I HAVE A NEW VIDEO!

SPECIAL NEEDS

BESSIE…is a cute little WHITE PERSIAN.  She is around 6 years old, spayed and has her claws. Her medium-care coat is currently growing out of a neat lion cut and she has a squishy little face and bright gold eyes (and how about the cute little tongue tip sticking out? :)  She is a little girl at a bit over 6 pounds. Bessie was left at a shelter in Kentucky when she was diagnosed with extremely painful bladder stones that needed to be removed and her owners would not do it.  The shelter reached out to us and our transport angels got into motion and Bessie made the long trip up to northern Illinois and into surgery right away! She healed very well and is no longer in pain…in fact she is very playful and happy and loves bouncing around with wand toys! Bessie is listed as Special Needs because she needs to be on prescription S/O food (found at any vet clinic and the same price as any premium cat food) to make sure that she will be healthy for the rest of her life. She is affectionate and friendly and gets along fine with other calm pets. She would be ok with respectful older children. Bessie does have a flat face that needs to be kept clean regularly, so a home familiar with the maintenance needs of Persians will be preferred. She likes to be with and around her people…and she’s so cute you will want her around you all the time anyway! :) Special Needs Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

Marshmallow and Peanut (2)

Marshmallow 4 (2)

Peanut3 (2)

APPLICATION PENDING

MARSHMALLOW and PEANUT… are a 6 year old “brother and sister” pair. They were born 1 day apart from 2 different litters, but have lived together since they were young kittens. They came into rescue when their owner developed health issues and could no longer care for them. Both have their claws and are fixed. MARSHMALLOW is a darling doll face WHITE PERSIAN. She is currently sporting a lion cut, but hair grows back! Her coat is full, dense, and quite lovely. She is a petite girl of only about 6 pounds. PEANUT is a hunky FLAME POINT RAGDOLL. He has a soft, silky coat that is medium in length, and he weighs just shy of 8 pounds.  They both just had a dental.

Marshmallow and Peanut are a pure delight! They both love to play with the Cat Charmer wand and LOVE any and all things catnip. Both are very affectionate and relish attention. Marshmallow loves to curl up on a warm lap, and Peanut purrs nonstop from the moment anyone walks into the room. They are very sweet together and take turns grooming each other. Both are 100% with the litter box and use the scratching post without issue. They lived with a small, respectful dog, and would likely be fine with the same. Both are passive and would likely do fine with another kitty who would leave them alone. They also seem like they would be great with respectful children. The best home for Marshmallow and Peanut would be with people familiar with the Persian breed, as Marshmallow requires regular brushing and needs her eyes wiped occasionally. This pair is very loving and will bring joy to their new home for many years to come!  Adoption Fee for the pair $300. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL.

Callie (2)

CALLIE… is an adorable 8-year old AMERICAN BOBTAIL. She is spayed, weighs 8 pounds and has her claws. Callie came to us because her family moved and she couldn’t go. She is a super sweet girl who loves to be petted! And what a looker beautiful Callie is. She wears a stunning coat comprised of black, gold, orange and white swirls, accented by brilliant white whiskers and the most amazing green eyes on the planet! Callie was sad when she first arrived at Wolf Crossing, because she missed her home and family of the past five years, but she has slowly warmed up to her new foster home and family, and she is even enjoying her tiny little Siamese kitten roommate! Callie is a sweet social girl who loves people and would likely do fine with one or two other felines given proper introductions. Callie lived with a six year old child in the past, so respectful children would be fine. Callie is a special girl looking for a special family. She’s a doll! Adoption fee $100. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

Gus (2)

APPLICATION PENDING

GUS… is a super-nice SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s neutered, one-year old and has his claws. Gus has a thick, rich cafe au lait coat with dark coffee points and brilliant blue eyes. He made his way into rescue with the help of a caring soul who saw him listed in an online thrift sale and feared for his safety. But Gus is safe now; this nice boy has been neutered and vetted and has a full belly every day. He’s very appreciative, still, he would really love a family to call his own. Gus would fit in most any household. Given proper introductions, his foster mom thinks Gus would do fine with other cats or even gentle dogs who wouldn’t bark or chase him. He loves attention and adores being petted, so respectful kids would be great. He will make some family a fabulous pet. Adoption fee $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

LORETTA…is a darling BLUE PERSIAN. She is around 6 years old, spayed and front declawed. She has a cottony gray coat that is currently shaved into a fetching lion cut, and a nice easy “doll” face with bright gold eyes. She weighs around 7 pounds. Loretta came into rescue with 2 other Himalayans from a bad hoarding situation. The owner was not hoarding cats…there were only three…she was hoarding stuffed animals, and had many thousands of them stacked floor to ceiling filling a 3 bedroom house. So these poor neglected little girls tried to do the best they could under difficult circumstances until extended family was able to get into the home and remove them for rescue. When Loretta came into rescue she was a solid ball of filthy mats. She hadn’t seen a vet since she was a kitten and had a mouth full of infected teeth. Of course she was immediately shaved, vetted and had a dental and now this happy little girl is looking for a HEALTHY home to call her own! Loretta is very social and loves attention (as you can see by her video below). She is great with other cats (when introduced properly) and would probably be fine with older respectful kids. Her new family should be Persian/Himmie experienced as her coat must be kept in either a short cut or combed daily so she won’t wind up like she did before. Her foster mom just adores her and things anyone who gets her will be very lucky! :) Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

Kona4 (3)

Kona3 (2)

KONA… is a lovable TORTI POINT SIAMESE. She is only a year old with soft blue eyes, is spayed and has her claws. Kona came in from an animal control shelter and it appeared she had already become a mother. She was in fairly good health except for an URI which she quickly got over.  She was also a little underweight but has been a good eater and is now a healthy 7 lbs. She gets along great with people, even in meeting new people. Kona craves human interaction and would demand to be pet. She enjoys being held and carried around, and will sit on your lap once she gets done exploring. Kona is rather talkative and lets you know when she wants something. She likes toys and is playful, but fairly laid back. Kona gets along fine with cat-friendly dogs. She is too dominant towards submissive cats, but seems to have respect for the alphas, so Kona might do ok with cats that wouldn’t let her push them around.   She will make a great companion for an individual, a couple or a family with older respectful kids! Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

EDGAR and GOLDIE… are 10 year old PUREBRED WHITE AMERICAN SHORTHAIRS. They came into rescue as an owner/breeder surrender.

Edgar

EDGAR is a beautiful retired show cat with stunning eyes.  He is neutered and has his claws. He’s about 13 pounds with a beautiful, soft, pure white coat.  He is shy at first but is very friendly and playful once he gets to know his surroundings and humans.  He taps his foster’s arm when he wants pets and attention and plops on the floor for tummy rubs. 

Goldie

GOLDIE, also a retired show cat, is a smaller version of Edgar with huge golden eyes and a pure white coat.  She is very shy but eventually comes out of her hiding spots for some tummy rubs and play time.  She has her claws and is spayed. Goldie and Edgar have been together since they were born in 2005 so I think keeping them together is important, and it’s so cute when they snuggle together.   They would do great together in a quiet home with mild mannered cats and with respectful older children.

For more info on AMERICAN SHORTHAIRS, go to www.cfa.org. Edgar and Goldie are fully vetted and very healthy. These are great cats! Mature Adoption Fee for the pair $100. FOSTERED IN ROCKFORD, IL


 

frenchlace (2)

frenchlace3-7-22-15 (2)

FRENCH LACE… is a stunning SHADED SILVER TORTI RAGAMUFFIN.  She is spayed, has her claws, weighs about 8 pounds and just had a dental. Frenchie is a former breeding queen from a well known (now defunct) ragdoll and ragamuffin cattery. (Ragamuffins are basically ragdolls but with different coat and eye colors.)  It’s easy to see why this girl was a champion show cat and was a mommy to many, many kittens.  Her colors are outstanding–silver, cream, peach, white and charcoal layered over her white mittens.  She has muted green eyes that add to her beauty.  French Lace is 9 years old and having spent a good deal of her life in a cage and the last few months of her life locked away in a basement, is quite shy.  Her adjustment with her foster mom has been simply a matter of time.  She is sweet and gentle.  She gets along well with cats who won’t bully her.  (She is intimidated by cats with large-and-in-charge personalities and has been bullied by them.)  When she feels comfortable, she is quick to flop over for petting, loves to bump and rub her foster mom from behind and is good with grooming.  She is not very comfortable being picked up and snuggled but really enjoys being close.  When she knows her foster mom is home but not with her, she will call out for company.  Frenchie must have a quiet adult home without children.  An easy going cat would be fine.  A dog that would ignore her would likely be okay too.  She would also be great as a single pet. She is simply a joy to watch grow and come out of her shell.  For the patient person with a quiet home, she is a fine, fine treasure. Ragamuffins are rare for rescue.  Don’t pass her by!  Mature Adoption Fee $100.  FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.


 

Sheera (2)

APPLICATION PENDING

 

SHEERA…is an adorable WHITE PERSIAN.  She is about 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She is currently growing out of a neat lion cut.  She is a small girl at just over 6 pounds. Sheera was originally purchased off of craigslist from a backyard breeder by someone who wanted her sisters but not her.  The buyer in turn sold her to someone else.   When Sheera first got into rescue she was scared and not sure if humans were trustworthy.  She has come a long way since then.  She can be bribed into allowing eye cleaning and gentle combing.  She actively solicits attention and even enjoys lap time.  And play, she really likes play time!  Sheera has a medium care coat and a flat face that will need to be kept clean regularly.  She is looking for a stable home where she can get to know and love her people.  She would be okay with older respectful children willing to wield a feather toy.  She has lived with other cats and will do okay with calm mellow kitties who won’t try to push her around.  She could tolerate a respectful dog who’d leave her alone.  Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.

WHAT A LOOKER! :)

GLORY…is a stunning SHOW QUALITY CHOCOLATE POINT SIAMESE.  She is 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has the narrow, elegant face and body of the “wedge-head” type of Siamese along with the beautiful markings and deep blue eyes. Glory is a retired breeding female from a cattery that no longer could keep her. Like most Siamese of this type she is sensitive, bonds closely to her people and needs to be loved. :) Her foster mom reports that she is fine with other cats  and kittens as long as they don’t dominate or try to play rough with her. She is low-key, not particularly talkative and is learning what it’s like to be in a normal “pet” home (rather than being  a breeder). She would be fine as a single cat if someone out there is looking for a “onesy”. Glory would do best in a quiet, adult, Siamese experienced home. No kids or dogs please as she is not used to either. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.  


CAMI…is a darling SILVER SHADED PERSIAN. She is around 5 years old, spayed and 4 paw declawed. She weighs between 7 and 8 pounds and has a very poofy silver and white coat and bright greenish gold eyes.  Cami came from a home that could not longer care for a pet. She has been well cared for and, surprisingly, her big coat is mat-free and she enjoys being combed! :) As you can see by her video below, Cami is a friendly, happy little girl who purrs easily and loves attention. Once she gets used to a new situation and is properly introduced she is fine with other cats. Cami is moderately active and quiet, like most Persians.  She loves to play with toys and just as cute as a button! The best home for Cami would be one experienced with the coat care of a densely long-haired cat or dog. She MUST be combed out several times a week and her eyes should be cleaned about once a week. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

arya (2)

APPLICATION PENDING

ARYA… is a sweet, petite SEAL POINT SIAMESE. She is around 10 years old, spayed, has her claws, and weighs a tiny 5 pounds. Arya is just as cute as a button! She has a tiny, short, dark chocolate face with a beautiful lush mocha coat. Even her tail is short and petite. Arya came from a shelter in Western Wisconsin with no history, but she received great care there and she is in great shape. She recently had a dental and blood work and is all ready for your home! Arya has the most gentle soul! Her demeanor is so charming and quiet! She does not demand anything, but appreciates everything. She does not care to be held. She is a very calm girl that will casually waltz around to the people in her room and give them a gentle head bump or rub on their leg for pets. You have to listen carefully, but she is purring. Her hearing may not be the best as it once was, but hey, it happens to the best of us! We suspect Arya may have come from a quiet home setting, so one similar would be ideal… adult, low key, older respectful kids (12+) would be ok, as would another calm, older kitty that would not bully or push her as she is too docile to push back. Arya seemed very comfortable entering her foster room, so we expect her to readjust in your home just fine! She will probably make a nice gentle companion to a lucky family who will appreciate her calmness and age! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.

She loves being petted and is very sensitive, very sweet and very affectionate. She also adores chin scratches, and will do just about anything for more of them. Lola is good with other cats, but would prefer non dominant cats as companions. She is shy at first, but as soon as she feels comfortable, she comes running when you walk into the room.  She would prefer a quiet home with no noisy dogs or busy kids.  Adoption Fee $200.

LunA

LUNA… is an adorable EXOTIC SHORTHAIR.  She is around 8 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has bright gold eyes and a beautiful coat in shades of black, brown and gray. She is a medium sized kitty at a bit over 8 pounds. She has a super-cute flat face, but her nose isn’t extremely smushed so she is able to breath without any trouble. Luna was listed for free on Craigslist because she was being beat up by some other cats in her old home. She is a friendly, quiet cat who would do best in a quiet home. She likes to observe the world from a perch on a cat condo, and can be tempted down with some toys or the promise of brushing. She will probably be a very sweet kitty when she is all settled and comfortable in her forever home. She is well-mannered and a very easy keeper! She does fine with other cats in the foster room, but she should not be in a home with dominant cats in the future since she was previously picked on by cats. Older, quiet kids would be okay. Dogs will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We don’t see many exotic shorthairs, so please apply for this beauty now if you’re interested!  Mature Adoption Fee $80.

MIA… is a gorgeous TORTI-POINT HIMALAYAN. She is around 7 years old, spayed, and has her claws.  Mia originally came to SPCR as an owner-surrender after a family member developed allergies. Having spent nearly her entire life in one home, Mia was initially not very happy in rescue and was understandably a bit shy at first. Since that point, Mia has warmed up in her foster home and now seeks out chin scratches and belly rubs. She is an independent gal, and likes to receive attention on her own terms. She is quite playful and LOVES catnip, as well as playing with the cat charmer. Mia has a dense coat that will likely require regular trips to the groomer, as she does not relish brushing and does mat fairly easily. She is currently sporting a lion cut, which is growing out; her full coat is beautiful and can be seen in one of her pictures. Otherwise, she is a pretty easy keeper, needing only her eyes cleaned every few days. Mia recently had a dental and full bloodwork done, which indicated she is in perfect health. Mia would do best in an adult-only, cat-experienced home, as she can be a bit of a diva and needs someone capable of reading her signals and earning her trust. She has lived with other cats, but seems to prefer being alone, so a house with no other pets would be best. Don’t miss out on this beauty! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL

ISABELLA… is a sweet WHITE PERSIAN. She is around 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has beautiful blue eyes and a white coat that is shaved into a lion’s cut. She is a BIG girl and could probably stand to lose a couple pounds… but for now it just means that there’s more of her to love! Isabella was left in a shelter in Indiana for unknown reasons. She was bit shy for the first couple of days that she was in foster care, but after she felt safe she really turned on the charm! This girl loves head-scratches, pets, treats, and a little bit of playtime. She is a gentle giant and is very easy to handle. She gets along fine with the other cats in the foster room. We don’t know if she’s ever been around a dog, but a dog that would ignore her would probably be okay. Respectful kids would be fine. We are looking for a Persian-experienced home for this beauty because her coat is VERY cottony and will either need to be kept in a lion’s cut or groomed/stripped daily. She has a lovely doll face with virtually no eye drainage/staining. Please consider opening your home to the gorgeous gal! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

murphy

SPECIAL NEEDS

MURPHY… is a gorgeous six-year-old TICA REGISTERED BLUE POINT RAGDOLL. He is neutered, weighs around 15 pounds and is four-paw declawed. Murphy wears a gorgeous cream coat with soft slate points and sparkling sky blue eyes. This amazing boy was given over to rescue because his family of five years could no longer care for him. When Murphy first arrived in rescue, he was distraught about leaving the only home he had, and was pretty anti-social for the first few weeks. But as he came to know and trust his foster family, he grew into the incredible sweet boy you see in the video. Murphy is listed as special needs because his prior owner reported a history of urinary tract infections, so he needs to be kept on a special diet. His food is readily available at the vet or online and is about the same price as any premium brand food. Since he’s been in rescue (about three months), Murphy has had no signs of urinary tract issues and he has 100% perfect litter box habits. He’s not a lap cat (yet), but he follows his family around weaving and bobbing, rubbing and leaning on their legs, hoping to be petted. Murphy is Mayor of the multi-cat foster room where he lives right now. He simply loves the other cats and they love him!  Like many sensitive cats, Murphy loves to be petted, but can be cranky if he gets over stimulated. For this reason, Murphy is not suitable for a home with small children who may not be able to read his “I’m done!” signals. He will need regular coat maintenance, which he’s good with in measured doses. Murphy would LOVE a home with other gentle cats, given proper, slow introductions. (In fact, he loves Ellie, also listed on this site. They would make an awesome couple if you’re looking to add two beautiful blue-eyed cats to your family.) A dog who would ignore him would likely be fine. Murphy comes with his pedigree papers, which he already has packed in his suitcase! Special Needs Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

Ellie

ELLIE… is a gentle one-year old CREAM TORTI POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. She weighs eight pounds, is spayed and has her claws. This sweet girl has cornflower eyes and a classic cream torti face that could have been painted by Picasso himself! About three months ago, Ellie and her four kittens made their way into rescue via an Indiana shelter when the babies were just a few days old. She did a great job raising her family, and now it’s time for Ellie to find a furever home of her own. She’s a very gentle girl who loves to be petted and will do best in a quiet home. Toddlers or dogs who might chase Ellie would be too much for her. But, respectful kids who would give her love and attention would be great. Ellie gets along great with other cats and is especially attached to her roommate, Murphy, the blue point Ragdoll. (Murphy makes a cameo appearance in Ellie’s video!) She’s ready to go home and live happily ever after. Adoption fee $175. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

FREDDYis a sweet CREAM PERSIAN. He is around 4 years old,  neutered, has his claws, and weighs about 7 pounds. He has  a lovely, easy-care “doll” face, medium care peachy cream coat and huge gold eyes. Freddy came from a home where he was very loved but his folks had severe health issues that kept them from being able to care for him any more. His coat was pretty matted so we had to shave him down so he would be comfortable. Yes, he may look a bit funny right now, but FUR GROWS! :) Freddy has taken the loss of his home pretty hard but we are confident he will be happy again. He is fundamentally and gentle, quiet, somewhat shy cat, but as you view his video below remember that he is quietly purring throughout and really enjoys being pet and combed. The best home for Freddy would be similar to the one he grew up in…adult, low key and with no small kids or dogs to rock his world. He would be fine with other calm kitties that would not bully or push him as he is easily intimidated. He will probably be a great cuddly buddy for a someone familiar with the coat requirements of long-haired cats or dogs once he settles in and feels at home. Adoption Fee $200.

Her coat is nice and soft and fades to black towards her tail and legs.  Skylar has some arthritis in her hips that occasionally slows her down but she still loves to play with her Da-Bird toy and is able to jump up onto chairs easily. She is doing well on a low dose anti-inflammatory as needed (just like any of us older adults! :). Sklyar is also not afraid to let her inner Siamese out and loves to chatter, especially while you are getting her food ready. She loves people, being brushed, sitting in laps, and tummy rubs but can be sensitive to stress.

Tobynew (2)

TOBY… is an 8 year old LILAC POINT SIAMESE, neutered and has his claws.  Toby unfortunately lost his owner when she passed away.  He stayed in the apartment alone for 2 months.  As things were packed up and moved out, Toby became stressed.  When he came into the foster home he was so frazzled and couldn’t take any more.  He was used to being king of his castle and slowly that all crumbled.  When he stopped eating he was taken to the vet, and found to have an ear infection and a horrible mouth of teeth, but could only attribute the lack of appetite to a broken heart.  Nevertheless, the foster family got him back on track, had Toby’s dental completed, and gave lots of time, patience, and love.  Toby now has really come around to being very loving and outgoing!  He rubs on his foster person and enjoys any amount of affection he can get.  He’d roll over on his back because he especially loves belly rubs!  The purring has returned and his eating is completely back to normal.  When Toby is picked up, he’d melt into your arms.  A dog and young children would be too much for him.  If he had a feline companion, he could adapt – he is currently rooming with another kitty and gets along fine.  Toby still has a mindset of royalty, he seems to think he needs servants to pamper him.  Would you be the one?  :D  Mature Adoption Fee $80.

RAPHAEL and SERAFINA… are a bonded pair of SILVER PERSIANS.  They have the same father but different mothers and were born within 2 days of each other.  They have been together since they were 8 weeks old.  They are currently shaved in lion cuts because their coats were so uneven when they came into rescue.  RAPHAEL is 6 yrs old, neutered, front paw declawed, weighs 12 lbs and has large expressive green eyes.  SERAFINA is 6 yrs old, spayed, front paw declawed, weighs 6 lbs and has the same large green eyes.  They came from a home where they were very much loved by their “mom” but due to family conflicts were surrendered.  They are both VERY shy and whoever adopts them needs to understand that they will need time to adjust and come out of their shell.  After a few weeks of quiet time with their foster mom, Raphie now sits next to her purring and enjoying pets while his sister Fina loves to snuggle on Foster mom’s lap.  They also enjoy laying in the sun watching birds from the window.  Raphie and Fina would do best in a quiet home with no dogs or other cats.  Older children would be OK.  Adoption Fee $300 for the pair.  FOSTERED IN PEWAUKEE, WI.


 

Dusty

DUSTY… is a sweet 2-year old SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He weighs about 9 pounds, is neutered and has his claws. He has a classic seal point coat with dark mocha points and amazing sky blue eyes. What an awesome, friendly boy he is! Dusty was surrendered to a shelter in rural central Illinois. We think that his owner passed away, so we don’t know much about Dusty’s previous life other than we think he lived with other cats. We do know, however, that Dusty is very happy to be in rescue. When his foster family stops by his ‘room’ for a visit, he is overjoyed to have company! He rolls around on the floor asking for belly rubs. One of Dusty’s ears has been tipped, but we don’t know why. We think that with proper introductions, Dusty would be fine with other cats. He would likely be fine with a gentle dog who would ignore him, and respectful kids would be great. He’s such a sweet young cat with years and years of love to give.

His points are a creamy gray with slightly darker stripes.  He has bright blue eyes and white mittens on all four feet.  Mochi was brought in to a local shelter by someone who supposedly found him.  He was terrified and overwhelmed by the shelter environment.  In foster, he started out scared, but once he warms up, he is very friendly and vocal.  He loves to be pet and to play.  He begs for attention and thoroughly enjoys interactive play.   He is nervous around other cats and would do best as an only kitty in a stable household.  The best home for him would be quiet, adult and cat experienced. Dogs and kids would be too much for him.  He would be a faithful loving companion for anyone willing to give him time to settle in.  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI

APPLICATION PENDING

ANDERSON… is an energetic 4 month old BLUE LYNX POINT SIAMESE MIX KITTEN with stunning eyes. He is neutered, has his claws, and is just a friendly kitten who gets along with cats, dogs and people! Anderson has a great affection for the foster family’s 55 lb. hound dog. He wants to make friends with everyone he meets and is always looking for a playmate. Anderson immediately purrs when picked up, and may grow into a lap cat when he’s older and slows down a little, but right now he’s a very athletic little guy who likes to explore. He would be a great addition to just about any family! Mixed Breed Kitten Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL

Cheerios lookin up (2)

Cheerios flatout2

 

ADOPTED!

CHEERIOS… is an adorable VAN CALICO PERSIAN. She is around 8 years old, spayed and has her claws. She’s just a tiny chunk around 6 pounds, with a gorgeous silky soft white coat splashed with tan and black. What a cutie she is! Cheerios landed in animal control when her elderly owner passed away, and lucky for her, SPCR was there to whisk her away into the safe hands of foster care. After getting over her brief trauma at animal control, Cheerios seems to take everything in stride. She has a beautiful cheerful and friendly attitude and has absolutely no problems with other gentle, friendly cats. She’s so easy-going that she would not be able to stand up to a bully cat, so no bullies allowed with Cheerios. She’s a quiet girl that enjoys a sunny window, petting, and even some lap time. Cheerios just had a dental and full blood work done, which indicated she is in perfect health. She’s just a total joy to have around. She would be fine with other calm kitties that would not bully her or a gentle dog that would ignore her. Older (10+) respectful kids would probably be ok as well. Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.


 

Naomi 1 (2)

NAOMI…(Oh-Me for short) is an adorable DILUTE CALICO EXOTIC SHORTHAIR. She is about 5 years old, spayed, has her claws, and weighs about 7 pounds. Naomi was very much loved and well taken care of by her owner; however, she was surrendered only due to a family member with severe allergies. She likes to be held and will start purring the minute you pick her up. She also likes to be petted and scratched, even on her belly. She enjoys being combed although her coat is easy to care for. She loves to sleep in bed with you at night, and to be with you watching whatever you are doing during the day. She is very well-behaved, quiet, and uses her litter box 100%. She has lived with 2 small dogs, but not other cats, and has been around respectful children. This sweet girl has been micro-chipped, is up-to-date on all her shots, and has had a recent dental. She is ready and waiting for her new home. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN MUKWONAGO, WI.


 

brandy (2)

BRANDY… is a gorgeous seven-year-old SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN. She’s spayed and has her claws. A petite girl at six pounds, Brandy was found as a stray and turned in to a shelter in Iowa.  Her gorgeous coat is a blend of rich dark chocolate and mocha with ebony points and she has blue-green eyes. She’s currently in a too cute lion cut. Brandy is a sweet, friendly girl who loves to be petted and sit on laps. She would prefer a quiet, adult household and would likely do fine with one or two other cats given proper introductions. Toddlers or dogs who might chase her would be too much for gentle Brandy. She has an easy-care doll face, but her coat will need regular maintenance or she will need to be kept in a short cut. Her bags are packed and she’s ready to go home. Please see video to get a better view of Brandy!  :)  Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

Lucy2

LUCY… is a wonderful one-year old FLAME POINT HIMALAYAN. She weighs seven pounds, is spayed and has her claws. This sweet girl wears a super bunny-soft, brilliant white coat with subtle orange cream sickle points and cool crystal blue eyes. We don’t know much about Lucy’s past; she was an owner-surrender dropped off at an Indiana shelter with her sister cat. She’s a very sweet gentle girl who’s a bit on the shy side. But she warms up quickly and purrs happily in exchange for neck rubs and chin scratches. Lucy would prefer a quiet home with no loud noises or things that might frighten her. She would very likely do fine with other gentle cats given proper introductions. Her silky coat is not as prone to matting as some, but she will still need semi-regular maintenance to keep her comfortable and looking her princess best. Her eyes need cleaning every couple of days. Because she’s relatively low-maintenance as Himalayans go, Lucy would be a great fur baby for someone new to the breed. She’s a doll with lots of love to give. Adoption fee $200.  FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.


 

Fanny

APPLICATION PENDING

FANNY… is a sweet RED PERSIAN. She is 8-years-old, spayed and front-paw declawed. She’s a small girl, around 6 pounds, with a beautiful burnt orange coat and huge green-gold eyes. Fanny is an SPCR alumni who was adopted into a loving home awhile back. She adores people, and initially got along well in the house, but when her owners moved to a smaller place, Fanny and the resident cat did not see eye-to-eye. For this reason, we recommend that she be an only cat or join a household with only one other easy-going feline who would ignore her. Proper introductions are always essential to building a long-term positive relationship between cats, but it will be especially important with Fanny. Older, respectful kids would be fine. In rescue, Fanny has been a perfect house guest: She’s sweet, friendly and has perfect potty practices. True to her breed, Fanny needs daily eye care and combing to maintain her beautiful coat, but she’s good about grooming. She’s looking for her final forever home. Could it be with you? Mature Adoption Fee $100. 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.

BUDDY…is an EXTREMELY LOVING BROWN TABBY DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is around 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs between 7 and 8 pounds and has a beautiful brown ticked tabby coat and bright gold eyes. Buddy has had a very difficult life and he is lucky to be in SPCR. He arrived into a local animal control as a ragged stray, missing one entire back leg (it looked as though it had been amputated at the hip at some point). He gets around fine and uses the litter box 100% but he certainly should not have been outside on his own in an urban area! On top of that (and starvation of course), Buddy had a severe bite wound to his face and the infection had penetrated into his jawbone. It took his foster folks several months to get that all under control and he is fine now, but BOY what a journey for everyone! Perhaps Buddy realizes how lucky he has had it because he sure is a NICE GUY. He has a sweet, laid-back personality and loves to take naps with his foster mom. He purrs pretty much all the time and simply ADORES attention and affection. Buddy does fine with other non-dominant cats but prefers people to felines for sure! He would be an excellent cat for either an adults only home or one with respectful older children who would shower him with love and doting. Because of his missing a leg, dogs and small kids would not be appropriate. This is truly a WONDERFUL KITTY and he does great at the vet’s too! :) Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

Lucy4

APPLICATION PENDING

LUCY… is an adorable 3 month old BLUE AND WHITE TABBY DSH KITTEN, spayed and has her claws.  Lucy was rescued from a farm with her brother. He was adopted and now Lucy is feeling lonely. Lucy, like most kittens, loves to play with just about anything. But she is the biggest snuggle bug as well.  Lucy adores being held, petted, and loved.  She is not a super-energetic kitten and has a perfect mix of play and snuggle in her.  She loves other cats, both adult and kitten.  She also has shown interest in the family dog.  Lucy is a very gentle, sweet girl who would do well in a home with kids to play with but who would also respect her needs. Lucy’s siblings at the farm resembled Siamese more than she does, but her beautiful gray color has marbling, making her pretty unique.  Mixed Breed Kitten Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN DE PERE, WI.
