to do once you are ... (Read More)shown how. He is a very sweet boy!

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, FIV 

    Elm (born August 2015) is a neutered, male, grey, short-haired cat. Elm and his family suddenly showed up last fall and completely overwhelmed one of our small managed cat colonies. Elm quickly grew from a very shy kitten to a cat who cries to be picked up and one who loves butt scratches! He gets along great with other cats and is used to a big dog and one big noisy bird! He will probably do better with at least one other young playful animal companion to keep him company. Elm tested positive for antibodies to FIV, a slow acting virus that can cause mild to moderate immune impairment. Our vet says he's a very healthy cat. FIV is contagious ... (Read More)to other cats but only through deep bite wounds, something not likely to happen given a slow introduction, so we will be happy to adopt him to an FIV negative cat family as long as they will be cautious and patient integrating him to their home. Most cats with FIV live to be seniors and pass away from common old age conditions, so it doesn't mean he won't have a long, happy life! (Less)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ellwood (about 1 yr old as of 07/2016) is a neutered, male, grey tuxedo, short-haired cat. Ellwood was caught during a mass trapping of more than 30 cats where 2/3 of the colony were kittens 4 months and younger. He was one of the oldest kittens caught and understandably he is still a little shy, especially with new people or places. Ellwood has become very sweet, he'll meow for attention, loves being pet, and will even get his purr going and roll over for belly rubs if you warm him up. He is still easily startled and will sometimes get spooked and run and hide for a minute to collect himself. He's getting braver every day though, and has ... (Read More)always had a soft spot for little kids who he lets do anything to him, even when a toddler made a game of dripping water on his head! He might never be a super outgoing cat with new people and places, but we know for his one special forever family he will be an AMAZING little buddy. Ellwood has been fostered with other cats, dogs of all sizes, and kids 2-11 years old, so he'd be great for just about any home that will continue to work with him to build his confidence. We think he'd do best with at least one other young playful animal to keep him company. He'll be happier with someone around 24/7 and he seems to have more confidence with a role model around to show him how to be brave. (Less)

    Duce (about 1 yr old as of 07/2016) is a neutered, male, grey tabby, short-haired cat. Duce was caught during a big trapping of free-roaming cats in Waukegan. Duce was one of the oldest kittens caught and is understandably still very shy. He will probably never be a very outgoing cat with new people and places, but he loves being pet by people he trusts and has become very affectionate. Duce is very submissive, gets along great with other cats and will do best in a home with at least one other playful cat to keep him company. He is also used to a calm big dog but since he is a little more shy we think he'd do better without big or hyper dogs ...

She will probably never be a very outgoing cat with new people and places, but we know when she gets comfortable she can settle down and be pretty sweet.

    Bandit (about 1 yr old as of 05/2016) is a neutered, male, black tuxedo, short-haired cat. Bandit was caught during a mass trapping of more than 30 cats where 2/3 of the colony were kittens 4 months and under. Bandit was one of the 4 month old kittens and was sent on his own to a foster home to be a companion to a lone 4 month old kitten from a different colony. It took him a while to really come out of his shell having had such a late start living with people, but today Bandit is one happy cat. He's not the cuddliest guy who will come force his way into your lap or smother you with affection, but he is very outgoing, loves to explore, and ... (Read More)always comes running for treats. He is clever and playful, maybe too clever and playful to be around small pets (rodents, birds, unsecured fish tanks, etc.) as true to his name he has ways of figuring out how to get into things he shouldn't be able to. In his foster home he gets along great with other cats and a medium sized cat friendly dog (as long as he isn't being chased!) and is even used to sharing space with small humans! (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Parker (1 yr old as of 09/2016) is a neutered, male, all black, short-haired cat. Parker and his brothers (Walker and Tucker) were found outside semi-feral at about 4 months old, about twice as old as we like to get kittens in for taming, but they were such beautiful boys and gentle enough that we thought we should give them a try. Parker is, without a doubt, a great companion to other cats. He is a very smart and independent cat. He'll sniff out which kitchen cabinet holds the treats and then figures out how to open it! Parker also likes to see what's on TV every once in a while. He loves older cats. He has taken to his foster family's 9 ... (Read More)year old male cat like a father figure. He's used to having small dogs around as well. Parker will allow you to pet him when he wants but he does not like to be picked up, however; when you can catch him, he'll let you pet him for a little while. He has come a long way and would make a great 1st or second pet. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ziva (2 yrs old as of 07/2016) is a spayed, female, black, long-haired cat. She was picked up with her friendly stray mom over the winter. Unfortunately, Ziva was already 4 months old and pretty wild from growing up out on the streets. Although we knew she would be a challenge, we worked with her because her mom was such a nice cat and little Ziva was already pretty submissive whenever we reached in to pet her. Now she has grown to love being pet and will even put up with being held for a few minutes (who can resist all that fluffiness?) before squirming because she wants down. Ziva is shy around new people, but she'll play and play once ... (Read More)she gets to know you. She simply adores cuddling and playing with other cats and definitely needs to be part of a multi-cat home. Her little foster brother Rootbeer is her best buddy and she'd do especially well with him by her side, but as long as she has another young, playful cat around we think she'll do great. She does fine with dogs and has gotten used to the older child she lives with, but would probably prefer a home with no children or only older, quieter children who will give her the space she needs to settle in to a new forever family.

    Rootbeer (about 1 1/2 yrs old as of 07/2016) is a neutered, male, brown tabby, short-haired cat. Rootbeer was born outside in October 2014 and trapped as a freezing little 10 week old with his sister right before New Year's. Because they were a few weeks older than ideal, it took some time for them to gain confidence with people. Rootbeer loves cheek scratches and has an amazingly loud motor when you get him purring. He's still shy around new people and absolutely hates being held, but every night he can be found sleeping with someone in his foster family. He definitely loves to play with other cats and people, though some days he just keeps ... (Read More)to himself but then again that could change in a quiet home! Because of his lower confidence and because he LOVES other cats so much we think Rootbeer will do best adopted with another cat or kitten to keep him company and bring out his brave side. His foster sister Ziva is his best buddy and it would be great if they could stay together. He is being fostered around cats, dogs, and older kids so he could adjust to a lot of different families, but we think he'd do better with no kids or only older, quieter kids who won't make it hard for this shy boy to settle in.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Terrence (2 yrs old as of 03/2016) is a neutered, male, buff tabby, short-haired cat. Terrence and his sister were born in a neighborhood of retirees that took pity on them and fed them enough to thrive, giving them just enough attention to keep them interested in people but never teaching them how to be a 'pet' cats used to being picked up or living underfoot in a home. They were happy living this in-between life until winter came early and most of the people who fed them left for vacation homes in warmer climates, leaving these guys hungry, scared and lonely. When found, we took them into foster care where they've been slowly coming ... (Read More)around. After many months, Terrence seems happy living inside but hasn't really bonded with people yet. He'll play with toys for human interaction but hates being reached for and doesn't seem thrilled about being held if you do manage to catch him. He gets along great with the other cats and dogs in his foster home. He quickly becomes a big brother to any new fosters that come into the foster home, so he could be a great companion for existing pets of a family willing to give him as long as he needs to come around to really trusting them.

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Petra is a gorgeous, four-year-old, female brown and white classic tabby with golden eyes looking for a loving guardian. Petra was being fed outside and she was very consistent about showing up at the same place and same time every day. My friend told me about what he thought was a pregnant cat. Turned out she is just well-fed! I went to meet her and took her home (in a trap). When I brought her in to get spayed, I found that she had trapped a couple times before ... so she had already been spayed and micro-chipped. So, I got her vaccines up-dated, and had her re-checked for viruses, and treated for fleas and worms. Petra doesn't have ... (Read More)much use for humans. She likes when they keep her well-fed ... she loves her canned food. And she's very neat and tidy and uses her litter box perfectly. She does enjoy the company of other cats and hangs out with them happily in my house ... until I come in the room. And, then she darts back to her cat tree to hide. It's a bit insulting, but I think a patient cat-loving person can bring her around to appreciating humans a bit more. Why would someone take in a semi-feral cat? She'll live longer in the great indoors, she is a good friend to my other cats, and she's a no-bother kind of girl ... clean and neat. And, she's a challenge for those that enjoy socializing shy cats. Petra is extremely healthy, spayed, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, virus-tested negative and treated with revolution for fleas and worms. To meet and possibly adopt Petra, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. She is currently living in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sunshine (5 yrs old as of 04/2016) is a spayed, female, orange and white, long-haired cat. Sunshine showed up in one of our feral colonies and had kittens before she could be trapped and fixed. When we caught her and her newborn kittens, we were amazed at how easy going she was with us as we checked out her kittens, and baffled when she let one of our volunteers shave off the matted parts of her thick fluffy coat, a grueling process that took 40 minutes and that most friendly cats wouldn't stay calm through. We now know that her subdued behavior was less because she was the best socialized cat in the world, and more because she is sweet and ... (Read More)incredibly submissive and puts up no resistance when she feels cornered. She has enjoyed being pet and brushed before but generally prefers to keep a slight distance and be admired from afar. Being such a delicate soul that takes a long time to trust and only comes out when it's quiet and peaceful, we think she would do best with a small family without noisy kids running around to overwhelm her. With other cats she generally keeps to herself and is non-confrontational but she has been known to hold her own, wrestling with her crazy little foster sister Genevieve, whom she loves dearly. Sunshine could be a good little sister to an older kitty that wants to be left alone or happily deal with a feisty kitten or anywhere in between. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Illinois
    Cats can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.

    Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!

    All domestic cats are descended from African wild cats. Cats were considered divine in ancient Egypt and are depicted in hieroglyphs and found mummified in the tombs of Pharaohs. The cats in the Broadway show, Cats, were inspired by feral cats in London made famous as T.S. Eliot's Jellicle Cats.
