DELLA…is a super nice BLACK AMERICAN CURL. She is 6 years old, spayed and has her claws and weighs around 8 pounds. She has an easy, silky, medium-length ebony coat, adorable curled back ears and bright gold eyes. Della came to us with another Curl when their breeder had to downsize her cattery and she knew we would find her cats good homes. Della is a VERY sweet girl. Loves people, adores petting, great with combing and brushing and just an all around friendly, happy cat. She is moderately active, good with other cats and adapts quickly to new situations. She likes being held and seems to be purring most of the time! We think Della would be fine in a family with respectful kids and even a gentle dog that would not chase or bark. Della can be seen at Spring Green Animal Hospital in Spring Green, Wi, which generously donates space to show our cats. DELLA CAN BE SEEN THERE ANY TIME DURING OPEN HOURS. AS WITH ALL SPCR CATS, ADOPTIONS REQUIRE AN APPROVED APPLICATION AND PREARRANGED APPOINTMENT. Adoption Fee $200.

WATCH DELLA ON YOUTUBE (and please ignore that she is called Lena in this video…technical error :) )



I went home to Minnesota!

KITTY… is a sweet CHOCOLATE POINT SIAMESE.  She is around 8 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has vulnerable blue eyes and a milk chocolate and cream coat that is very easy to maintain. She weighs around 8 pounds.  Poor Kitty came to us under strange circumstances and we soon discovered her story was sadder than what we had been told. While we were first told that someone had moved and left her with a friend who could no longer keep her, we found out several weeks later that she had actually been living in an abandoned building for several years where her owner had left her, bringing in bags of food from time to time. Kitty came to us very scared and on the heavy side due to lack of attention and poor food quality. But she has come around nicely in foster care and is now looking for a FurrEver home where this will never happen again. Kitty starts off very shy with new people and situations, but once she feels comfortable is very loving and sweet. She is quiet, not talkative, and not particularly active. She can live with another cat that will ignore her. A quiet adult home with no kids or dogs would be best. Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI



SPARKY…is a darling FLAMEPOINT RAGDOLL. He is between 1 and 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs around 9 pounds and has a medium-length silky coat in gold and white and luminous blue eyes. You have seen Sparky here before, and he was adopted into a wonderful home, but he and the resident cat did not see eye to eye so Sparky had to come back. :( His current foster mom says, “Henry is a total lover. He follows me around the room, waiting for me to pick him up or sit and give him love. He rolls on his back, ready for belly rubs. Henry is young and loves to play. He appreciates being brushed, but doesn’t need it daily. Henry has been interested in my dog, and shows no fear of her. He would be ok with cat-friendly dogs and also with easy-going, self-confident cats. Timid or shy kitties would not be appropriate as Sparky is too dominant for them. Kids willing to love and play would be a bonus for Henry. This is an awesome boy who just needs stability and love!” And did we mention he is EASY to care for with his silky coat and incredibly HANDSOME? :). DO NOT miss out on this wonderful cat! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI



Hershey a


HERSHEY… is a beautiful SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s about five-years-old, neutered and has his claws. Hershey has a sleek cream coat with deep brown points. He has a long tail and lovely blue eyes. Hershey was surrendered to a local shelter because his people were moving.  Hershey started out ok, but quickly became overwhelmed with all the sights and sounds and smells.   He has recovered and is a playful, affectionate darling. He loves interactive play with a feather toy during waking hours and a warm body to sleep next to at night. Hershey is shy around strangers but can be bribed with treats. :) He can get a little overexcited with too much attention, so older respectful children only. He gets along well with other cats but might find a dog a little overwhelming.  Look at that face, how could anyone not want to take him home!  :)  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.


DARLA is a sweet SEAL LYNX POINT MITTED RAGDOLL. She is 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs around 9 pounds. Darla’s coat is of medium length and is silky soft, requiring occasional combing. Darla’s eyes are a deep sapphire blue and do not require any extra cleaning. Darla wants nothing more than to plant her feet in a secure, quiet, patient home where she will thrive. This poor girl has been bounced around to inappropriate homes prior to rescue, and we really need to get it right this time. This needs to be her LAST move. Darla is hand shy and starts out very shy with new people and situations, but once she feels safe and comfortable, she is so very loving and sweet and she can’t get enough petting. She circles her foster mom and head bumps her from behind. She chirps and purrs and flops in her favorite cat perch. She loves to push sparkle balls around. She is a perfect user of her litter box. Her new home will need to be patient and gentle and let Darla take the time she needs to adjust. Another docile kitty friend would be great for Darla to help show her the ropes. A quiet adult home with no kids or dogs would be best. This is a beautiful kitty that will blossom in the right home and will act just like you see in her video. Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.



Christopher 2


CHRISTOPHER AND SUSIE… are a sweet bonded pair of front-paw declawed SIAMESE.  CHRISTOPHER is a six-year-old FLAME POINT SIAMESE; he’s neutered and weighs 14 pounds.  SUSIE is a four-year-old BLUE POINT SIAMESE; she’s spayed and weighs ten pounds. This gorgeous pair of cats is very sweet and loves to be loved. They lived with an elderly lady and several other cats, but found themselves homeless when their owner went into nursing care. They sleep together and are currently rooming with another Siamese foster and getting along great. They are a peaceful pair, a bit on the shy side, but once they feel safe, they love to be petted and showered with attention. This sweet duo would fit nicely into most any household. Christopher is more outgoing than Susie, but they would prefer a house on the quieter side. Older, respectful kids would be great. Adoption Fee for the pair $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.   



Ninja 2b


NINJA…  is an intense SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s about five-years-old, neutered and has his claws. Ninja was found abandoned in a home after his owner moved out.  He was terrified and reactive, hissing at anyone who came near.   Because he was abandoned, state law required that he spend 10 days in the shelter before he could come into rescue.  He was in very rough shape, stressed from the shelter, bewildered by the loss of his home and person, underweight and covered in flea bites.   His coat is still recovering, but he is slowly learning to trust humans again.  He’s listed as special needs because after all he has been through, he would need a quiet stable household with patient adults who will let him adjust at his own speed, and maybe let him sleep in their bed.  His foster mom calls him Ninja because when she sleeps in the foster room, he sneaks into the bed with the barest whisper of disturbance.  He is a very intense little boy, weighing only about 6 lbs.  He loves food and treats. He can be tempted to play with interactive toys. Experience with Siamese or similar breeds would be preferred.  He can be very dominant with other cats, although he gets on well with Hershey and might be willing to accept another easy going male cat.  A dog might be too much for him.  Would you open your heart to give him a furever loving home? :)  Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.



I went home to Dunlap, Il.!

KING CHARLES… is a stunning  SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN.  He is between 1 and 2 years old, neutered and front declawed. He weighs around 8 pounds and has a magnificent, flowing coat (his chest is full but his mid section and tail are growing out of a medium cut) and elegant blue eyes. He has a nice “doll” face that needs no care and he is good about combing and brushing. KC came to us from a shelter where he had come in as a stray. Hard to believe isn’t it? Nobody ever claimed this beauty, who had obviously been recently groomed and cared for by someone! KC is fully vet checked and in great health, is a calm, easy-going boy who is fine with other cats, and adapts quickly where ever he winds up.  This is truly one of THE MOST HANDSOME himmy boys we have had in rescue all year! He is affectionate, sweet natured and just seems to roll with whatever comes his way. He would do best in a home familiar with the grooming needs of long haired cats and dogs. Older, respectful kids would probably be fine. Adoption Fee $275. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.




FRANKIE… is a gorgeous SEAL POINT BALINESE; he is 6 years old, neutered and has his claws. Frankie is a stunning cat, weighing in at a lean 17 pounds! He was surrendered into rescue by someone who had “too many cats.” An absolutely magnificent creature with a classic seal point coat and crystal blue eyes, Frankie is as sweet as he is beautiful. He starts off a bit shy, but as soon as he warms up, Frankie is a total lover. He’s a super-sweet boy who loves people. Given proper introductions, he would likely do well with one or two other cats or a gentle dog who would ignore him. Respectful kids who would lavish him with attention would be great. What a sweetheart! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL. 




MADDIE..  is a gorgeous GREY TABBY MAINE COON. She is around 2 years old, spayed and front declawed. She weighs about 9 pounds and has a stunning, silky, medium length coat and striking greenish gold eyes. Maddie (shown here at her vet exam, where she was a very good girl) was left at the doorstep of a vet clinic in a carrier and nothing else. So we don’t know her story but we can tell that she was well cared for and loved by someone. She is a quiet, demure, somewhat shy girl who loves attention once she feels comfortable and gets along fine with other cats that will not bully or dominate her. She is good about combing and brushing and is moderately active. The best home for her would be quiet, adult and looking for a sweet, gentle companion. No dogs or small kids please. Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.




SAM… is a wonderful SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s three-years-old, neutered and has his claws. Sam wears a classic cream coat with rich brown points. And just look at those beautiful baby blues! Sam was found as a stray and turned in to a local shelter, sick and thin. He’s been in rescue for a little while now and is healthy and waiting for his furever home. A purfect gentleman with a super-sweet disposition, Sam seems to be grateful for all the care he’s received. He appreciates a warm, dry, flea-free bed and regular meals. He loves to be petted and will sleep purring, with a paw resting on his foster mom. She says he’s an old soul with wisdom in those beautiful eyes. Sam is rooming alone right now, but would likely be fine with other cats given proper introductions. Respectful kids who would pour love on him would be great. He’s a wonderful companion. Do you have room in your heart and home for this boy? Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.




FROSTY… is a WHITE MALE PERSIAN with twinkling blue eyes. He is 4 years old, neutered, has his claws and weighs about 7 pounds. While many white male Persians are deaf, Frosty is not. Frosty  was surrendered  at a local shelter by his breeder.  After spending the day at the kitty spa, Frosty’s foster mom was pleasantly surprised at how white and silky soft Frosty’s coat became! It’s gorgeous! Frosty’s eyes do weep and need daily wiping. Frosty is social, playful, sweet, and can be talkative. He always uses his litter box and likes his human company. Frosty also recently had a dental and had several teeth removed, but that didn’t even faze him. He loves his crunchy food (along with some canned) all the same.  Frosty has been around other laid-back kitties in foster care and does fine with them but they have to be laid back, NOT dominant or timid. Frosty tends to be dominant himself so another kitty would have to pretty much ignore him. He is fine with dogs and would probably be ok with respectful children as long as they do not chase him. Adoption Fee $225.   FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.




CHLOE… is a sweet and gentle SEAL POINT SIAMESE. She is 9 years old, spayed, and weighs about 9 pounds. She has her claws. Chloe is gorgeous, and has a wonderfully soft coat and deep blue eyes. Chloe was surrendered to SPCR along with a pal when his owner’s living situation changed, and she couldn’t bring them with her. Chloe had been in the same home since she was a kitten, and the move to foster care was hard on her. Over time, as Chloe became more comfortable, her kind and demure nature revealed itself. She is a really nice cat who loves pets and giving head bumps, and will happily tell you all about her day, as the video shows. She is moderately playful and really loves interactive toys, like the cat charmer wand or da bird, as well as any and all things catnip. Chloe is an easy keeper – she is great about using the scratching post and is 100% with the litter box. She does need her eyes wiped every so often. The best home for Chloe would be with people who understand her sensitive nature. She has lived with other cats, but is very submissive – another submissive cat who would leave her alone would be best for her. She has lived with dogs as well, and would be fine with a dog who left her alone. Chloe would be a great cat for a family with respectful children as well. If you’re looking for a gentle and kind companion, then do not miss out on Chloe! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL.




SNOWBALL…is a darling SEAL POINT RAGDOLL. She is 7 years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs around 8 pounds. Snowball (whose original name was Buffy when she was adopted from us at the beginning of the year), came to us from a shelter that was closing down and was then adopted to a loving home that took excellent care of her. Unfortunately the family was no longer able to care for her due to family issues and Snowball is back in rescue looking for her FurEver home. Snowball is social, sweet little girl who adapts quickly to new situations and gets along well with other pets when properly introduced. She enjoys brushing and combing and attention, though typical of most female kitties, she is not clingy and when she is done she is done. J She would do best in a home familiar with the care of long-haired cats and that is not noisy or too active. She would be fine with respectful older kids. She had a full dental cleaning this year and her bloodwork is perfect and she has many years of love to give! Snowball is currently being fostered at EAST TOWNE PET CLINIC IN MADISON, WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE TO SHOW OUR CATS. SHE CAN BE SEEN THERE NY TIME DURING OPEN HOURS. As with all SPCR cats, adoptions require an approved application and prearranged appointment. Adoption Fee $100.


LITTLE BIT…is a darling BROWN TABBY AND WHITE VAN (coloration) PERSIAN. He is a bit over 1 year old, neutered and has his claws. He has a very flat face, a cottony white and brown coat and huge gold eyes. LB is a tiny guy…LESS than 5 pounds, and looks bigger than he is due to his poofy coat. LB belonged to someone who loved and cared for him very much but due to family problems she had to give him to rescue. LB is a very loving, calm, sweet natured kitty who is used to a lot of love and doting. He is good with other cats, quiet and good about the combing and brushing he needs in abundance. He is probably an example of the highest maintenance type of Persian we get into rescue. His eyes need to be kept clean once or twice a day and his coat mats easily, so it must be combed daily or kept shaved in an easy lion cut. LB has a nose so tiny that laser surgery has been tried twice to open it up but to no avail. He does honk when he breathes but eats and drinks fine (he prefers canned food) and doesn’t engage in much exercise as a result. LB would be a wonderful companion for someone EXPERIENCED IN THE CARE OF VERY FLAT FACED PERSIANS/HIMALAYANS. He will be a sweet, gentle friend for a quiet home with no loud dogs or busy kids.  Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.


CHESTER… is an awesome SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s three-years-old, neutered and has his claws. Chester is a big boy weighing in at at 12 pounds. He wears a classic seal point coat and has brilliant baby-blue eyes. Chester is a super-nice cat with a calm, sweet disposition. He gets along great with other cats and would likely be fine with a dog who would ignore him. We don’t know much about Chester’s past: He came to us from a shelter in northern Indiana. He’s a purfect houseguest, tho with tidy litter box habits and a gentle nature. He would be a welcome addition to any household, and he would love respectful kids. Chester is slightly reserved at first, but warms up quickly. He loves to be petted and showered with attention. He’s so happy to be getting a second chance. Can this sweet boy come live with you? Adoption fee $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL



cALLIE 11-23-15

CALLIE… is a gorgeous CALICO AMERICAN BOBTAIL.  She is eight years old, spayed, weighs 6-1/2 pounds and has her claws. She has a soft medium-length coat and sports the most adorable white socks with matching bib and whiskers. Her emerald eyes are windows to her soul. Callie came into rescue in early July when her family of three years moved. She was upset at losing her home and her humans. We soon noticed she was not eating and had lost a significant amount of weight. She developed a severe case of anemia, was very weak and would not eat. Callie’s foster family ended up hand feeding her for about a month with the help of an esophageal feeding tube. But with all that care and love, sweet Callie gradually started showing improvement. Her red blood count is now completely normal and she has made a full recovery. She eats on her own and her weight has stabilized. Callie is one of the most loving cats ever. She follows her foster family around waiting for someone to sit down so she can have a warm lap. She is a purr bug who sleeps contentedly next to her foster mom every night. And although she lives peacefully with her four foster Persian “siblings,” Callie doesn’t really like other cats. Her best home would be a quiet, peaceful place with no more than one other cat who would ignore her. No dogs or toddlers, please. She is a gentle spirit who deserves a furever home where she can be happily adored.  Mature Adoption Fee $100.  FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL



mEOwgi new2

MEOWGI… is a stunning BLUE POINT SIAMESE. He’s neutered, two years old, around eight pounds and has his claws. Meowgi was surrendered by a family who loved him, but he did not get along with the resident dog or cat. Meowgi has an ultra-soft cream coat with slate points and crystal blue eyes. He’s a super friendly guy who loves people and lives to be petted. Meowgi starts out a tiny bit shy, but once he warms up, he’s a super lover! He would fit in most homes, but his past family says he picked on the other animals. So Meowgi’s best home would be as an only or with a super laid-back cat who wouldn’t be intimidated by him. Adoption fee $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.







PRINCE … is a snuggly FLAME POINT SIAMESE.  He is 1 year old, neutered and has his claws.  Prince was left at a Chicago shelter with 10 other cats when his owners moved.  Prince roomed with another cat from his former household while at the shelter.  Eventually, that cat was adopted and Prince was left all alone.  He was so traumatized by his abandonment, that when Prince came to his foster home, he would only slink around on his belly in abject sorrow.  He begs for cuddles and adores crawling in next to his foster family and snuggling close.  He is good with children and, given his past, does well with other cats.  He is a lean and muscular cat who is very playful.  ADOPTION FEE $175. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.





HERSHEY TOO…is an absolutely wonderful SEALPOINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. He is around 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs a lean 8 pounds and has a gorgeous short, easy coat in white, caramels and black and lively blue eyes. Hershey came to us as a stray from a local shelter but immediately showed his foster mom what a great kitty he is by bumping her hand and purring constantly. One look at his video below is really all anyone needs to know about this cat. He is super friendly, easy going, great with other cats, probably fine with dogs and would be a super family cat with respectful kids. He is low maintenance, both in care and in personality…all he really wants is a warm bed, quality food and people to love him. He is moderately active, not talkative and would be a perfect “first cat” for someone new to cats or to Siamese in general . Heck, we can recommend him to just about anyone because he is just THAT NICE! Come snatch this boy up before someone else does! He’s a real treasure! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.



Parker 1d

PARKER… is a handsome male SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  He is between 3-4 years old, is neutered and has his claws.  He weighs about 13 lbs. and has been dieting since he arrived at his foster home.  He came to SPCR with his two sisters (Edie and Lacey) when his owner had to move and they couldn’t go with.  Parker has adjusted well to his foster home and is very interested in meeting new people and pets.  He’s very friendly, enjoys being petted and brushed and can be count on for a good head butt if you happen to be within head-butting range!  Parker is outgoing and would do well in a home with other cats, respectful dogs and older children. He might do best in a home with a fellow cat to hang around with. Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL


AUSTINis a sweet BLUE POINT MITTED RAGDOLL. He is around 4 years old, neutered and has his claws and weighs around 9 pounds. He has a super soft, silky, medium-length coat in grays and cream and bright blue eyes.  Auston was adopted from us to a good home but his folks did not like how affectionate he was (they preferred something more aloof)  so he is back with SPCR to try to find his true FurEver Home. Austin is an extremely NICE CAT. He always seems to be purring and he absolutely adores attention and affection. He adapts quickly to new situations and people and is excellent about combing and brushing. He is fine with other cats, probably would be good with a friendly dog and would enjoy respectful older kids. Austin needs to be kept on a grain free canned food (he’s currently doing great on Wellness) to do his best. He will make someone very very happy! :) Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.



EDIE… is a beautiful female SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  She is between 3-4 years old, is spayed and has her claws.  She weighs about 9 lbs.  She came to SPCR with her two siblings (Lacey and Parker) when her owner had to move and they couldn’t go with.  Edie is a very shy girl and tends to let her siblings check things out first for her.  She enjoys looking out the window and watching the neighborhood, birds, and blowing leaves.  She needs a patient home where she can get adjusted at her own pace and have a place where she can feel safe.  When her foster family catches her at the window, she’s happy to be petted and enjoys being brushed.  Edie would do well in a quiet home, with or without other pets. Adoption Fee $175.  FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL


KARMEL…is a darling RED AND WHITE AMERICAN SHORTHAIR. She is around 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She is currently at about 5 pounds but will probably be more like 7 pounds when she regains all of her weight. She has an easy, soft silky coat in white with red banding on the back and tail, and luminous green eyes. Karmel has been in foster care a LONG time recovering from the neglect she suffered at the hands of a mentally ill hoarder/breeder. She and a number of other American Shorthairs were pulled from a filthy house where food was scarce and care was non-existent. Karmel was severely underweight and suffering from chronic diarrhea when she entered SPCR foster care and was quite the project to rehab for her foster mom! But Karmel is SOOO sweet, her foster mom didn’t mind because she knew Karmel would find just the right FurEver Home when she was better! We don’t get too many American Shorthairs into rescue and they are a nice breed (for more information please go to  and click on “breeds” then then American Shorthair). As you can see by her video below, Karmel is a very loving little girl who is as starved for attention as she was for food. She purrs pretty much all the time and is quite active, playful and just plain fun. She is fine with other cats but has never been around dogs or kids so we would say maybe an older, calm dog that would ignore her and maybe respectful older kids who would understand what she has been thru.  Karmel starts off a bit shy in new circumstances but her natural personality is self-confident so she should adapt pretty quickly. Her foster mom recommends that she be fed only Wellness canned, grain free turkey or turkey and salmon cat food at this time, though certainly someone knowledgeable with sensitive kitty stomachs who have had success with other recipes could move her carefully over to something else grain-free. She is currently pretty skinny, but is significantly better than when she came into rescue (and no more diarrhea, yay!!! :) so full bowls will do wonders! :)  A very cat-experienced household is required. Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.



Lacey 5

LACEY… is a beautiful female SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  She is between 3-4 years old, is spayed and has all her claws.  She weighs about 12 lbs. and has been dieting since she arrived at her foster home.  She came to SPCR with her two siblings (Edie and Parker) when her owner had to move and they couldn’t go with.  Lacey has adjusted pretty well to her foster home.  She’s a bit more cautious than her brother but does enjoy the company of her foster family and her siblings.  She’s curious and though sometimes hesitant, her desire to be petted and to be with people quickly overrides her shyness.  Lacey is a wonderful girl that would do well in a home with other respectful pets and older children.  She may do best in a home where she can have a fellow cat to hang around with. Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.




PARKER TOO… is a four-month-old LYNX POINT SIAMESE KITTEN. He weighs four pounds, is neutered and has his claws. He has a soft beige coat with light mocha points and China blue eyes. Parker was found literally in the middle of a country road in rural Illinois. A very nice lady saved him and got him into rescue. When he arrived, Parker had a terrible upper respiratory infection and a horrible infection in both eyes. After a few weeks of meds, eye drops, love and lysine, Parker looks and feels like a new kitten! We think Parker was outside for most (if not all) of his short life before coming into rescue. At first, he was afraid of his human caretakers, did not like to be handled and didn’t seem to know how to play. He still is not crazy about being held or confined. But boy, does this guy know how to play now! Crinkle calls, feather wands and mini mice – he loves ‘em all. He will allow his foster mom to pick him up for a quick squeeze and a kiss, but only a quick one ‘cos he’s a busy guy with so much to do! Parker would fit nicely in any home. He gets along with other cats and would love a playmate. Respectful kids would be great, but he’s more of an active kitty and not so much a cuddler. Although at the end of a busy day, this guy can be found dozing on the couch with his foster family. He’s a sweet boy who will be a joy to his new family.  Kitten Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.




FILO … is a shy SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE.  He is 1.5 years old, neutered and has his claws.  Filo has a lovely cream and mocha coat with white toes on his front paws.  He was left at a Chicago shelter by his owner due to allergies.  Filo has trouble with change and commotion due to his sensitive nature.  The noisy shelter quickly reduced him to hiding in the back of his cage.  Since coming into rescue, Filo has been making slow steps toward coming out of his traumatized shell, but will quickly run and hide if threatened.  He is good with calm children and can associate with other cats with a slow and proper introductions.  Loud, barking dogs would not be appropriate.  He is a big boy and for him it is ‘all about the bass’.  That just means there is more of him to love at night.  The perfect family for Filo would be on the quieter side and would allow him to acclimate at his own pace. ADOPTION FEE $175.  FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.




EMILY SNOW… is a petite NATURAL POINT TONKINESE. She is 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. Her coat is silky soft, and look at those stunning blue eyes! Emily Snow was rescued from a breeder who could no longer care for the multiple cats, and was immediately adopted and loved by her foster family. Unfortunately, a couple of the cats in the home have started to bully her to the point where she can no longer roam the house freely. This has stressed her so much that she would occasionally “mark” inappropriately, mostly on her siblings’ cat beds/blankets. To keep her isolated in a room stresses her even further, so she needs to go to a new home where she can truly be free to run and play. She has been checked by different vets and they’ve found her to be healthy. The vet suggested, and Emily’s mom agreed, that Emily is to be rehomed as an only, and that her “marking” would cease once she knows she’s safe. The dominant cats take advantage of her inability to hear – yes, Emily is deaf – thus the special needs. The vet suspected she had a head injury that resulted in deafness (and a slight head tilt).  Nevertheless, she is all cat and loves life! Tonks are known for their intelligence, are active and playful, and Emily is all of that. She understands simple gestures/hand signs such as “play,” “eat,” “pick you up?” and “NO.” Pom poms and sparkle balls are her favorite toys, and gets right down to tackling the bunny kickers. But of course nothing beats playing with a laser pointer! Though she is usually active, she would climb onto your lap and doze off peacefully. Emily is also vocal – loves to talk and chat about anything and everything, and sometimes can be really loud. So she would need to go to a Siamese experienced home where they would not mind her being active and vocal. Her new person(s) would also need to communicate to her using simple hand signs, since she does enjoy watching for facial expressions and gestures. Young children would not be appropriate since she can get overstimulated when playing. For Emily to go to a home as an only kitty where she would not have to worry about being bullied would be heaven. She’s truly a people cat, and needs to be just that.

This part of the website is for domestics that have come into our program because they are part of a pair (one of which was a purebred) or some other reason having to do with our admission process.  Please DO NOT ASK US TO TAKE YOUR DOMESTIC BECAUSE WE CANNOT.  We have very limited space even for purebred cats and have to keep those spaces open for them.



NIGHTCRAWLER … is a sweet BLACK DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR KITTEN.  He is three months old, neutered, has his claws and weighs three pounds.  Nightcrawler came in as a newborn with his mother and three siblings from a Chicago shelter.  His mother is a Highlander and Nightcrawler has all the loving, social nature of his mother’s breed but looks like a domestic shorthair.  Nightcrawler has been exposed to other cats and dogs and does well with them after a brief introductory period.  He has been well-handled by children and is very tolerant.  He is energetic and playful, but also adores curling up in a lap for cuddles.  He would love another young cat to play with. MIXED BREED KITTEN ADOPTION FEE $100. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.



LITTLE GIRL…is a super sweet RED DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. She is around 10 years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs around 7 pounds and has an easy, short coat and bright gold eyes. This happy go lucky mature kitty came to us with an ancient Siamese. They had lived together their whole lives and wound up in a shelter when their owner passed away. Unfortunately the Siamese (who was at least 18 years old) had severe health issues and was unable to be adopted, but Little Girl keeps ticking on and sure needs to spend her retirement years in a loving home like any of the youngsters! As you can see by her video below, LG is a SWEET kitty, very interactive and loving. She mostly enjoys watching birds from a sunny window but she would certainly be someone’s lap buddy too! LG is being fostered in a multi-cat fostering situation and gets along fine with other cats that ignore her. She can be a bit dominant, so another easy-going cat would be fine. A gentle dog and respectful kids would be ok too! She has been in foster care for at least 6 months…nobody wanted a senior kitty…but we know someone out there will! :) Mature Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.




ZIGZAG…is an adorable WHITE AND BLACK DOMESTIC MEDIUM HAIR KITTEN. He is 4 months old, neutered and has his claws. Zig is almost entirely white except for a patch of black on the very top of his head, like a small toupee…how cute is that! And of course you see he has amazing green eyes! He came in from a local shelter and has been fostered by our exceptional kitten foster person, Terese, in the Gurnee, Il area. Zig is listed as a Special Needs kitten because he was born with a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. What that means is that he is always a bit off balance compared to other kittens and can wobble a bit (see his video below). It is NOT a progressive disorder and in fact may get a bit better as he matures.  He may have CH, but NOTHING slows him down! His foster mom says, “Must say he’s a wild one… loves to play rough, always flying off things jumping around like a frog a very very busy kitten. When he’s by himself and away from his roommates I can pick him up and hold him and pet him and he shows me his sweet, affectionate side. He sleeps on top of my pillow at night and in quite the love, but he is also very much the FLYING MONKEY kitten.” Zig has been socialized with dogs and cats and would probably be a good companion kitty for another wild young guy who needs a friend. He would be way too much for calm, older cats or those that would be annoyed by a busy personality. Small kids would NOT be appropriate as he can get overstimulated and nippy (common with many kittens). Other than his being a bit off kilter, Zig is perfect with his litter box habits, gets anywhere any other cat can, and is otherwise fine. An experienced cat home would be preferred. Special Needs Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.




IRISSA…is a darling RED DOMESTIC LONGHAIRED KITTEN. She is 7 months old, 6 pounds and is spayed and has her claws. Irissa lost an eye due to an injury when she was a small kitten but it doesn’t affect her at all! In fact she seems to be happily winking at all who see her and it gives her extra character! This little kitty is SUPER outgoing and confident and adapts immediately to new people and environments. Her foster mom said she was walking about the vet clinic purring non-stop when she went in for her spay! She is great with other cats, dogs and would be a great family cat for kids. Mixed Breed Kitten Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL
