LINEN … is a LILAC POINT BALINESE, who came into SPCR’s care in early July 2016. He’s only 3 yrs old, and can’t breath! Can you imagine, always sitting on the sidelines, watching everyone else play, and never being able to join in the fun, because you just can’t catch a breath? He sounds like an old steam locomotive, because he can only get a small amount of air through his nose, and has to supplement it by also breathing through his mouth. He’s been on several antibiotics, to no avail, and it’s been determined he has nasal polyps or an obstruction, and needs surgery. As we all know, surgery costs money! We’re asking you to please help Linen, so he can breath and enjoy life! No amount is too small-every little bit helps!
UPDATE! Linen had his procedure yesterday at a specialty clinic and there are fortunately no polyps in his nose. He has a great deal of swelling going on in both sides, which makes it hard for him to breathe. He is currently being treated with different medications and anti-virals to bring down the swelling within the next week or two. In addition, the vet took tissue biopsies so we would know for sure what is going on. As you can imagine, this was very expensive, so we GREATLY APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP EVERYONE HAS EXTENDED TO SPCR! 🙂
HALLY … is a very pretty, rare TORTOISESHELL TURKISH ANGORA. She is 2 years old, spayed, and weighs about 7 lbs. She is 4-paw declawed, and is great about using her litterbox. She has a very soft, medium length, easy care coat, which is splashed with shades of gold, orange, and chocolate. So far, she has not had an easy life, but she is gentle and sweet. She has never had any personal attention, and is shy about approaching people, so her forever family will have to go to her, for petting and ear scritches. She has a beautiful, soft voice and will tell you about her day. She’ll give your hand kisses, and has a motor that can’t be beat. In her previous life, she was terrorized by dogs, so a family without dogs is a must. She loves to wile away her day in her soft cat bed, so she can easily be an only cat. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN CAMPBELLSPORT, WI.
SAMANTHA… is a beautiful SEAL POINT SIAMESE. She is around 9 years old, spayed, and has her claws. She has a beautiful cream and chocolate coat and lively blue eyes and weighs around 9 pounds. Samantha was adopted from us a number of years ago and was well cared for until her person passed away and nobody wanted her any more. Now she is back in rescue looking for her REAL FUREVER home! 🙂 Samantha is a lovely, friendly, happy kitty who is not particularly active, enjoys looking out the window at birds and is not talkative. She is affectionate and enjoys attention and would be a great kitty for an older person looking for a loving companion. She lived with another older cat for many years (that cat is already adopted) and is currently living well with several easy-going males that let her be the Queen. She would be ok with other females as long as they were not dominant and were easy going like her roommate of many years. Respectful kids would be fine. She has never lived with dogs but one that would ignore her would probably be fine. She just had a full dental cleaning and bloodwork indicating she is a VERY healthy kitty! Considering that Siamese easily live to be 20, she’s still a youngster! Come get this little girl! 🙂 Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

PIPER … is a wonderful BLUE POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. She is about 3 years old, an athletic 7 pounds, and quite chatty. She loves people and has a monster purr. She will follow us around the foster room looking for attention, and gives lovely head butts to tell us she loves us. Piper loves to play, and is intelligent and curious, so she will do best at a home where she will get plenty of attention. She came to us from a shelter where she had a litter of kittens, so what with raising and weaning her kittens under the stressful conditions at a shelter, traveling to her foster home and settling in, she is more than ready to find a forever home. She does not appreciate other cats in her area, but might be ok with a cat friendly dog, if properly introduced. Her videos shows exactly what she is like, and she will probably take no time to get settled in to her new home, and to let you know how much she appreciates that you are there to share her home. She would be a good family cat, but maybe not for very young children. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN WAUKESHA, WI.

SAMANTHA … is a SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN. She is 6 years old, spayed, current with her vaccinations, and front-paw declawed. She was a stray from the local humane society and did not like the atmosphere at the shelter. She has come a long way since then,and is now a beautiful, energetic, little girl. She is a little bit of a Diva but is starting to come around seeking attention. She holds her own with other cats and loves to run and play with the bird on a stick. She would do well with respectful children. She would do well in a home where she could be cherished and given lots of love. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN MADISON, WI.

TAPAS…is an absolutely wonderful BLUE POINT SIAMESE KITTEN. She is around 9 months old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs about 7 pounds. Tapas came to us from someone who was disabled and not up to caring for the busy nature of a rambunctious kitten…and she certainly is that! As you can see by her video below, this charming sweetheart is VERY loving, gives hugs and kisses, is always on the move and is fairly chatty. Tapas is a very typical Siamese female…smart, intense and all over everything. She wants and needs a lot of attention and adoration and will bond very closely to her people. If you are looking for an easy-going couch potato…MOVE ON. She will be where ever you are, exploring up, down and sideways! Because of this we are really going to prefer a Siamese-experienced home…folks who have had this breed (or Abyssinians/Orientals, etc.) before and are fully aware of their energetic, “monkey” personalities. Tapas loves people but really does NOT LOVE OTHER CATS. She truly believes she should be the one and only queen of her domain, even at this young age (again, not at all unusual for a bluepoint female). As a result we are looking for a no other cat home. A gentle dog would probably be fine, as would respectful kids. She is an utterly delightful little girl who has charmed her way into her foster mom’s heart very quickly and will do the same for her FurEver person as well! Kitten Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

MAGGIE … is a stunning six-year-old TORTI POINT HIMALAYAN; she isspayed and has her claws. She is a small girl weighing around six pounds. Talk about a coat of many colors! Have you ever seen anything like it? A wonderful warm mix of chocolate, caramel, latte and pumpkin! All of this and sapphire eyes. What a looker this sweet girl is. Maggie came into rescue with several other cats including Felix (also on this page). They lived in a house with many cats, and are adjusting to their new life. They aren’t bonded, but they do comfort each other in new situations, so if you’re looking for an awesome pair of cats who get along, these are the ones you’ve waited for. Maggie is shy, but once she trusts you, she’s a total doll. Her foster family is totally smitten with this gentle lamb. She’s just as sweet as they come. Maggie’s coat is on the silky side, but she will still need to be combed to stay mat free. Great news: She LOVES to be brushed! Her eyes have little to no drainage. She’s asking for a quiet, loving family who will allow her to blossom in her own time. Other gentle cats would be fine.ADOPTION FEE $150 or $200 for the pair (Maggie and Felix together). FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

FELIX … is a wonderful eight-year old WHITE TURKISH ANGORA; he is neutered and has his claws. And we have to say, he’s just about the nicest cat around. At eight years young, this boy plays like a kitten. He loves cat nip and any kind of toy he can wrestle with. Felix’s silky soft, cloud-white coat is nothing less than stunning, and you can look in those green eyes and see all the way to his soul. His foster mom thinks his sweet pink nose is about the most adorable thing she’s ever seen. Felix loves people and other cats. How perfect is that? He follows his foster family around and rubs his face on anything and everything when he’s being talked to. Felix is a majestic good-sized boy tipping the scales at about eight pounds. He’s a gentle soul, though and his eyes seem wise beyond his cat years. Felix’s coat is on the silky side and doesn’t mat easily; still he will need to be groomed regularly to stay looking and feeling his best. Felix was surrendered by someone who could no longer care for him, but before that, he lived with many cats. He would likely do fine as an only, or given proper introductions, he would likely welcome the company of other gentle fur buddies. Older, respectful kids who could give Felix love and attention would be great. He’s just a wonderful, quiet and sweet cat looking for a home to live out his golden years. Could it be with you? ADOPTION FEE $100 or $200 for the pair (Maggie and Felix together). FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

PRINCESS…is a gorgeous SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN. She is 11 years old, spayed and has her claws. She’s currently in a neat lion cut, but you can see by the photo below what a beautiful cat she is when she has her full coat. Princess came into rescue when she and her brother lost their home due to their owner’s death. Her brother was adopted out but Princess remains and is looking for her FurEver home! Princess is a quiet, demure, loving little girl who just needs a quiet home to call her own. She is not particularly active and would do really well in a home similar to the one she was used to; adult, quiet and experienced with the maintenance needs of a long-haired cat. Princess does get along with other cats that would not bully or get in her face. She is afraid of dogs and small kids would not be appropriate. She starts off shy at first but is very sweet once she feels comfortable. Princess has had a full dental cleaning and blood work indicating she is in excellent health! Mature Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

SHELLY…is a cute BLUE POINT MITTED RAGDOLL. She is around 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs around 8 pounds, has a medium-length silky coat in blues and cream, 4 little white feet and bright blue eyes. Shelly is a super sweet little girl who came in with PRINCE CHARLES (above) and 3 other cats from a home where the owner was unable to keep them any more. Shelly has been a delight to foster because she is an easy-going happy little girl who is always purring. She is moderately active, great with other cats and adapts pretty quickly to a new environment and new people. She is fine with combing and brushing and has a been a joy for her foster person to care for. The best home for Shelly would be on the quieter side because she has only known an elderly lady her whole life. She would probably be ok with older, respectful kids and perhaps a dog that would totally ignore her (she’s never been around dogs), but again she has known a quieter home. She would be great as a companion kitty for another cat and she’s just as cute as a button! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

OLIVIA … is an endearing four-year-old TORTIE POINT SIAMESE; she’s spayed and has her claws. Olivia is certainly a girl with a story to tell, though we don’t know the details. Apparently this sweetheart showed up at a farm house, pregnant and with a bad eye. After her kittens were born, the family had Olivia spayed and her bad eye removed. (She since has gone blind in the eye she has left.) The rest of the story is that the family moved away and left Olivia to fend for herself in the rural countryside. Luckily, a caring, kind-hearted neighbor stepped in and got this girl into rescue. We suspect that Olivia had some sort of accident that affected her eyes, one of her ears and caused her head to tilt to one side. Now it’s true that cherubic Olivia may not be the prettiest girl at the ball, but pretty is as pretty does – and she is one of the sweetest cats ever. Her foster mom thinks that Olivia is one of the most affectionate cats she’s fostered; Olivia effortlessly charms everyone she meets. This doll wears an easy-care coat in autumn shades of brown and rust. And her eye is a brilliant turquoise. Olivia is currently rooming with another cat in foster care, so given proper introductions, she’d likely be fine with one or two furry roommates who would ignore her. Older, respectful kids would be wonderful. She’s looking for a godmother to give her story a fairy tale ending. Are you the one? SPECIAL NEEDS ADOPTION FEE $25. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

LUNA … is a sweet, gentle 9 year old SEAL POINT BALINESE. She weighs 6 pounds, is spayed and has her claws. She just had a dental and a complete blood panel which shows that her kidneys are aging. At this time, Luna is still doing well, but she drinks a lot more water than a younger cat. She is not on medication and uses her litter box 100%. However, her kidneys will need to be monitored and she should eat a kidney-beneficial prescription food such as Hill’s K/D. Her fur is soft and easy to care for. She loves gentle caring pets, brushing and lap time. A quiet home would be her best option. SPECIAL NEEDS ADOPTION FEE $25. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
SUGAR… is a beautiful WHITE PERSIAN. He is 6 years old, neutered, and front declawed. He has a beautiful white coat and big blue eyes. Sugar came to us after his people retired and became frequent travelers. Being left alone for long week-ends and periodic weekday trips was just too stressful for him. He is looking for a stable home where he came be loved upon every day. Sugar can be a little shy at first but once he gets to know you, he loves attention. He has a thick beautiful coat that needs daily comb-thrus. His eyes are a bit runny and need to be wiped daily. He could adapt to a mellow cat that would leave him alone or to a respectful dog. Sugar would do best in an adult household. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.

LOCKHART …is a gorgeous SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He is around 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He is a very solid 8 pounds and has a very handsome chocolate and cream short coat and bright blue eyes. This wonderful kitty came to us from a shelter in Indiana where he was left as a stray. He is SOOO SUPER NICE that his foster mom wonders how on earth anyone could have possibly let him go! As you can see by his video below, this guy is very friendly, happy and loves to have his belly rubbed. He even likes to be combed! He is excellent with other cats and adapts quickly to new environments. He is a pretty calm guy and would probably be an excellent family cat with respectful kids. We don’t know how he is around dogs but he’s so chill that a cat-friendly one would probably be fine. This is one of the best male Siamese this foster home has had ALL YEAR and would be great in just about any home! Do NOT MISS OUT ON HIM!! Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

SAMMY, top, … is a 6 yr old SEAL LYNX POINT BALINESE, neutered and has his claws. TALULAH (“LOUIE”), bottom, … is a 7 yr old LILAC LYNX POINT BALINESE, spayed, and has her claws. They came to SPCR from a breeder who could no longer care for them. Sadly, Sammy and Louie spent a large portion of their life caged and had little socialization. In the last 3 months, they have learned to play and are learning to trust humans. They are comfortable with humans in their space, eat well and are quite food motivated. Both are 100% with the litterbox. Both Sammy and Louie are sweet and gentle and have never been aggressive. They have insatiable curiosity as they experience the world. The “butterfly” toy is one of the favorites. They get along with other cats well but have never been around dogs or children. Currently both are still shy about petting and will need a home patient and understanding as they continue their journey in trusting again. A cat experienced home will be preferred. ADOPTION FEE $100 for the Pair. FOSTERED IN DUBUQUE, IA.

SOPHIE … is a five-year old PERSIAN MIX. She is spayed and has her claws. A small-boned girl at seven pounds, Sophie has a beautiful easy-care brown and white ticked coat with the sweetest rose-colored nose leather and paw pads. And what about those gorgeous baby blues? We don’t know much about this adorable girl’s history except that she came to us from a shelter in Indiana, and she was very sick with an upper respiratory infection when she arrived. A round of strong antibiotics fixed her right up, though, and she’s now ready for her furever home. What can we say about this purr bug? She is simply as sweet as they come. Sophie loves to be petted and absolutely lives for tummy rubs, neck scratches and full body massages. Her Persian heritage shows in those sweet eyes, which need daily cleaning. This girl is the definition of calm, and she spends her days just quietly resting on soft blankets. She would do best in a quiet house where she could watch birds out a window between naps and where she would have an occasional lap to sleep on. She’s low-energy submissive and gets along well with other cats; she’d likely do fine with a gentle dog who would ignore her. Older, respectful kids would be fine as long as the house isn’t too noisy or rowdy. Whoever adopts this baby will be so lucky in love! Apply for her today. MIXED BREED ADOPTION FEE $100.

PRETTY … is a lovely LYNXPOINT RAGDOLL/SIAMESE MIX. She is one to 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She is a slim 7 pounds and has an easy, silky coat with gorgeous markings and bright blue eyes. Pretty came to us from our local shelter as a stray and was such a sweetheart we just couldn’t leave her there! She is very interactive, a bit talkative and likes to be combed and brushed. She is active and playful and gets along fine with other non-dominant cats (she will go head to head with other dominant ones). She would be fine with respectful kids and probably dogs that would not chase or bark at her. Pretty has as very slight neurological affect which doesn’t bother her at all but can make her slightly off balance at times like she has had one too many. She uses the box fine and has been thoroughly vet checked as a healthy cat and this has improved significantly during the time we have had her. Pretty would do well in a loving home where she can get the attention and love she so desperately needs! Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

NERMAL … is a 4 year old male BENGAL. He is neutered, front-paw declawed and has brilliant green eyes. He came to SPCR when his family couldn’t care for him any longer. He’s weighing in at a skinny 11.5 pounds and the vet says he will be very healthy at 14-15 pounds (that’s a big guy!). Nermal is very athletic and playful. He can jump to the top of the 4′ cat tree as if it was just a step. He has been a joy to foster as he is great with using the litter box and he will say “hello” when you come into the room. He loves to be petted and does a fair amount of “head-butting” to get your attention. And when he’s done playing — he’s a wonderful lap cat — content to nap with you and on you. Nermal is very friendly to new people, but has not yet adapted to his foster sibling cats or his foster family’s dog. He would do best as an ONLY PET. ADOPTION FEE $250. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

XERXES… (pronounced “zerk-sees”) is a 5-1/2 year old male F3 SAVANNAH. He is neutered, front-paw declawed and has a beautiful spotted coat and very catching grey-blue eyes. He came to SPCR when his family couldn’t care for him any longer. Xerxes is a typical Savannah (click here to see more info on the personality of the Savannah breed), that demands attention, loves to play (will even play fetch), and is a good climber. He is super smart and his previous owners said he can get into cabinets and will take your clean socks and hide them. Xerxes has been a wonderful house guest at his foster home showing no issues with litter box use or eating. He is very friendly to new people, as well as other cats. He is used to being the Alpha pet in the household, so you’ll want to take that into consideration when thinking about adopting him. Xerxes has already established himself with the other foster cats so that he eats first and plays first. Xerxes is an energetic cat that will need to be entertained and will do best in a home where he can get lots of attention and if he has “sibling” cats to play with, that’s even better. ADOPTION FEE $300. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

DANE ... is a friendly SEAL POINT RAGDOLL MIX. He is approximately 6 years old, neutered and front declawed. Dane came into rescue because his owner’s circumstances had changed, and could no longer keep him. However, he has had a very hard life as he has lost most of his teeth and came into rescue completely infested with fleas. His coat has certainly suffered and he is currently patchy from a bad reaction to the flea collar. However, the fleas are all gone, fur grows back and Dane is delightfully friendly and outgoing! He loves being pet and will enjoy regular grooming so his coat will be full and beautiful again. He is around 10 pounds, which is on the slim side for him, but good food works wonders. 🙂 Dane loves wet food and would prefer it due to his lack of teeth. We can only wonder why he has so few, but the vet opines that Dane lost them while living on the streets. Dane is looking for a home that will give him 2 squares a day and attention. Is this you? ADOPTION FEE $125. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.
SNOW … is a friendly LYNX POINT RAGDOLL MIX. She is a year and a half old, spayed and has her claws. Snow came from the same home as Dane when their owner’s circumstances changed and was forced to move. She also had fleas but is now clean and free of them and doing very well in foster care! Snow is a sweet, friendly girl who will pat you gently on the arm when she wants attention. Her foster mom finds it quite charming and rewards her with pets. Snow could go home with Dane or by herself. ADOPTION FEE $125. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.
NAI and CHAI … are delightful 4 month old SEAL POINT SIAMESE twins. They are neutered and have their claws. When they were little, the only way to tell them apart was by their tails-Chai’s was a little bit darker. Nai is the gentler soul, a lover not a fighter. He will rub against your leg, to be picked up, purr, and have a little cuddle time. Chai is a little more independent-a tumble and wrestle kind of guy. He is more of an adventurer. They both love to play with wand toys, and if you sit on the floor while playing with them, they’ll clamber to sit on your lap. Preference will be given to families willing to adopt the boys together, because their foster mom thinks they would be lost without each other, and they’re twins after all! ADOPTION FEE is $200 for one, or $375 for the pair. FOSTERED IN CAMPBELLSPORT, WI.
DOMINIC … is a six month old SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE KITTEN. He has beautiful dark brown points and four white mitted feet. He is 5.6 pounds. This little guy came from a Chicago area shelter with no history, but he is a very loving kitten. He is only moderately active, great with other cats and would probably be fine with a low key dog. Dominic sleeps in bed with his foster family. He loves to be doted on by his foster family. Like all kittens, Dominic enjoys playing with toys and but he does not need to go home with another kitten. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
GIGI … is a sweet and beautiful SILVER SHADED PERSIAN. She is 8 years old, spayed, and front paw declawed. Gigi came to SPCR when her owner died. Gigi had a senior blood panel and passed with flying colors. She does have a slight heart murmur which does not require treatment at this time. Gigi is currently sporting a cute lion cut. Her fur is cottony soft but easy because she loves to be brushed. Her eyes need to be wiped once weekly or so. Gigi loves to be pet and snuggled. She’s not particularly active but enjoys windows and treats. One couldn’t ask for a nicer girl. ADOPTION FEE $125. FOSTERED IN DUBUQUE, IA.

GARFIELD … is a 10 pound RED PERSIAN with big amber colored eyes. Garfield is a healthy, happy 4 year old male with his claws. He gets along great with fellow fosters and is equally curious and affectionate which would make him a great family pet. He does not shy away from adults or children. His eyes require occasional wiping and if his coat is grown out it will require daily brushing. He came into rescue with a severely matted fine thick coat. We had to shave him down, but now he is happy and his hair cut looks wonderful on his lion looking frame. The best home for him would be experienced with the high maintenance of this breed. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
RAMSES … is an active RED AND WHITE PERSIAN FROM EGYPT. Yes, you read correctly, this lovely, medium-coated sweet kitty came from our partner organization, The Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (www.esmaegypt.org). We take cats now and then from them as their kitties have little to no chance of every having homes in their country and they sure find wonderful ones in ours! We’ve had many Persians from Egypt over the years and they don’t have the flat faces we see in the US so he has a normal, healthy nose. Ramses is 18 months old, neutered and has his claws. He has also recently had a dental. Ramses has a beautiful cottony coat that will continue to fill in over his first winter here. He’s still getting used to being brushed so he will need a patient owner who is willing to work with him. He is a spunky, playful cat with lots of energy. He would be fine with respectful older children but does not like dogs. He is excellent with the litter box. ADOPTION FEE $250. FOSTERED IN JANESVILLE, WI.
CELESTE … is a friendly TORTI POINT BALINESE. She is 1-2 years old, spayed and has her claws. Celeste ended up Chicago Animal Care and Control after her owner died. She had a very bad case of ear mites which has permanently scarred her ear, but it just gives her a cute lop-sided look. The ear mites are gone and Celeste is just fine now. She is very friendly and outgoing and will bump her head eagerly against her foster family. She is very good with other cats and would be fine with easy-going, cat-friendly dog. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
SIMBA and LILY… are an adorable pair of Siamese. They are about a year old and have their claws. Simba is a handsome Snowshoe Lynx Point, and Lily is a Bicolor Lilac Point with a downy soft coat. This pair was surrendered to a local high kill shelter after their owner could not afford to care for them any longer, and SPCR scooped them right up! They’re doing wonderfully in foster care and are a joy to have around. Simba and Lily embody the characteristics of a Siamese – they’re engaged and energetic, and love pets and to snuggle as well. They love toys, and play well independently and with interactive toys. In their quieter moments, they love to curl up on a warm lap. Simba and Lily are extremely helpful, and are always on hand to assist with tasks like litter box scooping or picking up. They’re always willing to lend a paw!
Simba and Lily are great travelers and great at the vet. They areeasy keepers at home in terms of maintenance. Simba and Lily do not need to go home together, but they are quite fond of each other, so we’d love to place them in the same home. They get along great with other cats, and we were told they are good with kids as well – they’d be great family cats! They likely would not have an issue with a respectful dog who left them alone. If you’re looking for an adorable set of loving and active companions, then do not miss out on these two cuties! Adoption Fee $325 for the Pair. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL.
ANGEL … is a sweet BLUE POINT SIAMESE. She is 12 years old, spayed, 4 paw declawed and weighs 12 pounds. She came to us when her elderly owner passed away. She has not been around dogs or small children and doesn’t like presence of other cats. Since she came from an elderly, quiet household she would do best as only cat in adult household however She has done fine with older, respectful children. Angel is shy at first however warms up with pets, brushing and brushing. Her favorite thing to do is sit in windowsill and watch outdoor activity while being pet. She is a quiet and sweet kitty who would be a great addition to the right home. MATURE ADOPTION FEE $25. FOSTERED IN WHITEFISH BAY, WI.
JUNO … is a stunning CFA-registered CALICO MAINE COON. She is just over 2½ years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs a lanky 11 lbs and has a full rich coat and bright gold eyes. Juno is a big girl now with long legs, body and tail and she is NOT done growing. She has a fairly easy coat that requires only occasional grooming, which she tolerates for a while before she wonders off. Juno was surrounded because her people had to take in a young family member with a compromise immune system. Her people were heartbroken. Juno was obviously well loved.

SNICKERS … is a handsome SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE; he is two years-old, front-paw declawed and weighs eight pounds. Snickers’ soft, easy care coat is a wonderful smattering of brown and black on white, and he has amazing emerald eyes. Snickers came to us from a family who loved him, but their growing household with three active small boys and other animals was really too much stimulation for him. He’s settled into his quiet rescue accommodations nicely and loves his foster mom and dad to pet and play with him. He rubs against their legs when they come visit, and Snickers spends much of his day atop the cat tree, contentedly looking out at the birds and squirrels. Snickers is asking for a quiet adult home where he can be relaxed and seek attention at his own pace. Small children are just too much for him. During his time in rescue, Snickers has roomed with several other cats and gotten along just fine, so he’d do well with one or two other cats who wouldn’t dominate him. He’s just a really nice cat with a lot of love to offer on his own time. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

LEAH … is a darling SEAL POINT SIAMESE; she is 10 years old, spayed and has her claws. Leah wears a classic seal point coat in dark mocha and ebony, and she views the world through beautiful baby blues. A small-framed girl, she’s a bit cherubic at 11 pounds, but charmingly so. Leah came to us from a home where she was well loved, but picked on by other household animals and stressing her to the point where she chewed the fur on her front legs. Not to worry; it’s growing back now! The most important thing you can know about Leah is that she’s as sweet as spun sugar. She simply loves people and life. Whether is a good tummy rub or a kiss and a head-butt, Leah is all in. Leah is rooming with another gentle cat and they get along very well, giving each other head bumps and tail wraps. So, she’d do fine with another sweet cat who wouldn’t bully her. But she’d prefer a quiet household where she can live out her golden years being adored. What a very nice cat! Perfect for a single person or couple wanting a loving animal companion. MATURE ADOPTION FEE $50. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE:
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.
LUCILLE…is a vivacious BLUE AND WHITE DOMESTIC MEDIUM HAIR. She is around 1 year old, spayed and has her claws and weighs between 7 and 8 pounds. She has an easy, silky medium length coat in dark gray and white, darling gray nose and bright light gold eyes. Lucille came to our attention sitting in a tiny floor cage of a local shelter with a cone on her head due to the itchiness and pain of a major skin infection that had left her 80% naked. It probably started with a flea bite allergy and had grown from there. The SPCR volunteer, there to pick up another cat, could not leave Lucille and whisked her home for some proper meds and antibiotics. Within 24 hours her skin looked 100% better and she healed very rapidly and now has a full coat of healthy, beautiful fur! Lucille now needs to GO HOME in the worst way! As you can see by her video below she is a very active, loving, social girl who likes attention and play time and has a strong personality. She is good with other cats as long as they are easy-going and will let her be The Boss. She is a bit chatty and seems to be purring all the time. The best home for her would be cat-experienced and familiar with the personalities of female cats :). She would probably be fine with respectful older kids, though she can be overstimulated and might be nippy with little ones. She would certainly put a dog in its place! 🙂 She really needs a happy ending after all she has been through! Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

EMMA…is a darling TORTOISESHELL DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR KITTEN. She is 10 months old, spayed and has her claws. She has a very short coat in grays tinged with peach and bright green eyes. This wonderful little kitty has had a difficult life for it being so short yet she holds on with a great personality and will certainly make someone’s home a lot happier! She was born with a birth defect that makes on of her back legs swing when she walks. It doesn’t hurt her in any way and she has been carefully checked by a vet who said it should not be any problem in the future. She uses her litter box 100%, plays like any other kitten and is excellent with other cats and dogs. Her foster mom says she gets around great and can even run at a good pace! She does not climb on furniture and counters and only spends her time on kitty beds or cat trees. What a well-behaved girl! Emma spent her early months in a home where there was domestic violence and abuse so she has had a really rough time. She was very fortunate to be able to find herself in the loving home of her current foster mom, where she is very affectionate and sweet despite her past. Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

She is good with calm cats once she knows them and easy-going dogs. She is great at entertaining herself. She spents a lot of time playing with and chasing balls. She will even walk around carrying them in her mouth. If she goes to a home with more than one floor, she will need carpeted stairs, but otherwise she gets around very well. Beyoncé never jumps on tables or counters. Beyoncé does not need to go home with Mary Jane, but they get along very well. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

ROGER … is a friendly, social RED AND WHITE DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is neutered and just under a year old with all his claws. We don’t know much about his history other than he came to an SPCR vet with a broken leg and no home. The SPCR vet donated her services to repair his leg and he’s been recuperating at an SPCR foster home. This guy is easy-going, loving, playful and has recovered perfectly from his broken leg. He gets along great with his other siblings and his foster family’s dog. Roger loves to play with cat toys, wrestle with his foster siblings, chase a laser pointer and talk. He has been the perfect house guest by using his litter box, purring as soon as you start talking to him and cuddling with his foster family. Roger would do well in a family that’s ready for someone who is still a kitten and wants to play. He would be enjoy a house with other pets or children, but would be fine in a quieter house, so long as there are people or toys to play with. ADOPTION FEE $75. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

NOODLES … is a BLUE AND WHITE BICOLOR DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is 1 year old, neutered and has his claws. Noodles came to SPCR from a Wisconsin humane society because he has deformed back legs. One of his legs is on backwards. The remaining back leg was partially amputated after Noodles jumped out of a tree and broke it. However, this does not affect his sweetness. He is a cuddly lap cat who is excellent with other cats and calm dogs. A large, active dog would be too much for Noodles due to his mobility issues. He cannot move fast enough to get out of the way. Noodles never goes on counters or tables and is looking for a forever home where he can live on a single level. He prefers a small space as he needs to be near the litter box. He cannot travel far to the litter box, but will always use it if he can reach it. Noodles also enjoys talking to his people, especially when he is happy and excited. If you are willing to open your heart to a sweet, wonderful boy consider this special guy. SPECIAL NEEDS ADOPTION FEE $25. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
